Mindfulness Meditation and Guided Relaxation are powerful tools that can help manage stress, find inner peace, and improve mental function. In addition, they help build self-control, compassion, and empathy. Regular practice can improve both mental and physical health.

In each class, you will learn and practice skills to calm the body and mind through guided relaxation techniques and breathing exercises. Each session will focus on a specific area of health and wellness, such as strengthening the immune system, cardiac health, stress reduction, pain management, restful sleep, and deep relaxation. 

All patients and community members are welcome. Cost is FREE. No prior experience is required. Be sure to check out our next session! Download the flyer

    Jin Shin Jyutsu facilitates the body’s profound healing capacity by balancing energy. Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments support the body, mind, and spirit through non-invasive, gentle touch that is administered while the individual is fully clothed. While similar to acupuncture and acupressure, Jin Shin Jyutsu does not use needles, pressure, or rubbing.

     RSVP is suggested: Call 1-888-996-9644 to register.

    Meeting our nutritional needs on a daily basis is important for optimizing our health and wellbeing but is particularly important while undergoing cancer treatment. That’s because chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery place extra demands on the body and certain treatments can lead to side effects making it difficult to meet your body’s nutrient needs.

    Drop-ins welcome. However, space is limited.
    To reserve your spot please call (415) 925-7853.
