Wellness is one of the pillars on which Cancer Support Community’s comprehensive survivorship program is built. Research shows that cancer patients who engage in mind/body programs experience improved outcomes when compared with patients who did not. Our programs are aimed at improving mind/body wellness and reducing stress. Additionally, these approaches have been shown to improve quality of life during cancer. All class instructors are certified or trained professionals.

Recipes cards are shared with the class for each delicious entrée!

Reiki is a non-invasive, light-touch practice that originated in Japan in 1922. The recipient lies on a massage table fully clothed, while the practitioner gently places her hand on the head, torso, back, and sometimes feet to guide most people to deep relaxation. Many people experience warmth or light sensation in areas where the practitioner’s hands are placed. Reiki has a meditative quality, sometimes even being described as meditation delivered through the hands.
Gentle Stretch Yoga
Yoga is a mind and body practice that involves movement, meditation, and breathing techniques to promote mental and physical well-being. Yoga has shown to increase flexibility and strength while reducing stress. All fitness levels welcome!
