Northern Westchester Hospital, Cancer Treatment & Wellness Center, 400 E. Main Street
I work as the Integrative Medicine Holistic RN at Northern Westchester Hospital's Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center, in service to our Cancer Wellness Program. I am a Board-Certified Medical-Surgical RN and Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in Oncology Medical Massage and safe touch therapies for the acutely ill.
I started the Oncology Massage Therapy program at NWH in 2015, writing the hospital's policy and procedure to the standards of the S4OM. I am passionate about providing safe therapeutic bodwork for patients affected by cancer and its treatments. Any cancer patient who has a physician affiliated with our hospital may take part in our free health & wellness program and receive 8 sessions of their choice, including massage therapy, reflexology, acupressure, acupuncture and Reiki energy healing. In addition, I teach mindfulness meditation classes at the cancer center to foster enhanced coping and resiliency skills. I am blessed to provide services for our patients. Each day I witness the many benefits that massage and mindfulness offer - patients report reductions in stress, anxiety, pain and fatigue and improved overall comfort and quality of life. This is why I love my work.
