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!
Supporters like you are creating opportunities to ensure people touched by cancer in our community receive the resources and services they need. It is our hope you will join us in supporting their tremendous efforts.
We continue to be appreciative of the support from our community, and would be so delighted to know if you are planning an upcoming event in support of Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana. Please give us a call at 260-484-9560.
