About Pilates Therapy

What is Pilates Therapy? 

Pilates therapy is a unique fusion of Pilates exercises and therapeutic principles, focusing on harnessing the body's anatomy and timing of movement.


The primary objective is to enhance overall well-being by improving movement facilitation. Posture serves as an initial guide, but the analysis deepens through dynamic movements. The approach involves identifying the driving areas of dysfunction. Areas may lack proper mobility or exhibit compensation for a number of reasons, but we aim to find out the cause not just treat the effect.


We incorporate muscle energy release techniques, neurodynamics, and resistance to addresses balance issues in the body. Additional modalities like massage, Scar Work, and craniosacral therapy contribute to comprehensive care. 


Embracing a task-based methodology, Pilates therapy tailors interventions to the individual, avoiding one-size-fits-all programs. Each client undergoes a personalised assessment to craft a meaningful and effective path toward achieving their specific goals.
