WEFS National Annual Review May 2017

A fabulous day held at PITC Pymble Sydney, Saturday 27th May 2017   This year, the WEFS training included repertoire progressions from Intermediate to late Intermediate and Advanced repertoire using the Ped-a-Pul and High Barrel. We met with other National WEFS, faculty and management to listen and discuss information pertaining to the development of the student training programs in our facilities.  It was a great opportunity to recognise all WEFS have an important role in the development and support of PITC Pilates students and we all can learn from each other with regard to the issues and benefits associated with this responsibility. Personally, I love to listen and be involved with Pilates instructors who are passionate about the industry and want to see the best outcomes for all those  involved. Thank you PITC for your time and support.

Remedial Massage Definition and Requirements for Benefit Payment

Medibank’s remedial massage definition and requirements for benefit payment Remedial massage definition Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. It’s performed to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal health after injury and is defined by the premise that the treatment can reasonably reverse certain physical effects a patient may be presenting. If a patient has suffered a moderate injury resulting in structural pain  and/or loss of function, then remediation is required to reduce or eliminate pain and restore that function. Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position; increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury.[…]

Active Pilates Lorna Jane Movement Event

Active Pilates Ormeau opened our new Pilates studio in January 2016.  We were proud to host an event in December of 2016 called, ‘Active Pilates Lorna Jane Movement Event’.  We used this opportunity to show case Pilates Studio workouts, training sessions and current Lorna Jane Activewear Clothing that is available to purchase from our store. This was held as a trial event with our fabulous clients performing their Pilates repertoire on the studio equipment and 10 invited guests gave us invaluable feedback on how we can best represent Active Pilates and Lorna Jane Activewear in our community. After the Friday evening event, I think we all looked at the event in a different way.  We will look forward to enlightening the Ormeau community midyear 2017 in the services that are available right here in their back yard, providing quality Pilates training in Matwork and Studio equipment as well as quality[…]
