What is Holistic Pelvic Care?
A blend of intra-vaginal massage & energy reading of the pelvic bowl ~ physical & energetic tools to evaluate, restore balance and to enhance vibrant flow in pelvic bowl. Helping us to understand core energy patterns and how a woman may inhabit her pelvic space and occupy her feminine landscape. The pelvic bowl is the area between the mound of Venus, the tip of the left hip, the sacrum and the tip of the right hip.
This is sacred space within, the home of Divine Feminine/Masculine energies & the yoni (Sanskrit for the inner reproductive organs, including the labia, vulva, vagina, cervix, womb, fallopian tubes & ovaries). This is the creative/procreative area within our bodies and yet for many women, there is a sense of disconnection. Cultivating presence in the root means that it can be used as a guide to daily living.
In perimenopause & menopause, we are at our last major transition in life ~ as we move from oestrogen driven cycles into no bleeds. Hormonal shifts and drops can cause hot flushes, anxiety, insomnia & changes to the vaginal canal labia & libido.
HPC is the medicine for which we yearn; the conduit for allowing us to begin to listen to this place and drink up her medicine. A gloved, lubricated index finger is gently inserted, with no agenda, other than to act as guide, a focus point for our awareness. On a physical level we evaluate muscular contraction & release and mapping of the pelvic floor muscles. Trigger point work, myofascial release work (MFR) are used to address pelvic dysfunction such as prolapse, pelvic pain, pelvic imbalance & congestion. Restoring balance helps to create optimum (reproductive) health
On an energetic level are you present in this space? We look at the core energy patterns within the bowl ~ scarcity, lack of, too much, not enough, distrust of the masculine/feminine, ancestral lineage, our ability to be able to create and to bring this to fruition. This is where we hold core wounding and emotional scars. Past “events” can sit as a signature of our life experience, causing poor energy flow. By breath, awareness, intention, presence & imagery, we can start to shift these patterns, helping to transform the bowl into a vibrant space of creation & manifestation, whilst working on the physical tension patterns. We consider how we can care for our yoni’s in this next phase of life. Herbs, supplements might support this transition.
