Introducing Pilates Passion with Anne Marie McNabb

Pilates is a mind, body, spirit discipline that creates whole body health, improved endurance, flexibility, balance and a strong core. It produces long, lean flexible muscle, which better supports the joints and bones of the body, while increasing range of motion. Pilates helps give physical relief from back, neck and joint pain. In developing core strength by using the deep back muscles, abdomen and pelvic floor, Pilates creates a strong supple spine, better posture and efficient movement patterns.

Doing Pilates awakens thousands of otherwise dormant brain cells, which has been proven to reduce dementia and depression. At Pilates Passion, we have created a nurturing, supportive and non-competitive environment while helping clients rediscover their own body. Even if you follow no other instructions, learn to breath correctly. The breath represents awareness, spirit, and life force and through the practice of Pilates, we create a meditational moment. If you are not breathing, you are not alive!

Life throws us many curve balls, but it’s what you choose to do with them that matters. You may not have chosen the injury, illness, death or other difficult situation in your life, but you can choose what to do with it! Take control and find your balance once again.

Genetic Testing

Why is MTHFR Genotyping Important?
Certain mutations in the gene coding for MTHFR produce an enzyme that has reduced ability to process B12 and folic acid. Inadequate amounts of B12 and folic acid can lead to elevated levels of homocysteine (a.k.a. hyperhomocysteinemia), which increases risk of illness. Adequate or optimal levels of B12 and folic acid aid with detoxification, hormone balancing, energy production, sleep, mood, and brain function. Our special MTHF injection done at our office is made to help those with the MTHFR gene mutation.

2) Pathway Genomics
We also offer state of the art genetic testing. Genetic testing is a growing field and can provide a great deal of valuable insight into an individual’s genetic susceptibility to certain illnesses. Genetic typing can even provide information regarding the ideal diet for your genetics, and for cardiovascular health.

STRESS TESTS: Adrenal Function & Neurotransmitters

Cortiol testing:
Using a salivary cortisol test, we can measure the health of the
adrenal glands by measuring levels over the entire day. Four saliva
samples are collected morning, noon, evening, and night to establish
cortisol production over time. We can fix your cirdadian rhythm, burn out
and sleep concerns.

Neurotransmitter testing:
Using a urine test from Neurosciences, we measure levels of neurotransmitters
produced which have an impact on mood, brain function, immune health, melatonin production, and adrenal
gland health. Seratonin, dopamine, adrenaline, noradrenaline, PEA, histamine, GABA and glutamate will all
be included in this panel.

Vitamin C injectable – new!

Ascorbic acid or vitamin C is beneficial in many ways including improved immune health, endurance, and skin radiance. Vitamin C plays an important role in collagen production and supplementation helps to improve skin elasticity and to diminish wrinkles.

Dexpanthenol, otherwise known as B5 participates in a wide array of key biological roles that assistant in appetite reduction, insulin regulation, and to improve cholesterol profiles. B5 also helps to reduce acne and to improve wound healing. And in terms of stress, B5 is a must as it helps to improve adrenal function.
