Complimentary and Alternative Modalities

Caring for the Whole Person: Body, Mind, and Spirit

In addition to providing medical care, Brookside Inn offers an array of complementary and alternative healthcare services such as massages, Chinese Medicine, Aromatherapy, Reiki, and Reflexology. We also employ a Spiritual Services Provider to serve the needs of the spirit.

Massage

Massage brings the power of conscious touch to awaken the body and soul, thereby reducing stress and anxiety, calming the nervous system and improving circulation.

Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture, is commonly used for relaxation, pain management, and immune support.

Aromatherapy

Clinical Aromatherapy provides an aromatic influence commonly used to reduce agitation and anxiety. Aromatherapy also supports the immune system and promotes healthy skin quality.

Reflexology

Reflexology is an alternative form of applying gentle pressure points on the feet to promote relaxation and a healthier balance to the body’s systems.

Spiritual Wellness

Our Spiritual Wellness Program, called “On Eagles Wings”, is led by our Spiritual Services Provider. Through the power of compassionate listening, companionship and prayer as requested, we provide a strong and impactful spiritual service program that assists patients and residents through the transitions they face.
