Using your HSA or FSA for Pilates and Stretch Therapy
Great news if you have an FSA or HSA: you may be able to get reimbursed for Pilates and Stretch Therapy.
HSAs and FSAs are savings accounts for medical expenses. They allow you to set aside money, pre-tax, for items and services that maintain or improve your health. And now, working with me falls into that bracket.
I know how frustrating and complicated it can be to find out if you can use HSA or FSA funds for essential items that should qualify (like Pilates or Stretch Therapy). So I’m working with Truemed, a company devoted to driving HSA/FSA spending to products and services that are scientifically proven to improve metabolic health.
Visit Truemed now to see if you qualify for HSA/FSA spending on my sessions.
With just a few questions, Truemed determines if my services can help prevent or reverse a health condition. If so, they’ll send you a Letter of Medical Necessity (LMN), and then you can book your session with me as normal.
Save your receipts for all sessions and submit them along with your LMN to your HSA/FSA provider for reimbursement.
The fee for obtaining the LMN is $30, which will be added to your first bill from me after you receive it.
**Your LMN will be good for one year from the date of approval.**

Simplicity and consistency are key!
1️⃣ **Healthy Movement**: Incorporate consistent exercise into your routine. You want to focus on some form of strength work, mobility, and cardiovascular challenge that works for your body.
2️⃣ **Prioritize Your Well-being**: Remember, self-care is essential! Take time each day for activities that nourish your mind and body. From meditation to connecting with others, prioritize your well-being. What fills you up? Start there…
3️⃣ **Stay Active**: Take movement breaks, especially if you have a job that involves a lot of sitting. Embrace physical activity beyond structured exercise. Take short walks, stand up and stretch regularly, or try swimming – it all contributes to a healthy back.
4️⃣ **Ergonomics Matter**: Pay attention to your posture, both at work and home. You don’t have to invest a lot to adjust your settings to be back-friendly, but you might have to get creative!
5️⃣ **Rest & Recovery**: Whether you are working out really hard or not, focusing on rest & recovery are important for resetting your body and your nervous system. Sometimes we have to train and practice how to relax, especially if this doesn’t come naturally to you.
6️⃣ **Quality Sleep**: There’s so much info out there about “sleep hygiene” nowadays, but for most people making the choice to prioritize quality sleep is the most important step. It helps to opt for a supportive mattress and pillows to maintain spinal alignment while you rest.
7️⃣ **Hydration is Key**: Drink plenty of water daily to keep your spinal discs hydrated and cushioned as well as your fascia gliding.
8️⃣ **Mindful Nutrition**: Consume a balanced diet rich in nutrients that support bone and muscle health.
9️⃣ **Breath Work**: Practice deep breathing and breath work exercises to reduce stress and tension in your body, including your lower back.
🔟 **Stretch & Unwind**: End your day with gentle foam rolling or mobility work to release tension and enhance flexibility. You’ll also wake up less stiff and creaky in the morning.

Hey there, fellow back pain warriors! 👋 It's Pippa here, your dedicated practitioner, and today, I'm excited to delve into the incredible power of the mind-body connection in managing back pain. 💪
So, what exactly is the mind-body connection? 🤔 It's the remarkable link between our thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations. By understanding and harnessing this connection, we can significantly reduce and manage back pain more effectively than ever before. Here's how it works:
When we experience pain, it's not just a mere physical sensation; it can also be influenced by our mental state. Stress, anxiety, and negative emotions can exacerbate discomfort, while positive thoughts and relaxation can alleviate it. That's where Pilates & Stretch Therapy come into play! 🧘♀️
Pilates is a fantastic low-impact exercise method that focuses on strengthening the core, enhancing flexibility, and improving posture. It targets the very muscles supporting our backs, offering both immediate relief and long-term benefits. 🏋️♂️
Stretch therapy complements Pilates perfectly by promoting muscular balance, creating fascial glide in tight muscles, and increasing joint mobility. As you stretch, you release tension not only in your body but also in your mind, fostering that all-important mind-body connection. 🧘♂️
Imagine walking out of a session feeling revitalized, with your whole body feeling lighter and your spirits lifted. 😌 That's the beauty of this holistic approach — it leaves you feeling better instantly while laying the groundwork for a pain-free future. Investing in your health and prioritizing personalized attention and expertise is the key to achieving these incredible results.

As a skilled and experienced Pilates instructor in Sherman Oaks, California, I am passionate about helping individuals find relief from lower back pain while discovering the incredible benefits of Pilates. Today, we'll be exploring how Pilates, combined with the versatile Courageous Ball, can transform your Pilates practice and provide effective relief for your lower back discomfort. Whether you're new to Pilates or seeking to deepen your practice, this blog post will inspire you to embrace the power of the Courageous Ball and connect with me to experience the transformative effects of private Pilates lessons.
The Power of Pilates in Relieving Lower Back Pain:
Lower back pain is a common ailment that can be debilitating and impact your quality of life. Pilates offers a holistic approach to alleviate lower back pain by addressing its root causes, strengthening supportive muscles, and promoting proper alignment. Here's how Pilates can help you find relief:
1. Core Strengthening: Pilates focuses on strengthening the deep abdominal muscles that support the spine. By targeting these core muscles through precise movements and controlled breathing, you develop a strong and stable core, reducing stress on the lower back and promoting better posture.
2. Spinal Mobility and Flexibility: Pilates exercises gently lengthen and stretch the spine, improving its mobility and flexibility. Increased spinal mobility helps relieve tension and compression in the lower back, alleviating pain and discomfort.
3. Postural Alignment: Poor posture can contribute to lower back pain. Pilates emphasizes proper alignment, teaching you how to engage specific muscles to achieve optimal posture. By maintaining good alignment during exercises and in daily life, you can relieve strain on the lower back and prevent future pain.
4. Targeted Muscle Strengthening: Pilates exercises target not only the core muscles but also the muscles surrounding the lower back, such as the glutes and hip flexors. Strengthening these muscles helps stabilize the pelvis, providing support and reducing the strain on the lower back.
Introducing the Courageous Ball for Lower Back Relief:
Now, let's explore the powerful combination of Pilates and the Courageous Ball, specifically designed to alleviate lower back pain and enhance your Pilates practice. This versatile prop offers targeted support and stability, allowing you to engage deeper muscles while maintaining proper alignment. Here are some ways we can incorporate the Courageous Ball into our private Pilates sessions to relieve lower back pain:
1. Lumbar Support: Placing the Courageous Ball between your lower back and the floor during exercises like pelvic curls or bridging provides gentle support and promotes proper spinal alignment. This added support eases tension in the lower back and encourages a more effective and pain-free movement.
2. Core Activation: By incorporating the Courageous Ball into exercises like seated twists or side bends, we can engage the deep core muscles and the muscles surrounding the lower back. This increased activation helps stabilize and support the lower back, reducing discomfort and improving overall function.
3. Gentle Extension: Using the Courageous Ball for gentle back extensions, such as the swan or cat-cow exercises, can alleviate tightness and increase mobility in the spine. These movements promote healthy spinal extension and flexibility, relieving lower back pain and promoting a stronger back.
