A whole-person approach to cancer care

At Ellis Medicine, we strive to care for your physical, mental and emotional needs.

Using alternative therapies like Healing Touch, Reiki and more, we can help you improve your quality of life. These techniques can be used safely alongside treatments like chemotherapy. Although they do not cure cancer, they are proven to be safe and effective ways to:

  • Manage and relieve treatment side effects like nausea
  • Improve your mood, stamina and appetite
  • Reduce pain, stress, anxiety and fatigue
  • Improve the quality of your sleep
  • Help make the cancer experience easier
Based on your side effects and challenges, we can help you determine which alternative therapies are right for you.
