Regular body work is needed by anyone interested in keeping in good health and maintaining top condition. But if you have any medical problems, falls or injuries, have had surgery or been ill, or have had a break from regular exercise; an expert assessment is also essential to safely proceed with any body conditioning and exercise program. It is important to have individual hands-on instruction to ensure the correct performance of beneficial exercises, and prevent incorrect performance of exercises which could cause harm.
For example, a person with a back problem hearing that Pilates exercises are good for the back, goes to take a Pilates class and gets seriously injured. Why?
