Women recovering from breast cancer surgery and treatment face many challenges; pain, movement limitations, fatigue, lymph edema and all of the emotional issues that arise when dealing with a serious illness.

WHAT COMMON ISSUES MAY ARISE FROM BREAST CANCER AND POST MASTECTOMY?

During cancer rehabilitation, the concepts of breathing, pelvic and lumbar spine alignment, rib cage placement, shoulder mobility and stability, and head and neck alignment can be applied to any Pilates movement. Bringing awareness to posture can be the first step in improving daily activities. Putting the body in a position where it moves and reacts more efficiently can take away unwanted stress and strain. Developing proper movement patterns will also allow the body to heal in a way that reduces the likelihood of compensatory injuries. We offer a multi-faceted program to help women in their process of recovery.
