We are changing the way therapists are educated in the treatment of clients with cancer. In the past it has been taught that this is a contra indication, we aim to change that and be inclusive.
We are pleased to announce after much planning, research, preparation and consultation with our medical associates our new Oncology courses. We have two workshops specifically designed for working therapists who would still like to continue treating your clients diagnosed with cancer and other life threatening illnesses
Each workshop is designed to educate the therapist with the knowledge needed to work safely with clients during and after their cancer treatment.
