Rehab Pilates

Yesterday I taught a Rehab Pilates session to a Japanese journalist who told me that Rehab exercise and Pilates were not linked in Japanese culture. You go to a Pilates teacher for exercise, and a physician for any kind of Rehab exercises.

Now this is appropriate in acute injury cases, but when you are dealing with imbalances from an injury 20 years ago that still cause problems the physician usually shrugs her shoulders. This is where a Rehab-focused Pilates session can come in handy.

In a 60-90 minute session I can assess the imbalances and offer an exercise program to help strengthen what is weak and stretch what is tight, leading to better muscle balance and function. Email me for more information.
