NeJaime fysio.pilates opened in April 2017 with the vision of introducing pilates based fysiotherapy, which is Clinical Pilates, as a form of therapeutic exercises.
What sets us apart is that we offer both Clinical Pilates and Classical Pilates and more.
Classical Pilates is a total body system of exercises using a variety of equipment and/or mat designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, posture and mental awareness through the training of your core. It emphasizes the use of the abdominal, low back, hips and legs. The theory of pilates is a body with balanced strength and flexibility prevents injury.
Clinical Pilates is Classical Pilates used in conjunction with fysiotherapy treatments which is applied with the clinical experience of a BIG registered fysiotherapist. This is also known as pilates-based fysiotherapy
Our treatment approach is based upon extensive clinical experience gained over many years, and our commitment to reviewing the latest research and ongoing training ensures that we offer each client an effective, quality experience that delivers lasting results. We believe that fitness leads to happiness: happy body means a happy mind !
The Benefits of Physiotherapy & Pilates Combined
While physiotherapy has roots going back to Ancient Greece, Pilates is relatively new form of therapy that began in the 1920s. The two have common aims and similar methods, however. Physiotherapy promotes and maintains maximum movement and functional ability through exercise, manipulation and education. Pilates builds stamina, flexibility and core strength through a series of low-impact exercises. Combining them makes perfect sense.
Physiotherapists are perfectly positioned to deliver both physiotherapy and Pilates. Their experience and knowledge of anatomy and physiology mean they know how the body moves. They can therefore decide on the best form of treatment for particular conditions.
How Pilates combined with physiotherapy can help
One of the main aims of Pilates is to improve your core strength. You perform a series of exercises in a flowing and controlled manner to develop strength and flexibility. Each exercise targets specific muscle groups. They are suitable for all ages and capabilities because they can be performed at different levels of difficulty. As the body adapts, the intensity of the exercises increases.
Pilates exercises challenge the muscles but are gentle with the joints. They require body awareness, patience, regular practice, concentration and complete control to be fully effective and are therefore good for the mind as well as the body. They leave participants alert, energized and feeling better physically after each session.
With consistent practice, you will gain increased energy and flexibility, greater strength, better posture and a more balanced body that is less prone to injury, with each muscle doing its job in the correct way.
