“Expressive therapy focuses on healing through a creative lens,” a news release said. “Based on the interrelationship of body, mind and emotion, it uses movement, art, writing and music to further the emotional, physical and spiritual integration of the individual.”
The program is designed to provide relaxation, stress reduction and insight for its participants. The goals of the program are to enhance wellness and explore how to navigate through the complex emotions and concerns of the cancer journey with a sense of empowerment.
This program is sponsored by the Sutter Cancer Center in Sacramento through funding from the Sutter Medical Center Foundation.
