"Hello Janet. I found the advice, instruction and treatment very beneficial. I noted the evening after we met that the pain in my breast and arm had significantly decreased. I also was quite surprised to feel the difference in size of the incision scar. The area inside the breast that I had been concerned about interfering with my ability to self-examine was so much less evident. And after only one treatment! I have been following your instruction and massaging regularly, and pain and tenderness are still diminished at the half-way point of radiation treatments. I enjoyed meeting and working with you, Janet, and am grateful for the assistance your treatment provided. I look forward to seeing you again at an appropriate stage in my treatment." - Diane
Voices of Support
“For far too long, disciplines have worked in isolation without communication and our patients have often felt caught between differing therapeutic philosophies, often to their detriment. This is a wonderful initiative. An integrative program will help provide a much needed bridge.”
