Physical Therapy - Pilates Rehabilitation & Fitness Studio
The Rose Center has a fully equipped Pilates rehabilitation & fitness studio and is offering mat classes, individual and group sessions. This method of exercise is effective for treating patients including those with scoliosis, osteoporosis, back injury and stroke patients, as well as anyone wanting to improve their overall fitness.

On the apparatus, springs and gravity are used to challenge and assist motion to achieve successful movement.
