Pilates, renowned for its holistic approach to fitness, offers a myriad of benefits for both body and mind. First and foremost, it strengthens the core muscles, enhancing stability and improving posture, which translates into reduced risk of injuries in daily activities and sports. Its low-impact nature makes it suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels, fostering flexibility, balance, and muscle tone without placing undue stress on joints.


Moreover, Pilates promotes mindfulness through focused breathing and precise movements, helping practitioners develop body awareness and mental concentration. This mind-body connection not only alleviates stress but also enhances overall mental well-being. Regular Pilates practice can alleviate chronic pain, particularly in the back and neck, by correcting muscular imbalances and promoting proper alignment. 


Furthermore, it can improve circulation, digestion, and even sleep quality. Ultimately, Pilates offers a comprehensive approach to fitness, fostering strength, flexibility, and mindfulness for a healthier, more balanced lifestyle.

I GRAY Cyclist, Wanstead

Janet has been providing me with massage treatments and exercise advice with good effect for some time. However, I have some persistently painful areas that have not always responded well and are possibly being exacerbated by my physical activities. Janet offered to include dry needling into my treatment and, although I was initially sceptical, I have become a convert. The fact that Janet was able to demonstrate the effectiveness of this treatment in three separate bi-lateral areas (neck, shoulders and hips) and achieve immediate muscle relaxation and pain relief is enough proof for me. I will be happy for Janet to incorporate this into my future appointments.

You can also book appointments with me at any time from The Cherry Tree Therapy Centre 2 Station Parade, Cherry Tree Rise, Buckhurst Hill, Essex, IG9 6EU, or from my home in Stondon Massey, CM15 OEE
