Surprise to Sweat
I have been positively surprised by the sweat after the Pilates sessions with May. As someone who has spent many hours in the gym, (I didn't expect the intensity of Pilates exercise.) The moves targeted at “small muscles” have brought new inspiration and fun to exercise.
Able to Sit on Hard Chairs, Feel Refresh
I’d been having back pain when I sit. I couldn’t sit for long because of the pain. Sitting for a meeting became a problem. Since yesterday after the session (of manual therapy and Pilates,) I experienced a vast improvement. I'm able to sit even on hard chairs. When I got home yesterday, I was completely exhausted and slept very well. I am refreshed today. Thank you.
Started Pilates During Pregnancy
First try at Pilates when I found out about my pregnancy! Instructor May is patient and encouraging, she takes extra care as I approach my due date. Also, studio is clean and hygiene!
A Wonderful Experience, Prenatal Pilates
I started doing Prenatal Pilates with May in my second trimester. Although it’s my first time, May has made Pilates very easy and comfortable to pick up and she is always very attentive to my postures during class. Thank you for the wonderful experience and I highly recommend for any mummies to-be looking for prenatal exercise (:
Looking Out For What I Need
WOW! It has been a different experience for me at the Pilates sessions with May as from the others I went to! Love how May looks out for what I need to strengthen, and customises the sessions to suit me. Totally awesome!
Feeling Like A Million Dollars
May is INCREDIBLY knowledgeable. Every time I walk out (of the Pilates session) feeling like a million dollars!
Awaken Many Tiny Muscles
Thank you a thousand times. You gave me the beginnings of a 6 pack, made me so much more aware of my body and breathing. So many tiny / lazy muscles have been awakened!
Recover From Wrist Injury
May has a wide experience in this field. Her physiology expertise is guaranteed 100%, as she has mastered the ability to see, touch & feel every vein, muscle, tendon and joint to pinpoint the inflammation (on my wrist.) I have a wrist injury that occured 6 months ago. I recently completed 6 sessions with her. My condition has improved tremendously. I have gained back my confidence in executing complex exercise movements, thanks to her.
Finding Symmetry Despite Scoliosis
I have had scoliosis for 30 years. My left and right upper back and buttocks become asymmetric. With customised Pilates exercise, I saw my upper back and butts more equal for the first time. Thank you!
Given Me Hope That I'll Walk Normally Again
May has given me hope that I will in the near future, be able to walk normally again with minimal pain in my knees. She is great at getting to the root of the problem, in correcting muscular imbalances through manual therapy, pilates and home exercises. Thank you, May!
Reversing The Effects of Sitting
I spend lots of hours sitting on a chair, in front of my laptop and that's harmful for my body and specially my back. I see May every week for Pilates and she helps me restore balance, finding healthier postures for my body and releasing from the weekly erosion.
Countering the Effects of Medication, Feeling Stronger
Post surgery, I was looking for a physical trainer to partner with in counteracting the effects of long term medication, and in building a stronger body for health reasons. After a year of training with May, my walking gait has improved, knees feel stronger and better supported by muscular mass built through exercises planned by May. I feel confident that I can depend on her expertise to address pain in the body and more importantly learn new habits to slowly build a stronger, pain-free body. Thank you May for being a very important part of my healing process!
Ease the Effects of Chemotherapy
Cancer and chemotherapy have greatly affected and changed my body and mind. During chemotherapy, I have developed chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. A year into post chemotherapy, the side effects, pain and discomforts lingered on. My hands and legs were frequently stiff, swollen and tingling with pins and needles. I was struggling with fatigue, balance and mobility.
I met May at Move Therapy in January 2018. Her studio is no frills but well equipped and personable. May did not paint me any rosy promises or rainbow illusions. She did some evaluations and suggested we can start with some rehabilitation and strengthening workouts. I never looked elsewhere after our initial workout and I have been going to her since.
Thanks to her guidance and motivation, I have physically improved and no longer suffering in pain and discomfort. The tingling pins and needles in my hands and feet have much subdued and most important, I am no longer struggling with my balance and mobility.
Relieves Knee Pain, Improves Fitness
I'm glad to have May as my Pilates instructor. May has helped me with my bad knee through exercises and orthopedic manipulation. She is also very patient, and committed to my body's improvement beside my knee.
