Pink Ribbon Program – Pre & Post Operative Workouts Enhancing Recovery Offering strength, self-esteem & quality of life to breast cancer survivors. Exercise may be the last thing you feel like doing after breast cancer surgery. You’re probably exhausted, your arm may be painful & swollen, & the adjuvant treatments can make you feel even worse. All you want to do is rest. In the past, that’s exactly what doctors recommended. However, recent studies indicate a link between moderate physical exercise & improved quality of life for breast cancer survivors.
Belly Pilates is Pink Ribbon Program Certified & offers private & duet instruction in a supportive & peaceful environment. We can successfully evaluate the patient from diagnosis to treatment, recovery, prevention of lymphedema & work within proper exercise guidelines & protocols. Major areas of concern include body image, frozen shoulder, &/or range of motion, depression & anxiety. Our sessions provide intimate instruction on purpose-built Pilates equipment.

The Pink Ribbon Program will help stretch & strengthen the shoulder, chest, back, & abdominal muscles, allowing women to regain full range of motion to those areas affected by breast cancer surgery.
