“Not only is health a normal condition, but it is our duty to not only to attain it but to maintain it.”

Joseph H. Pilates

Exercise improves the general health of patients, increases their confidence, self-esteem and sociality. Our main focus is the rehabilitation and in particular

the “opening” of the shoulder joint, strengthening the shoulder belt, improving posture and alignment of the head.

Pilates & Breast Cancer

What interests us after a surgery is the side effects and rehabilitation. There is accumulated fatigue, stiffness, limited mobility, muscle weakness and bad posture. After the operation, an internal rotation of the shoulder and side bend of the head are observed. So important is the “opening” of the shoulder joint, strengthening the rotator cuff, improving posture and head alignment.
Caution is necessary in injuries but also in pressure at the tip of the operated side. We will use Toning Balls with little or no resistance to some exercises or exercise bars. Depending on the improvement we can increase the resistance if possible. Exercise has generally been shown to increase patients’ chances of survival, and there is evidence that it reduces the likelihood of cancer recurring. In addition, exercise improves the general health of patients, increases their self-esteem, self-esteem and social status.

Pilates & Breast Cancer Educational Seminar

The Pilates & Breast Cancer seminar includes 38 exercises with low resistance Toning Balls (or no resistance) or exercise bar. Corresponding variations and modifications are given. Depending on the improvement we can increase the resistance if possible.
