Mind-Body Medicine for Testicular 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 testicular cancer treatment.
It is normal for patients who receive a diagnosis of testicular cancer to feel a wide range of emotions, including depression, anxiety, anger and/or fear. You may worry about your future fertility or your appearance after testicular surgery. Our trained and licensed mind-body therapists are there for you and your caregiver to cope with the emotional and psychological aspects of testicular cancer and its treatment. The mind-body medicine program offers a range of individual and group learning opportunities to help patients and their loved ones 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, including testicular cancer support groups, counseling, classes and relaxation therapies to reduce stress and improve quality of life. Services 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
The mind-body medicine program at CTCA can help you regain a positive attitude and renew feelings of hope and health. Our mind-body therapists work closely with your entire CTCA testicular cancer 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 testicular cancer support groups and qualified practitioners in your area once you return home.
