As one of Southern California’s premier private health and wellness centers, UpRise Classical Pilates & Acupuncture in Santa Monica, CA, is committed to helping its clients change their bodies through the practices of Classical Pilates and Acupuncture. UpRise offers Pilates and Acupuncture programs that are individually tailored to physically transform each client into a more vibrant, healthier person. By customizing a Pilates and/or Acupuncture program to an individual, UpRise is able to target specific areas and health issues. Our services not only help sculpt the body into peak condition, but increase energy, beauty, and internal health. Our approach at UpRise is unique in that we are wholly focused on the combination of these two holistic modalities. The unique synergy of these two practices brings your health back into balance and helps you achieve renewed strength and vitality. Pilates and Acupuncture combined have restorative, transformative, and healing power that can change your life. In other words, once you begin one of our programs, you will look and feel amazing.
On its own, Pilates is a body conditioning method which focuses on the core of the body and creates a fusion of mind and body. It allows the body to move with efficiency, grace, and balance. Specialized equipment helps elongate muscles, and develop strength and flexibility, all with minimal impact on the joints. This allows people of all ages and body types to participate. Pilates is very effective for both the rehabilitation of physical injuries and the transformation of a healthy body into a stellar physique. Unlike other West Los Angeles Pilates studios, our Classical Pilates programs are led by instructors that are trained in the authentic Pilates method. We also use authentic, Gratz Pilates equipment that is unique to the area. The combination of high quality instruction and state of the art equipment increases the effectiveness of each Pilates session, and leads to a healthy, great-looking body in no time at all.
UpRise Classical Pilates offers a variety of fitness programs using private and semi-private Reformer or Mat sessions, as well as group Tower sessions. The Pilates Tower is a unique aspect of our studio. The Tower combines the muscle-strengthening benefits of springs with the core-strengthening benefits of the Pilates mat. The Tower promotes core strength, muscle toning, and mind/body coordination. Group Tower sessions are a great introduction into the incredible health benefits of Classical Pilates. Each one-hour session works your entire body, but certain time is indeed dedicated to specific body parts. The variety of our group Tower helps keep your health and fitness routine exciting and interesting, allowing you to visit multiple times in the week while remaining engaged.
Achieving Total Health
Our second discipline, Acupuncture, is the perfect complement to Pilates for achieving total health – inside and out. Acupuncture as a fitness tool significantly increases vitality and helps regenerate a fatigued body. Acupuncture also boosts metabolism and helps dissolve adipose tissue (fat). The UpRise Acupuncture programs intelligently integrate the wellness benefits of Acupuncture to augment the benefits of Pilates, whether the goal is rehabilitation or fitness. On its own, Acupuncture is a medical tool that treats and prevents illness by augmenting the body’s natural immune response. It increases endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine, which relieve pain and help with the recovery of motor functions. Acupuncture also stimulates the release of B-endorphins, which decrease inflammation in the body. Ultimately, Acupuncture helps coordinate and maximize the body’s own ability to heal illnesses and injury. After much scientific and clinical research, The World Health Organization posted an extensive list of medical conditions that can be effectively treated with Acupuncture.
Our experienced licensed acupuncturists are trained to provide treatment for both rehabilitation and relief from medical conditions such as back pain, depression, fatigue, insomnia, migraines, asthma and more. Many of these conditions are related to inflammation, stress, pain, women’s health, the digestive system, and the respiratory system. These are areas where Acupuncture is especially effective.
