Last weekend, I had the honor and privilege of studying Holistic Pelvic Care™ with an amazing force in women’s healthcare, Tami Kent, author of Wild Feminine. When I signed up for Tami’s course for healthcare practitioners, I tried to talk myself out of it. After all, I had completed more than my required continuing education hours for the year, and had spent quite a bit of money in the process of completing those hours. But, this course was with Tami Kent, one of my heroines of women’s healthcare, and I wrote the check, filled out the application, and registered.
Well, all I can say is I made the right decision. This work is amazing, and I am so honored to be using it with my patients to achieve their health goals and shed the issues they have been carrying with them, shed the issues that have been blocking their connection to themselves and the earth.
Holistic Pelvic Care™ blends structural rehabilitation and energetic balancing in the female pelvic bowl. By opening blocked energy and clearing long-held tension patterns, women gain access to the creative potential and native intelligence of their root chakra, lower dantien, or feminine energetic center.
The primary technique utilizes gentle inter-vaginal massage with restorative breath work to encourage relaxation and healing. By combining gentle fascial and trigger point release with energetic atunment to the muscles, organs and spaces of the pelvic bowl, we restore balance, enhance blood flow, and create new body awareness. Depending on a patient’s sensitivity and needs, external energetic healing may be indicated before internal work is performed.
This therapy is particularly suited for women with pelvic floor complaints such as urinary leakage, uterine prolapse, pelvic muscle weakness, pelvic pain, or pain with intercourse. It can be helpful in decreasing pelvic congestion which is often a contributor in conditions like dysmenorrhea, PMS, and infertility. Post-partum women find this therapy incredibly helpful in speeding recovery from childbirth.
Most women will only need between 3 and 6 treatment sessions for their symptoms to abate. By teaching self-care techniques, we then empower women to continue their own healing through a regular relationship with their root.
