Complementary therapies

We do use aroma therapy, we use our physiotherapists a great deal with relaxation, massage, careful exercises. We have many patients with what you know as Lou Gehrig's Disease, the physiotherapists work very hard with them helping pain by moving paralyzed limbs and making joints more comfortable and so on. We don't use reflexology, we do use acupuncture from time to time. But I think really the creativity, well there's a creative writing group, there's a reminiscince group. Anything that that makes a person realize they are a person, they are not just a disease. You cannot control what can be severe manifold problems of advanced disease unless you see the person as a whole, but you can do it.
