Through functional medicine, the nutritional therapist can identify potential imbalances and how they contribute to symptoms and poor health. Functional medicine enables the nutritional therapist to use a systems-orientated approach which can address nutritional imbalances and support the body towards the optimisation of good health.
As a nutritional therapist, my role is to listen to your health goals; with your specific goal in mind we will create a strategy that encourages you to make the diet and lifestyle changes needed.
Have more energy, look amazing and feel your best!
Some of the main core muscles are the erector spinae (located in your back along your spine), the internal and external obliques (the sides of your abdomen), the transverse abdominals (located deep in your gut, this muscle pulls your belly button in toward your spine), the rectus abdominals (the ‘six-pack’), and hip flexors (in your pelvis and upper leg). Through improved core and spinal control many people find they have reduced incidences of accident and injury including chronic complaints such as back pain.
Additionally, it was noted very early in the development of Pilates that participants had reduced recovery times from injury – this was one of the many reasons it became a favourite of the dances at the New York ballet school.
Pilates was originally created in the 1920s by Joseph Hubertus Pilates. Pilates had suffered from asthma and rickets throughout childhood; this led him to dedicate his life to improving his health and wellbeing. He trained in a range of physical fitness forms including gymnastics, boxing, bodybuilding and yoga.
