Complementary Care

A child’s physical well-being is closely linked to his or her emotional well-being. St. Mary’s Complementary Care Program provides a range of services that complement or enhance the healthcare a child receives at St. Mary’s. It combines the body, mind and spirit to treat and prevent illness, aid in recovery, promote health, manage pain, and reduce stress.

Complementary Care offers an array of innovative and relaxing services and alternative therapies such as Reiki, therapeutic touch, massage therapy, music therapy, yoga therapy, acupressure and acupuncture, aromatherapy, tai chi, guided imagery, medication, herbs and nutrition. Complementary Care services are provided in the hospital, at home or within the community.
