Pilates for Functional Fitness, Posture, Gait, Golf, Hiking

Invest in a Pilates program that yields Focus on Health, Wellness and Fitness for your body, mind and spirit - one with a host of benefits. Among them

  • Physical grace of movement, leading to actual re-training of neural pathways, along with mental and physical body control.
  • Posture, stability, coordination, and agility improvement.
  • Flattened and strengthened abdominal and back muscles, which stabilize spine, protect lower back, and tighten and strengthen buttocks.
  • Strengthening of bones, improved circulation, and development of lean muscles.
  • Relief of tension, along with increased mental and physical stamina, encouraging overall health.
  • Prevention of body pains and limitations associated with aging.
  • Enhancement of sport and athletic performance
  • Complementary to pre and post rehabilitation programs.


NeuroKinetic Therapy

NeuroKinetic Therapy™ corrective movement system is a sophisticated bodywork modality that can be used as both an assessment and rehabilitative technique for low back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, knee, shoulder and other injuries.

David Weinstock, author of Neurokinetic Therapy, an Innovative Approach to Manual Muscle Testing, co-developed this technique in the mid-1980s, and has used it to treat a variety of disorders that are featured on this website. The NeuroKinetic Therapy™ corrective movement system protocol employing a system of precise muscle tests has the ability to change the programming of the Motor Control Center (MCC) in the cerebellum. The MCC coordinates all movement patterns in the body. It learns through failure.

A good example is a baby learning to stand. Through many attempts and failures the baby finally achieves success. But how? The MCC chooses the most successful attempts until standing happens without “thinking” about it. Conversely, after an injury, the MCC adapts to a compensation pattern and holds that in its memory forever unless it is convinced to change. A good example is a whiplash accident in which the posterior neck muscles brace for the anterior neck muscles. This pattern can endure forever unless there is some intervention.

NeuroKinetic Therapy™ corrective movement system we test the weak or dysfunctional muscle(s) and open the Motor Control Center (MCC) to new learning. After the balance is restored, the MCC is “reprogrammed” and recognizes the dysfunctional muscles. To complete the reprogramming, specific Pilates exercises are assigned to “burn in” the new functional pattern.  NKT is most frequently used within a Pilates session, but may be purchased as a stand alone session.

What About Golf Fitness?

Become the golfer you always knew you could be!  Working on the mechanics of the swing is only one piece of the puzzle. Using Titleist Performance Institute’s golf fitness program, you can bring your game to a new level through functional and focused golf fitness workouts designed to meet your individual needs. Titleist has collected and analyzed golf swing data on 53,000 amateurs and professional golfers over the past 11 years.  We determine your specific fitness challenges and limitations through Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) designed physical assessment then work from there to create a program to improve and gain function and fitness. These sessions will:

  • Increase your mobility, stability, flexibility and strength
  • Develop more consistency in your swing
  • Optimize your power and speed through the ball
  • Improve your posture, coordination and balance
  • Help you play better, play longer, play more pain free

With the help of your golf professional, we will work hand in hand to help you reach all your fitness and golf goals. Whether it is to break 100, make par, get more yardage off the tee, reduce your back pain or have the endurance and consistency through the round, this program will help to make it possible.


Factors like strength, flexibility, balance, endurance, nutrition, stability, power, vision and posture all influence the body's mechanics.

Utilizing our physical screening process, we measure your ability to generate and transfer speed and determine the most efficient energy transfer throughout your body. We will isolate any physical limitations, correlate these findings to your swing technique and prescribe a custom-conditioning program.

We can then match your swing technique with your physical attributes to help you build a more repeatable and efficient golf swing.

Whole Body Vibration(WBV)

What is it?

On a WBV machine, the platform you stand on moves very rapidly. This controlled motion is transferred up through your body.  All of your body tissues are forced to react to the stimulus of the vibrating platform.  Blood flow increases considerably and more oxygen gets circulated throughout your body.  Lymphatic drainage improves which aids in detoxification and increased bone mineral density.

The way you position your body on the vibrating platform determines what tissues are affected.  You have complete control over the body part you want to target and how challenging the workout is.

The History:

The origins of Whole Body Vibration technology can be traced back to the Swedish gymnast, physician, and inventor Gustav Zander (1835-1920) and Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (1852-1943).

The Germans picked up on the health and wellness benefits that vibration technology offered in the 1960’s by developing an exercise technique called rhythmic neuromuscular stimulation.

Then the Russians moved vibration technology forward for good in the 1960’s. The space race between the Russians from Eastern Europe and the United States from the west fueled research and development of all kinds of new products. The Soviets quickly realized that being exposed to zero gravity conditions in outer space caused severe deterioration of bone mineral density and muscle tissue. The concept of humans living with the constant force of Earth’s gravity is where the theory behind WBV originated.

The Russian space program used Whole Body Vibration as a way to simulate weight bearing loads for their cosmonauts while training and rehabbing before, during, and after trips in outer space.

Introducing WBV in zero gravity conditions is something that worked to simulate the forces of gravity when there isn’t any. Cosmonauts (and now NASA) used WBV machines to maintain bone mineral density and muscle strength. Instead of being too weak to walk upon returning from orbit, the Russian cosmonauts were returning from space in almost the same condition as when they left.

Ever wonder why the Russians were so dominant in the Olympics during the 1980’s. You guessed it...their athletes were using WBV regularly in training and rehabilitation programs.

German Universities continued their own research on the effects of WBV. Many studies were done on a variety of effects on the body, such as WBV and Osteoporosis, developing muscle mass, improving balance and circulation, rehabilitation for injuries, weight loss, and the like.

The Benefits:

There are numerous benefits of WBV training as evidenced by its acceptance in major medical, rehabilitation and therapeutic centers across the country. 

  • WBV works and tones your muscles more efficiently than conventional exercises
  • WBV increases your lymphatic drainage and the release of endorphins
  • WBV trains your equilibrium sense for improved balance and coordination
  • WBV enhances your blood flow and oxygenation
  • WBV improves bone mineral density
  • WBV lowers your stress hormone Cortisol

The health benefits are multifold and results can be achieved easily no matter which type of WBV technology you use. WBV can enhance your general well being and quality of life regardless of age, current exercise habits, or physical condition.  WBV training is not difficult, but it can be challenging – it can be as simple or as hard as you make it.

Practical experience indicates that there are a number of disorders where it is beneficial to integrate Whole Body Vibration training into ones treatment.

The Research:

WBV is backed by over 40 years of scientific research.  Athletes, astronauts, and celebrities have been using WBV for years.  The research is proven and sound.  We know that WBV can do wonders for strength, flexibility, balance, energy levels, and overall well-being.  If you focus on making a small change in your nutrition, rest, and cardiovascular exercise while using WBV you will feel and see significant gains in your health and wellness.

There are literally hundreds of research studies that have been published concerning WBV.  Download the collection of studies that's focused on what you're most interested in.
