What is Holistic Pelvic Care?

Many women are starting to recognize the amazing benefits of Holistic Pelvic Care ™ and other forms of pelvic floor physical therapy. Holistic Pelvic Care ™ (or HPC) created and pioneered by Portland local, Tami Kent, can improve a wide variety of symptoms as well as increase vitality and flexibility into your day to day life.

The big difference in HPC from traditional physical therapy is that it combines the physical treatment with energetic work, an often unacknowledged component of women’s pelvic health issues. This area of the body for women innately has a connection to the spiritual realm. The pelvic bowl is where women experience life and death, pleasure and pain, strength and weakness. There are many life experiences that can cause women to disconnect from, feel angry towards, or distrust their own pelvic bowls. The goal of HPC therapy is to shift the physical and energetic patterns that the body is holding in a dysfunctional way that is leading to symptoms.

Pelvic pain is one of the biggest complaints that can bring a woman in to the clinic inquiring about pelvic floor treatment. There are various reasons that women can have pelvic pain. If there is a history of frequent or heavy menstrual bleeding, trauma, or hormonal imbalances; the body may respond by holding tension in the muscles of the pelvic bowl. HPC can be a great piece of the treatment plan to address the muscular imbalance as well as the emotions associated with ongoing pain. It is also a way to reconnect with a part of the body that has been disconnected from.

Another added benefit of treating and addressing imbalances in the pelvic bowl, is that many women experience an increase in sexual vitality. Healing the body on both the physical and emotional plane can invite a renewed relationship to this sacred area of the body. When women are able to inhabit their pelvic bowl fully, they can honor and enjoy sexual expression and intimacy on a deeper level.

Holistic Pelvic Care ™ can help women find balance, stability, and strength in the pelvic floor muscles.
