I specialize in the core and connecting with your belly and hips as a Core Rehabilitation Specialist. We connect to that powerful center which is so often overlooked in our culture unless it’s for an image or to please others. Core rehab can help women of all ages, whether you’re a mother or not.
As a mother, your child may be 2, 5-years-old or even 30-years-old. Or maybe you had a hysterectomy, tummy tuck, or some other abdominal surgery many years ago. If you never got the education and support to heal after birth and/or surgery, you can NOW, if you’re willing to do the work. It’s never too late to heal.
My purpose and commitment is to address and offer the care and support
you need and seek.
With c-section recovery, we build your toolkit for recovery with the options of corrective exercise/breath work, scar tissue massage, bellydance therapy, and guided meditation/visualization. I work on the scar tissue and teach self-massage for that area to reduce and eliminate scar numbness, pain, digestive issues, and frequently, the disconnection you may feel from your belly.
We also address back and hip pain, often a result of c-section birth which is also major surgery for which there is no follow-up therapeutic recovery work generally offered. The massage and specialized deep core strengthening and reconnection of the muscles, tissues, and nerves is necessary for this rehabilitation.
We also address diastasis recti or the split in the belly muscles, pelvic stiffness, poor digestion including constipation, bloating, and incontinence. You’ll learn which exercises to avoid and specialized exercises to “knit” your core back together, as nature intended.
Women start to blossom when they can get in touch with and appreciate this area of their bodies instead of ignoring it and/or constantly judging it and feeling so much anxiety about the way they look. The core, belly, hips, spine, are the foundation of the body so being strong and healthy means that your posture and movement is free and strong and brings self-confidence and a sense of your own unique beauty.
Postpartum care and follow up to ensure the education and health of mothers is sorely needed in the United States and all over the world. It can plant the seeds for a healthy, thriving society with strong physical vigor and sound mental health.
In our culture, postpartum is traditionally considered to be the first 6-8 weeks after giving birth. In some traditional cultures, the mother and baby are secluded, sheltered, protected, and nurtured for the first 40 days postpartum with emphasis on the mother because her health is their foundation.
Modern society doesn’t offer this foundation but we can change that.
In India, the highly skilled traditional midwives, the “dai”, bathe, massage, and feed the mother ensuring that her womb and belly heal properly and that her full health and vigor is restored before she takes on the full-time job of childrearing. Learn more about the wisdom of the dai and the discrimination against them.
