Cancer and Healing Arts

Art to Help You Heal

Healing arts are creative practices that promote healing, wellness, coping skills and personal change. Healing arts can include music, art, dance/movement and poetry/writing. The therapeutic effects are well studied to comfort patients, reduce stress and enhance healing. You don’t have to be an artist or have any experience whatsoever to benefit from healing arts. It gives you an opportunity to relax and have a creative outlet, feel listened to and express how you’re feeling during cancer treatment.  

Our multimedia program is designed to help you. Multiple studies have found healing arts can reduce anxiety, depress symptoms and even pain in cancer patients.
