Aratika Cancer Trust works to educate people diagnosed with cancer, and their whānau, about the benefits of integrative care through all stages of the cancer journey including diagnosis, treatment, recovery and beyond. Integrative care involves the use of complementary therapeutic modalities, alongside conventional medical treatments for cancer, to enhance physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
