Pelvic floor muscle assessment and treatment are just one of the many tools I use to support people with pelvic pain. I usually do not do an internal treatment to resolve long standing chronic pelvic pain on the first visit because I notice a huge difference in the pelvic floor muscles when I improve the pelvic bone structure first. Most treatments are 75% lying down receiving hands on therapy and 25% movement or re-training your body to integrate the fascial changes. Intuitive readings are incorporated into the hands-on portion of your session.
To open your akashic records we will center ourselves and then set the intention to connect to your soul’s wisdom using the method to open taught by the Akashic Alliance. You will only receive information that is relevant for right now, for your highest good, and with your permission.
Internal assessments are performed in a respectful way allowing patients to undress from the waist down in private. A sheet is covering the lower body until a gloved finger is used to assess the external and internal pelvic structures that may be causing pain or dysfunction. During the session, I maintain eye contact often to ensure trauma responses are avoided and patients feel safe and supported. The patient is in control of the ending of the session. Pain is avoided during treatments but may be experienced during the assessment portion as I learn your body. I may use different positions to impact the affected fascia and structures while working with the pelvic muscles, fascia and surrounding structures. I am a trauma informed practitioner and believe in always advocating for my patient’s voice to be heard during a session. Nothing is done without permission and consent. The patient guides the boundaries. I do my best to explain every technique before performing it.

At this time I only see female, trans male or non-binary people with genitalia of someone assigned female at birth.

Yes! I treat any and all genders for Intuitive PT services.

No. I do not use gym equipment for my therapy. I do help you figure out the most supportive exercises for you at the gym and I encourage body weight exercises in my sessions as homework.

I am a massage therapist by trade with a speciality in Trigger Points. I rarely offer soft tissue massage – it is only one tool in my toolbelt and I apply it occasionally. I do not offer an unclothed relaxing massage but highly recommend the esalen trained massage therapists at StillPoint Wellness Spa.
