As a Registered Kinesiologist specializing in chronic diseases and cancer rehabilitation, my job is to create therapeutic exercise programs which are adaptable to each participants limitations and strengths. My goal is to build confidence in movement and help participants optimize their quality of life at any point of their cancer journey. Working as an exercise leader for Wellspring Cancer Centres in Oakville and Brampton allows me to offer our program participants a thorough assessment and an opportunity to follow an individualized exercise program in a group setting, under a close supervision of a cancer rehabilitation specialist. Should you prefer to get the same benefits of a specialized cancer rehabilitation program in the comfort of your own home I will be happy to prescribe and supervise such program at a frequency that suits your needs. No expensive fitness equipment necessary. I can teach you safe exercises that use your own body weight, steps, chairs and other objects around the house or simple equipment such as elastic bands, balls and dumbbells.
Exercise and rehabilitation play an important role in helping cancer patients cope with treatment and its side-effects, and recover health. Moreover, for some types of cancer, exercise has shown to reduce the risk of recurrence.
Please contact me if you decide that my expertise in this area can be of help.
