WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - The idea is to treat the whole patient, and not just medically.

Monica Behan of the Compassionate Care Foundation says it’s important to treat the whole person, mind, body, and spirit.

She says her organization has helped 100 patients at Samaritan Medical Center’s Walker Center for Cancer Care since starting up in June.

Watch the video for her interview during Samaritan’s Morning Checkup segment on 7 News This Morning.

Therapies include reiki, acupuncture, massage therapy, group therapy, nutritional counseling, yoga, and breath work. They’re designed to bring the patient to a state of balance and inner peace, which can help healing.
