Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre

Wellness on Wheels

Led by Simone Noelker, Wellness Centre Co-ordinator & Steve Medwell, BRICC Director "Wellness on Wheels", this project trialled the provision of complementary therapies available in the BRICC wellness centre to the town of Stawell. 

The trial was a great success:

  • A Stawell based massage therapist has been trained and continues to offer oncology massage to the residents of Stawell.
  • Looking to expand the program to Horsham in the future.
  • 100% of patients who completed the survey found that it helped with anxiety, muscle relaxation and pain reduction.

"It's great that popular wellness programs available in Ballarat are now available to patients in Stawell", Simone Noelker
