Pilates + Osteopathy
You are now able to book a session combining the structural adjustment of Osteopathy in combination with the alignment and precision of Pilates. We are very excited to introduce osteopath and Pilates teacher Briar Harvie to our team.
Her method seamlessly combines cranial and structural osteopathy with guided Pilates. The key principles of both centre around all parts of the body functioning together in an integrated manner, improving movement efficiency and reducing stress on the body.
To be able to move efficiently, we need good joint mobility, alignment and a well balanced musculo-skeletal system. Osteopathy uses a broad range of gentle hand-on techniques to help facilitate this change within the musculo-skeletal system. The use of guided Pilates during or immediately following can helps to secure and stabilise the change by improving neural patterning and functional movement pathways.
