Breathing and Pilates Class – Cancer Treatment

I have been practicing Pilates and Breathing exercises for a while in Singapore, but I was a little surprised initially to see that the clinic also incorporated these lifestyle elements into my mum’s treatment plans. The health benefits of exercise is irrefutable for all of us really. “We confirm that there is irrefutable evidence of the effectiveness of regular physical activity in the primary and secondary prevention of several chronic diseases (e.g., cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, obesity, depression and osteoporosis) and premature death…There appears to be a linear relation between physical activity and health status, such that a further increase in physical activity and fitness will lead to additional improvements in health status.” – -CMAJ, 2006 issue Exercise also helps to get more oxygen into my mum’s system so I definitely encourage all cancer patients to do some light exercises! My mum will probably enroll in Pilates and Taiji class when home to stay fit and healthy.
