Pilates in Bristol
Pilates is an exercise system created by Joseph Pilates back in the early 1900s. The system is excellent for developing core strength and improving posture and flexibility. It is particularly effective in helping with back problems and other postural issues.
Using state of the art Pilates equipment people see and feel excellent results quickly. Whether you are a complete beginner or more experienced you will soon benefit from the enhanced sense of well being that regular Pilates sessions can give you.
Although Pilates is often prescribed for treating postural issues, the system is actually a whole body conditioning program for everyone. The mat sequence consists of 34 exercises that use gravity and your own body weight to tone and condition all your muscles. The Pilates studio apparatus, the Reformer, Cadillac, Spine Corrector and Wunda Chair are designed to help you perform the exercises with greater accuracy and precision and also enables you to work in a way that is not possible with mat work alone.

Hypnotherapy in Bristol
Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses the relaxing state of hypnosis to help with problems like stress and anxiety as well as helping people let go of habits like smoking and other addictions.
Hypnosis itself is a meditative state that helps you tap into the creative part of your brain. During a course of sessions, hypnotherapy helps you to let go of stress that has often been held on to for years. Hypnotherapy also gives you a range of self-management techniques that give you more control of troublesome thoughts and feelings.
Hypnotherapy can be used to help with a wide range of issues. The most common things I help with are stress, anxiety and depression. With most people, a course of 5 or 6 sessions can be sufficient to improve the symptoms of many issues. Habits like smoking can often be treated with just a single session.
During a typical session of hypnotherapy, we make use of the most powerful psychological tool that we have - our imagination. Most people use their imagination in unhelpful ways, thinking of negative scenarios that cause stress and anxiety. By learning to visualise the positive changes you want to create in your life, your mind can soon begin to feel more calm, relaxed and confident in a range of situations.
