Clinical Pilates is form of physical exercise that focuses on your posture and core stability while working on balance, strength, flexibility and importantly, your breathing.
Who benefits from Pilates?
Clinical Pilates can work with physiotherapy to treat a variety of injuries, as well as promote your overall health and wellbeing.
Our aim is to refine and restore your body to its most neutral and tension-free posture through mindful movement.
By correcting the imbalances that our bodies endure from everyday activities, your body will begin to move with a sense of fluidity, improved dynamic strength and a refined quality of movement.
We have a state of the art STOTT® Pilates Studio with the following facilities to support your recovery journey or health goals.
Rehab V2 Max reformer
A reformer that is specifically designed with the client’s comfort in mind. The adjustable height allows ease of movement on and off the equipment making it idea for post-operative and older clients.
Designed for clients in acute pain or with restricted range of movement, the Cadillac/ Trapeze table is one of our most adaptable pieces of equipment to ensure the client works within their limits, from our most acute rehabilitation clients to elite athletes.
Designed for serious core conditioning along with improved flexibility and mobility for intermediate and advanced clients.
Essential studio equipment designed for lengthening and strengthening the torso, shoulders, back and legs while restoring the neutral curvature of the spine.
