A Wonderful Addition: Internal Pelvic Floor Work
Last week I attended a most amazing workshop: Healing from Birth with Lynn Schulte, PT (www.intuitivehandspt.com). We spent three days learning about patterns that birth leaves in the body and how to unwind them. While these patterns serve to bring a baby through, they can lead to pelvic pain, backache, proplapse, incontinence and a host of other difficulties postpartum.
No matter how old your baby is, your body may still be “birthing” . It’s never too late to shift these patterns and relieve the resulting symptoms. If you have given birth by cesarean, or have developed diastasis recti, the belly really needs extra support and active manipulation to regain optimal health.
I am very excited to combine these skills of internal pelvic work, structural alignment and specific tissue release with The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® and I expect great results!
Speaking of learning opportunities, there is still room in my next Arvigo® Self-Care class April 20-22nd in Santa Fe, NM (counts towards continuing education for Midwives, Acupuncturists and Massage Therapists). Learn abdominal massage, vaginal steams and other forms of self care to support your own health and well-being. See my “upcoming classes” for more information.
