Not surprisingly, the pink lotus flower boasts a very rich history in both medicine and spirituality across many different cultures - it's no surprise that it has become part of our corporate identity.
Herbalists use the actual lotus flower as a natural remedy for countless ailments. Buddhists believe the lotus flower represents purity of the body, speech and mind. Interestingly, the lotus grows only in mud, blooming unscathed and beautiful despite seeds rooted in dirty ponds. Metaphorically, breast cancer survivors overcome the sufferings of life to emerge victorious, healed, and whole. Because we take a comprehensive and holistic approach to cancer treatment, we feel that the pink lotus flower perfectly symbolizes our mission of healing.
At the Pink Lotus Breast Center, we believe that optimal health is achieved through a delicate balance in life, a sentiment shared by leading physicians and researchers. True healing involves mind, body and spirit. In addition to treating cancer directly, we surround our patients with a nurturing environment that includes Psychology, Nutrition, Physical Therapy, support groups, and Chinese Medicine in partnership with the Tao of Wellness. Our goal is to help women come through the cancer experience stronger and more whole than when they entered.
