Just about the time this issue of Healthy & Wise was going to press, The Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center satellite office in Fairfield was getting ready to move into new, larger quarters at 111 Beach Road in Fairfield.
The new larger quarters will offer the same serene and comfortable surroundings for support groups, individual counseling, and physician consultation offices. Community oncologists will also establish a chemotherapy infusion center at the Breast Care Center site.
In this new office, The Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center at Bridgeport Hospital will continue to offer an entire spectrum of integrative therapies and services beyond the clinical care and coordination that form the core of its services.
Integrated therapies include —
- Special 10-week Exercise and Integrated Therapies Program for breast cancer patients
- Nutritional counseling
- Massage therapy
- Reiki Therapy (sometimes described as "hands-on healing energy.")
- Raindrop therapy with soothing, fragrant oils
- Wig and prosthesis services
- Support groups
- Education and outreach
