It's nice to hear that even during a recession, a lot of companies and organizations haven't stopped giving back.


The Colorado Springs Swim School announced that it's giving away free one-month pool memberships to breast cancer fighters and survivors. It was also interesting to hear that the school has a class specifically designed for people suffering with the cancer.

Read on:

Water Exercises for Lymphedema

Water exercises are beneficial
and relaxing. © Lymph Notes.

Aquatic therapy consists of activities and exercises that are performed while immersed in water. These activities, including swimming and movements in the water, are particularly beneficial for those with lymphedema because:

The support of the water makes possible motions that could not be achieved in other settings.
The ease of movement through the water relaxes the muscles, decreases pain, and increases the sense of well-being.
The buoyancy and support of the water allows exercise without heavy jarring or impact on the joints.
The movement of the water against the body assists the movement of the lymph and blood as gentle movements in the water stimulate muscle and skin movement without stressing other body parts.
The hydrostatic pressure of the water provides resistance that strengthens muscles and improves cardiac and respiratory conditioning.
