U of A Cancer Center Touch Therapies

May 20, 2012 ,

I recently discovered in my hood the touch therapy services of the U of A Cancer Center on Campbell Avenue in Tucson.  The services are not limited to patients, but if a patient needs a service, a non patient must be willing to give the treatment to the patient as part of the terms.  My own experience has been with Justine Robbins, LMT, who has given me three lymphatic drainage treatments in the last 10 days.  She is skilled and pleasant, taking her appointments in the spacious rooms designed for the purpose. For my third session she brought special cups, like the acupuncturists use, and did my treatment with a little extra vacuum power. I am feeling “super spring cleaned” after treatments with Justine. I will return to her on a regular basis, maybe once a month for the wellness benefits.  I might do craniosacral treatments next month.

Justine is part of a team offering reflexology, acupuncture, craniosacral, Reiki, and Swedish massage as well as movement classes in yoga, laughter stretching,Tai Chi and Qi Gong to patients at the cancer center.  Members of the community are invited to fill in the therapists schedules when patients are not booking them.  I love the way the community benefits from as well as supports the efforts of the clinic at this healing facility. To schedule touch therapies call the volunteer desk, which is staffed at times by the capable and hospitable Adam Koker, pictured here at the reception desk. Adam told me about two different programs that offer financial assistance to patients who can’t afford the therapies that will help them recover. I am truly pleased to see a hospital operate such a program. Payment is taken in cash or check, and is processed by the volunteer desk before your treatment.  The number to call for touch therapies appointments is (520) 694-1812.  This is one reason Tucson is evolving as a healthy place to live.ImageImageImageImage
