Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center (Taussig) Outcomes
At Cleveland Clinic, exceptional cancer care is complemented by a wide range of services that go beyond the medical needs of patients – addressing their emotional, mental and financial needs. These important services, which are not covered by insurance, are free to patients, thanks to the generosity of supporters who want to enhance our patients’ well-being. These services include Art Therapy, Music Therapy, The Wig Boutique, The Patient Resource and Education Center, 4th Angel Mentoring Program , Yoga and Reiki among many others programs designed to support the well being of our patients and their families.
Reiki therapy is conveniently available to patientsa Taussig Cancer Center. Reiki is a very gentle "hands on" touch therapy that reduces stress and anxiety, increases relaxation and energy levels, and promotes healing and a sense of positive well-being. Trained and certified Reiki Master Therapists provide these services to Taussig patients and their family members. Each Therapist works two days per week. Most of these services are provided in the chemotherapy infusion suites, and some services are also provided in the Reiki Room in the Reflections Center. The team identifies patients for service by rounding on the infusion room floors and through referrals from other professional caregivers.
Mindfulness Meditation Therapy
Mindfulness meditation helps cultivate mindfulness, promotes relaxation, and reduces stress. Meditation is offered to patients, their families and our caregivers in the Meditation Room in the Cancer Center.
