Bi-Weekly Pelvic Floor Tip : Breathe deeply:   Whether you are a NEW MOM or a GRANDMOTHER, it’s never too late to restore the health of your pelvic system.

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…
