Physio-Led Reformer Pilates:

Our newest core service has proved to be a great addition to our offerings, helping patients begin their rehab safely and effectively.  Due to demand we are currently running a waiting list for initial consultations.  See below for how to get on the list.


Why Choose Reformer Pilates?

"Change happens through movement and movement heals." - Joseph Pilates

Movement is fundamental to effective rehabilitation. We've moved past the era of prescribed rest, recognizing that keeping the body active is crucial for long-term recovery. Alongside manual therapy, strengthening the body's framework and refining movement patterns are vital components of any rehabilitation plan, leading to sustained symptom improvement.


Why Opt for Physio-Led Sessions?

As a chartered physiotherapist with over 30 years of rehabilitation experience, Sara assesses each patient individually, prescribing tailored Pilates exercises. You'll exercise at a level that's both safe and effective for your current condition and stage of rehabilitation.


Booking Information: 

Please note that this service is new to Guildford Chiropractic Centre, and availability is currently limited. However, more slots will become available in the coming weeks.
