Why Move with Us

Updated: Jul 7

Our Why:

We believe everyone should be able to access movement. We are driven to empower our clients to discover the freedom, strength, and joy movement brings while inspiring others to do the same.

How we do it:

1. Complete a thorough assessment and rule out serious injury.

This means spending time listening to your story. Reviewing past investigations, completing strength assessments and looking in-depth at your flexibility, control, and movement.

2. Reduce threat/ pain (education, soft tissue)

  • Soft tissue -> mobilization, hands-on therapy, loosening off tight muscles/fascia.

  • Education and reassurance with a clear plan to help you move forward.

3. Enhance Capacity

a. Reducing load (heel lifts, reduce WB, offload, change in training, avoidance- time limited)

b. Increasing capacity (strength, endurance, power)

c. Shifting load (coordination, movement skill)


Think about building capacity/movement as a skill – can we help you organize yourself in space to either shift load, or to be more efficient, or build tissue capacity?

An infographic The Mover's Journey  This image shows a diagram of the mover's journey, which is a process of moving from one place to another. The journey is divided into five steps:  Understand: This step is about understanding what you expect or need from the moving company. What are your priorities? What are your budget constraints? Reduce load: This step is about reducing the amount of stuff you need to move. Can you get rid of anything you don't need? Can you pack your belongings more efficiently? Shift load: This step is about finding ways to move your belongings more efficiently. Can you hire movers? Can you rent a truck? Increase capacity: This step is about improving your ability to move. Can you get stronger? Can you learn how to lift and carry heavy objects safely? Celebrate: This step is about celebrating your accomplishment of moving to a new place! The image also contains the text "MOVE Pilates". This is a reference to the fact that Pilates can help you improve your flexibility and strength, which can be helpful for moving.
