  • Improve general fitness, health and well being
  • Boost body image and self esteem
  • Help to restore a sense of control
  • Relieve discomfort associated with surgery and treatment
  • Reduce the potential risks of Lymphoedema
  • Assist in the management of Lymphoedema

The program incorporates Hydrotherapy and land based exercises and provides the opportunity for women to connect with other women who share a similar experience.
