Your body needs some love! Keep well hydrated before and after your session for the best results, and try not to eat any heavy meals for the hour before your appointment.

Shane J Dyson believes in an open concept clinic, so our treatment tables aren’t enclosed by drapes. However, if you prefer a private session, no sweat! Make sure to let us know when booking your appointment.

Make sure to wear short, shorts (think 80s-style… well, ideally), and a sports bra, tank top or t-shirt. Oh, by the way, smelling so fresh and so clean wouldn’t hurt either.

Sessions with Shane J Dyson are one hour long and you may experience some pain during the treatment. But don’t worry, it’s a good pain and rest assured, you will experience results from your very first session.



The  assesment  is where it all starts! After a review of your history and goals, your initial session begins by assessing your body’s relationship with gravity to better understand your Alignment.

From this point, Shane J Dyson will start to work with your body to release tension and restore balance to the fascia structure and other soft tissues using manual therapy. As your Alignment changes, Shane J Dyson will also start to mobilize and unlock certain joints in order to improve your Articulation, especially around any problem areas.

This  is where together, Shane J Dyson and you develop a clear plan to solve any issues causing pain or locking up your performance and move you into Action (a.k.a. getting you back to doing what you love to do without any limitations).

Each patient case varies and Shane J Dyson can give you a more accurate timeframe following your initial appointment, but generally you’ll experience significant results as follows:

Minor: 3-5  Sessions
Major: 5-10 Sessions
Complex: 10-15+  Sessions



Good question. Make sure to discuss this with Shane J Dyson during your session to plan around a busy training schedule, otherwise, it’s always best to take the rest of the day off and let your body recover (you deserve it).


You may feel sore or slight discomfort after your session, but don’t worry, soreness for a couple days after treatment is completely normal. As your body gets used to the Shane J Dyson style of therapy and you come more consistently, you’ll feel less soreness following your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

At the initial treatment session, Shane J Dyson will take a detailed account of the problem, followed by a physical examination in order to make a clinical diagnosis.

The most appropriate treatment will be discussed and given at your first appointment. You will be advised on the estimated recovery time and self management for a speedy return to full fitness.

The physiotherapist plays a vital role in healing, pain relief and rehabilitation following fractures, surgery, muscle, tendon, ligament and joint injuries. The treatment aims to correct and stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes without the use of medication.

Education and advice on how to manage the condition are fundamental to successful treatment.

Pilates can be done purely on the floor in what is called a matwork class, or can be done with the use of equipment like a ball and foam roller, or large equipment like a reformer or cadillac. With matwork, your own body provides both resistance and assistance for Pilates exercises, affected only by gravity and your body weight. The large equipment however, with the use of springs, extend the range much farther, offering either additional resistance or support. Exercises can be easier or more challenging, as desired.

Equipment classes also differ to matwork classes in that they are usually kept to a maximum of 4 in a class, or is even better when it is one to one. In this way, the instructor can make sure you are always in the right position to be able to target the exact muscles required.

The difference between pilates and yoga is that pilates is based on fluid movements rather than held poses. The breathing in yoga is all through the nose, whereas in pilates, the inhalation is through the nose and the exhalation is through the mouth, which enables a better use and strengthening of the core. And lastly, pilates is not connected to spirituality or meditation, it is just a pure and safe method of exercise. However, yoga and pilates definately complement each other when done on a regular basis.

Pilates is all about strengthening the core which in turn supports the spine. People of any age with scoliosis can definately benefit from pilates as the stronger the core, the better the body will feel. Pilates is a combination of strength exercises and stretches, so the more one stretches, the less strain the body will feel.

Pilates can benefit people of all ages from teenagers through to 100!

Everybody is different and everyone learns at a different pace. We highly recommend you do at least 10 sessions on a one to one basis so you can feel confident on all the apparatus, and understand the technique in order to gain the most benefit during your workouts.

If you are pregnant and have done Pilates before, then this is one of the most perfect methods of exercise you can do. Your instructor will know which moves are important for you depending on which trimester you are in and will only put you in positions that are safe for you and your baby. Pilates will help ease your back pain, keep you toned and help your pelvic floor remain active which in turn will help during delivery and recovery. And as soon as the baby is 6 – 10 weeks old, you can return to Pilates to help get your body back in shape.

Yes of course men can do pilates. Men need pilates even more than women! Over time, men develop strong rectis abdominus muscles and their transverse abdominus suffer. These are the muscles necessary to support your back, which is why many men suffer with lower back pain as they get older and stop being as active as they used to be in their twenties and thirties. Pilates is also especially good for golfers and tennis players, which are both very one sided activities. Pilates increases flexibility and increases range of movement and helps to prevent injuries, especially in professional athletes like soccer and rugby players.

Machine pilates is very different to pilates on the mat, although there are many moves on the mat that are derived from Jospeh Pilates’ original machine moves. We recommend you definately do a few private sessions to get to know how the machines work, especially the safety of each one.
