Integrative Therapies at Sharp Grossmont Hospital
Treating the whole person — body, mind and spirit
We believe that complete healing extends beyond a physical cure, and that a hands-on approach to care can help the healing process. We focus on creating a soothing environment that supports you during what can often be a difficult time.
Clinical aromatherapy uses essential herbal oils to stimulate the sense of smell, which produces a calming effect and helps with relaxation. This therapy is often used prior to MRIs and during a hospital stay.
Comfort hand massage
This therapy creates healing energies that help with well-being, vitality and enhancing the body's restorative powers to relieve stress and tension.
Healing Touch relies on gentle, noninvasive touch to support the human energy system. This therapy helps to restore balance, alleviate pain and expedite the healing process, as well as reduce anxiety and depression.
This Japanese energy therapy can help with conditions such as stress, chronic pain and the side effects of chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Practitioners use their hands on or above your body to promote a multisystem relaxation response involving the body, mind and spirit.
Pet therapy offers visits from one of our certified therapy dogs. These specially trained canines are known for their ability to put you at ease and have an overall calming effect, often lowering blood pressure, and bring joy and smiles throughout our hospital.
