Pregnancy & Childbirth Prep

Attention to the pelvis is crucial from the moment that you find out that you are pregnant. Your pelvic landscape will be changing rapidly. Your baby will move into the space that your pelvis provides. Together, we will work on creating maximum space for the baby in the pelvis by incorporating both the Spinning Babies ™ approach as well as gentle external and internal myofascial release.  This attention to the pelvis will help facilitate a healthy delivery.

 

Postpartum Recovery

Pelvic awareness should be an essential element of every woman’s postpartum course. Your body has been through a major change and your pelvic floor has been stretched to the maximum. Special attention must be paid to the pelvis at this time to promote healing after either vaginal or caesarean delivery. We want you to learn how to have pleasurable, enjoyable sex again, how to keep the vaginal mucosa lubricated, and how to strengthen the pelvic floor in order to avoid incontinence and prolapse.

Chemotherapy, radiation and surgeries wreak havoc on the body, mind and soul.  Our holistic approach at Wellest addresses challenges often overlooked in traditional treatment plans. We help patients with diagnoses of breast cancer, uterine cancer, endometrial cancer, ovarian cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer and colon cancer. While it may seem like the last thing to be thinking about, it is at this moment that releasing fascial restrictions and achieving optimal pelvic health can be of the utmost importance.

Advanced Bodywork

Myofascial Release (MFR):  Myofascial release focuses on treating the fascia and connective tissue in our bodies. Myofascial Release is a technique that involves sustained pressure into the connective tissue or fascial restriction in order to improve function, restore motion, and eliminate pain. Fascia is a connective tissue that surrounds and protects all structures of the body from muscles and bones to nerves, organs and bloods vessels. It appearance is similar to a spider’s web that continues from head to toe, connecting everything in the body, making this a holistic and whole body therapy. Normally, fascia should be relaxed and be able to move without restrictions. Restrictions in fascia can be created by trauma, autoimmune conditions or increased inflammation in the body, and surgical procedures. Restrictions in fascia can cause the fascia to shorten and solidify which causes a crushing force onto the structures and cause pain. It is important to note that fascial restrictions do not appear on standard imaging: MRI, CT scans, X-Rays. Myofascial release is a gentle, non–injurious hands on technique in which light continuous pressure is applied to the areas of restriction for as much time as is needed to allow for the softening of the restriction.  It is a skin on skin technique, without the use of oils, creams or other equipment.

Visceral Manipulation (VM): VM uses very specific placement of soft manual forces to encourage the normal mobility, motion, and tone of the viscera and their connective tissues. The gentle manipulations improve the functionality of the individual organs and enhance the entire body. Abdominal-fascial restrictions often develop due to abnormal scarring from surgeries, poor posture, or trauma. VM uses a detailed understanding of anatomy to improve tissue imbalance around the organs.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST): CST is a gentle, hands on treatment method used to enhance the craniosacral system which is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. A soft touch is used to release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the function of the central nervous system. It is especially effective in the treatment of jaw pain, migraines, neck pain and generalized stress related tension.
