Relax into rehabilitation The Oncology Rehabilitation Outpatient program at St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital is a six-week, twice a week program incorporating information sessions, meditation, tai chi, exercise and hydrotherapy, which is tailored to suit individual needs and goals. As St John of God CEO Lisa Norman explained, the information sessions are interactive and discuss topics to assist in day-to-day life such as healthy food choices when people aren’t feeling their best, tips on managing stress, the benefits of exercise and providing instruction to partici-
pants on how to pace themselves to get through the day. “The meditation session will help you wind down and refocus and the tai chi session is great for balance, posture and breathing,” Mrs Norman said. “Exercise is an integral part of rehabilitation and plays an important part in reducing cancer related fatigue and improving quality of life.” Hydrotherapy is new to oncology rehabilitation, but early research shows it is an effective method of exercise. “The water is 34 degrees and while the water resistance provides a great
workout, we let you float around as part of your ‘cool down’, so it is a very relaxing session,” Mrs Norman said. “Whilst we encourage everyone to participate, we understand hydrotherapy is not for everyone, so an alternative gym session can be provided.” Those who want to get started can just ask a specialist or GP for a referral to one of St John of God’s rehabilitation physicians who will complete a medical assessment to enter the program.
