If you’re scared of moving or if every time you move or exercise, it brings on lower back pain, then it’s time to do something about it.
Movement is personal. How you move is shaped by the makeup of your body, your lifestyle and your past. Those every day aches and pains we feel are caused by unconsciously moving in an awkward way that causes pain and damage to our body.
Our Pilates coaching can help you to correct those awkward movements to discover a new, more comfortable way of moving and prevent those same pains recurring.
Pain is your brain’s way of telling you there’s danger. However, pain signals can, especially with back pain, get stuck in the “on” position. What that means is that your brain tells you there is pain even when there is no danger. This pain signal can get stuck on when, for example, you are stressed (and yes, pain itself can be a stress factor) or if you’ve had pain for a long time (then your brain forgets know how to switch the pain off).
Our Pilates coaching can help you to move using different parts of the body so that you’re doing the same movements without feeling pain.
Of course, the pain might be so strong, that even the idea of moving is stressful, in which case our Remedial massage or CranioSacral therapy will help the pain signals to “quieten down” before you start your Pilates Coaching.
Your Movement MOT will give you an understanding of what’s holding you back from:
Relieving your pain & prevent it recurring
Improving your strength & stamina
You’ll share relevant health and fitness history and show us how you move. At the end of the session, we’ll discuss options on next steps. Includes:
an appointment lasting approximately 30 minutes
a movement assessment (please wear suitable clothes)
guidance on the right approach for you

“I honestly don’t know how I’d have managed these past few months without the very focused support, the absolute positivity and the overwhelming sense of empowerment that I have gained from your Pilates sessions. My heartfelt thanks.”
“I must say you have changed my view on Pilates completely. Despite having had back problems in the past, my exercise regime has always been rather full on and I have never really enjoyed Pilates. However, your approach has changed my view completely and I now really think about my body and posture. I also appreciate how much Pilates complements my other exercise and I wouldn’t be without it. So a big THANK YOU!”
"Thanks for all your help and for a fantastic session. I’ve really benefitted from your expert tuition. We were talking on Saturday about people who are gifted. I think you are one of them. You listen well and then teach me in a way that works for me. That is gifted, in my book. Thank you."
“I have really enjoyed the class and the understanding that it also provides regarding body mechanics and how it all works!! I find this really useful and much more beneficial than any Pilates classes I have done over the years in the past - so thank you!”
‘‘I was very impressed with what you picked up on and the immediate relief I got from some pain. The sessions helped me notice where I was holding on. I also felt much calmer and rested after the treatment. I felt very cared for during the session, you were extremely attentive and respectful. I noticed improvements to the body system and flow. I really didn’t believe that this type of intervention could be effective but I have now recommended it to others!’’
