The aim of Clinical Pilates is to strengthen the core trunk muscles, tone other muscles, provide flexibility, and improve posture, balance and breathing control.

It is also used to aid recovery from injuries or after surgery.

Clinical Pilates at The London Clinic is incorporated into rehabilitation programmes under the guidance of highly experienced and trained physiotherapists.

It includes mat exercises, Swiss ball exercises and exercises on specialist equipment such as our Pilates reformer.
