Many of the exercise programs that Woman’s offers can benefit cancer patients.
Whether your focus is on building strength or reducing stress and fatigue, we have a plan for you at our Center for Wellness. Before starting any exercise program, discuss with your oncologist first.
- Yoga: For women with breast cancer, research shows those who practice yoga may also have less stress and fatigue and better quality of life. Yoga reduces cortisol, the body’s hormonal response to stress and has also been shown to improve sleep and reduce fatigue.
