Women’s whole-person pelvic health is the area of focus for E-Motion Therapy. Most women have a complicated relationship with their pelvic health and are often hesitant to seek help. We are comfortable asking the hard questions around topics that often carry a stigma or are just not talked about. Pelvic health issues can include:
- Urine & fecal leaking- do you pee a little when you laugh, cough, or with physical exertion? Is your underwear always stained?
- Painful sex
- Pelvic organ prolapse
- Pain or pressure in your pelvis, lower back, hips
- Weakness or separation of your abdominal muscles - Diastasis Recti Abdominus
Pelvic health becomes especially important for perinatal and postpartum care or in cases of chronic illness such as endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, vaginismus or many others.
Many people ask for a list of “Do’s & Don’ts”. More importantly, that Do or Don’t is HOW you are doing an activity or exercise.
At E-Motion Therapy we use what we have coined as a “ Whole Person Pelvic Health” approach. This means we will look at and address the:
- sensory, and
- environmental factors

Do I Need Pelvic Health Treatment?
Prenatal, postpartum (6 weeks or more), urinary & fecal incontinence, urgency or frequency, pain with intercourse, pelvic organ prolapse, pre & post abdominal surgeries, prenatal clients, postpartum clients, clients experiencing the onset or effects of menopause, pelvic pain of various types, and maternal mental health, females 18 years and older (will see teens if referred by a physician).
Pelvic health is the best possible functioning and management of the bladder, bowel, and reproductive / sexual organs. The pelvic floor and core muscles play a major role and are often a focus of assessment and treatment, as are learned behaviours associated with optimal function.
Many pelvic health issues are preventable and are very treatable. We can empower women to return to their daily activities with confidence and joy.
