Countless times while working with my pelvic dysfunction patients, I have witnessed that while releasing their fascial restrictions vaginally, the patient’s jaw will be moving ever so slightly from side to side, presumably shifting to find it’s new home and mirror it’s counterpart. Of course, I point out what I see so that my client […]

The Intimate Relationship Between Your Gut Health and Pelvic Floor

One topic that has continued to fascinate me, and an area that I often work on with my patients, is the relationship between the gut and the pelvic floor. In very simple terms, your gut health and pelvic health are intimately connected and if you’re paying attention to one, it’s important and supportive to look […]
