The McCall Pilates Studio & Tara Osborne DPT, PRC have joined to offer Postural Restoration with a Pilates twist. This unique service is a rare offering in the Pacific Northwest. Postural Restoration pairs wonderfully with Pilates as it places emphasis on addressing the specific needs of the human body’s natural asymmetry.
Why is Postural Restoration important? How does it fit into my Pilates practice?
The neurological, respiratory, circulatory, muscular and vision systems are not the same on the left side of the body as they are on the right, and vice versa. They have different responsibilities, function, position and demands on them. The body’s asymmetry is a good thing and an amazing design. The human body is balanced through the integration of system imbalances. The torso, for example, is balanced with a liver on the right and a heart on the left. Extremity dominance is balanced through reciprocal function; i.e. left arm moves with right leg, and vice versa.
Tara Osborne is trained and credentialed to recognize these imbalances and typical patterns associated with system disuse or weakness that develops because of dominant overuse. Creating a customized assessment of your body’s mechanics, Tara and the McCall Pilates Studio will work with you to create a program designed to address your specific needs.
