Exercise Your Lymphatics
The Exercise Your Lymphatics class has been very informative and interesting. Richard has been very informative and interesting. Richard has been generous with time and considerate of each persons’ wishes.
Richard was very helpful and answered all questions. Has a lot of patience and listened to us all. Well worth attending.

The Exercise Your Lymphatics session with Richard Roope was extremely valuable. Richard paced his information so that the group felt very comfortable to ask questions and discuss issues. Highly recommended.
Seeds For Health
A wonderful course and experience for helping us deal with self-help for our health. Given a great confidence boost and empowering at a frightening time when I feel so vulnerable. Diane is marvellous and her volunteer helpers are the soul of kindness. Have learnt such a lot about organic vegetables.
I very much enjoyed my sessions with Donna Meyer. She is a very gentle, caring and compassionate instructor who only had my best interests and physical capabilities in mind at all times. I found myself completely captivated by her and she has triggered a desire to further participate in this field, having never done any yoga beforehand. Many thanks Donna.
Brilliant, an oasis in my week – no matter how stressed I am feeling, I come out feeling grounded and in a blissful state!! Tina is very mindful and sensitive of the needs of her participants. Love her sharing the wealth of knowledge about yoga principles. Thank you and bless you Tina for your generosity of spirit and beautiful energy.
I can’t express what a wonderful positive experience the Hero’s Journey has been. Incredibly reflective, puts the journey into perspective and let me understand the experiences I’d had. I would thoroughly recommend this course as part of the healing journey. The opportunity to creatively express myself in words and pictures brought forward a beautiful, poignant story from within. Thank you so much Rebekah and the CCC.

At the beginning the massage helped me to keep going. It didn’t matter how ill I was feeling, the therapist was matter-of-fact and responsive to my needs. It was good to know that bodies like mine and a bald head didn’t bother her! The massages were great too.
— Dorothy Williams
I find the CCC and its staff very nurturing. I wouldn’t be here if not for Sarah as she urged me to see a Doctor when I showed her my lump.

I have had lymphatic drainage massage since I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. I am thankful for the professionalism, care and treatment I receive each session. Thankyou to all the volunteers who offer their time.
Judy is my favourite masseuse!
Wonderfully relaxing, gently, caring and thoughtful. I am walking much better too (arthritic feet!)
Journey to Wellness
I found the Journey to Wellness interesting and useful as I look to my future. I thought that meeting with a group of others helped me to see that there are lots of ways of living from here and that I can live my future in many different ways. It may be coincidence, but during the weeks I attended the course I found something that interests me right now and I’ll be able to do what I love and give back at the same time. Right now I feel really blessed.
— Dorothy Williams
I would thoroughly recommend the Journey to Wellness course. It was so positive, friendly, warm, caring and most of all informative.
— Sandra Adam
Everyone should do this course. It is presented by very knowledgeable and caring people and covers so many useful topics. The sessions are held in a relaxed small group, with time for questions. The presenters offer their knowledge in a very balanced manner, with information sheets provided that assist in retention and reflection. Being in a group of other cancer patients and survivors, opportunities to talk about experiences and being given balanced opinions was excellent. Highly recommended. Don’t miss this opportunity.
— Dawn Kiroff
As stated previously, speaking to others in a similar situation to my own made me feel supported and understood.
— Maria De Robertis
It was an interesting and informative course. It was also good to meet people of different cancer backgrounds, thank you for the opportunity to attend.
We learnt so much from Paul Kern on our bodies, nutrition etc., also exercises to help our minds and bodies cope from Sarah and Dagmar. I did find the first few sessions ones that as a cancer survivor only rehashed everything that we had/has to face throughout the course of the chemo and Oncology rad treatment before my operation within one and a half years of recovery and everything you have to survive.
I always feel happier and more positive after being at the Unley C.C.C. – so nurturing.
— Sandra Adam
Very balanced sessions/presenters not pushy in their approaches – just offering knowledge and very balance sessions. Maybe another half day on Exercise: What is Yoga and Tai Chi, what is Lymphatic breathing? Include a focus on exercise for those with joint and back pain. Three full Sundays in a row was a bit taxing. The first full day was a good solid start, so leave that (the topics reinforced each other very well). But break the second Sunday into 2 half Sundays. These 2 topics were packed very full of info and so it was hard to retain and be reflective of what was presented.
— Dawn Kiroff
You hardly ever hear about this type of info from your regular health professional. I came away with a much broader outlook to maintain wellness. I really appreciate the Centre running this course over 3 Sundays. As a worker I would have found it difficult to do during 6 weekdays – half days. I understand that some may have felt fatigued toward the end of the days.
It was very theoretical and I would have liked some activity. This would have made me feel more engaged. Meditation and nutrition sessions were informative.
It was good having the course on Sunday. It meant I could attend. The full day format was long days – hard to concentrate. Information was right on target for me. I learnt a lot from fellow participants and met someone with my particular cancer.
I enjoyed the opportunity to talk to other participants about their cancer journey and exchange information and experiences. I would have liked the session to include other complementary therapies within Australia and overseas.
I would have preferred more information on the nutrition side. Foods to eat and to avoid. Overall the 3 days were very good and informative.
I really enjoyed the practical breathing exercises. Would also like more content on recipes for healthy diets.
The Centre is lovely and welcoming.
