A build-up of scar tissue, protective posturing and the effects of ongoing treatment can mean that day-to-day movements and activities such as shampooing your hair, getting dressed or going about daily activities can be more difficult.
Our classes aid in building up strength and mobility, gradually and safely and are suitable from six weeks post-op.
Book a consultation to assess your suitability. A one-on-one session follows this.
Our qualified instructors will take you through the exercises designed to make everyday activities as easy as they used to be.
We’ll show you how to progressively and gently stretch and strengthen your shoulders, chest and back to regain full range of movement. This reduces the risk of Lymphoedema – a common and debilitating condition associated with removals of lymph nodes.
Then, it’s over to you; we’ll provide some gentle at-home exercises for you to help posture, pain, stress and enhance every levels
