Arch Pilates & Physical Therapy
The Mission of Arch Pilates & Physical Therapy is to enhance and nourish the body with powerful and intelligent movement. The body is an integrative system of the mind, body, and spirit and the sum of all parts must work in harmony for optimum health and longevity. Movement becomes intelligent as you combine physical strength, mental focus, and body awareness.
The basis of the Pilates Method is core strengthening, utilizing nine principles that connect the mind, body, and spirit. The principles are: Breathing, Concentration, Control, Centering, Precision, Balanced Muscle Movement, Rhythm and Flow, Whole Body Movement, and Relaxation. Pilates exercises will strengthen your abdominals and back, improve balance, increase coordination, and decrease stress mentally and physically. Strength and stability along with body awareness and mental focus enables the body to move with efficient neuromuscular control. This optimal neuromuscular control carries over to all movements in life.
As a physical therapist and Pilates instructor I have melded the best of both worlds to provide comprehensive therapeutic exercise programs beneficial to all ages, fitness levels, and physical limitations. The following are just some of the benefits.
