Pelvic  Floor Therapy

Pelvic floor dysfunction is common in millions of people, regardless of gender, and often goes untreated. These muscles require attention just as any other muscle in the body would if it were injured or impacted by chronic overuse or stress. Often, what is actually needed for the structures' full range of motion and functionality is the release and relaxation of these muscles, which can be treated and taught in therapy sessions. As rehab specialists, we can offer you the time and attention needed to physically address these imbalances with compassionate care and listening. 

These muscles and structures provide the following very important functions: 1) protection of the organs 2) control of urine and bowel

3) intimacy. Pelvic floor dysfunction may manifest as pelvic pain, low back pain, abdominal conditions, bladder and bowel issues, pelvic prolapse, and chronic or neural pain.

When treating pelvic floor dysfunction, we may use biofeedback for the pelvic floor muscles to increase your awareness and assess general tension of the pelvic floor tissues. We also provide internal and external manual therapy to assess and encourage proper range of motion and coordination of the pelvic floor. We help patients manage symptoms and provide education and training on posture, pressure management, and movement. We educate on bowel and bladder health and can provide health coaching for optimal nutrition, regulation of the nervous system, and life balance. 

Abdominal Massage 

I use a combination of Mayan Abdominal Massage, visceral manipulation techniques, and myofascial techniques for optimizing your digestive system, reproductive system, and to release anything that is inhibiting flow in your organ system.

Yoga Therapy & Embodiment Coaching 

It is imperative that we make time for the nervous system to release and process this natural, physiological response to stress. The average person in today's busy society has stored "trauma" or "traumas" in their physical or emotional body. The center of our body, our pelvic floor is intelligently shaped like a bowl, intricately layered with muscles and connective tissue in order to efficiently provide buoyancy, manage impact and stress, and effectively protect our organs. These muscles can be affected by major traumas such as childbirth or back injury, but are also made tense by "daily traumas." Daily traumas are the overuse and imbalances in a person's daily habits and routines, as well as emotional traumas such as a painful breakup, experiencing a loss, even critical parents in childhood. Emotional or psychological trauma may impact and limit a person's life beyond the necessary time to process that stress. 

 

I use a combination of Carl Rodger's inspired yoga therapy, TRE (traumatic response exercises), and somatic experiencing coaching to help clients get more in touch with the nervous system. I guide my clients through visualization, breath-work, and neuro-linguistic programming for a nervous system reset to support you. These sessions will provide you with the tools you need to continue therapy on your own. 

 

Alongside this work, we can focus on your creative potential. Are you in your dream career, work/life balance? Do you feel fully self-expressed in your relationships, healthy in your body and mind? I serve those who are ready to make a change, to live up to their full potential.

I help my clients: 

  • find their unique, authentic path and sense of purpose

  • create an abundance of intimacy, sexuality, and authenticity in their relationships

  • engage projects and problems with new supportive rhythms, structures, and flow to guide them

  • find and live an abundance mindset 

  • make life-changing decisions

  • find and commit to discipline, and overcome resistance and procrastination

  • reinvent their personality to live a happier personal life and/or take the next leap into a new business

  • get clear on their vision and create an individual, customized plan to get there
