Holistic Health Center
Offering holistic counseling and services to our patients since 2008, we have established a series of treatment modalities that successfully complement surgery. We enhance the care of our patients before and after treatment, utilizing integrative medicine, yoga, reiki and other healing therapies.
We enhance our patients’ quality of life through healing reg imens that address mind, body, and spirit. We view “yoga” as an all-encompassing term, including breathing techniques, guided imagery, meditation, and deep relaxation. We have developed a protocol for gentle yoga poses that help our patients manage their stress and pain levels, while improving recovery times.
Reiki is an ancient healing practice involving therapeutic touch. A Reiki practitioner aims to balance energy fields in and around the body by systematically placing hands on or over the body. As a complementary cancer therapy, Reiki is effective in lowering stress, promoting relaxation, and reducing pain.
Prepare for Surgery
For patients preparing for surgery, as well as chemotherapy and radiation, our practice recommends various programs, including Peggy Huddleston’s Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster workshop, our guided imagery technique, and pelvic floor strengthening exercises.
Sexual Rehabilitation Program
Sexual health complications are sometimes a side effect of treatments for urologic oncology conditions including surgery, radiation, and hormone therapy. Dr. Scherr and The Department of Urology at Weill Cornell offer comprehensive treatment to patients who are dealing with sexual dysfunction disorders.
