JoAnn Kovaly, LMT, NCPT (Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher)

MA 60132961

JoAnn Kovaly changed careers in 1999, opening her business Body Shoppe Therapies to follow her passion: helping people achieve their fitness and health goals utilizing the classical Pilates method.

JoAnn is one of the original certified trainers with the Pilates Method Alliance. While working with Pilates clients, she realized that it is necessary to integrate bodywork with Pilates for good compensation free and pain free movement patterns.

Learn why just “releasing” the fascia and musculature is never enough

Learning and using many manual therapy techniques and research into the fascial tensegrity of the body has helped JoAnn develop The L.I.F.T. Method: Ligament Influenced Fascial Technique.

LIFT, a ligament stimulation technique, combines neuromuscular function testing, fascial length testing, ligament stimulation treatment and neuromuscular movement reeducation. The testing protocols allow the practitioner to locate the source of the pathology and treat quickly, effectively and painlessly with exact recordable results.

JoAnn loves teaching and sharing the L.I.F.T. approach to muscular and fascial function with clients and other practitioners. Watching therapists realize how effective this system is is like taking a child to the beach for the first time. Exhilarating!
