Holistic Pelvic Care
“By attending to the physical and energetic alignment in your pelvic bowl, you can clarify and expand your creative potential so that this vibrant energy flows more freely in your body and all areas of your life.”
– Tami Lynn Kent, Author of ‘Wild Feminine’ and pioneer of the Holistic Pelvic Care [TM] method.
Holistic Pelvic Care [TM] is a combination of physical and energetic tools, developed by Tami Lynn Kent (Women’s Physical Therapist – USA), designed to assess and then restore balance to the pelvic space of the female body.
The pelvic floor muscles are accessed intravaginally and I use myofascial release, trigger point therapy, breath work, visualisation and massage to bring about physical, emotional and energetic balance to the pelvic bowl.
Pelvic Care [TM] can really help with:
- Painful intercourse
- Urinary leakage and prolapse
- Pelvic muscle weakness
- Pelvic pain
However you need not have physical symptoms to benefit from a Holistic Pelvic Care [TM] session. It also helps with:
- History of sexual abuse
- Gentle nourishment to the womb space to reduce frustration and grief during infertility
- Preparing for conception
- To help connect to your baby, womb and pelvis, and prepare your pelvic floor for birth – from 37 weeks (I do not touch the cervix or do a stretch and sweep to bring on labour!)
- Birth trauma
- Grief around pregnancy loss or termination
- Enhances creativity
- Or you simply want to connect more deeply with your pelvis, and/or root and sacral chakra.
“I went to see Virginia to receive help processing a traumatic birth. The [Holistic Pelvic Care] technique she used really allowed me release the tension I was holding in my body, particularly in my womb and I have continued to feel lighter and relaxed since my treatment. During the session I was able to release a lot of built up emotions, make peace with the experience I had and integrate the many lessons it taught me. Virginia made me feel comfortable and also really validated my feelings around my birth experience. I highly recommend Virginia to anyone who has lingering tension or trauma after birthing.” – Ashley
The pelvic massage is gentle and respectful, following the lead of the woman and her body. It should never hurt and the response of a woman’s body guides the depth and direction of the hands-on work. Though HPC is gentle, the effects are profound and women often notice a change with even one session, although at least three sessions are recommended to restore basic pelvic balance – length of treatment will depend on the severity and duration of symptoms.
I may also prescribe a blend of Australian Bush Flower Essences to enhance your emotional healing, if you so desire. ($20)
If you would like to experience a full ‘Wise Womban Healing’ session which combines HPC with Mizan Therapy* belly massage and Yoni Steaming, this deluxe treatment costs $260.
*excluding sacral / back massage
“I saw Virginia for an Holistic Pelvic Care session. I was a bit nervous and not sure what to expect going into the appointment, but Virginia was nothing but professional and re-assuring. I found the session itself very grounding and healing, I walked out feeling much lighter and brighter. Additionally, with Virginia’s guidance and after-care advice, I feel confident to continue implementing some of the healing practices she demonstrated at home.”
