Mind-Body Medicine for Gallbladder Cancer
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we believe it is important to keep you strong in every way – body, mind and spirit – as you undergo gallbladder cancer treatment.
Many patients diagnosed with gallbladder cancer struggle with the emotional aspects of the disease and its treatment. You may experience a wide range of emotions, including depression, anxiety, anger and/or fear. Our trained and licensed mind-body therapists are there for you and your caregiver to cope with the emotional and psychological stresses as you undergo treatment. The mind-body medicine program offers a range of individual and group learning opportunities that explore the connection between emotional, mental, social, spiritual and behavioral factors that can directly affect the healing process.
We offer a wide variety of activities, classes and relaxation therapies to reduce stress and improve quality of life. The mind-body medicine services available to patients, caregivers and their families include:
- Individual and relationship counseling sessions
- Gallbladder cancer support groups
- Relaxation and guided imagery training
- Deep breathing training
- Stress management
- Laughter therapy
- Reiki therapy
The mind-body medicine services at CTCA can help you regain a positive attitude and renew feelings of hope and health. Our therapists work closely with your entire CTCA care team to teach you techniques to cope with any physical or emotional issues that may come up during your treatment. In addition, they can connect you with qualified licensed mind-body practitioners in your area once you return home.
