Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) is a precise, thorough examination and treatment of the body’s soft tissues using regionally oriented protocols that are taught in a step-by-step process. NMT is highly effective for clients who present with chronic pain and is often successful in reducing or even eliminating longstanding painful conditions. Some of the techniques can also be applied to acute injuries and for post-surgical care; many help to improve performance in sport or dance and to prevent injuries due to these activities.

Pilates' system can be modified in range of difficulty from beginner to advanced or to any other level.
