The rejuvenation program for cancer patients

woman_cancer_exercise When you are diagnosed with cancer, you feel loss of power and control over your life. Doctors make many decisions for you and treatments change your body and take away clarity of mind and energy. You hope to become “normal” again, to get your old life back and be physically and emotionally fit. But when the treatment is finished, you go home, alone, with many questions and no prescription how to recover and regain your vital energies. What you need is knowledge and tools to make meaningful and lasting changes, that will improve your health, bring back well-being and the quality of life.  An empowering wellness plan that gives you new hope.  The rejuvenation program for cancer patients is designed to do just that.

On the first day, each person is assessed and also receives a personalized program specific to the case history and physical abilities.
