Sports vision and Growing Pains training at Back & Body 11/28/2011

If you have never heard of Sports Vision Therapy, think about this. My son was a varsity baseball player and was being scouted by several colleges. Unfortunately, he went through a major batting slump and growing pains (again). When I heard about pain reducing techniques at Back & Body from friends, I decided to take Harrison to Mary. She gave us 30 minutes of her time for FREE. Within 5 minutes, she took Harrison through some simple tasks and said ""You must not be hitting very well."" My son who went kicking and screaming, looked at me, and then replied ""How did you know?"" Simply stated, we went 3 times and did these eye muscle drills and balance drills. Harrison's batting average went from 196 to over 360. His leg and hip pain was gone and my son thinks I am a genius for taking him to her studio. Harrison is now playing baseball in college and had a choice between 3 colleges with full scholarships. Now my other three boys see Mary the ""sports guru."" She is warm, attentive and knows so much about the body, movement and sports efficiencies. I recommend Back & Body, especially Mary Kim-Garrity Lisa C--Hanover MA more

Professional and caring 11/28/2011

My wife and I both live in a lot of pain. As ex-athletes, we have had many injuries and that coupled with getting older has caused significant pain. Mary met with each of us from a groupon we bought. The results are incredible and we will never leave. I am back to running and my wife is a triathlete, once again. Who knew we could feel so good again! Thank you Mary. more

Pilates for a bad back 3/23/2009

The service was great. I started with two privates. Mary, the owner walked me through the process with my bad back. She was informative and gave me a sense of hope. I love the studios. Pros: It helps more

Recommended by this surgeon! 8/26/2008

As a ortho doc, I see alot of clients who have chronic pain. I have referred clients to Mary's studios for 9 years. The success rate is significant. The approach is simple, stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak muscles...creating balance in the body. Mary has consistently helped my patients throughout the years. Her team of instructors is second to none. Because she trained them all herself. I will take experience over a weekend certification...anyday. more

Pilates for my bad back 8/21/2008

I had such a nice experience here. I am shocked at the otherwise unkind comments. I have had such a bad back for years and found the studio via my doctor who recommended this studio. Classes are abundant, teachers are knowledgeable, all were trained by the owner. Pros: clean, well equipped, well trained staff Cons: it is a bit far from the cape but worth it. more

Personalized approach to Pilates on the equipment in a group class setting. 8/21/2008

I moved here from NYC 2 years ago and found the studio in Norwell. The owner matched me with a teacher who could teach me visually since I am a visual learner. Impressive. The instructor knew of my back pain before I even mentioned it. I have taken Pilates in CA and NY and had to take privates to work on the equipment. At this studio, you can do group classe on the mats, barrels, reformers and cadillacs. Impressive. Jenna Pros: teachers assigned to the client based on learning style. Unique Cons: this studio has had some strong neg feedback. i wonder if it is the competition more

Positive Experience 1/14/2008

In my short time at the Back & Body Studio my body has changed so much! I am diligent about my class schedule and the feedback and encouragement I get from the instructors is inspiring. The class setting is intimate, sometimes there is only three of us in class! Every once in a while you even get a 1on 1 session. I have learned so much about how my muscles work, and my posture. I leave feeling great. To those looking for personable, knowledgable, instructors, as well as a challenging workout, look no further. Pros: New and challenging excercies and equipment more

Pilates for Back & Neck Pain 9/19/2002

My husband has been working with the pros at this fully equipped studio and he is no longer a coach potatoe. He is now able to walk and play with our kids. He was 40 going on 75 and now he looks and acts younger than before our 4 kids. Thank you Mary. Maggie Pros: pain relief, professionals, make it easy more

Classical Pilates-Fully Equipped 6/15/2002

Pilates was not meant to be taught on just the mat. Most of us are too weak in our core so we strain to get through the matwork. Pilates is supposed to be taught on the machines until one is strong enough to do the same exercise on the mat. This place has all of the equipment and all of the toys that strengthen your core. I wish I lived in the south shore more

Pilates = no more pain! 5/23/2002

As a doctor who does surgery daily, I have a lot of neck pain and lower back pain. It was just a fact of life for me. A colleague of mine recommended pilates to relieve pain so I gave it a try. I felt different right away. The ""Bad Back"" Program has athletic trainers, pilates instructors and muscular therapists who work together to relieve chronic back pain. I am now a pilates advocate and I highly recommend this studio. The practitioners are professional and are great allies in the war against aging! Dr. Mark Garrity Pros: knowledgeable, reasonable, promises kept more

Los Angeles studio south of Boston! 5/22/2002

I have been taking pilates for years. In LA and in New York. When I moved to southern Mass, I gave up on the notion. Whalla! Back & Body Studio and owner Mary Kim-Garrity came into my life. I can't believe a fully equipped studio with an instructor who knows her stuff. She is a transplant from Boston. The schedule has more pilates mat/equipment classes than studios in New York. Five Star Workout Pros: variety, convenient, Experienced more
