Wilson Technique Workout for Breast Cancer Survivors

Short intervals of physical activity integrated into your weekly routine can play an important role in recovering from surgery and breast cancer treatments. This at-home workout DVD, led by Integrative Medicine Center Personal Trainer and Clinical Nurse Specialist Donna Wilson, is designed for breast cancer patients and survivors looking for an exercise program tailored to their specific needs, including maintaining normal range of motion in the arms and decreasing chest tightness.

The 90-minute DVD is split into two segments. In the group exercise segment, Donna is accompanied by a team of breast cancer survivors in demonstrating workout routines focused on rebuilding strength, reducing fatigue, and regaining flexibility. In the personal training segment, viewers work out “one-on-one” with Donna through five distinct workouts.
