“I was having severe panic attacks. I was really going through it mentally and physically, and I just couldn’t handle it,” says Alex. Using holistic techniques like reflexology, reiki and aromatherapy, the integrative health nurses were able to support Alex in managing her anxiety. “I am so thankful that I had this other therapeutic outlet there. It really got me through a very stressful time.”
