Learn about Bälans Pilates

Welcome to Bälans Pilates Studio & Treatment Rooms, a peaceful and private Therapy Centre, within the thriving Perth Airport Business Park in Perth, Scotland. All our services are popular with both men and women and we can cater for those with mobility problems with our fully adjustable treatment couch, wheelchair access and accessible toilet facilities.

Started in 2005 Bälans offers a diverse but complimentary range of services from effective Massage Treatments, to Group Pilates Matwork classes as well as quality ‘one to one’ services.

Joakim, a Swedish born Australian came to the UK in 1998. A former Australian Army Reserve Commando, Bondi Beach Surf Life Saver and TA Physical Training Instructor, Joakim is a 2nd Generation Pilates Teacher and Sports Therapist. His clients include professional and elite sports people ranging from Polo, Dressage, Motor Racing, Hockey and the dance industry.

Joakim’s international background can be seen in the detail of the décor and techniques incorporated into treatments and Pilates sessions, and he continues to teach and travel internationally to maintain his ‘world citizenship’.

With attention to detail paramount, the Treatment Rooms offer a unique fusion of varied cultures and are adorned with little treasures brought back from overseas. The warmth of rich wood, soothing aromas and custom built furniture create a relaxing atmosphere. The natural interior colours were specially designed to support earthiness and help one find inner balance.

At Bälans you will find an exciting range of quality treatments performed by qualified, experienced staff.

For a touch of fun, all the signage within Bälans is in Joakim’s native tongue, Swedish, as is of course the name of the business which means ‘Balance’. This word was chosen with the intention of creating a space where everyone can refresh their connection with themselves and find a healthier, more balanced way of living.
