Ehlers Danlos Syndrome

I feel so fortunate to have found Applied Pilates, it has been a true Godsend. My initial 15 minutes with Teejay were spent with me in desperate tears, I’d pretty much hit rock bottom with my health, I couldn’t face the state I’d got into from years of ineffective treatment for E.D.S symptoms and subsequent complete lack of exercise and the sports I had previously loved. I really couldn’t see a way through this – everything felt too difficult, too painful and too risky to my overall failing state of health.
So – here I am, one year on… After some initial 1:1 pilates sessions with Teejay, I now have the ability and belief in myself to attend a weekly group session. Teejay and Susan have nurtured the confidence in me to fully trust their Applied Pilates system, I now know that by following the exercise programme they have tailored to me I will not injure myself while using their reformer machines. I am so grateful to have happened upon their advertisement, I have gone from needing to walk with sticks for support, zero exercise, extremely reduced muscle mass, body strength and body confidence to now having built muscle in specific areas such as my hips, knees, core, neck, shoulders and back. My body is able to support itself now without the need for sticks, I only occasionally use my knee and wrist braces and when I do need additional help and a muscle has spasmed at work, I’ ll make a treatment appointment with Teejay and an hour later life continues – not as was in the past and I’d have to spend a week out off work as my muscle gradually relaxed. I honestly cannot rate Teejay, Susan and Applied Pilates enough – if you are in the situation I was in a year ago – go visit for that free 15 minutes, it may just change your life – as it has mine.
