Pilates / Movement

"Contrology develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit." ~ Joseph Hubertus Pilates

With over 100 years of history behind the method, Contrology, or what we now call The Pilates Method (Pilates for short), is a rich form of physical movement, breathing exercises, and mindset that assists practitioners along their journey to wellness and physicality - the path of getting to know ones’ self. When performed regularly the Pilates exercises help to strengthen / stretch / tone / and mobilize the body creating a superb whole body awareness, better sense of balance and posture, and clarity of mind and nervous system. What separates EB Studio from other Pilates studios is our ability to help you bridge your current physical abilities to those necessary to successfully complete the Pilates repertoire with ease and awareness, helping you to access your body's own wisdom, while helping you to apply what you've learned within the studio to your life outside the studio. Our goal is to partner with our students to co-create thoughtful discerning Students of Movement that can observe and decide how they move, rather than fall victim to old patterns and pains. Whether you consider yourself recovering physically, simply de-conditioned, someone who loves to move, an instructor looking to finesse skills, or an athlete gaining an edge on opponents EB Studio can help you with that goal.

Myofascial Release 

"The medical approach is to drug patients so they temporarily are free from pain, but does nothing about the 'straight-jacket' of pressure that is causing the pain." ~ John F. Barnes

Myofascial Release is a safe and effective hands-on technique designed to reduce pain and restore motion by applying gentle and sustained pressure to the restrictions within the greater web of Myofascial connective tissue. Simply put MFR is a form of body work that directly addresses the body's connective tissue (ligaments / tendons / tissue surrounding bones, muscles, nerves / etc) as a means to diminish and eliminate pain symptoms, restore mental calm, healthy muscle and nerve function, create awareness of self and space, and allow the body to glide and move with greater ease while self-healing. Massage Therapist, James Crader's, technique is heavily influenced by the John F. Barnes technique, but also draws upon his experience as a Thai Massage Therapist and somatic student. Often clients comment that the touch used in MFR treatments is exactly what their body has been asking for and craving, but they haven't had the words nor been able to articulate the needs of their body, and are glad to find there is a treatment that addresses these needs so directly. If you've tried other massage modalities but are left with the same symptom, aches, pains and empty feel, why not try something new? Why not try Myofascial Release Therapy?
