My name is Marie Daniels and I am a Chartered Physiotherapist, Pilates Instructor and a Mum, to very energetic and lively two year old twins in Maidenhead.
I have over 20 years professional experience during which time I developed a special interest in pregnancy related conditions with additional qualifications in the management of pelvic girdle pain, ante and post natal pilates and diastasis rectus (separated abdominal muscles).
Pilates contributed significantly to my own personal post natal recovery following a C section delivery of my twins and a significant abdominal separation. I know from experience, the advantage of having a strong, healthy pelvic floor both during and after pregnancy!
Inevitably, there are a lot of postural and physiological changes that occur during and after pregnancy. Pilates is a very safe and effective form of exercise which I integrate in my 1:1 treatment in addition to running an ante natal group class. This involves a series of matwork exercises targeting the deep posturally supporting muscles which help you:
- Reduce the aches and pains linked with pregnancy
- Improve your posture
- Reduce pelvic and back pain by strengthening your core
- Improve flexibility and efficiency of movement
- Give you the confidence to exercise safely
Patients come to me with a wide variety of conditions. I can help with:
- Pelvic girdle pain
- Pelvic floor strengthening
- Diastasis rectus separation
- C section post recovery advice
- Back pain and sciatica
- Neck pain and headaches
- General aches and pains linked to pregnancy and after
I combine massage, joint mobilisations and advice on posture, strengthening exercises and lifestyle adjustments with a positive approach to support a healthy and happy pregnancy.
While I have my own home based clinic in Maidenhead, I can also provide treatments in the comfort and convenience of your own home within Maidenhead, Marlow and Windsor areas which is especially helpful for those in the later stages of their pregnancy and for new mums struggling with mobility.
