Look to pilates after breast cancer surgery

If you missed LBBC’s special networking meeting session, Getting Fit: An Introduction to the Pink Ribbon Program, it’s not too late to join in and participate in an effective way to tackle the common side effects of breast cancer surgery. Lymphedema, painful swelling of one of two arms as a result of the removal of healthy lymph nodes after breast cancer surgery may be the most common. LBBC hosted an introduction to the Pink Ribbon Program on Wednesday but it’s not too late to register and experience the healing benefits of Pilates.

Contact Valerie Grant, certified yoga and Pilates instructor for more details on the opportunity to gain strength and advance self-esteem and quality of life. The representatives of the Pink Ribbon Program understand that exercise is possibly the last thing on your mind after you’ve undergone breast cancer surgery. However, recent studies suggest that moderate physical exercise can in fact improve healing and quality of life for breast cancer survivors who are at all levels of recovery!

Valerie and other professionals associated with the Pink Ribbon Program are dedicated to promoting a healthy and fruitful lifestyle and positive body image to all breast cancer survivors. The program, which consists of 8-weeks of specialized Pilates sessions, will help stretch and strengthen the shoulder, chest, back, and abdominal muscles.

Be sure to talk to your health care provider before making any exercise decisions.
