Service: Clinical Pilates

Clinical Pilates is a precise and highly individualised form of traditional Pilates exercises that focuses on improving the body’s core stabilising muscles to improve strength, endurance, and flexibility of the whole body and to also improve overall health and wellbeing.

What is the difference between Clinical Pilates and Gym Pilates?

Clinical Pilates is specifically tailored to your individual needs by one of our qualified Physiotherapists who has completed formal Pilates training. This means exercises used will be the most effective and safest for your problem areas to ensure the best results.

Why do Clinical Pilates?

Clinical Pilates is a fun and proven way for people of all ages, injured or uninjured, to improve their health and fitness level.

Benefits of Clinical Pilates include:
  • Improve core muscle activation
  • Improve strength and muscle tone
  • Improve flexibility
  • Correct muscle imbalances
  • Correct postural problems
  • Improve balance and co-ordination
  • Rehabilitation for spinal and sporting injuries
  • Assist in managing arthritic conditions
  • Assist with neurological conditions
  • Pre- and post-pregnancy
  • Enhance athletic performance
  • Motivation for exercise and fitness

Getting Started

An initial physiotherapy and Pilates screening assessment is first carried out for your physiotherapist to develop your individually tailored Pilates program.

We strongly believe in quality over quantity, so our sessions are 1:1 to provide you with the full attention of your physiotherapist and the ultimate guidance and safety. Private sessions can be booked at a time convenient to you.

Because we understand that exercise can be more fun with a friend, we occasionally allow for small classes of 2-3 people if appropriate once you have a good individual understanding of the exercises.

What Pilates equipment do you use?

Our programs use various specialised equipment that include Pilates reformers, exercise balls, balance apparatus, thoracic barrel and floor/ mat work.

1:1 sessions usually run for about 30 minutes. 2:1 or 3:1 run for about 45 minutes.

How long before I see results?

Results depend on your particular injury, but as a general rule, people who do Pilates 1-2 times per week will see significant improvements by 6-10 weeks. Most people we see report a good result even as early as after 1 or 2 sessions.

Can I claim Clinical Pilates on health insurance?

Yes! Our classes are developed and lead by an expert physiotherapist with formal Pilates training, so you can claim this through your private health insurance with physiotherapy extras.
