Expanded Offerings of Wellness Therapies

Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana is expanding our integrated services with new options in Wellness Therapy Sessions.

In addition to oncology-specialty massage, clients and / or caregivers can now choose from among three additional wellness therapies:

  • Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on method that supports every system in the body, releasing tension and enhancing your body’s own ability to heal.
  • Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “universal life force energy”.  It addresses both chronic and acute conditions, gently and powerfully promoting balance among all the body’s systems.
  • BodyTalk improves communication in the whole body-mind by redirecting the body’s natural healing ability through tapping.  This brings optimal balance and communication to all cells and systems.

All sessions are done fully clothed while lying on a massage table.

Clients and caregivers can schedule a time and then choose the wellness therapy they want when they come in for the session.

Call 260.484.9560 or 866.484.9560 today for an appointment for a unique experience in wellness!
