Extra!! Extra!! Read All About This
I have found something so awesome that I have to share it with you. Now this post is filled with great information, you must promise me that you will share this with everyone - someone you know may need to know about this. What's the big deal? Well, it's a cancer center that I have envisioned now available in the greatest city of the whole wide world - New York. The Farber Center for Radiation Oncology is an excellent patient focused cancer facility in New York City. The moment you walk in, you are greeted warmly and what's even more amazing is that you feel more like you have entered into an oasis. You are definitely not in your typical cancer clinic or treatment facility where you wait for a long period of time to be seen by your doctor. Of course there may be a delay but that is not the norm as you will see for yourself that the waiting room area is not crowded. I can go on and on as I have visited this cancer center and I love it but I have to allow you to experience it for yourself.
What sets the Farber Center apart from the other facilities is not only their top of the line spa like environment but they have the state of the art technology which is a sought after treatment, by the rich and famous who travel to Europe to get the best - and you deserve the best. It gets better, they have partnered with Urben Zen to provide Integrative therapy to all of their patients on treatment which includes specific yoga therapies, Reiki therapy, and Oil therapy that deal with different aspects of the symptoms of all diseases. Urben Zen has designed the following yoga therapies to assit with the symptoms of pain, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, constipation and exhaustion. These therapies will now be provided at The Farber Center for Radiation Oncology and I am so excited!
Here's a direct snatch from their blog - once your cancer treatment is over The Farber Center for Radiation Oncology has joined forces with Urban Zen’s integrative therapy program (UZIT) and created OHE (optimal healing environment) classes to create a place/space where you can explore the issues that brought you treatment and to do what you can to prevent you or your loved ones from going through it again.
