THE PILATES METHOD
Is a system of movement developed by Joseph H. Pilates. Utilizing specialized equipment he designed, the method works by toning muscles as well as balancing muscular force at the joint level. It stimulates circulation by facilitating muscular flexibility, joint range of motion and proper musculoskeletal alignment. In addition, it promotes new neuromuscular patterns, heightened body awareness, and more precise coordination. All these things combine to help prevent future re-injury and reduce – even in some cases alleviate – chronic pain altogether.
