Cancer

How will I navigate the path of cancer?

No one realizes how life-altering three little words can be until they hear them: “You have cancer.” When your doctor said these words, it felt like the person you’d always been suddenly ceased to exist. The dis-ease in your body turned your world upside-down, and you’ve been on an emotional roller coaster ever since, rattled by fear, anger, sadness, and despair. It just doesn’t seem fair. There are so many things left to experience in your life, but now it feels like all your dreams and goals are on hold. Worse, you feel you can only stand by helplessly as the possibility of achieving your dreams disappears.

You’re also consumed by confusion. Why has this happened to you? How will you tell your friends and family? What are your options? Are intense medical treatments like radiation and chemotherapy actually worth it? What do alternative medicines have to offer? Will you make it through this? You have so many questions, but it seems like you can’t get any straight answers as you get shuffled between doctors, specialists, and health insurance agents. On top of that, you’re spending hours seeking explanations and advice on the Internet, but all the conflicting information you’re finding only makes you feel more frightened and alone.

At Kwan-Yin Healing Arts Center, we offer numerous, varied healing modalities to support your body and mind in moving through cancer. More importantly, our knowledgeable and experienced practitioners offer compassion for you and what you’re going through right now. They will address all your questions and concerns; they understand the decisions you need to make; and they are ready to walk this new path with you, every step of the way.
