Health fund changes- changes to policy on Pilates

We are still delivering a great exercise system to practitioners but changing our product’s name to manage the health fund changes that have come about due to the Federal Health department’s decision about Pilates exercise. Somehow Clinical Pilates delivered by physiotherapists and exercise physiologists has been put into the same bucket as many scientifically unfounded alternative therapies.

Renaming what we do is now necessary for health fund clients.

History of Joseph Pilates

joseph pilates 01Joseph Pilates, the founder of “Pilates” was many years ahead of his time in his understanding of movement control and the importance of core stability and how movement needed a strong core. He called the core muscles the Powerhouse in his 1945 publication and was writing of the importance of light engagement of these muscles in functional standing stipulating 25% bracing leaving a 75% reserve in case it is required. 

Contemporary research by physiotherapists at UQ in the late 1980s reconfirmed the importance of light constant engagement of deep core muscles when in upright positions. They also recommended 20-25% engagement of these muscles in relaxed standing positions.
