Your Pelvic Floor

Our aim is to help you understand, strengthen and maintain a healthy pelvic floor. Whether you're dealing with specific issues or just want to enhance your overall wellness, you're in the right place!

WHAT IS THE PELVIC FLOOR?

The pelvic floor is a group of muscles that support the bladder, bowel and uterus. These muscles stretch like a hammock from the tailbone to the pubic bone. They play a crucial role in urinary and fecal incontinence, sexual function and stability of the core.

SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION

Good pelvic floor health improves muscle tone and blood flow, which can enhance sexual sensation and function, leading to more satisfying sexual experiences. Strengthening these muscles can also prevent pain during intercourse and improve overall sexual confidence and performance.

PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE

A strong pelvic floor provides essential support to the pelvic organs, helping to keep them in their correct positions and prevent prolapse. Regular pelvic floor exercises enhance muscle tone and elasticity, reducing the risk of organs like the bladder, uterus, and rectum descending into the vaginal area.

CORE STABILITY

Strong pelvic floor muscles are integral to core stability, as they work in conjunction with the abdominal and back muscles to support the spine and maintain proper posture. By enhancing pelvic floor health, you contribute to a more stable and balanced core, reducing the risk of back pain and improving overall body mechanics.
