Helping women overcome pain,
discomfort and pelvic dysfunctions
Regardless of your age you may be experiencing pelvic dysfunction relating to past pregnancies, labor, or even accidents involving the pelvis.
During pregnancy movement of the rib cage and organs to allow room for a growing fetus and movement of the pelvis (e.g. sacrum, iliacus, SI joint, tailbone/coccyx, pubic bone) to allow for birth is quite extraordinary yet it can lead to decreased mobility dysfunctions and pain.
Movement of the pelvis can also occur as a result of a bad fall (falling off a horse) and/or accident (vehicle).
We hope everything goes back in place as it should but that's not always the case.
Through external bodywork, breathing techniques, and guided exercise, these dysfunctions can be greatly reduced or eliminated.
Even if you are not experiencing these issues after your first birth, not addressing bone alignment and tight muscles post-partum can lead to a greater chance for pelvic pain in subsequent pregnancies therefore it is best to have a postnatal care evaluation and bodywork session.
