Top Ballet Dancer and Pilates instructor Haruno Shannon
Haruno Shannon (Yamazaki)
Haruno is a top ballet dancer, trained by master teachers in classical ballet and contemporary dance at the School of American Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, Chautauqua Institute of Dance, Ballet School of Stamford, and Greenwich Ballet Academy. She has performed as a principal and prima ballerina in several productions all over the world.  She has lived in New York for most of her life and is a native English speaker, and recently moved back to Tokyo and joined the team at Tokyo Physio. Haruno began Pilates and yoga when she gained a strong interest in injury prevention and rehabilitation after sustaining injuries of her own. She became a certified Romana’s Pilates instructor at the True Pilates Studio in New York City under Romana Kryzanowska and Sari Meija-Santo and has been a sought after instructor in New York and more recently in Belgium, working in some of the world’s top pilates studios. We are very fortunate to have Haruno join us at Tokyo Physio, as of January 2015.

An ACL Game Changer

Working in a ski side physiotherapy clinic without a medical centre, you end up talking about ACLs (anterior cruciate ligament) a lot. In fact, once we are able to confirm the ACL rupture with clinical tests, I’ve got my speech  down-pat – press play on the tape recording (now mp3 player?) in my brain and spit out my blurb. “You have ruptured your ACL, blah blah blah, it does not have very good ability to heal, blah blah blah, doing your ACL is like getting pregnant – you’ve either done it or haven’t done it, it’s very rarely partially torn…blah blah blah……if you want to continue to do sports that involve twisting regularly, you will probably want to get reconstructive surgery, blah blah blah, the ligament can’t be torn any more so keep moving and weight-bearing, we want to avoid muscle wasting and arrest over-protecting….blah blah blah”. I’ve done it hundreds of times.
This is a public service announcement.
Although some health professionals might not agree with some parts of the blurb, orthopaedic knee specialists who we work closely with always endorse our methods.
