Location: Rosemont Wellness Center | Portland, Maine.
“You should do your kegels” is often the only advice we get when it comes to incontinence, pain and prolapse. There are some people who say “don’t do kegels, do squats.” It’s confusing and wait- I don’t even know how to do a kegel!”
If any of this sounds familiar, this is the workshop for you!
We will break it down into:
– what is the pelvic floor
-symptoms if it’s not working as well as it should be
-why kegels are NOT the answer
-how you can begin to gain control of your pelvic floor in everyday activities
-we’ll also discuss how what you’re eating & drinking can help support a healthy pelvis
This workshop is for anyone who is interested in learning more about a healthy pelvis. Babes in arms are welcome.
This workshop is FREE but space is limited, so please register ahead of time to secure your spot.
Presented by Allison Poole, MPT, PT, WHC owner of Koru Physical Therapy & Wellness. Allison is passionate about spreading the word of pelvic floor health and empowering women to gain control of their bodies and health.
When we are feeling great– vibrant and full of energy, we can assume that our hormones are in balance and our systems are humming along as they are meant to.
It is when we feel like our moods are all over the place, have low energy, brain fog and lost libido, we can assume that our hormones may be out of whack. This can be a sign that we are in [pre]menopause, or it may be a sign of something else.
- What exactly is [pre]menopause, what hormones and systems are involved and what might be symptoms of [pre]menopause.
- When does it begin and how long it may last
- How to minimize the symptoms of [pre]menopause and prepare for menopause
