In a recent article in the Health & Science section of the Washington Post (Jan 20, 2014), a number of experts highlighted the health risks associated with prolonged sitting, especially while watching TV.  These risks range from back and neck pain to organ damage and higher mortality rates.  The image below spells out these risks, along with tips for reducing the risks.  Through years of experience we have found that strong core muscles and good spinal flexibility are the keys to avoiding many of the issues that arise from sitting, both of which can be achieved by following a personalised Pilates program regular basis.

To help you avoid suffering from these potentially debilitating problems we are currently offering you the change to have a FREE Pilates and postural assessment to highlight any potential issues your body may have, and to be able to advise you on the best exercises to ensure you body keeps working well.  This free assessment is normally valued at $90 and is available for February in our Woolgoolga and Urunga clinics.  There are only a limited number available so call now to secure your free assessment and get your body functioning better NOW.
