What I can do for you

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of different conditions, mainly arthritis, lower back pain & knee injuries. Specific exercises can be safely done due to the low impact the water has on the body.

Theraband/Elastic and Resistance Training and Technique

Proper use of these tools for resistive exercise provides both concentric and eccentric resistance on the muscles, improving strength, range of motion and muscle balance. Effective since they target larger muscles as well as smaller stabilizing muscles.

Bosu and Pilate Ball training

The unstable characteristics of the bosu ballmake it a great training tool for targeting stabilizer muscles, especially those of the core. You can take a traditional, stable move, like the squat, and make it more challenging with the Bosu because you now have to balance on an uneven surface.

Core Training

Your core stabilizes your body, allowing you to move in any direction as well as having proper balance. It helps prevents falls and supports your body. A combination of functional training and stablizing exercises.

Mobility and Stretch Training

Stretching is an important aspect of sport and physical exercise. Knowing when and how to stretch for the best outcome could make the difference to an athlete’s performance and workout routine.

Elderly and Group Classes

Exercises to improve overall strength and balance. Fall prevention – Addressing alteration to gait, balance and mobility and muscle weakness. Improve activities of daily living.
