Petaluma Pilates with Anne offers Hendrickson Orthopedic Massage and Manual Therapy®. Hendrickson Orthopedic Massage can easily be sequenced into your private Pilates session. The instructor utilizes Hendrickson and Pilates together to change holding patterns in the body with lasting and integrated results.
Hendrickson Orthopedic Massage uses massage techniques, joint mobilization and contraction and relaxation of muscles to reduce pain and improve joint function.
An experience combining Hendrickson Orthopedic Massage during your Pilates session is outlined below:
- You are clothed in Pilates attire.
- You are positioned in a comfortable position with pillows and manually mobilized by the Hendrickson practitioner.
- Conversation between you and practitioner assists with muscular skeletal change.
- As muscles are released and range of motion is gained, appropriate Pilates exercises are introduced to strengthen your body’s new alignment and flexibility.
