Holistic Pelvic Care
Holistic Pelvic Care™ is a gentle form of internal pelvic floor bodywork and intra-vaginal massage which helps to shift the physical, emotional and energetic patterns that the body is holding in a dysfunctional way. It was pioneered by Tami Kent, a women’s health therapist & a holistic women’s healthcare visionary.
A woman’s pelvic bowl is her root, the centre of her being, the centre of her creativity and self-expression. It 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 emotional component is often an unacknowledged component of women’s pelvic health issues.
Traditional cultures around the world recognise a woman's womb and pelvic bowl to house the deep wisdom and intelligence we need to bring balance in times of need. It is our own sacred medicine. By connecting back to the root, a woman finds clearer direction and becomes more aligned with her highest self.
The pelvis, or "womb-space" is an energetically and emotionally receptive core area of our bodies, as women. Not only do we hold our own personal stories here, we hold the stories of our sisters, our mothers, and our cultural and ancestral heritage from women before us. To enter into the "womb-space" and invite a healing intention is to heal not only your own personal story, but also everyone who came before you. In doing this, you are also clearing your womb-space for all those you gestate and birth in your own lifetime.
