New Antenatal Pilates Classes Launching in 2018 at YOU Massage Therapy, Southampton

What Is Antenatal Pilates, And Is It For Me?

Antenatal Pilates is Pilates classes specifically designed for individuals during and after pregnancy. Both Pre- and Post-Natal Pilates follow the same concepts and principles of traditional Pilates, but include modified exercises to ensure they are safe and effective for expectant and new Mums. Antenatal Pilates strengthens the entire body, focusing on the core and pelvic floor, specifically for expectant and new Mums.

If you are expecting and are having an uncomplicated pregnancy, then Pilates may be for you. If you have complications, please check with your midwife or GP first.

Pre-natal Pilates is a great way for pregnant women, having an uncomplicated pregnancy, to commence weeks 8 – 20; to stay in good shape throughout your pregnancy. Ir is not recommended to commence Pilates over half way through your pregnancy, if you commence prior to week 20, you can then continue until week 32. For ladies wishing to join a class after week 20, or for continuing with exercise from week 32 – birth, we recommend Pregnancy Yoga, which is designed to help the body prepare for birth.

What Benefits Can I Expect During Pregnancy Pilates?

Pilates will help strengthen your core, back and pelvic floor, In addition, you may achieve the following benefits:

  • Improved breathing control throughout pregnancy and labour.You Massage Therapy Antenatal Pilates exercise ball

Southampton Osteopath: Jane

janeHi, my name is Jane, I just wanted to introduce myself, I am the newest member of the team, here at You massage therapy.  I hope see some of you, as I settle in.  I bring a number of the skills to the team, I’m a registered osteopath, a sport and remedial massage therapist, a sports injury therapist and I have an extensive background in the health and fitness industry.

I just wanted to give you some information about myself and some of the treatments options that I have to offer;

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a system of assessing, diagnosing, treating and preventing a wide range of health problems.  We believe how your body moves influences how it functions, through a wide variety of   manual therapy techniques.  Korr (1978) described manual therapy as the “Application of an accurately determined and specifically directed manual force to the body, to improve mobility in areas; in joints, in connective tissue or in skeletal muscles”.

Although osteopaths are well known for treating all manner of back pain, osteopaths are highly competent healthcare professionals and can treat all areas of the body , through a variety of techniques that may or may not include joint manipulations,  joint articulations, ( aimed at improving range of motion, by repeatedly changing the restriction of barrier, reducing joint stiffness, contractures and pain), muscle energy techniques, (using gentle muscle contractions to relax and lengthen musculature around a joint to improve function), traction techniques (to gently stretch joint surfaces, muscles and connective tissue), as well as using a variety of soft tissue or massage techniques.
