Personalised Clinical Pilates

Booking a personalised one to one clinical Pilates appointment could really enhance your recovery. One to one instruction ensures you are performing all the exercises correctly.

Clinical Pilates is a form of physical exercise that focuses on posture, core stability, balance, control, strength, flexibility, and breathing. The Pilates Method was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. Clinical Pilates has been modified by physiotherapists. It combines the principles of classical Pilates with current research into areas such as muscle function and dysfunction, stability and biomechanics. This approach creates a safe, clinically effective treatment and rehabilitation tool . It is particularly beneficial when treating lower back pain.
