About Wellness House
Wellness House offers complete cancer wellness support every step of the way — for you and your loved ones.
In 1990, Wellness House opened with a single purpose: to better the lives of people living with cancer and the people close to them. Today, we offer a variety of programs and services — exercise classes, nutrition seminars, support groups and more — that complement the treatment from your doctors and specialists. It’s a whole-person approach to healing, and it’s offered at no cost to you.
Our approach to cancer wellness
Cancer is hard and takes a toll on you and those around you. And you are more than your diagnosis. Psychosocial care can heal your whole self. Our unique approach to cancer wellness takes all aspects of living with cancer into account — from the physical to the emotional, and everything in between.
Wellness House envisions a community where all people affected by cancer thrive. Offered at no cost, and as a complement to medical treatment, our programs educate, support and empower participants in order to help them improve their physical and emotional well-being.
