Our Approach

Pilates Health Physiotherapy is a professional assessment, management & exercise programme based in the Pilates tradition.

Pilates Health Physiotherapy is about learning better postures, re-learning better breathing patterns, discovering or re-discovering the art of relaxation, improving body awareness and how you use your body in your every day life and about learning how to improve the quality of your movement.   Movement is so central to our lives – it affects our health in every possible way. We rely on movement for attending to all our basic needs. Movement helps us maintain a healthy cardio-vascular system. A healthy cardio-vascular system, in turn, keeps all our organs healthy, not the least of which is our brain. A healthy and active brain gives us the motivation to work, learn and engage in our surroundings and with others.

Pilates Health Physiotherapy therefore offers an holistic preventative and therapeutic approach to better movement.

BALANCE PILATES.............New Christmas term 2016

Balance Pilates is  new exercise programme being offered by Pilates Health Physiotherapy as of the Christmas 2016 half term.

Pilates Health Physiotherapy has traditionally offered exercise programmes that have a focus on functional ability with a bias to prevention of disability, dynamic postural control, balance and co-ordination.

While Pilates, as an exercise method, has its origins in matwork , as physiotherapists, we recognise how functionally  important it is to be challenged to strengthen our stability and balance in more upright positions.  This is the basis of Balance Pilates .... a programme that takes the principles of Pilates and adapts them to exercises that will be mainly done in standing and sitting.

Many of you will have already experienced some of these exercises as part of our regular classes.  Balance Pilates will work at a slightly slower pace, aiming to develop balance, co-ordination and stability with postural changes.
