New! Cancer Support Series
Make a Donation
This 12-session series is intended for our service members and their spouse/partner and parent who may be working with a cancer diagnosis. Pain, anxiety, fatigue, stress, sleep disturbance, grief and the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, present significant challenges for service members and their families. For the spouses/partners who love and support the person undergoing cancer, the anxiety, stress and grief result in a heavy emotional and physical impact as well as disrupted sleep and ongoing worry. We believe it is important to include support to the spouses/partners and parents who may be in a caregiver role and need assistance.
This series of 12 treatment sessions is accomplished through a multi-modal approach of care. Utilizing Acupuncture, CranioSacral therapy and Healing Touch therapy in conjunction with Guided Imagery and home care tools, the goal is to assist in relieving symptoms and support the body’s capacity for self-healing.
Please let us help. Call our clinic at (970) 776 – VETS or send us an email.

Guided imagery, sometimes called “guided meditation,” “visualization,” “mental rehearsal,” or “guided self-hypnosis,” is a gentle but powerful technique that focuses the mind and imagination in proactive, positive ways that calm the body.
Studies show that mindful-based programs may provide viable and effective interventions targeting high stress levels, anxiety, sleep quality, and autonomic balance. Healing Warriors Program uses Belleruth Naparstek’s AM, ACSW, Guided Imagery, which is currently used in over 80 VAMC’s and Veteran centers, at Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Hospital and U.S. military bases, hospitals and installations around the world.
