Classes and Specialty Services
Our Studio provides services for both Wellness/Fitness and Rehabilitation.
Our Pilates classes are 45-50 minutes long and consist of traditional style Pilates machine classes with a qualified instructor. The classes will vary from 1:1 teacher to student ratio up to 1:3, giving each student a chance to excel through correction and close teacher supervision to prevent injury and encourage good body mechanics. It is recommended that groups of two or three take a private class first to allow the teacher to identify their needs as a student prior to participation in the group class.
We offer many options for pain relief and improving functional performance throughout the various stages of treatment for breast cancer. Many patients suffer with tightness and pain in the armpit and across the chest wall after Mastectomy, Lumpectomy, or Radiation treatments which can be treated with manual therapy including stretching, soft tissue massage, and specific exercise techniques. Swelling of the affected extremity after lymph node removal is referred to as Lymphedema and affects about 42% of the breast cancer patient population. It is treated by a certified lymphedema therapist with lymphatic massage, compression options, and patient education. Ultimately therapy goals include safe reintegration into normal life habits and the tools to better manage all chronic conditions with the assistance of a lifelong therapist to provide monitoring, maintenance, and yearly treatment episodes.
The practice of Dry Needling has been around for decades and continues to improve Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal function. As these techniques improve, so do the practitioners skill set, making this treatment strategy one of the most effective in the world of rehabilitation. The APTA (American Physical Therapy Association) states Dry Needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filiform needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments. The primary goal of Dry Needling is to desensitize super-sensitive structures, to restore motion and function and induce a healing response to the tissue. For seasoned practitioners, Dry Needling is extremely beneficial for quick and tangible results on top of other movement restoring techniques.
