Pink Pilates

Pink Pilates Auckland logoPink Pilates is more than an exercise regime - it is a personalised therapeutic programme that is offered to women recovering from breast cancer surgery and related treatment.

Julia Marr of J.Marr Physiotherapy Ltd was the first certified physiotherapist in South Auckland, NZ to offer the Pink Pilates programme to recovering women.

The Pink Pilates programme is suitable after any type of breast surgery or treatment and accommodates all fitness levels. It is designed to facilitate recovery from mastectomy, lumpectomy, and breast reconstructive surgery including TRAM flap, LAT flap and breast implant reconstruction. The programme addresses the physical conditions and side effects of chemotherapy, radiation and hormone therapy. It can also help reduce the risks of treatment-related side effects such as lymphoedema, shoulder problems, scar tissue formation, fatigue, and weight gain.

Pink Pilates AucklandThe programme consists of 10 sessions with a personal physiotherapist. Each session is designed to suit the needs of each participant on that day. The first session will be one hour and will include a thorough assessment by one of the Pink Pilates physiotherapists. The following nine sessions will be half an hour. The programme is flexible and the therapists are able to provide each participant with a combination of treatments, including.

  • Manual physiotherapy to prevent the formation of scar tissue and frozen shoulder
  • Pilates exercises to stretch, strengthen and improve range of motion in the upper body
  • Relaxing massage to relieve stiffness in the neck, back and shoulders
  • Breathing control techniques to help facilitate relaxation and reduce stress levels
  • And personalised home exercise programmes to facilitate overall conditioning and to increase physical stamina for faster recovery
