In addition to standard, conventional medical treatments like surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and other targeted treatments, a number of other complementary therapies have helped women manage symptoms, relieve stress and improve overall well-being. Acupuncture, aromatherapy, massage therapy, energy medicine and yoga are just a few of the therapies which have shown results. These therapies may be used in addition to standard, conventional medical treatments, but do not treat the cancer itself.


It’s important to discuss the possible benefits and risks of these types of alternative and complementary therapies (meaning they are not the main source of treatment) with your health care team.
