Restoring The Spirit Cancer DVD



“Patients diagnosed with cancer find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of medical tests, procedures, examinations, treatments and appointments. Many say ‘Cancer becomes my life!’. People can feel victimized by the disease and the treatments. Jackie has produced resources for people with a diagnosis of cancer. In this packet of information, Jackie, a breast cancer survivor herself, helps people regain a sense of powerful self. She knows through her own experience that a person can take charge of dealing with their thoughts, feelings and beliefs. While Jackie affirms each person’s uniqueness, she shares healthy ways of coping with the experience of cancer.”

This program (RTS) is a resource that will allow patients to better cope with the many physical and mental issues that arise when dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

Physical & Mental Benefits:

  • Enhanced ROM, flexibility, strength, balance, sleep patterns and overall sense of well-being.
  • Gain a stronger and more accurate awareness of their body which allows them to communicate their needs effectively with their health care provider.
  • Calms the nervous system and alleviates the stress and anxiety which lower immune functioning and hinder healing.
  • The relaxation techniques allow the patient to acknowledge and accept the realities of the situation and cope with the fear and uncertainly that accompanies a cancer diagnosis.


Studies show that Yoga promotes better quality of life for patients during treatment and into Survivorship.
