Each Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy and Holistic Pelvic Care™ practitioner at our NW Portland clinic provides natural holistic medicine for women with pelvic floor complaints such as urinary leakage, uterine prolapse, pelvic muscle weakness, pelvic pain, or pain with intercourse. Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy and Holistic Pelvic Care™ can be helpful in decreasing pelvic congestion, which is often a contributor in conditions like dysmenorrhea (menstrual cramps), PMS, ovarian cysts and infertility. Post-partum women find this therapy incredibly helpful in speeding recovery from childbirth.
As your practitioner gently opens the blocked energy and clears the long-held tension patterns that have caused you pain, you gain access to the creative potential and native intelligence of your root chakra, otherwise known as the lower dan tien, or feminine energetic center.
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy and Holistic Pelvic Care™ blend structural rehabilitation and energetic balancing in the female pelvic bowl. The primary technique utilizes gentle inter-vaginal massage with restorative breath work to encourage relaxation and healing. By combining gentle fascial and trigger point release with energetic attunment to the muscles, organs and spaces of the pelvic bowl, we help restore balance and increase blood flow. Depending on a patient’s sensitivity and needs, external energetic healing may be indicated before internal work is performed.
Duration of treatment will vary based on the severity and chronicity of the symptoms. By teaching self-care techniques, our practitioners aim to empower women to continue their own healing through a regular relationship with their root.
