New Feature: Bi-weekly Tip

Written by
Bi-Weekly Pelvic Floor Tip : Practice good posture: Whether you are a new mom or a grandmother, we all need awareness of our posture. Particularly when you are pregnant, the chin begins to jut out, the shoulders round forward, and the knees tend to lock. This can cause muscle tension and pain in the lower back, neck and knees. Try this: Every time you walk through a door, bend your elbows to 90 degrees, lay one on each side of the door frame at shoulder height, and lean into it. You will feel a wonderful stretch across your chest (pectoral…

Walking, Running or Cycling with Prolapse or Incontinence

Written by
Many clients who have been runners, joggers or cyclers in the past, and who are experiencing symptoms of prolapse or incontinence, are concerned if they have to give up what are sometimes passionate forms of exercise. The answer is no.  As long as you are using the correct posture (Whole Woman) posture, I actually encourage you to continue with these excellent forms of exercise.  As discussed in previous articles, by practising the correct posture, you will be repositioning the bladder and uterus forward and up toward the lower front abdominal wall, and gravity will be working for you when you…
You or someone you know, may be struggling with symptoms of urinary incontinence. Our urinary tracts work day and night to rid our bodies of toxins and store the urine. My system of rehabilitation consists of a non-surgical approach which has helped women in many different countries around the world. The symptoms we experience are our bodies telling us we need to make changes.  Detoxification and Repair go hand in hand.  The cortisol that is released in response to the presence of these toxins is damaging to our connective tissue and need to be flushed out. If we respond to…

Posture and Breathing are Crucial to Pelvic Health

Written by
I keep seeing women who over the years haven't grasped the importance of posture and breathing in good pelvic health.  We all carry ourselves differently, and it can take alot of effort to break a lifelong habit.  Or it can be from soft furniture, car seats, slouching when seated etc.. At the same time, I have heard from and seen women who through attention to posture and breathing have been empowered to stabilize and even reverse prolapse and incontinence.  How we breath is strongly connected with how we stand, sit, walk, run etc.  A large percentage of women are found…

POPP - Pelvic Organ Prolapse & Posture

Written by
POPP - Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Posture (Being Comfortable in your own body)     All too often I have clients tell me their doctor has diagnosed them with a pelvic organ prolapse, which vary in type: uterine, cystocele, rectocele, enterocele or vaginal vault. What matters isn’t how it has been labeled, but knowing that there is nothing “wrong” with you, and your body isn’t dysfunctional, but that these are “symptoms” of some previous event in your life. Contrary to popular belief, there are ways to live with, manage and improve quality of life if you have an existing prolapse.…
