Call 020 8681 4951 to book.

Clinical Pilates is an approach designed by health practitioners to help reduce a persons pain and improve the range and quality of their movement. It can be undertaken on a treatment couch or the floor and at the clinic is done as part of an Osteopathic assessment by the principal Osteopath at ARC Osteopathy who is APPI trained.

 

The Pilates method was created in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates. He developed a new approach to exercise, initially called Contrology, as it emphasized the importance of muscle control. As an ultimate mind-body workout, the method brings out a natural grace and suppleness in the body.

Pilates is a whole body conditioning and core strengthening method which targets the deep postural muscles of the pelvis, back and abdomen. This leads to the building of strength from the inside out, rebalancing and reshaping the body, helping to bring it into correct postural alignment, leaving you leaner and more toned.

 

Pilates helps you achieve a perfect balance between strength and flexibility, and the relief from unwanted stress and tension. Its slow and controlled approach provides longer term results and is regularly recommended by medical specialists for those with chronic back problems.

 

Pilates offers both mental and physical training and which encourages efficient breathing.

 

Precise, controlled, flowing movements help avoid muscle and ligament damage, sometimes associated with other fitness regimes. Pilates, does in fact, plays a key role in many injury rehabilitation programs in dance, sport and general practice.

Joseph Pilates did not lay down a formal training program, with the result that, on his death, his 'disciples' continued teaching by adding their own variations to the core principles and philosophy, which is why there are so many different strands available today. This flexible approach is one of the reasons why Pilates has been so successful.

Clinical Pilates is offered as part of an Osteopathic Assessment with Alan on a Monday and Thursday.
