Holistic Pelvic Care™: What Is It?

The pelvic floor. It’s an area of the body that most people are generally aware exists, but often
in a vague and/or disconnected way. A place women are actually taught to ignore and/or be
ashamed of. An area of the body that “we just don’t talk about”. But like all of the rest of the
body’s soft tissue, the pelvic floor needs our attention and care. Kegels are often the only
recommendation given, as a way of strengthening the pelvic floor; however, there are many
times that the pelvic floor is actually overly tense or imbalanced, and what is first needed, before
strengthening, is release and balance.

Holistic Pelvic CareTM is one way to address the needs of the pelvic floor. HPCTM is a modality
created by Tami Lynn Kent which utilizes a combination of intravaginal massage, fascial
release, and trigger point work, along with breathwork, and/or visualization to unwind and
release the muscles and tissue of the pelvic floor and restore flow and balance.
When it comes to issues such as: pain with sex or orgasm, urinary incontinence, low libido, and
prolapse, among many other things, women have been largely ignored and told that their
concerns are “normal” or even that these things are all in their head or perhaps are only given a
surgical option. Holistic Pelvic CareTM is a holistic modality that acknowledges and addresses
the pelvic space physically, emotionally, and energetically.
