"THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF PILATES TUITION –
NOT LIKE YOUR AVERAGE GYM CLASS"
What is Pilates?
The Pilates method was developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s. It is a body conditioning technique, working on controlled movement from a central core of stability, principally around the low back and pelvis.
The principles of Pilates can be applied to everything we do in the day, such as how we sit in the car or stand in a queue. Your posture and how you hold yourself is so important and often neglected.
Is Perfect Motion Pilates suitable for you?
Yes! Everyone can benefit from Pilates, whoever you are and whatever goals you have.
Whether you are experiencing pain, have just had an operation, are pre- or post-natal, you can still do Pilates with us at Perfect Motion Physio Pilates.
Why practice Pilates?
Pilates is excellent for improving your general health and fitness and how your body moves and functions. It can be used to help tone and condition muscle, recover from injury, or improve sporting performance at every level.
Don't wait for an injury! We put our cars in for service every year, but do we do the same for our bodies? You only get one body ... Invest in it!
Many people are at risk of developing poor postural habits. The human body is brilliant at coping and compensating for poor biomechanics, especially posture, and it's not always easy to notice when our body is not moving as well as it could be.
Why Perfect Motion Pilates?
Perfect Motion Pilates offers you a specialist service using a clinical, physiotherapy approach to Pilates. This ensures the highest quality of Pilates tuition with small group classes and a pre-class 1:1 screening session. With such an in-depth knowledge of how the body works and how to correct and improve things when they go wrong, you can be safe in the knowledge that you’re doing the very best for your body with our classes. Becky will work alongside you, tailoring a Pilates programme to your body and what you want to achieve.
The foundation of Pilates is centred on using our core muscles, which are positioned around your pelvis and lower back. It is surprising how many people do not activate their core muscles correctly, even if they have practised Pilates before. For this reason, Perfect Motion Pilates concentrates on how to activate your core correctly in your pre-class 1:1 session.
Becky has been teaching Pilates since 2006 to people from all walks of life including people wanting to alleviate back pain, people who want to improve their posture, pre- and post-natal conditioning, and athletes.
Bill and Becky often work alongside each other with physiotherapy and Pilates to help people achieve their goals.
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. Physiotherapy works to address problems with the muscle, bone or soft tissue through using manual therapy, exercise, advice and education.
What do we treat?
At Perfect Motion Physio, we commonly treat:
– back and neck pain
– sports injuries
– knee injuries
– pre and post operative rehabilitation
– pregnancy and post natal conditions
– shoulder problems
in addition to all other musculoskeletal problems, working with all aspects of recovery and rehabilitation.
We also offer general maintenance sessions to keep your body happy and healthy. You don't have to be in pain to come and see us!
Using a focused manual therapy approach, we will work to improve joint, muscle and soft tissue limitations and often use this in conjunction with an individualised and specific therapeutic exercise program. The focus of our treatment is not just on resolving the symptoms, but getting to the root cause of the problem, to help you recover as fully as is possible. We want you to get back to the pitch/desk/garden and back to normal life as soon as possible!
As part of our physiotherapy treatment we use the following methods:
– joint mobilisations
– exercise rehabilitation and program setting
– myofascial release
– dry needling and acupuncture
– rigid sports taping and kinesiology taping
– deep tissue massage and trigger point release
– pilates and postural correction
At Perfect Motion Physio, we are passionate about injury prevention and making your body work better for you. We really believe in investing in your body. You only get one body! We will work with you to help limit the risk of further injury and problems and give you the tools and knowledge for effective management going forwards in the short and long term.

Professional and friendly Pilates 1:1
" Less aches and pain and generally feeling my body is stronger from within. I would obviously recommend!!! "
I am so thrilled at the overall improvement in my physical strength and wellbeing

which cleverly revealed the weaker areas in my body and helped Becky direct the Pilates sessions to strengthen these. The sessions have become invaluable to me. Becky is endlessly supportive and encouraging and she adapts each session to my particular needs at the time so they are always challenging and interesting, and achieve results! "
" I have been attending Perfect Motion Physio Pilates classes for twelve weeks and I am thoroughly enjoying it. The sessions take place in a beautiful studio set in rolling hills with a view across horse paddocks.

Each session is perfectly planned beginning with gentle warm up stretching, leading through exercises and finishing with a cool down stretch, by the end of which I'm always surprised we have completed a full hour and feel utterly relaxed. I am 30 weeks pregnant with my second child, I have hypermobility and SPD and have found the gentle exercises have really improved my core strength and enabled me to walk unaided for far longer than my previous pregnancy. I feel safe in the knowledge that Becky is a Physiotherapist and classes are small enough for her to keep an eye on each of us, correcting our position when necessary. It's a shame I have to take a break to have my baby now! I look forward to starting again in the future."
" Having suffered from niggles preparing for a long distance cycle event, I had a movement assessment with bill. He then put together a targeted, simple and practical program, which enabled me to complete the event with a great result. "
" Bill came to see me after I was in agony with my hip he was very knowledgable quickly identified there was a major problem and suggested a scan I have since had a hip replacement and I'm looking forward to starting physio with Bill to aid my recovery. "
Improved my performance
" Bill's exercises helped to address my areas of weakness, improve my performance and increase my enjoyment of the sports I play. "
" I have been seeing Bill and more recently Becky at Perfect Motion Physio since my lumber spine injury in June. They both provide a very professional and thorough service. Highly recommended! "
“ Bill and Perfect Motion were really effective. Diagnosis was spot on, exercise regime I followed really helped recovery and he was really easy and efficient to deal with. I highly recommend using Bill. ”
