Today there are more than 12 million cancer survivors thanks to advances in cancer prevention and treatment. Survivors need guidance in dealing with all of the medical, social and psychological problems that may occur with this chronic disease or the treatments used to save their life. We can help to provide recovery strategies for adults diagnosed with any type or stage of cancer.
Cancer and/or cancer treatments often lead to the following problems:
Anemia Anxiety Cancer related fatigue Cognitive problems (Chemo Brain) Decreased energy levels Decreased quality of Life Depression Develop focused prevention strategies Impaired Range of Motion
Scientific research shows that exercise, good nutrition, oncology massage and lymphedema management can have a positive effect in ameliorating many of these side effects associated with cancer and its treatment.
