Get Active Prehab & Rehab Exercise

with Marion Foreman
(Nurse referral only)
via Zoom and at One Leisure Huntingdon

We have classes for prehabilitation to help you to prepare for treatment from the point of diagnosis. We do this through promoting healthy behaviours such as exercise. The aim of our prehabilitation programme is to empower you to maximise physical and emotional resilience to treatment and improve long-term health.

Prehabilitation is part of a continuum to rehabilitation. After treatment it is important to get fit, healthy and feel good. Through our classes our aim is to help you to return from being a patient to being a person. Ensuring you stay well and resilient in your survivorship journey.

Tai Chi & Chi Kung

with Dmitry Sokolik

In the classes you are invited to a deeper relaxation, than you are used to. In this state, the body has a chance to recognise that there is no immediate danger, stopping saving energy for the survival and switching off the sympathetic nervous system. This is when the parasympathetic nervous system naturally has a chance. This is when the body can start using the energy for regeneration and healing. The same energy it previously kept for survival. This also facilitates natural immune system strengthening, which is so precious now.

When:
Mondays from 5.45pm – 6.45pm for 6 weeks of beginners seated Tai Chi for health.
