Yoga instructor Ann Marie Turo helps Dana-Farber patients learn yoga.

While the medical treatments for cancer can help fight off deadly disease, these life-saving therapies can also cause physical and emotional side effects. For some patients, the use of integrative therapies can help ease or eliminate treatment-related symptoms.

In this Cancer Conversations podcast episode – the first of the series – David Rosenthal, MD, former clinical director of Dana-Farber’s Leonard P. Zakim Center for Integrative Therapies, discusses acupuncture, meditation, yoga, massage, and other forms of integrative therapy.
