Treatment for cancer may cause fatigue, but taking part in a regular structured exercise program is important in many ways, including a greater sense of wellbeing. St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital offers a six-week outpatient oncology rehabilitation program with information sessions, meditation, tai chi, exercise and hydrotherapy.

The information sessions are interactive and cover topics that can assist you in your day-to-day life, such as healthy food choices, tips on managing stress, pacing yourself through the day, and the benefits of exercise.

The meditation session, guided by occupational therapist Rivka, is a weekly 30-minute session to help you wind down and refocus, which complements the tai chi session that provides whole body movement while concentrating on the correct moves. It is a body and brain workout, which for 30 minutes helps you free your mind and is a great way to reduce tension. Tai chi is also assists balance, posture and breathing.

The exercise session is 60 minutes of light to moderate exercise with exercise physiologist Sam, who will assess your physical ability and individually tailor an exercise program for you.

Hydrotherapy is new to oncology rehabilitation but early research shows it is an effective method of exercise. The water is 34C, and while the water resistance provides a great workout, it is a very relaxing session. While patients are encouraged to participate, hydrotherapy is not for everyone, so an alternative gym session may be provided instead.

Phone the hospital and speak with oncology rehabilitation co-ordinator Rebecca Nolan or Sam Buchanan for more information.
