Natural Fitness and Chronic Pain Relief
We, Olga and Mark, have been helping our clients overcome lingering chronic pain and discomfort since 2001. We pay a lot of attention to individual needs and work with clients of all levels, from recovering athletes, chronic pain sufferers to regular wellness-oriented enthusiasts.
Pilates is good for rebuilding strength, balance and mobility. We integrate Pilates exercises with ABM work to amplify and reinforce its benefits. Our clients learn to overcome shoulder pain, knee pain and other conditions in a natural and fun way. We offer private, semi-private and small group Pilates sessions at our fully equipped studio in San Mateo, CA. Read more about Pilates.
Feldenkrais-based method (ABM modality)
Working with children with special needs
In addition to being very effective for adults with chronic pain, ABM modality of Feldenkrais is widely known as a very powerful system that helps Children with Special Needs. The method has proven to be very effective and we are honored to have this opportunity to help children with special needs and their parents. Olga received a Children Mastery certification in Anat Baniel Method.
Sedentary lifestyle and occupation-related conditions
A Sedentary lifestyle adds a big risk factor for many physical and neurological injuries in addition to other problems that come with prolonged sitting or other repetitive activity. In order to successfully help clients, Mark integrates all our methods as part of a full transformation from a “chronic sitter” with aches, pains and lack of energy to a pain-free, agile and successful client.
Natural chronic pain relief
Our core principle is not to force any improvements. Most of the people with chronic conditions are not ready to be “fixed” because they are not the same as they used to be. Unfortunately, that is what chronic conditions do to us.
The focus of our work is to acquire new movement patterns and reacquire long-lost skills. We have very powerful and world-recognized training techniques to help us.
