A different view on cancer: the role of breath work in cancer + full breath session

With her breath work, medical doctor and breath teacher Nadja Benschop effectively supports cancer patients and their partners who also need support in integrating the emotions that come with this life-changing event.

Integrative breath work supports healing on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. Working with cancer patients, allows them to experience a dramatic improvement of their illness, less side effects with chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and faster improvement of physical fitness after operations. Also, it has been scientifically proven that the prognosis of cancer is significantly improved in patients who are able to process and express their emotions well.

In this interactive class, Nadja will offer her scientific knowledge in a practical approach for you to integrate it immediately in your practice. She makes the subject fun to learn with stories from her practice, and you are invited to join a Transformational Breath session after the class.

During this masterclass, you will learn to:

• Be confident in your conversation and intake with your clients who have cancer.

• Hold a good quality and factually correct conversation about cancer and breath with professionals and lay people, about the important role of oxygen and the role of emotions in cancer in detail.

• Witness the fulfilment of really bringing a meaningful change to the lives of those who are inflicted with cancer.

• Experience the power of a Transformational Breath session.
