Support for Mind and Body

  1. Anxiety: Progressive Muscle Relaxation and Guided Imagery
  2. Art Therapy, Dance Therapy, Music Therapy, and Imagery

    Art, dance, music—all are examples of mind-body therapy. Although these therapies do not cure cancer, they provide an outlet for emotions and can improve mental and physical well-being.

  3. Can Optimism Make a Difference in Your Life?

    A growing number of scientific studies indicate that optimistic people tend to live longer and have better physical and mental health than pessimistic people.

  4. Distraction as Alternative Therapy for Cancer

    Distraction does not cure cancer, but it helps push patients’ minds away from unpleasant thoughts, procedures, and pain.

  5. Maintaining Quality of Life When You Have Cancer
  6. Physical Exercise for Cancer

    Exercise is an effective activity for many people with cancer. Scientists are still learning about how physical activity helps cancer patients and what impact it has on the immune system.

  7. Yoga as Alternative Therapy for Cancer

    Yoga means "union"—a union of the mind, body, and spirit—and uses slow movement, precise posture, meditation, and breathing exercises to reach a state of relaxation.
