Description

Aratika Cancer Trust empowers people impacted by a cancer diagnosis through evidence-based information and resources illuminating the integrative and holistic nature of living well.

Our focus is on programmes that are complementary to conventional medicine and we welcome people impacted by cancer past or present, to attend.

Our services include:

  • A weekly walking group, run in conjunction with the Cancer Society
  • Library resources
  • Meditation series 
  • Creative art programmes
  • 5-day residential wellbeing retreats

We work closely with other cancer care providers in the area and can help to connect you with other organisations that may further support your needs, during your cancer journey.
