Women’s Health: A New Potential

Friday, June 1st, 2012

For the past decade, I’ve been witnessing the future of women’s health in my office. The combination of physical medicine, from my background as a women’s health physical therapist, with the energy tools I’ve developed by working closely with the female body is a potent combination. I’ve had women travel from across the country to receive care with extraordinary results in addressing chronic issues and restoring vitality. The absence of holistic tools in mainstream medicine is most evident in women’s health where the true needs of the pelvic bowl are hardly addressed. This is illustrated by new reports of the pitfalls of pelvic surgery and the inadequacy of PaP exams for preventing or addressing pelvic issues.

What the pelvic bowl needs is good alignment in the organs and muscles, vibrant chi–or energy–and blood flow (which enhances cellular health and hormonal circulation), and a woman who is in touch with this powerful core energy to guide her life and give expression to her creative dreams. I am blessed to sit with women every week, assisting them in vibrant pelvic health and a relationship with the potential in their bodies. I am delighted to share this potential with other healers as I teach Holistic Pelvic Care to a growing list of dynamic providers. In France, women receive 10-20 state-sponsored sessions of pelvic physical therapy for basic postpartum care (see article).  I look forward to the day when women around the globe have access to physical & energetic medicine for cultivating a radiant pelvic bowl as routine care. Now that will be a sign of progress for the wild feminine!

A Celebration of the Wild Feminine

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

The world is shifting and the feminine is rising–yet how do we tap into the power of the feminine when all of our old structures and even the energy patterns in our bodies and daily lives are running with an absence of feminine energy? I’ve spent the past decade working with the female body and the pelvic bowl as a women’s health physical therapist and wrote Wild Feminine: Finding Power, Spirit & Joy in the Female Body to answer this question.

Reconnecting Spirit and Body
The essential task is to repair the connection between spirit and body and restore the flow of divine energy in our own creative centers. In restoring the flow of this abundant energy, not only are we more deeply nourished but we can direct this potential to reinvent our modern lives in soul-filled ways.

Wild Feminine Blessings
One of the most effective ways to repair and restore the body/spirit connection is to bless ourselves. Blessings align and enhance our energetic field and draw helpful energies to us. With this healing potential in mind, and to celebrate the publication/birth of the book today, I offer this first in a series of Wild Feminine blessings:

Take your creative dreams
Place them in the deeper currents,
Where your body meets spirit–
And they will become real.

Joy in the Bowl

Monday, November 30th, 2009

What do you hold in your bowl? The female body is powerful: what we hold in our center we manifest in our lives. What we hold in our center, we see reflected in the world. When a woman struggles, whether in regards to her relationships, her career, or her own sense of self, she often focuses on her worries or her pain. Her creative energy stagnates. If instead she will ask, “What do I want?” and moves towards this notion, she is more likely to plant seeds of hope that will take shape in her life. Holding joy in the bowl means focusing on desires and intentions rather than fears. While day to day living has its share of struggle, joy in the bowl always inspires the soul.
