The strong anti-inflammatory properties of ginger are excellent for dealing with muscle and arthritic pain. Ginger contains powerful anti-inflammatory substances called gingerols. These have been tested in various research of rheumatic diseases such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis where the participants reported a gradual reduction of pain, improving agility and movement and reduction in swelling when using ginger regularly.
The anti-inflammatory properties of ginger also promote digestion and soothe colic, relieve nausea and intestinal gas, and also used as a treatment for colds and other respiratory conditions.
As for turmeric, studies have shown that it is more effective at easing pain than aspirin and other similar chemical medications. It is a great help in the relieving of chronic arthritis and joint pain, as well as relieve symptoms of ulcerative colitis and osteoarthritis, which are two other inflammatory conditions.
One of the active ingredients in turmeric is called curcumin, and is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Indian Ayurvedic medicine to treat arthritis. It is claimed that turmeric reduces arthritis joint pain, inflammation, and stiffness related to arthritis.

Have you ever heard of machine Pilates? No? Most people haven’t and those that have seen it, think it looks like some medieval torture rack! But that can’t be further from the truth. The Reformer will ‘reform’ your life. When celebs say they “do Pilates” they are usually talking about the Reformer.
In basic terms, the Reformer is a machine, like a sliding bed attached to springs to provide a resistance. This adjustable resistance helps you to ‘reform’ muscular imbalances, tone, strengthen and lengthen the body without adding bulk, for a fantastic all over body workout, adding in challenge to your core against an unstable surface and increased tone for the arms and legs more than Matwork. We also add in the use of small Matwork equipment plus our great Reformer Jumpboards for a cardio workout!
The reformer works to lengthen whilst strengthening the muscles rather than building bulk. It therefore makes for an effective, non impact stretching and toning programme that is safe for the joints and favoured by Physiotherapists and Osteopaths.
Reformer is particularly useful for:
