Are you experiencing bladder leaking with sneeze, laugh, jumping, running or exercise?
Are you experiencing constipation, straining for bowel movement or have hemorrhoids?
Are you experiencing pain with sex or use of tampon?
Are you concerned you may have a hypertonic pelvic floor?
You can have these symptoms whether or not you have had a baby. For some of us, these symptoms can be mild and start when we are young, then get progressively worse as we get older.
What causes these symptoms?
Your postural alignment (it's not what you think)
Over using some muscles and under using other muscles that lead to gripping or hypertonic muscles
If you feel anxious, worried or stressed frequently these leads to overactive muscles (and other things)
If you are not taking enough time for sleeping, eating and digestion
How do you address these concerns?
We start with what I call an outside in approach. This means we look at your whole body for what may be driving the symptoms in the pelvic floor. By addressing the driver first, this frequently reduces the number of sessions needed for direct pelvic floor treatment.
Do I have to take my clothes off during a session?
No, you do not have to take your clothes off for every session. However, if you want specific answers to questions about your concerns, direct attention to the pelvic floor is the best way to answer your questions. If you want to better understanding of symptoms without direct pelvic floor care, "NO Problem". We can still learn a great deal about your body without going directly to your pelvic floor.
What is included in care and treatment?
Care and treatment is custom designed to your specific concerns after a though evaluation is performed. Elements frequently assessed
How well your joints move (restricted or move too much)
How flexible your muscles are
Movement patterns and positions ie, how you sit, stand, walk
How you breath (it's more important than you may think)
Elements frequently included in the first session
Gentle joint mobility
Manual care is given to release tight muscles