Really like the Pilates class, better flexibility
I really like the Pilates class because May explains it very well. As such, I can actually do the exercise quite easily. At the same time, I can feel improvement in my flexibility. I hope she continues teaching the class at NUS.
A surprisingly pleasant intro to Pilates
Thank you for a very surprisingly pleasant introduction to Pilates. I am an experienced athlete and a professional diver with chronic stiffness in the neck and shoulders. Today, I found new skills to augment what I already knew, and a focus on proper technique for great results. I felt very effectively engaged.
Weekly Pilates, important in my schedule
I often wear high heels which affect my posture. I walked with a hunch. I have the pleasure of improving my posture in the Pilates classes at Move Therapy. When I see myself in the mirror, I see the change. I stand straight. I put Pilates down as important in my schedule. I make it a point to come for exercise every week.
The Best Part, My Lower Back Pain Has Gone Away
I attended Pilates classes because of my lower back pain that came about after National Service. I had fears prior to joining May’s Pilates session as the only guy in class, but her non-judgemental attitude very quickly eased my worries and concerns. I started to enjoy the sessions more and more each week with her patient guidance. The best part is that now my lower back pain has gone away!
Any stiffness always get relieved
I always leave every Pilates session feeling mobile and supple. Any stiffness and other related conditions, that came with a desk-bound job, always get relieved. It is because May’s approach to exercise is holistic. Clients are more aware of their everyday movement when they get to practice the movement in the sessions; the emphasis on connecting the breath and mind is also important. I wish there were more like her in the industry! I miss my sessions when I’m away.
Back Care class is fun, therapeutic
I have fun in the Back Care class. Who would have thought you could use foam roller, spike ball, exercise bands and even a tennis ball to loosen the lower back? The pain can be intense on the parts of the body where the muscles are tight. As I learn to relax into it, the painful sensation feels good. That is when I think my body gets pampered. My lower back is stronger also with the exercises in class, and I get to iron out the knots in my body. So therapeutic. I hope classes will continue as long as possible.
Each week I walk away with a smile
Just completed my 6th Pilates session and I feel great. I have really noticed the difference already. I am feeling stronger and fitter from my sessions. The care, precision and attention, that May provides, has allowed me to make quick progress and to concentrate on my posture, core strength and flexibility. I love attending my reformer session and each week I walk away with a smile!
Less tired after a long day at work
I am in my 40s. I can feel that my lower back and kneecap are starting to weaken. After I attended May's Pilates lessons, I can feel that I have improved in terms of strength, fitness and balance. I have learned to strengthen and stretch certain parts of our body muscles that we rarely work on in our daily life. My body posture has also improved tremendously, and I feel less tired after a long day of work in front of a computer.
Each session I see improvement
I was fortunate to connect with May at Move Therapy to heal my shoulder and back issues. On day one, she did a thorough assessment of my posture and range of motion. She made a great exercise plan for me. With each session I could see the improvement, and magically my pain went away. Still before starting each session, she would assess then adjust the exercises accordingly. Thank you May for relieving my pain and giving me a new understanding on how I can maintain my body balance and posture!! I strongly recommend Move Therapy to anybody who is in pain, and if you are not in pain, the sessions will let you gain a new understanding of the human body.
I'm running more, have less injury
I am an avid runner. I run 10km a few times a week. I had hurt my ankles, calves just to name a few of the body parts I’d injured from running. Many of times I didn’t wait until I have completely recovered before I resumed running. It had resulted in the injury being prolonged. After attending May’s Pilates classes for about a year, I have gained better awareness of my body and movement. May taught me a lot about core strengthening, maintaining good posture and about movement. I’m more aware of my running posture. I find myself correcting my posture on the go like altering my foot alignment when I encounter discomfort, as well as how to stretch after. I can run more often because I have less injury now. Thank you May.
My 2017 Highlight is your Pilates Classes
"One good thing that happened to me in 2017 is attending your Pilates classes. I have chronic lower back pain since early 20s. I am in my 30s now. From a MRI scan a year ago, I found I have ‘lesser fluid’ on two of my lower back discs which might be the cause of my back pain.
