Holistic Pelvic Care™ 

Holistic Pelvic Care™ is a treatment that involves the tissues in the pelvic bowl: muscles, ligaments, tendons, bone, facia and reproductive organs. In traditional medicine, the pelvic bowl is considered our source of creativity, vitality, and wisdom. As "the root", it taps us into greater nourishment, and orients us to expansive and deeper healing. 

What Will Happen During the Treatment?
It is a hands on/ hands in treatment that either works internally, directly with the tissues of the pelvic bowl or energetically over the lower belly and sacrum. During your session, you will engage with your own sense of biological wisdom and the energetics of your reproductive organs, let go of structural tension using trigger point and myofascial release of the tissues in the pelvic bowl, and discontinue the habit of ignoring your own root. 

This treatment was created as an antidote to the lack of attention and care women receive to this part of our bodies.

In the modern medical model,  the pelvic bowl receives care only during times of dysfunction or to rule out pathology (annual exams, a biopsy for abnormal bleeding, etc.). Preventative pelvic care is virtually unheard of. Historically, many cultures engaged in practices to tend to this part of the body and the whole woman. These cultural practices were considered symbiotic in that : in protecting the health of women, they were also uplifting the health of the community and the health of their culture. These practices include vaginal steaming, Sobada and closing of the bones from Latin America, "Seven Locks" in Russia, the wearing of fajas, eating warm, spiced, root vegetables during the postpartum period, resting during the bleeding phase of the menstrual cycle, honoring women's intuition, and revering the cycle of birth and death and rebirth. For most women, disconnection from the pelvic bowl is the default. Holistic Pelvic Care™ is a way to engage with this part of your body, which governs your deepest sense of safety, in a supportive instead of intrusive way.

A  lack of understanding and care of the pelvic bowl has had many physical and emotional consequences for women.

Physically in can manifest as:

  • Pain during menses

  • Pain during sex

  • Inability to take deep breaths

  • Persistent weakness (lack of tone or inability to relax) the muscles of the pelvic bowl regardless of having given birth

  • persistent UTIs and incontinence

  • Pelvic organ prolapse

Emotionally it can manifest as

  • Lack of self confidence

  • Continued  betrayal of personal boundaries

  • Fight or flight being a a default nervous system state instead of a tool we use when we are in actual danger 

  • Trauma that refuses to be processed/PTSD

  • A lack of interest in life and disconnection from our creative spark

  • Boredom
