Mind-Body Medicine for Skin Cancer
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we believe in comprehensively addressing all of your needs – body, mind and spirit – as you go through treatment for skin cancer.
You may be worried about the side effects of treatment. Your family or caregivers may have their own set of concerns and emotions. Our mind-body medicine program is designed to support you and your family during skin cancer treatment. The program offers a range of individual and group learning opportunities to help patients and their loved ones explore how emotional, mental, social, spiritual and behavioral factors can support the healing process.
We offer a wide variety of skin cancer support groups, classes, activities and relaxation therapies to reduce stress and improve quality of life. The mind-body medicine programs available to patients, caregivers and their families include:
- Individual and relationship counseling sessions
- Support groups
- Relaxation and guided imagery training
- Deep breathing training
- Stress management
- Laughter therapy
- Reiki therapy
Our mind-body therapists work closely with your entire skin cancer care team and are here to support you in making ongoing care decisions. In addition, they can connect you with skin cancer support groups and qualified mind-body medicine practitioners in your area once you return home.
