Health Professionals

Resources for medical and natural health professionals working with cancer.

Solaris Cancer Care welcomes collaboration and open communication with healthcare professionals.

What we believe

We take a holistic, integrative approach to wellbeing during and after cancer. We provide a welcoming community, professionally facilitated support groups and counselling for anyone affected by cancer. We offer evidence informed activities such as yoga, tai chi, meditation, exercise and creative activities, as well as complementary therapies such as reiki and massage. Our courses and workshops are facilitated by qualified practitioners and their content aims to give an accurate summary of current research.

We believe that creating an empowering, client-centred evidence informed integrative approach gives people the best possible chance of living well with cancer, tolerating treatment, reducing the impact of side effects from treatment, managing the stress that accompanies diagnosis and reducing late effects in survivorship.

What we do

  • We present a range of weekly activities, support groups, counselling and informative courses that people may self- select.
  • We welcome people at any stage of the cancer experience, including carers and loved ones, to find a peaceful sanctuary, and supportive community at our beautiful venue.
  • We provide quality, professional support (emotional, physical and spiritual) for people with cancer, their families and carers.
  • We do not judge people on the basis of their treatment choices.

What we do not do

  • Recommend any one treatment
  • Promise radical cures
  • Advise people against medical treatment 
  • Prescribe one particular regime for everyone
