Kind Words From Our Clients and Referring Clinicians
"I have been a Chiropractor and Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician for 35 years. I have confidently referred many patients to her practice. After the acute phase of back pain is controlled I send my patients to her for their core stabilization program. Her pilates studio offers private instruction until the patient can move to group instruction. I highly recommend Ariel and her studio." - Dr. Michael McMurray, Chiropractic Solutions "I just love this place! Ariel is both Pilates certified as well as a physical therapist and the combination of both makes her and her staff the perfect place to rehab an injury, or treat post surgical patients. They are also excellent in putting together a fitness plan for beginners as well as experts in Pilates. I have been there myself for my knee and I refer many of my patients there as a physician. I am always assured my patients will get the appropriate care and rehab protocol they need and my patients walk away always loving their sessions." - Dr. Pamela Mehta, Resilience Orthopedics
"I came to Pilates Santé seeking physical therapy for injuries and pain and for help regaining strength following extended bed rest. I feel so blessed by the care and instruction I have received from Ariel (the owner) and Therese. Both women are so skilled at creating specific programs to meet your needs. They are fantastic educators and empathetic professionals. They helped me regain flexibility and strength, identified unhealthy posture and muscle use patterns and assisted me in correcting the poor habits I had developed to cope with my pain. I feel so much stronger, I have felt a dramatic improvement in the symptoms from my injuries and my fibromyalgia pain has significantly decreased."
I think what I appreciate most is the way they structured my therapy to address specific issues while simultaneously teaching me how to improve the way my entire body moves. I have learned so much about how to use the correct muscles for different tasks and in doing so, I’ve strengthened weak muscles and taught my “overactive” ones how to relax (and therefore not cramp and cause more pain). I feel as though I’ve not only had great physical therapy, but I’ve also received a wonderful education on how to protect and care for my body while working to maximize what it can do.
Tiffany, the wonderful office manager and appointment scheduler, is so helpful and patient. The studio itself is warm and calming, both small enough to feel private and comfortable and large enough to have all of the equipment and gear you could want in a top Pilates studio. I enthusiastically recommend Pilates Santé and look forward to transitioning to working with their Pilates instructors". - Tristin Y.
"I love this place! I came here for an assessment and physical therapy for a back injury which was causing me tremendous pain. My first experience with Pilates Santé began with Tiffany who answered my call promptly and set up my first appointment within a week of my call. I then met with Ariel for an assessment and was very impressed by her knowledge of body mechanics, medical conditions and injuries. She answered all my questions and explained what could be done to help me. She developed a physical therapy plan for my individual needs which included home exercises. She also worked with me until I could do each exercise correctly. I've continued to work with Lara who is both empathetic and extremely knowledgeable on body mechanics. She explains what the focus of each exercise is and why it's important. Kendra is another instructor I've worked with who is patient and inspires confidence. She also teaches group lessons.The office is conveniently located with plenty of parking. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and personable. The programs are designed to fit your individual needs in a calm, clean, well-organized environment. What's not to love about this place?!" - Tina C.
"When I started going to Pilates Santé four months ago, I was in great neck and back pain along with facing a great deal of fear. I reluctantly starting working with Ariel. I was worried I was going to hurt myself more. As I shared my story and concern with Ariel, I found her to be very caring and attentive to my pain and fears. She worked with me slowly and methodically. With each exercise, she would carefully evaluate my position to make sure I was doing it correctly, and more importantly, to me at the time, make sure I wasn't hurting myself."
As we worked together, I saw her deep concern and patience with me as I struggled to do what she asked. As time went on, I began to really trust her instincts, her knowledge and expertise. With hard work and commitment on both of our parts, I saw myself getting stronger and more capable of things I haven't been able to do in two years. My pain level has decreased and my mobility has increased immensely. My family and friends are amazed at the progress I have made. I am so grateful for Ariel and would highly recommend working with her to anyone. She also has a wonderful support staff, Tiffany, who helps make appointments with ease. I feel so blessed to have found Pilates Santé! - Nancy R.
"Pilates Santé has been life changing for me. For several years my back has caused me discomfort. I've tried numerous treatments and all have only seemed to work for a month or so and then I'm back in pain, and sometimes debilitating pain. Since receiving treatment from the staff at Pilates Santé, my back pain has been significantly reduced. If I feel a bit of discomfort, they have taught me what to do to make it comfortable again. I wholeheartedly recommend Pilates Santé for treatment. Ariel and her staff are professional, knowledgeable and caring". - Patti W.
"After suffering from years of chronic pain and getting nowhere with numerous other physical therapists, I finally feel like I have my life back with a renewed level of comfort, strength and tolerance to physical activity. This is thanks to Ariel and her mastery of body mechanics and attention to detail!" - Lena M.
