Developed by German-born Joseph Pilates in the early 20th Century, Pilates comprises exercises which help to develop a strong core, improve balance, co-ordination, postural control and efficiency. These aims are achieved through eight key principles;
Concentration, Centering, Breathing, Isolation, Routine, Precision, Control, Flowing Movement
Clinical Pilates is a variation of Traditional Pilates, continually shaped and advanced by current best practice guidelines. It is designed for people experiencing health issues, pain and for rehabilitation following injury or surgery. Generally delivered in a 1:1 setting or small groups, pilates exercises are adapted to the appropriate level for you and your pain and progressed when possible and tolerated. Sessions with Naomi allow you to feel and understand the strengths and weaknesses in your body and how this could be contributing to pain and dysfunction. Clinical Pilates creates balance between muscle groups, lengthening short muscles and strengthening long muscles and encouraging optimum function throughout the body.
Naomi uses myofascial release, joint mobilisations, soft tissue work and Kinesio-taping alongside the provision of a clear, goal centred home exercise programme. This unique combination of skills and experience allows me to assess your injury or condition and adapt your rehabilitation to work towards your tailored goals. I work with a team of medical and allied health professionals, Nutritionists, Acupuncturists and Personal Trainers to ensure an integrated approach to your health.
A Pilates Reformer looks like a single bed with sliding carriage and variable resistance springs. For those who are unable to exercise in standing it allows painful joints to be strengthened safely. You can sit, stand, lie or kneel allowing a plethora of exercises.
Naomi teaches matwork Pilates classes at Surrey Hills Rehab in Smithbrook Kilns near Cranleigh. This is a workout tailored to those with Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and Stroke amongst other neurological conditions. It is low-impact, slow-paced and is focused on improving mind-body connection and activation of our central ‘core’ muscles.

PHYSIO BY VIDEO APPOINTMENT
What is Telehealth?
I have years of experience in telephone triage for the NHS so I am able to deliver the same great outcomes using a video-based programme. Evidence confirms that these consultations provide the same, if not better, outcomes for patients and include comprehensive home exercise prescription and monitoring.
How can it be just as good?
Experienced clinicians are taught to rely on initial questioning to diagnose our patient’s condition. Physical assessment is then simply used to prove themselves wrong or right and often only requires 2-4 tests. A lot of these tests are functional such as a squat which is very visible on a laptop screen.
What if my condition is more serious or requires scans?
Physiotherapists are well placed to identify serious conditions that require further investigation. We never want people to go and spend hours in A & E waiting to be assessed especially if we know it’s not necessary. But even more in these unprecedented times we want to help you follow the government guidance and keep yourself isolated to prevent risk of infection. Rest assured that if I am concerned about serious pathology I will refer you onwards to the right service.
And for the treatment?
Although I can’t put my hands on you and release off those tight, sore muscles during treatment a good physiotherapist will be talking you through lifestyle adaptations and mutually deciding the best path forwards. Following treatment, we then teach you the best possible movements that will ease your pain and prevent it coming back in the long term. All of these things we can still do online.
Couldn’t I just ask Google?
Athough “Dr Google” can have some good advice this is not specific to you as it doesn’t take into account the stage of injury, your specific body including past injuries or medical conditions and the demands you place upon it. Telehealth allows time and person specific advice.
What do I need?
You will need a laptop of tablet that is connected to the internet with a working microphone and camera. I will simply send you some login details and call you at the mutually agreed time.
If online video consultations are new for you – lets arrange a FREE 10-minute Telehealth taster session so you get a chance to experience the platform. I can also show you some of the home exercise programs I can create for you.
