What are Integrative Therapies?
At Hospice of Palm Beach County, we serve our patients needs in a variety of ways – not only on the physical level but also on the emotional, spiritual and cognitive levels. This is known as Integrative Therapies or "complementary therapies" which make use of gentle, non-invasive treatments.
Integrative Therapies effectively and safely integrate with traditional medical modalities. They do not replace traditional medical therapies; but they do integrate with the medical care that is provided to our patients, by using safe, non-medical therapies to achieve comfort and a general sense of well-being. We believe that it is possible to experience a sense of wholeness, even when the physical body is experiencing an illness.Hospice of Palm Beach County's Integrative Therapies Department provides a spectrum of gentle, holistic treatment options, which integrate seamlessly into the medical care provided to our patients.
