DEARBORN – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the founder of CURE Physical Therapy, Dr. Antima Gupta, will be conducting a Free Yoga Event for Breast Cancer Awareness called Care by CURE on October 26 at 1 p.m., at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center in Dearborn.
After working at Beaumont Hospital in Dearborn for more than 20 years, Gupta opened Cure Physical Therapy in April to promote women’s health and wellness.
Gupta is a certified Lymphedema therapist with more than 10 years of experience. Lymphedema is a type of cancer in which swelling in one or more extremities results from impaired flow of the lymphatic system.
Before opening the clinic in April, Gupta did some work in home care while she was still working at Beaumont. She later obtained yoga certification through Lifetime Fitness for a holistic service to her patients.
Gupta is also registered with the yoga alliance, a nonprofit association representing the yoga community.
“In this community, women put so much effort in making sure that their families are doing okay and often neglect their own health,” Gupta said. “It is important to make sure that your health is intact, and that is what Cure offers.
“Being a woman, I understand the women patients,” she added. “And we have Arabic speaking staff who can assist Arabic speaking patients at the office as well.”
