I might have been broken, but mended rather quickly with my desire to fight and the amazing support system that the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center provided me with.

Integrative Medicine Programs

Integrative medicine therapies empower cancer patients to take an active role in their healing and improve the quality of their lives. Meditation, stress reduction, guided imagery, yoga, Jin Shin Jyutsu, reflexology, Reiki, acupuncture, massage, aromatherapy and therapeutic touch are just a few of the approaches utilized at Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center to help relax the minds and bodies of our patients during and after treatment.

Many of these techniques are also taught during other educational classes, such as the eight-week I Cancer-Vive program. For a monthly list of integrative medicine programs and schedules, please see our class calendars >

Patients can also rely on Atlantic Health System Integrative Medicine, which offers individual assessment sessions by holistic medical staff, one-on-one treatments by highly-qualified practitioners, and classes and courses that enable participants to better access their own healing potential.
