Help for tailbone pain and pelvic floor dysfunction

Did you know it is possible to relieve tailbone pain and pelvic floor dysfunction naturally with a series of gentle movements?! There is a new model for pain relief and physical and mental health that is revolutionizing the way we think about natural health and healing.

Embodiment and Somatic movement can help your tail and pelvic floor regain normal and natural function. In this video, we look at how the immobility of your tailbone is often a source of pain. An immobile tailbone also makes it hard to have a healthy pelvic floor, heal from injury and gain true pelvic floor strength.

How to do Kegels without strain or tension

Tightly gripping your pelvic floor can interfere with the elasticity your pelvic floor really needs.

This video offers an exercise that lets you do a "soft" Kegel by finding the exact center of your pelvic floor and using a slow, smooth, sustained movement to lift instead of grip. Feel your entire pelvic floor lifting. Lower with the same smoothness and you will develop the balance your pelvic floor needs.

Balance your pelvis to stop pelvic floor dysfunction

You have multiple joints in your pelvis. Picturing these joints lets you know what is actually happening in your body. That is the first step to recovering the natural movements of healthy functioning.

The revolutionary science of somatic movement or embodiment uses the power of accurate imagery to free tension and holding in your body. You can feel more youthful and resilient.

The joints at the pelvis function to connect the two halves of the pelvis together and also to connect the pelvis to the rest of the body.

Somatic Embodiment and Yoga Therapy are new models for posture, movement and pelvic floor health that are revolutionizing the way we think about natural health and healing.
