The bones of our pelvis and hips are bowl-shaped and are structured for support stable weight distribution and for standing balanced and centred.
At the core of our bodies, the pelvic bowl carries our weight – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and ultimately the weight of our dreams and unrealised gifts to the world.
Dreams of who we were, are and can be are balanced or unbalanced, resonant or dissonant depending on what is going on for each of us. They are mirrored in the energy and life force held in our pelvic bowl.
We can greatly nurture, build and preserve the integrity, energy and life force of this area through Holistic Pelvic Care and Holistic Pelvic Energy.
Holistic Pelvic Care is a gentle form of internal pelvic floor bodywork and intra-vaginal massage that was pioneered by Tami Kent, a Portland-based women’s health physical therapist.
It addresses the physical aspects of pelvic floor imbalance and brings a deeper understanding of health and balance within and around the womb, which functions as our energetic and emotional receptive core.
Restoring balance to the pelvis and womb brings shifts in physiology such as hormones, blood and lymph flow as well as energetically by through changes in feelings and emotions.
This technique has to ability to bring our whole being into alignment, empowering women to inhabit their body fully, including spirit and soul.
Physically, it involves evaluation by internal intravaginal and external pelvic palpation, muscular contraction, release and mapping of the pelvic floor muscles.
Using trigger point and myofascial release work Sar addresses pelvic dysfunction, including prolapse, pain, imbalance and congestion.
A choice of water, oil based or organic coconut oil lubricant is used and the gloves are latex free.
HOLISTIC PELVIC ENERGY™
As an alternative to the internal nature of Holistic Pelvic Care, Sar also offers treatment through the technique of Holistic Pelvic Energy.
This approach brings together breath-based awareness, meditation, inner vision and presencing of what is active or alive in the body in order to tap into and harness the energy and life force flow in the pelvic bowl.
In this treatment you are able to remain fully clothed while Sar sits beside you and places her hands lightly on your belly. She will then assess the flow of energy in your body using gentle touch, palpation and guided conversation.
Using subtle pulsing, hands-on energy technique, visualisation and breathwork Sar will guide you to clear and replenish areas of diminished energy, stagnation, disconnection or restriction.
During this session your feelings and emotions may rise to be honoured, witnessed and released in a gentle and safe way.
You may find this work and healing to be deepening, your awareness heightens and creative flow increases, as you return home to yourself.
