The primary piece of equipment to be used is the reformer. The reformer has a system of resisted springs, straps, pulleys and bars and a gliding platform on which one can sit, kneel, stand, or lie on their front, back or side.
Your physiotherapist will also include mat exercises and will prepare and educate you on an individual home exercise program.
