Interested in how whole-person therapy can expand your practice offerings?
As an evidence-based practitioner, I firmly believe in working with a person as a whole.
We aren't just the physical body with its structures, functions, abilities. We must also consider our psychological mind - our values, our emotions, and how they interplay with hormones. Then we factor in environmental and social influences that shape who were are, what we do in our day, and how we live our lives.

Lindsey made me feel so comfortable. I was never embarrassed to talk about my pelvic health symptoms with her. She was able to pin-point areas to work on, and assisted me in making attainable goals to lessen symptoms. She is flexible for appointment times and even offered to see me in my home if that would be more comfortable. I always left my appointment feeling up-lifted and empowered that I was in control of the changes I wanted to see in my body functions. Thank you Lindsey for your professionalism, passion, and education for pelvic health.Nikkita Ponoka
Just about 3 years ago I had a miscarriage that basically didn’t heal and led to continuous bleeding. I spent the next year and a half going through different options to help. In the end, I the only option left was a hysterectomy. I was told about Lindsey and what she did. The first visit had me hooked. I was still pretty fresh out of surgery and just did a little at a time. I had no muscles in my lower abdomen. Lindsey showed me how to build them from the inside out. I was starting to feel great so I started to push a little harder and harder. The best part was no more leaking. Four months past my surgery, I learned that I had a hernia. I was lucky that it wasn’t completely debilitating as I had to wait a couple months before surgery. I saw a surgeon and we planned the hernia operation . Meanwhile, I just kept doing the exercises that I was given and slowly making my way back to the gym just moving as much as I could. I went for my next pre -op appointment 6 months after the hysterectomy. To my surprise, there was no hernia. The surgeon couldn’t believe it was gone. Neither could I. I started to push my exercise a little harder and kept doing Lindsey’s exercises. Christmas came and I became a little slack in all my exercises. The leaking also came back. I knew I needed to start at the beginning of Lindsey’s exercises. This time, it didn’t take long to rebuild those muscles. Like everything, I get slack and the leaking starts. I then go back to the beginning and everything gets better. I’m definitely not perfect in doing them everyday and when those symptoms come back, I start over. I’m in a pretty good groove at the moment, but I’m sure I will forget again. I will just remember to start over . Consistency is key for almost everything in life, but especially this.Amanda
During my second pregnancy, I developed acute hip pain, making it very difficult to walk, work and to care for my toddler. Having heard from other women that this is a common symptom in pregnancy, I resigned myself to live with it for the next 5 months. Thankfully, a colleague recommended that I see a Pelvic Health Specialist for this pain. I contacted Lindsay at E-Motion Therapy, and after one treatment, my pain was gone. Not only that, but I was provided with exercises I could do on my own as well as strategies to support my birthing experience. Lindsey’s open, compassionate and professional approach put me at ease during each of our sessions. I can’t speak highly enough of the services provided by E-Motion Therapy, as my friends and family can attest to.Jenny Camrose
I had been feeling off for close to a year. I was uncomfortable and in pain for most of that time, had gone to doctors appointments to try to get some answers to help, with no results. I booked an appointment with Lindsey, at E-motion Therapy. With the techniques she showed me, I did a few simple breathing techniques a few times a day. I was so surprised that there was such a noticeable difference in as little as two weeks, just from the breathing. At the most I was doing 85% breathing with 15% stretches (that’s being generous to myself), and everything went back to normal. It is unbelievable that in such a short time, all that pain could go away, and I could function normally again.Tiffany Ponoka
I have been wearing a pessary for about two years and have gone to physiotherapy. However, the therapy involved using only small internal muscles and I gave up after three months because I did not see any improvement. Recently my leakage became worse, internal organs dropped more and my pessary was not fitting. My doctor recommended E-Motion Therapy and reluctantly out of desperation , I decided to try it. Well, Lindsey taught me exercises where I could feel my muscles moving and in several weeks I could see improvement! I went from having the urge to pee and having an accident thirty seconds later to being able to get to the house, get out of my big work boots and Carhart coveralls and to the bathroom without a dribble! What a relief! No Depends for me! Lindsey also taught me how to incorporate the breathing and muscle contractions into my everyday activities. I recommend her clinic to anyone with pelvic floor problems. It is working for this 69 year old farmer!"Betty"
