Our Clinical Pilates programs are different from studio or group reformer Pilates because our instructors are allied health professionals (Osteopaths and Exercise Physiologists) who are trained in Clinical Pilates. Our programs are highly specific to your requirements and therefore offer optimal results and reduced risk of injury.
We hold our Clinical Pilates programs in our small studio. We use a range of equipment including a reformer, trapformer, wunder chair, mat and props.
Before you begin any programs, we will assess your pain and/or injury; asses your movement patterns; determine your requirements; and create a program using specific, individualised and targeted exercises to suit you. You will start with a 1:1 session and then you can choose to move to our semiprivate 1:3 sessions.
Most importantly, Clinical Pilates may be used to manage your:
- back pain including disc injuries;
- neck and shoulder pain;
- chronic pain including recurring injuries;
- postural complaints;
- balance and coordination issues including falls prevention;
- hip, knee and ankle pain;
- shoulder and elbow pain
- and more.
Clinical Pilates programs
We start by inviting you to attend two 50 min 1:1 assessments, because we want to understand your needs first. At the first assessment we obtain your detailed case history. We will ask you to perform a series of tests and functional movements, which will allow us to tailor a clinical Pilates program specific to your needs and goals. Before the second session, we will prepare a program specific to you. In this second session we will demonstrate and guide you through your tailored program and show you how to use the equipment.
1:1 clinical Pilates sessions
After you have completed your assessments, you may choose to continue with solo (1:1) sessions. These are for 30 or 50 minutes and are conducted by one of our qualified allied health practitioners. 1:1 sessions work around you and you can book at any time your instructor is available.
1:3 clinical Pilates sessions
Small group clinical Pilates sessions run for 50 minutes and are conducted by our qualified allied health professionals. During the 1:3 sessions you will perform your specific program. Because we want you to receive adequate supervision and guidance we limit the size of the session to three people.
We have over 20 semi-private sessions running from Monday to Saturday. Please click here for the timetable. If none of these times work for you, please let us know and will try to accommodate requests.
