I have two more retreat days planned: Sunday 11th June & Sunday 8th October
Get in touch now for full details and to reserve your place!
At Kingsley House we can offer 1 to 1 and small group basis pilates.
The studio is fully equipped with the complete range of original spring-driven apparatus designed and created by Joseph Pilates. Working with the amazing findings of 'Thomas W Myers' Anatomy Trains Lines it restores the health and functionality of the body.
The studio equipment supports movement pattens so you learn to move without strain and stress so you can re-pattern and re-set the body to its full potential. The benefits extend beyond the ‘physical’. The more efficient the body moves, the better you feel mentally and spiritually.
Myofascial Release Therapy
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe and very effective hands on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. The MFR therapist provides a sustained, gentle, pressure for 5 to 8 minutes allowing the trained therapist to feel through the system to encourage the fascia to elongate, naturally and return to its pre-restriction resting length restoring health and providing results, which are both measureable and functional. There is an initial consultation, then a posture analysis followed by the treatment, which is conducted, on the massage couch in your underwear, where you will be covered with towels for your comfort.
Fascia is a specialised system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web. An example of Myofascia would be when you remove the skin from a chicken breast, it is similar to the white filmy tissue in the chicken. Fascia surrounds, infuses and protects every other tissue, tendon, muscle, bone ligament and organ of the body in healthy conditions the fascial system is relaxed and wavy in configuration. When one experiences physical trauma, emotional trauma, scarring or inflammation, however, the fascia loses its pliability Fascial restrictions do not show up on CAT scans, MRI’s or X-Rays therefore many patients are suffering unresolved physical and emotional pain due to undiagnosed fascial trauma.
