Wellness is a word you do not often hear in relation to cancer. At the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara, we are committed to help those living with cancer to take an active role in achieving what we call "wellness" - a calmer mind, a healthier body, a strengthened immune system, and a renewed capacity to cope. A wide range of activities, classes, and complementary medicine services (i.e. yoga, nutrition, healing touch) are offered through our Wellness Program. This unique supportive care program serves as a bridge between standard cancer care and the non-medical aspects of healing.

The Cancer Center’s Wellness department is also committed to heightening cancer awareness and reducing the burden of cancer in our community. To accomplish these goals, we offer the highest-quality hereditary cancer risk counseling, medical education, and cancer prevention programs. Our Resource Library, staffed by trained professionals, serves as a multi-media education center for patients, family members, healthcare professionals and the general public seeking cancer information and personalized assistance.
