In February, The Cancer Wellness Center (TCWC) began seeing cancer patients and survivors for a range of healing therapies at their new clinic at 3921 Steck Avenue, Suite A100, in Austin. Their diverse holistic complementary services include oncology massage therapy; manual lymphatic drainage (MLD); cancer life coaching; support group therapy; Reiki; guided meditation; and acupuncture, which has become increasingly popular as part of an integrative approach to treating the symptoms and manifestations of cancer as the side effects of Western treatments.
TCWC was founded by licensed acupuncturist Michelle Schreiber, who has the belief that complementary care is an important approach for cancer patients and survivors. Schreiber has been practicing acupuncture since 1997, and she also co-owns Sage Acupuncture, in Austin. She has undergone advanced training and certification in cancer care and in women’s health and fertility. Along with Schreiber, TCWC staff includes licensed acupuncturist Laura Berkebile, integrative cancer coach and Reiki practitioner Beth Foster, licensed massage therapists Geri Ruane, Susan Prins, Ashley Hiatt and Kelly Bien. Meditation instructor Christine Wetzl offers free Meditation Instruction on Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m.
