Understanding complementary therapies is an 88-page online booklet developed by the Cancer Council.
Cancer Council (and Cancer Advisor) only support complementary therapies which have been found safe and effective in scientific studies. This booklet explores therapies such as meditation and relaxation, support groups, art therapy, music therapy, aromatherapy, acupuncture and yoga. It also looks at how these therapies can be used alongside your standard treatment for cancer.
Always speak with your treating team if you are planning on taking any treatment or therapies outside of your standard treatment for cancer.
