We at Trinity Acupuncture in Torrance want to ensure that your treatments are fully well-rounded and your road to recovery is as smooth as possible, while making big strides.  Acupuncture and dry needling have been shown to be quite effective in treating various forms of not only physical pain conditions, but also mental stress, anxiety and depression. In order to bring our treatment efficacy to the next level and give our patients more tools to gain control of their well-being, we also offer one-on-one Pilates sessions.  Acupuncture and dry needling are great for checking for imbalances in the musculoskeletal system and releasing tight muscles to help achieve biomechanical balance in the body.  However, Pilates can help do exactly just that while the body is in motion. Many patients experience great reduction in their pain levels and increased quality of life with our acupuncture and dry-needling treatments, but sometimes experience re-injury or slight regressions as they start to reincorporate exercise and other physical activity back into their routine.  During your session with Regina, our fully-licensed Pilates instructor (who also happens to be a classically trained ballerina and ballet instructor), she will be able to guide you through the motions and direct your attention to where the muscle groups are weak and where they are not firing enough, and where exactly the imbalances lie, to help break bad habits and to learn how to use your body more effectively and become less susceptible to injury.  Furthermore, Regina will ensure that proper breathing techniques are applied during the session so that your mind is fully grounded and so you are more engaged and aware of your body and its movement.

Pilates is a method of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. These exercises emphasize proper postural alignment, core strength, and muscle balance and consist of low- impact exercises that work on flexibility by elongating muscles and building muscular strength through endurance movements. 

In practice, we see many acupuncture patients benefit from Pilates in many different ways:

  • Helps with grounding and mindfulness in anxious patients as Pilates focuses on breath-work along with physical exercise
  • Works synergistically with acupuncture to obtain proper postural and structural balance by opening up the pelvic floor and spine
  • Provides added pain relief as tight muscles are stretched and elongated while underactive or weaker muscles are strengthened
  • Prevents future injury by building more mind-body awareness, increasing flexibility and core strength
  • Supports long-term effects for rehab as the body is observed closely while in motion to identify imbalances and weaknesses, and proper guidance is given for a safe but effective regimen

Pilates is adaptable for different levels of fitness and needs, and our private sessions will ensure that you have a customized plan that will help you reach your fitness or treatment goals.
