about cwc services

At Cape Wellness Collaborative, we believe in caring for the whole person — not just the disease or symptom. Integrative medicine weaves natural treatments such as acupuncture, massage, and yoga into your overall care plan. Most of these therapies are not covered by insurance. CWC connects people facing cancer directly with local practitioners who provide these therapies, and we cover the cost. All of our holistic health services and programs are based on the latest scientific evidence

 

Approximately 2,100 people are diagnosed with cancer each year on Cape Cod.  Our goal is to help you feel better and give you options for taking an active role in your wellbeing.
