About Folkestone Physio and Pilates

me Hi, my name is Melanie Tillman.
 I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1978 from King's College Hospital London.I then spent many years working in Hospital practising general Physiotherapy varying from Out-patients to Intensive Care. I worked as a Specialist Paediatric Physiotherapist for  25 years.I have recently retired from Physiotherapy and now concentrate on my Pilates classes.
Having used Pilates myself for several years I developed a special interest in Pilates as a clinical tool and undertook specific courses in Paediatric Pilates for Physiotherapists.
This led me on to take the full Body Control Pilates training to enable me to become an Instructor.
Body Control Pilates is recognised as one of the leading training bodies of Pilates Teachers in the U.K. It was amongst the first to have it's training approved by the Register of Exercise Professionals.
I have also undertaken further training to become a Level 4 Specialist Instructor in Low Back Pain with Body Control entitling me to become a Back4Good Practitioner.
