Entering the Temple: Bodywork for the Female Pelvic Floor

Advanced Professional Training for LMT's, Midwives, and other women's health practitioners

Additional INFO about the 60.5 hour certification on this page

IMMERSE yourself into this advanced professional therapeutic bodywork training that infuses practical bodywork skills with reverence and recognition of the layers of tension, fear, pain, and trauma that women often hold in the Root of the body--the Pelvic bowl.  We tend to this potent 'yoni-versal portal' with great care, upholding respectful boundaries, appropriate draping, and a strong practice of confidentiality. Working in diads and triads we focus on musculo-skeletal concerns and psycho-emotional issues that often compound the physical.

Here is a rare opportunity to join a circle of female massage therapists, midwives, or others licensed to offer internal bodywork, in a safe, respectful, nurturing environment. In Oregon and possibly other states, LMTs  with this advanced training may practice internal bodywork (OBMT Massage Board Rule (334-010-0029 Internal Cavity).

TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • Benefits of pelvic bodywork
  • Prevalence & Causes of Pelvic Dysfunction
  • Pelvic Anatomy and Physiology
  • Palpate the internal and external pelvic floor muscles, cervix, uterus
  • Learn to assess and treat pelvic muscle tension, prolapse, rectocele, cystocele, incontinence
  • Internal treatments for Pregnancy
  • Postnatal concerns
  • Psycho-emotional-social-spiritual impacts of pelvic issues
  • Trauma Tools
  • 6 hours of Ethics & Boundaries.
  • Marketing Considerations

NOTE:  This course does NOT include sexual touch, tantric practices, or sexologically related approaches

WHY:  Just like any muscle, pelvic floor muscles develop scar tissue, tension, spasms, imbalance. Many women (and men) suffer from hip, back, or pelvic pain, sciatica, or incontinence that stem from tension in obturator internus, piriformis, and levator ani muscles. This course will help you learn to offer internal bodywork with sensitivity, compassion, and skill.

WHO: Designed for dedicated professional women  interested in women's health bodywork, who have fulfilled the prerequisite requirements, and are willing to practice and receive internal pelvic floor bodywork with each other in a safe, private, and respectful environment.
