WE'RE GLOWING ONLINE
TO KEEP US ALL MOVING FORWARD,
WE ARE 'GLOWING ONLINE'
During Covid-19 we are offering an online tele-health service for Physio & Pilates*
PHYSIO: 30 minutes
* An online screening will be sent and returned prior to the consult detailing your problem and any previous injuries
* During the live online Physio assessment we observe how you move, which muscles are working well and which aren’t
doing their job properly
* Bespoke exercises addressing your individual problem will be emailed over to you within minutes of the consultation.
These are short videos and are very clear.
* What about ‘Hands-on’ treatment? Of course we can’t offer that service at the moment.
* But remember hands-on work is only a small part of your recovery
* We will continue to provide advice, reassurance and progress your graded exercises each time we catch up.
JO AT GLOW
Joanne Gilshan Bsc (Hons) MCSP HCPC
Chartered Physiotherapist and Certified Pilates instructor
In 1997, I graduated from the University of Bradford and have worked in private practice since 2004. I have a keen interest in Myo-fascial release (MFR) having completed several courses through MFR UK.
MFR is a very gentle hands on technique which focuses on releasing restrictions within the entire body's fascial system. Treatment is often directed at tight areas far from the pain itself. By identifying with the root cause this holistic technique can be incredibly effective at addressing painful dysfunctions.
Discovering Pilates transformed my practice and is an integral part of my approach to managing musculoskeletal pain dysfunction. My pilates training through the APPI and Polestar Pilates certifies me in both mat and studio Pilates.
I have also gained my certification in Ante and Post Natal Pilates.
By combining Physiotherapy with pilates based movement we feel we offer a unique approach towards a full recovery.
"Take care of your body, it's the only place you have to live"
On your first visit you will undergo an assessment to help diagnose the underlying pathology, muscle imbalance or movement dysfunction. From here Jo can identify areas which need addressing and create a bespoke treatment plan. This will often be a combination of hands on treatment and movement based exercise using the Pilates equipment.
We liaise closely with other health care professionals and doctors to ensure continuity of care.
Those with private health care insurance are very welcome.
All sessions are 55 minutes.
Glow offers private one-to-one Pilates sessions in our equipment-based studio in Wheathampstead. The private sessions allow you to work on your individual programme whilst under the close supervision of your Chartered Physiotherapist and Certified Pilates instructor Jo.
Her wealth of experience and knowledge allows Jo to work with a wide range of clientele including patients with musculo-skeletal pain; ante and post-natal clients as well as those simply wanting to improve their posture, core strength and flexibility.
We use the Pilates reformer and tower, the wunda-chair and spine-corrector barrell which are wonderful bits of kit specifically designed to aid your movement, balance and coordination.
We offer sessions during the day within school hours.
And if you need to re-schedule or cancel your appointment we require 24 hours notice.
One studio private session £65
Block of 5 private sessions £320
Block of 10 private sessions £620
All blocks are payable in advance and are non-refundable.
At Glow, we run mat classes from 9.30am-12.30pm on a Monday morning locally in Wheathampstead. These are ideal for clients wanting regular Pilates sessions.
All small equipment is provided and exercises are modified as necessary to accommodate any injuries or spinal pathologies.
Mat classes - run as a course £11 per session.
"Enjoy your body, use it every way you can. Don't be afraid of it, or what others think of it. It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own."
