Girls, how accurate is this post?
Gentlemen, order now and make these holidays even more holly!
Severe tearing in two places that lead to an altered appearance of my vagina and vulva. Pain with intercourse that made penetration comfortable in only one position for over a year. Urine leakage with exercise. A three figure width diastasis recti. Prolapse. This laundry list of dysfunction used to be the story of my body. It is not my story any longer. I went to a pelvic floor physical therapist and it felt cold and overly medicalized. I felt vulnerable and like my body was a problem. I was shown how to do some kegels and I was told to return again the next week. I cried during my session and the therapist looked a me blankly and seemed uncomfortable. I left that office and didn’t ever return. I knew healing in my body would not come in this environment but at the time I didn’t know of any other paths. I became a pelvic floor physical therapist first and foremost so I could learn what I needed to learn to be able to heal myself. The healing I now offer others comes from a place of compassion and shared experience. With reverence and gratitude I respectfully draw from traditions and thinkers outside of the medical model, in addition to using some of the same techniques that worked to heal my issues. My medicine is homegrown, grown from my own journey. I have healed myself. I have been where you are and the call for something different is what lead me down this path. If that speaks to you, I would love to connect with you directly. I am now booking sessions for January 2018. #sandiegomom#socal#socalmoms#carlsbad#encinitas#motherhood#womenshealthpt#womenshealth#pelvicfloor#pelvicpt#pelvicpain#pregnancy#postpartumrecovery#birth#birthworker#doula#midwife#birthcenter#dpt
