Dr. Pauline Haugen, DC – Pilates Instructor
Dr. Haugen was exposed to the benefits of Pilates when she opened her first practice in 2001. She was looking for a form of fitness that would strengthen all of the accessory muscles that are neglected with common forms of exercise, like running and weight lifting. After practicing Pilates for 1 year she noticed a significant increase in her core strength, flexibility and joint strength as well as a reduction of injury.
She began to refer her patients to a local Pilates Studio once they were tapered down on their treatment plans. She realized patients who were taking Pilates had less incidents of re injury and were able to wait 4 weeks in between their adjustments.
Dr. Haugen moved to Seattle, WA, in 2007 and decided to get certified in Pilates. She completed the Body Arts and Sciences Pilates course which is world renown. She currently specializes in Pilates injury rehabilitation at her current practice in Bellevue, WA.
Dr. Haugen’s Pilates team have been reaching out to local businesses to expose more people about the benefits of Pilates and chiropractic care. Classes are taught mornings and evenings and a doctor is also sent out to perform postural checks and screenings.
Dr. Pauline Haugen is also a Bellevue Chiropractor.
