Fitness & Rehab
Face & body sculpting
I love that I was able to receive physical therapy and then roll right into Pilates classes when I was strong and able. I have worked with 2 physical therapists at Synergy+. Both were helpful, gentle and informative about the approach we were taking to heal my back. The pilates classes are appropriate for all levels. I hadn’t done pilates in 12 years and was a little intimidated to start again. But the instructors at Synergy+ made it easy and fun to get back into it.
Warm, caring, and all around amazing practitioners. I appreciate an individualized approach to my care that really takes in to account my issues. Thank you, synergy! I just joined as a member, too, and am always passing the word around about you guys.
Synergy+ is a boutique Pilates and fitness studio focused on the fundamentals of Pilates with an approach centered on improving body strength and flexibility while paying attention to and identifying and correcting problematic postural and movement patterns that can cause pain. Pilates should be a fun exercise and we make sure that when you leave our studio you feel invigorated, stronger and healthier. Our Pilates classes and privates are built for anyone looking to improve fitness and achieve results without the pain or discomfort. Each class is designed to get you toned, feeling great and to support your health and fitness goals, all while having fun in a supportive and community-centric environment.
We practice Pilates-based Physical Therapy (PBPT) and we specialize in orthopedic care, sports rehab, physical fitness, exercise programming, and overall health and wellness. Our therapists are trained in orthopedics including spinal conditions, back and neck pain, fractures, acute sports injuries, arthritis, and repetitive strain injuries.
PBPT is an approach to healing through movement. Using Pilates exercises and traditional Physical Therapy we assess and treat the whole person, not just an injury or symptom. We are particularly adept at identifying and correcting problematic postural and movement patterns that can cause pain.
Pilates Based Physical Therapy encourages the patient’s active participation in the healing process and leads to faster recovery time & decreased likely-hood of re-injury.
