Hello and Welcome to DS Pilates and
Sports Massage run by Debbie Shopland.

Within this site you will find information regarding the work of Joseph Pilates and how his amazing combination of mind-body focused exercises can be brought to YOU, today! 

You will also find information on
sports massage and its positive effects on alleviating many postural, sporting related and medical issues.

I look forward to meeting you soon,

Kind Regards, Debbie.


QUESTION: Is your back aching from sitting at a desk all day, or do you want to develop more mobility in your spine to swing your golf club more effectively, or would you just like to have better posture and core strength?  If YES,
then please get in contact to see how I can help you achieve your goals!

With 19 years experience and a wealth of training I am able to offer tailor made 1:1 Pilates sessions in my home studio.

“its the mind itself that shapes the body”

Sports Massage Therapy

I first came across Pilates in 1993 whilst studying for my Human Movement Studies Degree.

I just absolutely loved the ethos behind Joseph Pilates' (which he called Controlology) work.


In 2000 I enrolled on a course with the Pilates Institute in London and went on to take modules in Pre and Post Natal Pilates exercise. 

 I have since broadened my Pilates knowledge by training in different aspects and styles of Pilates to include Fitness Pilates, and Healthy HITT Pilates with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute (a combination of cardio, strength and Pilates work)

Pilates is for everyone, whatever your age, body shape or fitness. Whether you're looking for a stronger, healthier back, a flatter and greater toned tummy, more flexible muscles, greater mobility in your joints, better posture, rehab from injury, or just general well-being, Pilates can help.

Pilates is ageless and genderless. Anyone can benefit from Pilates: the athlete, the office worker, those with physical challenges or injuries, the flexible and inflexible, the dancer, the boxer,
and the expectant mother and new mum.

At DSpilates your session is structured across various levels so you will always be comfortable
and your needs will be challenged but not over-stretched. You can expect to work through a series of exercises in a controlled manner, ensuring correct alignment and utilising the breath.
This is where the mind-body connection plays its part. 


Sports Massage is designed to help in the prevention and management of sports injuries, maintain function for optimum performance and provide relief from day to day stresses and strains.

DSsports massage uses massage for a variety of health related purposes to relieve pain, rehabilitate sports injuries, reduce inflammation and increase relaxation.  The term Massage Therapy encompasses many different and varied techniques used to manipulate the muscles and soft tissues of the body, helping to alleviate the pain, discomfort, stress and tension which builds up during illness or physical activity / inactivity or simply poor posture.


Remember, you don't have to be an athlete to enjoy the benefits of sports or deep tissue massage, it really is suitable for all and most people could do with a little bit of relaxation in their lives!

Typical conditions where Massage can help are: Headaches/Migraines
Back pain
Sprains and Strains
Poor Posture
Poor Flexibility
Sports or daily life injuries
General aches and pains.

If you would like to be pain free then please get in contact to talk through how I can help.

Debbie has trained with both the London School of Sports Massage AND the Northern Institute of Massage
And holds a BTEC qualification in Sports and Remedial Massage.


These sessions are
mat-work based using a variety of small piece equipment.

It wasn't until the late 1990s that training courses became available in the UK.

My most recent training has been with the prestigious Body Control Pilates.
