We’ve provided life-changing relief to cancer patients over 50,000 times. 

Every hospital in the world needs integrative medical treatments combined with Western medicine for the most effective healing and relief.

Study after study is now confirming integrative medical treatments have a powerful effect on how cancer patients respond to traditional Western medicine. Treatments such as acupuncture provide proven pain and stress-relief while massage therapy soothes and relaxes patients undergoing chemotherapy or surgery. These methods are needed for every cancer patient in the world so their suffering can be greatly reduced.  Angie’s Spa grant funding is crucial for these cancer patients. Even with all the evidence supporting these benefical  treatments, they are still NOT covered by insurance.

Meet Angie

Angie’s Spa has been named in memory of Angie Levy, who tragically lost her life to metastatic breast cancer in November, 2007 at the young age of 36. Diagnosed at age 27, Angie spent the next 9 years trying to live a normal life while waging the long battle for remission and a cure. During that time she was able to graduate from Wharton School of Business, further her career at the banking firm JP Morgan as well as being active in a number of meaningful charities.

It was Angie’s upbeat attitude and love for life’s small indulgences that inspired the idea of Angie’s Spa. We know Angie would have loved the idea of doing something so beneficial and special for a patient undergoing cancer treatment.

”I can’t believe I’m sitting here getting chemo and feeling so good.”

“ The massage therapist provided a back/neck/spine massage due to my posture, tension in shoulders, and pain between my shoulders. During the treatment she listened to her soul/intuition and provided relief that carried over to my soul&heart and left me with a smile, less stress, and NO PAIN between my shoulders. As a cancer warrior this lifted my spirit and I’m grateful for the opportunity Angie’s Spa provided me outside my Western medical treatment. I feel like a person who has cancer, not a cancer patient who is a person. Thank you.”

-J. Turner, Husband and Cancer Patient Hartford Hospital (Hartford,CT)

 

” This morning I experienced my first massage-wow! The tension is gone from my neck, shoulders and I feel warmth and rejuvenation. What a wonderful and restorative part of medical treatments. Thank you my back is still smiling,”

-P. Turner, Wife and Caregiver Hartford Hospital (Hartford, CT)

 

“I am very grateful for the massage therapy provided at Northridge Hospital’s Leavey Cancer Center. My cancer treatment procedure requires that I extend my left arm over my head and extend that position for extended periods of time. A long ago shoulder injury makes it painful for me to do this, but I know that relief is just around the corner from the caring and capable massage therapist always available after my procedure. It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that for me, this service has been invaluable. Thank you to massage therapists Fernando, Jassenia, and Kendra for easing my pain and Angie’s Spa for making it all possible. “

“The massage therapists are so committed and compassionate. They create a warm atmosphere. When patients come they are scared, but the massage therapists make us feel better.”

“Angie’s Spa has been a WONDERFUL experience in my recovery from breast cancer. The staff and doctors are very caring. I would highly recommend to anyone recovering from any cancer illness who is trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle.”

“I am a lung cancer patient at Fitchburg Cancer Center(MA), my radiation treatment started on April 10, 2018. I could no longer swallow my own saliva. I could no longer eat or drink anything. My doctor at Dana Farber suggested a feeding tube be placed in me for the remainder of my radiation.

After 2 treatments of acupuncture within 48 hours my PAIN WAS GONE. I could swallow again and my pain went from 10+ to 0. This was my LIFE SAVER. I have now had 20 radiation treatments on my neck and throat PAIN FREE because of acupuncture. Thank you Acupuncture.”

-S. Lung cancer patient at Fitchburg Cancer Center (Fitchburg, MA)

“ My wife, Virginia, was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in August of 2014. The oncologist admitted Virginia the following week to Hartford Hospital(Hartford, CT) for intense chemotherapy treatments that lasted several months. Our nurse navigator, Barbara, was a Godsend and was sure to educate us as to the process and resources available to cancer patients at Hartford. One such resource was Angie’s Spa, a non-profit that works with their partner hospitals to provide free massage and other therapies to patients undergoing cancer care treatments. Barbara helped arrange for a massage session and that was the beginning of a wonderful friendship with her therapist. I would often call to check on her and was told she would have to call me back as she was getting a massage. Angie’s Spa introduced us to the benefit of this type of therapy. My wife once commented that it was “better than morphine.” Sadly, my V succumbed to her disease but she had a request as she was receiving hospice care in our home. “Do you think the massage therapist could make a house call?” Of course she did, not on Angie’s Spa dime, but we would have never met her  without the folks at Angie’s Spa. A few days before she passed I asked her if there was any particular cause that she wanted to name for donations. I think you know the answer.”

“After my Angie’s Spa massage treatments, it was like a weight had been lifted. You don’t realize how badly you need a massage until you get one. I wanted to take a nap; it was so relaxing. From the atmosphere of the MediSpa to the people, to the treatment itself, it’s all very relaxing and welcoming.” -J.H., patient at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, MD

“Joya, massage therapist, is wonderful. Kind, empathetic and highly qualified. What a wonderful surprise for my first day of chemotherapy.”-R.K.

“I am a cancer patient at the Leavey Cancer Center who recently went through radiation treatment. I want to express my sincere gratitude to Angie’s Spa for providing services that are so incredibly helpful for somebody going through cancer treatment. It was so nice to focus on something therapeutic and calming during a period of tremendous anxiety.”

-Karen Stein, Northridge Hospital Medical Center (Northridge, CA)
