GYROKINESIS® Movement Classes

Group classes based on the GYROTONIC® method. GYROKINESIS® is a low impact full body workout with a focus on spine flexibility, breath work, strengthening of spinal muscles, and body awareness. Classes consist of constant movement. Classes can be adapted to suit anyone’s ability and include a series of slow rhythmic and undulating movements, which are coupled with calming breathing patterns. Classes are taught by Valerie Rolf von den Baumen, PT.


WHAT TO EXPECT

60-minute classes involving constant movement. This is the biggest difference from yoga. Positions are never held in place – body movement is fluid. Adaptable classes to suit different abilities. Exercises stimulate the body’s internal organs, while corresponding breathing patterns stimulate the nervous system, activating neural pathways, and oxygenating the blood. GYROKINESIS® is a whole body workout.

Aging Well with Osteoarthritis

An exercise and education program for people with osteoarthritis. Research has demonstrated that physiotherapy intervention can be as effective as the surgical route in managing Osteoarthritis (OA) related pain. Osteoarthritis occurs when there is more degeneration than regeneration of cartilage. This causes cartilage to thin, crack, and even disappear. Bones can then start to rub against each other. However, cartilage needs a certain amount of load to regenerate. This is why healthy loads need to be applied on joints for cartilage recovery. Therefore, osteoarthritis can better be described as temporary joint failure rather than permanent join change.


WHAT TO EXPECT

A 6-week program with expert knowledge to help empower you to take action in your life in order to remain active and well. Included is an analysis of your physical capacity at both the beginning and at the completion of your program, in order to ensure meaningful gains by the end of the program. Expect to be equipped with scientifically researched tools to help you manage your OA symptoms even beyond the 6-week program, through the following: Functional, weight-bearing exercise that focuses on strengthening the thigh and hip muscle, flexibility exercises that increases range of motion (hips, knees and ankles) to ensure the best possible lower limb alignment, and aerobic training to enhance circulation and combat the various risk factors associated with OA.

SMAS - Facial Sculpting


The face itself is built upon a complex structure. It has many layers, including: the bony structure, deep muscles (for chewing), deep fascia, and finally the SMAS. SMAS is short for “superficial muscular aponeurotic system.” Simply put, this is a fibrous network that connects the facial muscles to the skin, and its purpose is to transmit, distribute, and amplify the activity of all facial muscles.

This kind of facial sculpting massage targets the SMAS, and the muscles of the face and neck. Sessions aim to relax the neck muscles, improve lymphatic drainage from the face, relax overall facial features, stimulate the skin, and ultimately result in facial lifting.

SMAS – Facial sculpting massage helps with the following:

  • Reduction of expression lines
  • Reduction of puffiness and bruising under the eyes
  • Making skin healthy and more radiant
  • Minimizing loose skin around the chin and neck
  • Active lifting of the eyelids, forehead and the area between the eyebrows
  • Lengthening of the neck

You will notice improvements after your first facial sculpting massage. However, it takes about 8-10 sessions to gain significant results in areas of concern.

You can also enjoy a facial sculpting massage on a more occasional basis for the purpose of relaxing and in order to refresh skin tone
