Pilates was developed during WWI as a system of rehabilitation for injured soldiers. It focuses on functional movement, precision, and balance to correct postural deviations and faulty movement patterns that lead to injury and chronic pain. It is a wonderful adjunct to bodywork to help in addressing the underlying issues that create pain and dysfunction, and to develop new healthy movement patterns in order to prevent further injury, damage, and pain over time.
As a 200 hour classical certified Pilates instructor in pursuit of a 500 hour contemporary certification, I am able to integrate Pilates based movements with stretching, yoga postures, breath-work, self-myofascial release, facilitated stretching, neuromuscular technique, and more into a guided movement therapy session that works as a stand alone treatment or as a synergistic treatment alongside massage therapy.
I highly recommend combining both massage and movement therapies for maximum results during the treatment phase of addressing musculoskeletal pain and injury, and then carrying the habits you learn with you into the maintenance phase for lifelong vitality and increased well-being.
