The Integrative & Creative Arts Therapy program at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute offers monthly support groups — as well as individual sessions* — complimentary for oncology patients. The program includes both music and art therapies that provide an innovative, evidence-based approach to symptom management and emotional support. Our creative arts therapists use live music and art media during the therapy process, to improve a cancer patient’s overall quality of life and well being – physiologically, emotionally neurologically and spiritually.
