My goal is to get your body to move as well as it possibly can.
Using specialized treatment techniques and exercises personally tailored to you, I can help you build strength, flexibility and condition your body to allow you to move better and feel better in your every day life.
I use a hands on approach to physiotherapy, aiming to quickly target the root cause of the injury and effectively treat the body as a whole rather than simply treating the acute area. By treating this way, you are able to achieve longer lasting release to better heal your injury, and prevent any further decline.
I have been trained in and utilise a variety of treatments including active release technique, dry needling, cupping, manual therapy and joint mobilisations to achieve the best possible release for you.
Alongside the hands-on therapy, I offer a tailored training program with incorporated stretches, triggering techniques and stability exercises to help relieve symptoms and assist progression of the healing process. Combining this tailored program will ensure specific and measurable outcomes for continued healing.
The last and longest phase, is the strengthening phase. Or as I like to call it, the ‘lifestyle’ phase. This comes after the acute injury site or pain symptoms have been relieved. This is a further progression from the rehabilitation program, aiming to build muscle as well as control in the areas of injury to help prevent any relapse of symptoms. This phase is ongoing and can be updated every 6 weeks.
"Kathleen introduced me to Reformer Pilates after a 2-year physiotherapy rehabilitation journey for back and neck pain. Before Reformer Pilates, I was unable to comfortably work in a tabletop position for longer than 4 minutes or do more than 10mins of work pain free. Now, I am able to attend 3-4 45 minute classes per week and my back and neck pain has improved immensely".
"During COVID-19, I started Kathleen’s virtual sessions six days a week for three months and had fantastic results. These sessions really helped me develop and strength my postural and supporting muscles when I was unable to use a gym. Now, I lift heavy weights 4-5 times a week. Pilates really helps to support this training by strengthening the stabilizer muscles to ensure I have a holistic approach to my overall strength training. Thank you!"
"I was introduced to Pilates 6 months ago and quickly added this to my weekly routine, as it has helped me manage my old and current injuries. Kathleen continues to challenge me, working specifically on my imbalances and areas of weakness. Since starting my Pilates journey, I have seen a huge increase in my strength and progression with weights training".
“I started Pilates with Kathleen so I could improve my pain, prevent injuries and exercise in a safe and comfortable environment. At the time I was unable to attend regular classes because I was in too much pain and couldn’t get through a full class. Kathleen tailored Pilates to meet my individual needs and happily adjusted it before our session if I was in pain and needed it altered. Kathleen has been absolutely amazing! She is kind, supportive, and encouraging! I can’t thank Kathleen enough for helping me through a really difficult time and reminding me how enjoyable exercise can be.”
Kathleen’s Pilates sessions are well crafted for the user with levelled options always offered. The depth of knowledge about the body’s physiology is presented in a very accessible way in order to assist each participant optimise their best movement. This rigour is combined with fun & total enjoyment at reaching personal goals.
‘I am a 67 year old male, typically reluctant to do Pilates ... During the lockdown I started with Kathleen Seagar leading me through 2 sessions per week. now I want more! Kathleen is a superb leader and I feel so much stronger and fitter. I recommend you start online asap!"
I have been doing Online Pilates classes with Kathleen for the past 4 months. Online Pilates has improved my fitness and given me a greater feeling of flexibility and stability, as well as helping me reach my weight loss goals. Cant wait to do more classes anytime I like from the new website. Highly recommend!
