We offer challenging 1 to 1 rehabilitation sessions on the pilates reformer. The reformer is a machine that uses springs and pulleys to create resistance. It is particularly good at identifying strength and balance deficits and allows easy comparison between your right and left side. This is very beneficial if you have a history of long standing pain and have developed lots of compensatory or bad movement habits.
Reformer Pilates works on core stabilisation, muscle endurance and strength, joint stability, balance, coordination and more. The reformer is a great piece of equipment, as it allows people with limited joint range of movement or injuries to do modified exercises and gradually increase load through the musculo-skeletal system. Tennis players, horse-riders, golfers and many others, find the pilates sessions a particularly good way to correct asymmetries, whilst keeping the correct alignment and form. Your overall aim is to become pain free, symmetrical in your movement patterns and strength and enhance performance and function.
