Integrative Health Services

Our Integrative Health Services are available to both men and women, and are available at the Women’s Center for Wellness and John A. DeQuattro Cancer Center.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is meant to stimulate the body’s natural healing process through non-medicinal means by way of inserting thin, sterile, disposable needles into specific areas of the body. This ancient practice from traditional Chinese medicine seeks to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself. It is commonly used to treat pain, stress, allergies, digestive disorders, insomnia and many other conditions. ECHN’s acupuncturist is state-licensed and nationally board-certified.

This program is currently offered through the Women’s Center for Wellness. Prices range from $60.00-$100.00 per session.

A community acupuncture clinic for cancer patients is also available at the John A. DeQuatrro Cancer Center, and appointments can be made through the Women’s Center for Wellness. Prices are based on a sliding scale of $20.00-$40.00 per session.

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction, performed by “laying on hands” by the therapist. It is based on the idea of channeling energy to help with the healing process. It consists of gentle techniques to provide relaxation and a sense of balance. It may be helpful for relieving stress, improving well-being, decreasing anxiety, tension and perception of pain.

Reiki is currently offered through the Women’s Center for Wellness. Prices range from $40.00-$60.00 per session.

Therapeutic Massage Therapy

Massage can promote both physical healing and deep relaxation of body and mind, often increasing your sense of energy and well-being. You work in partnership with a licensed massage therapist to determine the approach and techniques that work best for you. 30, 60 and 90-minute massage sessions are available, including our specialty massage programs below.

Pregnancy massage focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as your body adapts to the new life growing within you. Pregnancy massage therapy is a healthy way to reduce stress, promote wellness, and relieve the common discomforts experienced during pregnancy. Every massage session is designed to progress to address the unique changes experienced during each trimester of pregnancy.

Postpartum Massage

Postpartum massage may help speed recovery from the physical and emotional stress of childbirth by bringing relief to sore muscles. This soothing massage may also help reduce the new stress of caring for a newborn.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an advanced therapeutic method that has been proven to stimulate the lymphatic system. Our Certified MLD therapists use gentle rhythmic movements which help to eliminate waste from the body, returning vital proteins to the blood stream, which is crucial to our health and well-being. MLD can be extremely beneficial for cancer patients by restoring balance and reduce pain caused by inflammation, radiation or chemotherapy. In addition, MLD can be beneficial for post-traumatic injuries, to promote proper drainage of burns, wounds, stretch marks and wrinkles, as well as the reduction in the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and other autoimmune disorders.

MLD is currently offered through the Women’s Center for Wellness and the John A. DeQuattro Cancer Center.

Pet Therapy

Pet therapy is provided by certified pet therapy owners and their dogs. Pet therapy is currently available through the John A. DeQuattro Cancer Center.
