A place which will accept you for who you are. A place where your needs are recognised. A place which understands your pain. A place where we see you as YOU.
Whether you are here for pain relief or athletic conditioning, this is the place where we will meet you where you are. We go deep into the work of Joseph Pilates so that you become strong and independent. We do so by teaching Pilates as close as possible to the original form – without the frills and fancy.
WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapy (or Physical Therapy) is recognised by Singapore Ministry of Health (MOH) and worldwide as an allied health profession that provides rehabilitation services for physical conditions such as sports injuries, neck & back pain, and conditions that affect the neurological, cardiopulmonary and vestibular system.
People with musculoskeletal / orthopaedic conditions (e.g. sports injuries and spinal conditions) undergo physiotherapy to reduce pain, reduce numbness, improve strength, improve range of motion, improve balance and agility, prevent re-injury and improve athletic performance.
People with neurological, cardiopulmonary or vestibular conditions undergo physiotherapy to improve their strength, mobility, and overall cardio-respiratory & physical function. These conditions include, but not limited to, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, brain injury / tumour, motor neuron disease, multiple sclerosis, dementia, heart attack, lung surgery, respiratory infection, cancer, BPPV and dizziness).
Our physiotherapists are fully registered with the Allied Health Professions Council (AHPC, Ministry of Health Singapore) and trained internationally by universities / institutions in USA, Australia, Ireland and the UK.
WHAT IS PILATES?
Joseph Hubertus Pilates was interned in England during World War 1 due to his German citizenship. He developed a system of exercises using hospital beds and equipment to rehabilitate injured soldiers. Soon after, he systematised his method and that set the foundation of his method called Contrology. He brought that to New York City and opened his first studio in 1926 called The New York Pilates Studio®.
The Pilates system consists of more than 500 exercises and using over 20 pieces of unique apparatus that can potentially develop your body uniformly. In a modern day studio, the main apparatus are Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Wunda Chair, Baby Arm Chair, Electric Chair, Ladder Barrel, Baby Barrel and Spine Corrector. This list excludes smaller apparatus.
Our vision is to have everyone perform the Mat exercises as “Mat Is The Work”. However, due to modern day ailments, mat work can be challenging to execute and the system is here to help you achieve the goal. We focus on fewer, more precise movements, requiring proper control and form over many repetitions.
Pilates is a “thinking” sport and a method that requires mind and body commitment. Your mind will be engaged as your movement will require integration, imagination, and intuition. As a result, you will experience a new awareness of body function and control.
