Therapeutic Pilates at To The Core Pilates Studio
“If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old; if it is completely flexible at 60, you are young.” -Joseph Pilates
What do you imagine your future life to be like? Do you imagine playing with grandkids on the floor? Do you dream of moving well and without pain? Would you love to have more energy, less stiffness and better mobility to live a full life of independence? Maybe you’d love to enjoy a full day of activity with your teenage children and not wake up stiff and sore the next day? Perhaps you simply want to feel healthier and have better posture than you do today? Possibly your chiropractor or physiotherapist recommended Pilates to improve your quality of life?
Moving well involves so much more than just getting exercise. So many of us have suffered with injuries or health issues that impact how we function and move. The brain is a magnificent structure that protects us when we have pain by creating subconscious compensations that we rarely realize are there. Most people have no idea that they have faulty movement patterns that are contributing to their pain and stiffness. Therapeutic Pilates recognizes these compensations and reteaches your body how to move well and in balance.
Pilates is a superior tool for encouraging the body to use its innate ability to heal itself through movement. This is why it is used in so many rehabilitation hospitals and physical therapy clinics across the country. Its emphasis on spinal and joint stabilization, optimal biomechanics and recruitment of specific muscles leads to ease of movement and a reduction in pain.
If you’re looking to be proactive with your health and quality of life Pilates is the perfect fit. Let us help you to see your body change, feel your body heal and watch your body perform!
