Holistic Approach to Pelvic Health for Physical Therapists

Pregnancy and birth can cause injury to the body, impacting your client’s physical/mental health and well-being. Many pelvic health physical therapists will treat these injuries with traditional methods. These methods may work well for some, but they are not a successful plan of care for everyone. Most individuals benefit from and recover faster using a holistic approach.

Our holistic pelvic health approach to pregnancy and postpartum considers the care of the whole body. It utilizes traditional and holistic techniques that address the physical, emotional, and energetic levels of healing.

Holistic healing requires focusing on the whole body, not just the point of pain. Often the limitation to recovery is underlying conditions in the body and the mind. For example, tailbone pain is usually due to soft tissue tension. And this tension may be due to emotions or blocked energy flow. Our goal is to get to the root cause and treat it accordingly. 

The holistic pelvic health treatment courses teach you this approach. 

You will learn assessment and treatment techniques to achieve immediate relief for your clients and get them back to pain-free living!

Your Instructor – Lynn Schulte, PT

Lynn Schulte has been a Pelvic Health Physical Therapist for over 30 years and is the principal instructor/founder at the Institute for Birth Healing. She has been helping moms heal from all types of issues women experience after birth and is now teaching courses to physical therapists to share her expertise. After working with thousands of women, she discovered something they all had in common; the “Open Birthing Pattern.” The Open Birthing Pattern results from the pelvic bones and muscles not returning to normal positioning, mobility, and function after birth, creating pain, discomfort, and dysfunction. All of our courses focus on a holistic approach, assessments, and treatment techniques to relieve pain and discomfort and restore function.
