What is Clinical Pilates?
Pilates originally founded by Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s initially for rehabilitation for returning war veterans. Pilates is a form of exercises prescription which focuses on strengthening and balancing the core of the body, working on flexibility, strength and stamina. Clinical Pilates is a tailor made adaptation of Pilates, as manual therapists we know that every person’s body we see is different and therefore treatment of these bodies should be different. Clinical Pilates is no different, it is a tailor made exercise and rehabilitation program for your individual needs or specific ailment or injury.
Our Clinical Pilates sessions are run by qualified manual therapists (Osteopaths/Myotherapists) who are also further trained in Clinical Pilates. Currently only one on one sessions are available. Please contact our receptionists to make an appointment.
