Restore and maintain your body's optimal function, alignment, balance,
and vitality through customized massage therapy and Pilates sessions.
The human body is a brilliant design. When all systems are functioning in harmony, our bodies are capable of amazing feats of strength, endurance, protection, and healing. If the body experiences an imbalance within one of its systems, the harmony is lost and we may feel the effects through fatigue, pain, or illness.
Joseph Pilates created a form of exercise he called Contrology. Contrology is now called the Pilates method. In his book, Return to Life Through Contrology, Mr. Pilates states, "Contrology develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit."
The Pilates method works to target muscle groups that are typically weaker due to overuse of the muscles that work in direct opposition. Pilates aims to strengthen core muscles that support the head and spine, improving overall posture.
How Can Massage Help?
Massage can increase flexibility and mobility of muscles and joints. It can also improve muscle tone and relaxation and relieve muscle cramps, spasms and pain. Regular massage can help to retrain overworked and overstretched muscles to return to a healthy resting length.
On an emotional and psychological level, massage can help improve the connection between the mind and body and reduce stress. Massage can also improve sleep patterns and reduce anxiety.
Together Pilates and massage can restore and revitalize your mind and body. If you would like more information or to schedule an introductory session, contact Balance&Vitality today!
