LifeSpark Cancer Resources is a Colorado non-profit organization that supports individuals with cancer and their caregivers. You and your loved ones deserve peace and healing while going through cancer. LifeSpark’s Reiki and Healing Touch treatments are gentle and supportive, and offered at no cost.
We have three programs.
- Our remote program, begun during covid to keep everyone safe, has been so successful that it will continue indefinitely. Our LifeSpark providers meet over Zoom with the individuals they are serving, and the sessions occur remotely. Eight weeks of Reiki or Healing Touch sessions are offered for individuals with cancer, and five weeks are offered for caregivers. 91% of those responding to surveys said that remote sessions were very helpful.
- Our in-person program will slowly be reintroduced as safety conditions allow. We will offer hands-on sessions at massage studios, spas, and churches along the Colorado front range. Eight weeks of sessions are offered for individuals with cancer, and five weeks are offered for caregivers. In a self-report survey that we conduced a few years ago with 108 patients, after 12 weekly LifeSpark sessions, physical and emotional states improved significantly.
- Our hospital program is fully functioning. UCHealth Anschutz Cancer Center, Denver Health Medical Center, and Memorial Hospital have invited our volunteers back in, and we offer short 20 minute sessions in these locations while people receive chemo. In 2019, the Anschutz team conducted an informal survey of 35 patients receiving LifeSpark sessions during their chemo treatments. Patients reported an average one third drop in pain and two-thirds drop in stress and anxiety after just one session.
Cancer research shows that the mind and emotions have a profound effect on the body. Our therapies are complementary and integrative with traditional medical care and all types of treatments. We help you and your loved ones maximize your ability to recover.
