Cancers We Treat
Treatment for cancer is difficult; let us assist you in your recovery
Improve and enhance your quality of life during cancer treatment and recovery through a prescriptive exercise rehabilitation program. Our comprehensive 10-week program combines aerobic exercise, muscle strengthening, relaxation techniques and range-of-motion exercises. We also incorporate mind and body healing through guided imagery, meditation and use of affirmations.
Licensed staff with extensive experience and training in oncology rehabilitation, supervise the class. Each participant will receive an initial assessment, individualized plan and exercise prescription in addition to the 10-week group classes. Participants will be given option to access open gym, at their cost. A physician referral is required to participate in the program. The program welcomes participants at any time - from their initial cancer diagnosis through survivorship.
