With over 25 years experience in corrective and restorative exercise, medical and neuromuscular therapy, massage therapies and lymphatic drainage, I’ve helped hundreds of people regain a useful level of fitness, more mobility, better balance and significant pain reduction by using a combination of proven techniques.
Some people come for help with weight loss and overall fitness to look and feel better, get stronger. Many come for drug-free pain relief or to regain lost range of motion. Many conditions benefit greatly from the proper techniques that relieve pain and swelling, improve balance, and overall ability to move with confidence again.
Why Pilates? Pilates allows slow and easy movement without stress on the joints or taxing the body. It strengthens and lengthens muscles are needed to improve the body’s overall condition from the assaults of injuries or illnesses.
Yoga positions and stretches are valuable to relieve back or neck pain and improve muscle tone. The new “aerial anti-gravity” or “assisted” yoga allows users to stand up, aided by body slings hung from the ceiling, and use yoga positions and stretches when getting on the floor is not possible.
Massage is an integral part of pain relief, as well as allowing the body to de-stress itself naturally. Doctors prescribe massage techniques for many conditions.
Lymphatic drainage is a specialized technique to move fluids from the lymph system so that it can drain rather than causing discomfort, swelling, and loss of motion.
For high level athletes, amateur or professional, “sports massage” techniques, range of motion/flexibility protocol and strength-training principles are used to achieve a specific goal with proper timing, technique and intent.
