Combining the best of conventional medicine with the most effective complementary and alternative therapies to lessen the symptoms and side effects of cancer and related treatments.

At the Middlesex Health Cancer Center, our Integrative Medicine (IM) program helps us achieve our goal of treating the whole person - body, mind, and spirit. Integrative Medicine is not a substitute for cancer treatment but works alongside it to help with symptom management, stress relief, and more. 

Benefits of Integrative Medicine

IM therapies - or modalities - can have many benefits. They can relieve pain and nausea, help with neuropathy, improve your state of mind, and provide a space for relaxation.
