About

Ming qualified with honours as a physiotherapist at the University of Melbourne, and has been working in the field of physiotherapy and Pilates for almost 20 years after following a passion for movement, exercise, dance and rehabilitation.

Having trained with both Polestar Pilates and the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (APPI), Ming has worked in Australia and abroad developing her interest in treating neck, back, pelvis and hip pain, posture and movement dysfunction.

Ming recently spent 5 years working in London in a clinical role that included working with the English National Ballet Company in their Pilates rehabilitation service, and as a presenter for APPI Pilates courses. Ming presented at the 2015 DanceUK Healthier Dancers conference on the role of Pilates in Strength and Conditioning for dancers.

In between working and attending courses, Ming enjoys travelling, nature, yoga, dance and meditation, all of which fuel her inspiration for a holistic approach to health, wellbeing and healing.

Pilates

Pilates is a form of exercise using various small props and large equipment designed to build strength, endurance and control whilst balancing body and mind. It was developed in the 1920’s by German Joseph Pilates to rehabilitate hospitalised prisoners of war, then expanded to the sporting and fitness arenas, and is now enjoyed by millions of people around the world.

Pilates called his method “Contrology” which is described in this excerpt from his book ‘Pilates’ Return to Life Through Contrology’:

“Contrology is complete control of body, mind and spirit. Through contrology, you first purposefully acquire complete control of your own body and then through proper repetition of its exercises you gradually and progressively acquire that natural rhythm and coordination associated with all your subconscious activities. This true rhythm and control is observed both in domestic pets and wild animals – without known exceptions.

Contrology develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit. In childhood, with rare exceptions, we all enjoy the benefits of natural and normal physical development. However, as we mature, we find ourselves living in bodies not always complementary to our ego. Our bodies are slumped, our shoulders are stooped, our eyes are hollow, our muscles are flabby and our vitality extremely lowered, if not vanished. This is but the natural result of not having uniformly developed all the muscles of our spine, trunk, arms, and legs in the course of pursuing our daily labors and office activities.”

Joseph created a vast number of exercises both on the Mat and using equipment he designed himself. Here he demonstrates the Side Bend exercise:

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapists are experts in the structure of the human body and its movement. They work with people of all ages to treat a broad range of health conditions including sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions as well as chronic health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, osteoarthritis and stroke. Physiotherapists are involved in the assessment, diagnosis, planning and management of patient care.

Initially your physiotherapist will take a detailed account of any relevant health history including past and present injuries. Any scans, x-rays and letters from other health professionals you may have can be brought in and discussed at your initial appointment. An assessment of your physical function will be made including strength, posture, range of motion and performance of various functional tasks.

Physiotherapy treatments can help correct any musculo-skeletal imbalances you may have including scoliosis, pelvic asymmetry, joint stiffness and tight muscles and fascia. A set of exercises will be prescribed and updated as you progress. Physiotherapists can refer you to a range of other health professionals as needed.

Physiotherapists can also provide online Telehealth consultations which have been shown in many cases to be as effective as in-person treatments.
