When it comes to battling cancer, patients are reassured when their healthcare providers pull out every weapon in the arsenal.

At the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, our evidence-based Integrative Medicine program taps into complementary therapies in addition to the conventional cancer treatments of surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

Among these treatments are:

• Acupuncture

• Qi gong

“We are committed to healing the mind, body and spirit of every patient,” says Maria Gonzalez, BS, MPHc, administrator of the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center. "By helping them connect to a broad range of proven therapies, we ultimately give them more control over their own destinies.”
