Cancer Support Services

Medical care focuses on a curative treatment plan, and our services are supportive of that care. THe Healing Garden center provides high quality, evidence based therapies in a magnificent healing environment, located on eight acres of lovingly created gardens on a wooded hillside in Harvard, Massachusetts. Here, without reminders of the disease and medical interventions, clients can begin treatments feeling calmer and more relaxed. Click here for a photo tour of our facility.

We offer:

  • mind-body medicine for relaxation and restoration of the body’s energy flow
  • education about choices that contribute to health, such as offerings on nutrition, stress management, and exercise
  • expressive therapies for self-expression and processing/releasing emotions
  • modalities that help clients regain control of their lives, both during and after medical treatments

“ A breast cancer diagnosis is supremely disorienting. I suddenly experienced myself and the world as 'different' — at some new and alien remove from what had always been. Everyone at The Healing Garden gets that; there’s no need to act 'normal.' The staff and culture allowed me to explore, understand, and make peace with what was to be my 'new normal' — through, and beyond, the realities of cancer.”

Debra, former Healing Garden client

You are a person, not a disease, and you can live well with cancer, and beyond. We are here to help you.
