Pelvic Taboo

Pelvic Floor related wellness is something that no one would have ever realized is even a career path - I know, strange. I work with women who have had all sorts of crazed information thrown their way. From the gynecologist who has told his patient that she has a "fiery, angry vagina" to the male urologist who referred my patient to a plastic surgeon because "no one will ever find THAT vagina attractive", my job is to clean up your mess. You're welcome.

Women have, through out history, always been degraded, less than and there to "please" our male counterpart. When it comes to our pelvic energy and our sacral + root chakras - we're energetically a MESS, unstable, insecure and forever not enough. But, when it comes to the medical field we have less than ideal options to turn to when it comes to our pelvic muscles, the confusion of why are we getting constipated all the time or worse - childbirth and a "baby belly" that everyone tells you there's nothing you can do about (until recently with NPR's article on diastasic recti getting fixed with one exercise 10 minutes a day which will be a whole other blog post). But, our pelvic muscles are important integrative part to our health and wellness, resolving prolapse, incontinence as well as low back pain.

Women's Pelvic Wellness - How can WE help?

Women's Pelvic Wellness - How can WE help?

Energetically, even just reading these words, we FEEL the mess that the outside world has given us and we've stored in our sacral centers. When we are told that our vaginas are not enough and when our beautiful and magnificent body part that makes us a woman is turned in to a slanderous word for men to use to call each other LESS than ( can I say, "don't be a pussy" ) it stores there and it manifests as pain, discomfort, urinary issues, constipation, pelvic prolapse and even more so self doubt and PAIN. 

So then fast forward to how I spend my day - I am a pelvic floor physical therapist. I work with women (and men) who have pelvic pain, discomfort with their pelvic centers, prolapse, diastasic recti and so much more. I spend my day talking about bowel movements, pelvic pain, vaginas, and tailbone pain. I talk more about childbirth than anyone else I know who's never had a baby... and it makes people uncomfortable.

This blog post is a call to action - talk to your girl friends, male friends and medical practitioners about what you need help with. Know that urinary incontinence, pelvic pain and prolapse are a common condition but they are NOT normal. Let's get you help. Let's break the taboo. And visualize the world where women get the medical help they need - with integral care for one another.

Your Hormones + Your Connecton to the World

For women, the cyclical nature of the moon, our lives, our menstrual cycles and the world are felt and discovered daily. Our connection with the cyclical nature of planet earth and the phases of the moon are some of the most beautiful ways to observe the human body and the connection to the energy and world around us.

Unfortunately, environmental toxins, the foods we eat and the medications we are prescribed can (and often do) influence the hormones and the beautiful cyclical connection that we have been blessed with. For a variety of reasons, our hormones can get “mixed up,” which may be damaging to our health and outlook on life.

Hormones are the integral part of the human body that connects us to the world as well as the cycles within our systems.

They are responsible for detoxification, emotions, processing and storing information, the menstrual cycle, getting and staying pregnant, stress response and so much more.

The world around us is full of things to disrupt these extremely gentle internal and external systems. Through lights that can interrupt our sleep cycles, to hormones that interrupt our optimal fertility (for both men and women) and cleaning products that can cause weight gain – our world can be full of hidden dangers.
