Thermographic Breast-Cancer Screening at Groton Wellness
On March 17 and March 27, Groton Wellness Center will offer thermography for breast-cancer screening. Thermography is a technique that physicians have been using since 1956 to screen for breast cancer, says Amy Ashman, marketing coordinator at Groton Wellness Center. In 1982 the FDA approved breast thermography as an adjunctive diagnostic screening procedure. “With 97-percent accuracy, thermography identifies cancer up to eight to 10 years earlier than a mammogram,” says Ashman. “It’s a safe, non-invasive and pain-free way to image the body and screen for cancer without emitting radiation.”
Groton Wellness Center offers state-of-the-art holistic dental care, integrative medicine and wellness therapies. Its spa services include acupuncture, massage, colon hydrotherapy and lymphatic drainage. Yoga and other classes also are offered at Groton Wellness, and visitors can enjoy healthful entrees, soups and beverages in the bistro.
Groton Wellness Center is located at Mill Run Plaza, 495 Main St., Groton. For more information, call 978-449-9919 or visit GrotonWellness.com.
