These movements naturally contract the pelvic floor muscles and are used in a way that gets the pelvic floor firing better than traditional “Kegel” exercises. Once our clients understand how to do the movements they are hooked up to 4 channel wireless EMG (electromyography) sensors to monitor the pelvic floor muscles as well as the other muscle groups used to get the pelvic floor firing. Each of the ten Pfilates movements are recorded with video synchronized to the EMG record so we can determine which…
