My Scoliosis

Almost 2 years ago I needed big time help for both my left hip and my spine.  I was 9 months past a hip replacement that brought my mild scoliosis into the severe category.  I was in chronic pain, functioning poorly after a lifetime of active exercising.  Three top doctors agreed that spine surgery was necessary.  At that low point, I learned about Halle through a physical therapist.  Halle, she said, was in her view the top Pilates practitioner in the city.  And she had the expertise for complicated hip/spine issues.  The only issue was getting into her because she is in such high demand!  Thankfully, she worked me in for weekly sessions.

I am now out of my chronic pain as Halle has been re sculpting my body over these past 20 months.  My alignment is different due to her ‘magic’ touch.  I have been able to return to activities I could not do for the two prior years.  No way surgery is indicated now!  🙂

How Pilates helped

Not only is Halle very well trained in anatomy as a former dancer & a student of a Joseph Pilates disciple, but she is also very intuitive about what will work for me and what will not.  Plus she is one of the most caring and kind people I know.  I could not recommend her more highly!