Sometimes, sitting was just annoying and I’d to take leave from my desk or from what I was doing to lie down. I’d been visiting TCM for quick reliefs when the pain was unbearable. I did some yoga and exercises through the years. They helped but they seemed to bring me other issues like knee discomfort, and a feeling of imbalance on my lower back. It could be I was doing these yoga poses and exercises wrongly. However, in your Pilates classes, the instructions are very detailed and clear on which part of the body I should be working on. Hence, I am able to do the pose with confidence without having to worry I might injure my back further. The lower back feels so soft after each lesson.
After so many years of searching for an answer, the solution to my lower back problem is Pilates, where ‘The pelvis is the centre of the body where everything begins’ 🙂 Thank you!"
NO MORE BACK PAIN, HEADACHE
"I suffered from severe upper back pain and headache in 2012 - 2013. At the same time, I was also suffering from back pain, leg cramps and weak ankles. I was introduced to May for manual therapy and exercise. She not only loosened but also showed me how to loosen the tight muscles on my own, using balls and rollers gradually, through a well thought-out program. She was always patient. She never forced me to do exercises which I thought that were quite beyond me. I learned good posture, and how to maintain good standing and sitting postures. I really appreciate May’s help in solving my chronic pain and correcting my bad posture."
"The result is amazing! My posture has improved. I now stand taller and walk with greater balance. I enjoy every Pilates class with its varied exercises using muscles that I did not know I have."
NO MORE KNEE PAIN
"I was so worried about climbing Wutai Shan (Shanxi, China) because I'd knee pain. I wanted to perform the Buddhist rite of walk, pray and kneel on every three steps up the 1,080 stairs of the sacred mountain. It was the main reason for going. It would be very difficult to do with my kneecap problem. My sister recommended Move Therapy to me. After one session, I was so surprised there was no more pain on my kneecap. I felt I was walking with very light steps. The relief was so immediate, it took me by surprise. Of course, I continued to roll after, using the foam roller. It wasn't just from one class at Move Therapy, but the class showed me how to and on which area of my legs I should focus on when I roll. I was able to walk, pray and kneel up Wutai Shan. A wish come true. No knee pain. Thank you."
LOVE THE CLASS
"I love the Pilates class! The clear, well-structured and creative exercises sometimes left me feeling sore, but glad I went. The instructor tailored the exercises to suit class members, provided individual attention to everyone on alignment and posture improvement. I found her “hands on” approach very helpful. It helped me understand what I need to work on. Going to the classes have improved my posture, flexibility and strength. Definitely for people who are interested in increasing their flexibility, balance and strength!"
SHOULD HAVE STARTED SOONER
MY BACK FEELS BETTER
"I'm in my early 20s. Having a lower back strain for close to 3 years, I can really feel the difference after attending May's Pilates group lessons. I’ve been attending for 10 weeks. I can feel that my posture has improved significantly and my back doesn't hurt as often as before. Thank you!"
KEEP PAIN AWAY ACTIVELY
"I'd dizzy spells and headache. They were so bad that I’d been unable to work. I saw many health professionals and nothing worked until I saw May. In my one-to-one sessions, May relieved the tension from my neck and shoulders, and she showed me how I can actively keep the pain away through rolling and exercise. With exercise, my legs are also stronger. I can walk further. I climbed Mt Fuji in Japan with my husband in 2015. A year ago, I won't have thought I would be able to join my husband on the trip up Mt Fuji."
LISTENING & CONSIDERATE
"I underwent surgery at the end of 2015 and upon recovery, I needed to look into rehabilitation. May has not only helped with the mobility of my shoulder and the building of my body’s muscle mass, but she has also vastly helped with the improvement of my posture. I not only feel better but look better! Surely there are many fitness trainers and gyms all over Singapore but what sets May apart from them is that she is someone who is not just constantly learning in the expertise of fitness and rehabilitation but she is one who is observant, listening and considerate to her clients’ physical conditions and their fitness aspirations. It is the progress in the process that leads to the results. I’m truly blessed to have May as my personal fitness trainer!"
NO MORE FEAR
"I’d persistent lower back pain after giving birth to my daughter. I saw many healthcare professionals, but my back didn’t get better. But since starting my private sessions, my pain has gone. Before I didn’t want to move out of fear my back would act up, but not anymore. I’ve started running, and recently completed a 5-km run. Thank you!"
