The Shocking Pink Sanctuary offers subsidised support services for those diagnosed with breast cancer covering aspects of mind, body and spirit. We offer a range of services including counselling, massage, acupuncture, beauty and relaxation therapies. To support you further we also have ongoing programmes of yoga and meditation as well as talks from experts on topics such as diet, lymphodema management and exercise. At this stage Shocking Pink Sanctuary Services are concentrated in Christchurch but as we build our resources and networks, we plan to expand to other areas of the country.
