Pilates can help if you are suffering from:
Back or Joint pain
Fibromyalgia or Arthritis
Tight Neck and Shoulders
Feeling Low in Energy
Everyone, regardless of ability, fitness level, or physical challenges, can improve their total health and well-being with the Pilates Method of body/mind conditioning. The exercises are selected and tailored for each individual's lifestyle and physical profile when they begin, and will evolve as the body strengthens. In fact, the Pilates Method itself has evolved into the highly responsive system it is today through Joseph Pilates' experiences working with a tremendously broad range of clients with diverse needs.
I was early in his career when Pilates was interned as a German citizen in a German WWI camp. Realizing the value of his exercises in developing overall strength and well being, he diligently trained his fellow internees using his method of exercise to strengthen and to prevent them from acquiring Influenza.
At the end of the war, Pilates traveled to the Isle of Man to help rehabilitate people with amputated limbs. His reputation as a physical trainer grew as a result of these experiences and he found new, ever expanding applications to the vast repertoire of movements he was constantly creating.
Today, Pilates is used as a powerful complement to other treatments in the rehabilitation of a range of conditions, including lower back pain, scoliosis and joint injuries. The exercise system also produces positive results in the treatment of arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus and neuromuscular conditions.
