What is Nordic Walking

Nordic Walking is an effective way for you to exercise whilst maintaining and/or improving your functionality and mobility at the same time. Using 2 walking sticks, Nordic walking encourages up to 80-90% of your overall muscle activation therefore making it more effective than normal walking. Nordic Walking is beneficial in cancer recovery as it helps promote an increase in functional mobility, quality of life, physical fitness but more specifically improved shoulder mobility and a positive impact on lymphedema (particularly in breast cancer survivors). Nordic Walking can easily be tailored and self-paced to each individual.
