Set it Free with FST®

“I recently experienced Fascial Stretch with Susan of Englewood Pilates Center. What a positive difference it made! I am “of a certain age” where everything hurts and I find myself limping. No major problems or complaints, just not right. Susan worked magic! I felt so good after being stretched and I stood straighter and moved so much more easily!”
I love happy students!  Fascial Stretch Therapy® is simply amazing. Whether you are a professional athlete, a weekend wild child or someone who prefers the couch and remote, FST improves how you feel.   The pain-free method, works with the connective tissue of the body. “FST improves mobility of your nerves and flexibility of your muscles and fascia.”  Methods you may be more familiar with focus on isolated stretching of muscles that may be uncomfortable or even painful; the results often don’t last.   Benefits of FST include:
Decreased pain caused by tension and stress
Increased flexibility, mobility and range of motion
Increased strength and power
Improved balance and coordination and posture

Caring for your busy self

Beach walking and hunting for shark’s teeth – which my family has dubbed “toothing” is a great way to spend time.    But occasionally I have found ankle stiffness, tight calves or hip pain after hours on the shoreline.

Englewood Pilates Center can offer some simple solutions, effective tools to assist you with taking care of yourself.

Foot and ankle health is key to lower body health and flexibility.  Set an appointment today for  the new client special.  Let’s take a look at what will help you feel and move better!

How do you deal with inflammation?

Summer offers so many options to get outside and enjoy!  Hiking, biking, paddle boarding, swimming, kayaking, boating along with your usual Pilates sessions — keep us so busy during the long, sunny days.  It is such a great time of year.

Do you ever overdo?  Spend too long paddling around or that one extra set of beach volley ball?

Did you know that essential oils offer relief?  doTerra essential oils have chemical properties that offer immune boosting reactions within the body to assist with fighting inflammation.

Frankincense, melaleuca, eucalyptus, oregano, lavender, roman chamomile, myrrh, peppermint, wintergreen, juniper berry, helichrysum, cedarwood – and believe it or not even more all can improve your body’s response to swelling.

Bug bites?  Trying to keep those pesky insects away?  doTerra TerraShield is truly effective “shielding” you.  Roman chamomile, basil, lavender, lemongrass, lemon, peppermint and thyme and a blend called “purify” are all very handy weapons against these seasonal pests.  I seem to be like catnip to the littlest of biting insects – I am always blending a soothing response to my body’s hyper reaction of redness, itch and sting.

Questions?  I am happy to help.
