Mindfulness is an awareness of the moment which gives you a sense of control and can help you manage symptoms such as pain, fatigue and sleep disturbance.
We hold a six-week course on mindfulness and host fortnightly refresher meetings for all those who have completed the course.
The next course dates are to be confirmed.
Massage available on the Kāpiti Coast
We offer a massage service for people with a cancer diagnosis. A trained massage therapist provides this service.
You are entitled to three massage sessions that are designed just for you. The cost for a massage session is $20 per hour.
Please download the following medical approval form and get your doctor or oncologist to fill it out before your session.
Our services are available to anyone diagnosed with cancer, family/whānau. Please use this form if you would like to use our services or refer someone else to our services.
If you or a member of your whānau have received a cancer diagnosis, you can just ring us on 0800 226 237. You don't need to be referred by a health professional.
