Mission Statement

Our philosophy is that a holistic approach to health and wellness will afford you the very best chance at great cancer outcomes. We utilize evidence based best practice in integrative medicine - combining traditional medical care with supportive complementary care - taking advantage of the interrelated functions of the mind and the body as it affects health.


The Virginia Thurston Healing Garden Cancer Support Center is the premiere provider of integrative oncology care in Massachusetts, offering cancer support programs immersed in 8 acres of serene woodlands in the heart of Harvard, MA. Our facility offers the optimal setting for educational opportunities, programs and services that are research-based best practices from support groups to expressive and integrative therapies, and individual counseling. For almost 20 years the Healing Garden's goal has been to optimize the quality of life for all those affected by cancer: men, women, and their caregivers, regardless of cancer type, prognosis, or financial ability to pay for services. We serve clients from over 165 cities and town who range from newly diagnosed to 15+ years post treatment.
