What began as an “insider” secret amongst dancers and athletes is now enjoyed by millions. Pilates is incredibly popular and the main reason for its extraordinary appeal is that it is a mode of exercise with no barriers on age, sporting or physical ability, and is even possible during pregnancy. It is a low-impact exercise focusing on elongating, strengthening and encouraging good posture and muscle elasticity.
The most important aspect of Pilates is using specific movements to strengthen the core postural muscles which provide spinal support, to keep the body well balanced. Here at Pilates Central we run Pilates-equipment-based classes, Pre and Post-Natal sessions and post-rehab maintenance sessions.

The benefits of regular GYROTONIC® practice include; a healthier, more supple spine, increased range of motion, greater joint stability, improved agility and athletic performance, and a deep internal strength.

Chronic repetitive strain, injury, surgery, stress, poor posture or structure imbalance can cause dysfunction and imbalance in the musculoskeletal system. When left untreated, these issues can result in localised or radiating pain, limitation in movement, muscle weakness and potentially affect a person’s overall health. Physiotherapy is to help those who are affected to achieve their optimum functional level and structural balance in the body.
Physiotherapy treatment at Pilates Central focuses on personalised treatment plans. The one-on-one sessions help to assess the symptomatic area and also the body structure of a patient in order to diagnose the problems. Treatment approaches are joint mobilisation, myofascial released, deep friction massage, neural and visceral manipulation, lymphatic drainage etc to meet the variations in each individual’s need.
