Sanjeevani Wellness Centres
 
From Dis-ease to Well-ness
   
 
Designed as a Wellness and Rehabilitation intervention, the program is delivered through Sanjeevani Wellness Centre’s set up as an adjunct facility to our Sanjeevani Counselling and Rehabilitation Centre’s in the vicinity of Regional Cancer Centres.

Sanjeevani Wellness Centre’s, manned by Sanjeevani Counselors, aim to motivate and encourage patients to complete their treatment and keep a positive outlook towards treatment as well as life. Interventions at the Centre’s like Individual and group counseling, Emotional Release therapy, Meditation, Yogasans, Pranayam practice, Art therapy, Music therapy and Music therapy are provided by senior external faculty who are amongst the best in their respective fields.

The uniqueness of the program stems from the fact that these centre’s are manned by Sanjeevani Counselors who are mostly rehabilitated cancer survivors themselves and that all interventions are made available to cancer patients free of cost.

Project Details

We are convinced that cancer is a disease that needs to be fought from within by building up immunity.

We all know that all bodies carry healthy cells as well as rogue cells. Just that, in healthy bodies the rogue cells are kept in control by the healthy cells. However, dip in body’s immunity levels gives an opportunity to the rogue cells to become super active and at times turn delinquent and maybe cancerous.

Once cancer cells develop they play havoc in the body by forming tumors in vulnerable spaces. Whilst, these need to be killed to cure cancer by external medical interventions in form of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation become a necessity; we believe that a patient’s war against cancer can be better fought by supplementing the external medical interventions with other self interventions that help build improved immunity levels. We believe that body’s immunity levels can be strengthened with right food, right breathing and positive thoughts thereby helping the healthy cells to keep these rogues in check.

It is to meet this need that Sanjeevani Life Beyond Cancer has started this unique concept very aptly named Sanjeevani Wellness Centre’s.

Sanjeevani Wellness Centre’s run as an adjunct facility to the Sanjeevani Counseling and Rehabilitation Centre’s. Patients who come in for counseling at SCRCs are referred to SWCs to experience and benefit from a well designed two month course offering sessions by trained faculty on the following:
  1. Individual and Group counseling;
  2. Emotional Freedom Techniques;
  3. Meditation;
  4. Yoga and Pranayam training;
  5. Nutritional Guidance;
  6. Reflexology;
  7. Art, Music and Dance Therapy; and also
  8. Group Therapy;
All interventions are provided here free of cost. Overall Objective of the Project:

Objective of creating these spaces is to help cancer patients
  • Deal with the side effects of modern medicine in a better way;
  • Equip them with skills to take responsibility of their own health and build up their immunity systems; and also
  • Lead a better quality of life post-treatment and hopefully reduced chance of recurrence.
The above mentioned interventions will help cancer patients
  • to get cured of cancer in a holistic manner;
  • learn to lead better lifestyles;
  • make positive changes in their mental constructs;
  • take responsibility of their health and thus avoid recurrences; and
  • play an active role in the society rather than living as depressed beings carrying the baggage of scars of cancer


Location of the project:

First such centre was commissioned last year and we are in the process of rolling out in other cities. Sanjeevani Counselors’ placed in this centre touch the lives of over 200 patients annually.
