Spread the news about Sonoma's newest resource for cancer patients! I personally am thrilled about this amazing opportunity, as I am the Naturopathic Doctor involved in the program! Now available as outpatient services offered at the Sonoma Valley Hospital, Cancer Support Sonoma offers many alternative therapies at discounted prices to Sonoma Valley residents and beyond.
As described on the Cancer Support Sonoma website: "The program offers complementary therapies to help cancer patients reduce the symptoms of treatment such as fatigue, nausea, depression and anxiety. We offer a variety of therapies including acupuncture, oncology massage, nutrition counseling, naturopathic counseling (vitamin/herb/medication review), jin shin jytsu (Japanese acupressure), Feldenkrais, guided imagery, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and sound healing.
Services are provided in a private suite of rooms, located on the third floor of Sonoma Valley Hospital, which has been remodeled to offer a healing environment. Our goal is to help cancer patients get back to more fully living their lives.
