Pilates

Make the right choice for you.

The Pilates method is a system of movement and therapeutic exercise developed over a span of 60 years by German born athlete and physical therapy pioneer: Joseph H. Pilates. Utilizing the specialized equipment he designed, the method works by toning muscles as well as balancing muscular flexibility, joint range of motion and proper musculoskeletal alignment. In addition, Pilates exercise promotes new neuromuscular patterns, heightened body awareness, and more precise coordination. All these things combine to help prevent future re-injury and reduce – in some cases, even alleviate – chronic pain altogether.

Benefits of the Pilates Method

  • Improves posture, flexibility & balance
  • Increases strength and bone density
  • Firms and flatten stomach muscles
  • Helps relieve back pain by increasing trunk stability
  • Reduces fatigue and stress levels
  • Improves breathing control & understanding of the importance of correct breathing in exercise
  • Strengthens pelvic floor muscles
    (excellent for Pre & Post Natal)
  • Develops longer, stronger and leaner muscles

PILATES

Promoting Faster healing

(Studio Equipment Series: Reformers, Trapeze table, Chair, Mat and other props-in small groups or one on one.)

Pilates is a non-passive therapy which utilizes specialized equipment that offers resistance for muscle strengthening while balancing muscular force at the joint. It is highly effective anytime during the recovery/healing process and can reduce rehabilitation time significantly. Pilates addresses specific site injury whilst rehabilitating the entire body to support the healing process. Breathing work is integral during the sessions, as oxygenation & circulation combine to accelerate the healing process in a variety of ways:

  • Pilates decompresses the neck & back while addressing the deterioration of joint range and muscular flexibility that most clients experience from trauma.
  • Pilates stimulates circulation while facilitating muscular flexibility, joint range of motion and proper musculoskeletal alignment.
  • Promotes new neuromuscular patterns, heightened body awareness and more precise coordination and endurance – assisting in reducing pain levels.
  • Pilates exercises assist in the reconnection of the brain and body, promoting faster healing.

Pre and Post-surgery

Pilates sessions enable advance preparation prior to surgery and are powerfully effective in reducing rehabilitation time after surgery. Pilates increases the body-mind connection, thus allowing the body to be in a healthier state prior to surgery and assists injured clients in allowing to release the trauma held in their body after an accident.
As a long term solution, Pilates is often the most effective tool for injury rehabilitation because it addresses and strengthens the body as a cohesive unit. As clients become stronger, they also become aware of their bracing patterns and imbalances. This leads the client to understand how to deal with incorrect movement and bracing in their everyday lives.

Many clients state that Pilates helps to consistently diminish pain and allows them to return to a pre-injury status quickly. In effect, Pilates helps to prevent re-injury and also becomes a fitness routine that maintains a healthy body.
