Pelvic Floor Therapy & Holistic Pelvic Care™ A Personalized Approach for You

Dr. Lisa Dickinson and Dr. Meghan Bennett, both are thought leaders in women’s pelvic floor and sexual health, and are passionate about helping women with their intimate healthcare needs.

Each doctor brings their specialized techniques to provide individual treatment options for a variety of hormonal, gyencological and women’s health conditions. Both doctors trained under and incorporate teachings and guidance from world renowned women’s health physical therapist and author, Tami Kent, who has developed and trademarked Holistic Pelvic Care™. This type of pelvic floor therapy supports you through guided meditation, breathing techniques and bringing awareness to your pelvic bowl.

The other type of Pelvic Floor Therapy is to bring awareness and healing to your pelvic floor through range of motion exercises, stretching and internal trigger point work. This therapy will support women who have concerns with incontinence and pelvic floor pain, including sciatica, piriformis syndrome and low back pain.

The intention of both types of pelvic floor therapy is to decrease pain and adhesions in the pelvic floor. When women bring their awareness, breath and develop and positive relationship with their pelvic bowl, they inherently begin to increase circulation, allow trigger points to relax and bring balance to the pelvis. When the muscles and bones of the pelvic floor are aligned, women move more freely, without restrictions. Women often feel more relaxed and experience improved sensation and increased strength in the muscles of their pelvic floor. Building a pain free and positive relationship with your pelvic bowl, will also help you balance your hormones, improve fertility, reduce PMS and move through the stages of your hormonal years with ease.

If you would like do learn more about your hormones, Dr. Meghan and Dr. Lisa have a series of classes they have developed. Check out their first two classes here. Stay tuned, more to come!

Dr. Meghan and Dr. Lisa work closely together to assess and suggest which pelvic floor options will be the best treatment option for you. Some patients know exactly what they want and others try out both. When the doctors notice the patient needs to have the balance with treatment approaches, they will honor you and support you to schedule what your body needs.

During the initial session, we will discuss the issues you would like to address. The doctor will ask you about your medical history and provide you with an introduction to your pelvic floor muscles and structures. Your pelvic floor muscles will then be evaluated intra-vaginally, assessing for trigger points and tension patterns.

Your Pelvic floor therapy will combine stretching, active and passive range of motion exercises, trigger point work and follow up exercises to increase balance and blood flow to the organs, vaginal tissue and muscles of the pelvic floor.

Your Holistic Pelvic Care ™ session will help you create a mind body connection with your pelvic bowl. It will consist of a guided meditation and restorative breath-work, to increase balance and blood flow to the organs, vaginal tissue and muscles of the pelvic bowl.

Follow-up sessions will begin with a reassessment and then focus primarily on treatment. The number of treatments suggested will depend upon the extent of your symptoms and how long you have been living with them. Five to seven sessions are typically recommended to restore healthy pelvic floor balance.
