My Book Has Been Published: Restoring The Pelvic Floor For Women

I am thrilled to announce that I published a book, Restoring The Pelvic Floor For Women


This book is for any woman who has avoided the trampoline or yoga class for fear of urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. If you have pelvic pain, dyspareunia, vaginismus, vestibulodynia, vulvodynia, lichen sclerosis, endometriosis, androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS), MRKH, or tailbone pain (coccydynia), this book is for you. If you suffer from constipation, urinary urgency, urinary frequency, or overactive bladder, this book is also for you.

This book quickly and easily teaches you how to manage conditions related to the pelvic floor, bladder, uterus, and bowel directly from a certified pelvic floor physical therapist who regularly treats women just like you in her clinic.

With a dash of humor I explain how to cure urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse using different types of Kegels. If you’re prone to urinary urgency, you’ll learn which foods to avoid. Constipated? I’ll show you how to solve it.

The pelvic floor muscles are a vital system of muscles that support the pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, and rectum). These muscles can be too weak, too tight, or have poor coordination that can lead to issues with urination, defecation, pelvic pain, and intercourse. The good news is that these issues are solvable with natural remedies. Furthermore, learn how a pelvic physical therapist in your area can provide additional one on one help and specific kinds of treatment to address women’s health issues.

Chapters include:

1. Introduction to the Pelvic Floor, Organs, Kegels and Women’s Health
2. Urinary Incontinence: Why Do I Pee When I Sneeze?
3. Urinary Frequency and Urgency: Why Do I Have to Pee Every Time I Turn Around?
4. Bladder Irritants: Why What You Eat and Drink Can Be Irritating
5. Pelvic Organ Prolapse: Why It Feels Like Your Organs are Falling Out of Your Body
6. Kegels, Pelvic Floor and Core Strengthening
7. Constipation
8. Pelvic Pain
9. The Importance of Breathing
10. To Infinity and Beyond: Thoughts on Women’s Health for the Future

If you are trying to find a natural way of curing common women’s health issues and avoid surgery, this book is for you. Find out how breathing, down training the pelvic floor, vaginal dilator training and specific pelvic exercises can help with pelvic pain. Pelvic floor exercise for beginners and more advanced kegel exercises for progression are demonstrated, and most importantly which exercises are most beneficial to women’s health.

Curious about kegel exercise products, such as which kegel balls for beginners are best? This book will explain that too.  I’ll also discuss which kegel trainer and pelvic floor strengthening devices for women are best to help you achieve your goals.

Chapter 6 discusses abs, core, and pelvic floor while chapter 8 helps you heal pelvic pain.

Chapters end with real world, anonymous examples of patients I have healed with the techniques found in this book.

If you have issues related to pelvic floor dysfunction, this pelvic floor book will teach you the pelvic floor therapy necessary to feel results.
