I started to go to Joan Buna, at Health 4 Life Pilates and Chiropractic, June 2013 after having abdominal surgery for colon cancer in June 2012. I had been swimming and doing aerobics for exercise but wanted something more controlled to strengthen my core.
Joan has been extremely professional and is very knowledgeable. Joan continues to go to workshops to increase her vast knowledge about Pilates and how the human body works. In four years she has not repeated the same exercise and always comes up with a new way to get the correct muscle doing its job. I did yoga somewhere else for a year and a half and it was the same class every time. Joan has corrected my posture as well as helping with pain in my shoulders. I do a lot of walking and we are working on improving my foot placement. Joan has helped me find muscles that I didn't even know I have!
My massage therapist has certainly noticed how different my legs and arms are since doing Pilates twice a week and seeing Joan for a private session once a week.
I also see Joan's husband, Michael Buna, as he is the chiropractor in the same location. They make a perfect combination for an optimum improvement, enabling me to have as much of a pain free body as possible.
