Designed and developed by DNA Health Group, Movement Against Cancer (MAC) is an evidence-based, clinical exercise program for people currently living with cancer and cancer survivors. MAC aims to increase the quality and quantity of life in people with cancer by guiding participants through an appropriate set of activities specifically tailored to improve treatment and health outcomes.

The program is prescribed and supervised by Accredited Exercise Physiologists (AEPs) – allied health professionals with a minimum 4-year university degree in exercise prescription and lifestyle modification programs for the prevention and management of chronic diseases and injuries.

Research has proven physical activity to be a safe and effective therapy in the management of cancer.  While there was a time not so long ago when doctors and specialists ordered cancer sufferers to ‘take it easy’ and get some bed rest, increasing evidence in recent years has left little doubt that physical activity can be extremely valuable in assisting cancer sufferers to cope with their treatment. It is now becoming standard recommendation from treating physicians that patients include exercise in their overall management plan both during and after their treatment.

What Our Clients Say

My daughter and I set Danae a tough task; prepare Beth for a healthy pregnancy despite high blood pressure, and help me regain tone and fitness after major foot surgery and other injuries. Oh, and she had to work with both of us at the same time! She did it easily – with knowledge, enthusiasm and good humour. Our sessions are fun as well as hard work and we have both achieved our goals. I cannot recommend her highly enough, although I do not want my golf competitors to know anything about her. She is my secret!
Karen, Beaumaris
The Ultra Lite program worked for me. Not only did I lose weight and reach my goal weight, I have ben educated on how to choose the balance of the food types and their portion sizes. I attribute a lot of my success to Danae’s excellent management of my program. She was thorough, friendly and constantly encouraging. I feel better than I have felt in years…
Gerard, Sandringham
“After speaking to, and on the advice of my Dr, I began attending DNA Health Group, who are clinical Exercise Physiologists. I have found the instructors very efficient and most understanding of my various health issues and the goals I want to achieve. Kate, my instructor, is very caring and professional; I am being rewarded with my fitness following her advice and exercise program.”
Mary, Sandringham
I welcome the opportunity to recommend Danae Bradley of DNA Health Group to anyone who needs help with their body. My problems stemmed from loss of balance following brain surgery for the removal of a tumour. The surgery however damaged both my hearing and balance nerves on my right side. Danae is a keen observer and was able to detect underlying causes of several of my long standing problems. I have sought help from many therapists over many years (I am now 64 years) and the results I have achieved with Danae are clearly the most effective. At a recent party I found I was able to enjoy dancing again. I feel at least 20 years younger. It is a pity Danae cannot treat grey hair!
