karkinos mastou pilates15We are applying a three stages program for the post-surgery stage of breast cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.

First stage: the client can begin 3 to 5 days after the surgery. Our aim is the mobilization of the arm and shoulder, the breathing exercises and the body awareness. Through these simple and basic exercises we are helping the body to regain its symmetry and to gradually gain its range of movement.


Second stage
: the client can begin 2 to 4 weeks after the surgery. In this stage we focus on stretching exercises and we add a little resistance by deepening this way in the alignment and the awareness of the body.

Third stage: In this stage we are mostly applying exercises of empowerment and we increase the range of every movement.

- The participation of the clients is always according to the treating physician`s instructions.
