What is Clinical Pilates?
Clinical Pilates is different from standard Pilates as it involves a more tailored exercise program based on a physiotherapy assessment. The specific choice of Pilates exercises can make a significant difference in your outcome and benefit.
What makes us different?
At Clinical Physio, you can choose between 1-on-1 sessions or a group class with a maximum of 3 participants.
You will first undergo a full, 1 Hour assessment with our Clinical Pilates Instructor and Senior Physiotherapist, Jessica Findlay. Your exercises will be prescribed based on the findings of the physiotherapy assessment, which are aligned with your functional goals.
