The Holistic Diastasis Healing Therapy, offers an initial 90 minute appointment where I deeply assess your postnatal body and determine the stage of your postnatal healing. This treatment is for you if you feel you still have a 'mummy tummy' or suspect your abdominal muscles have not returned to where you feel they should be.
These are hands on appointments involving soft tissue releases and work including either some postnatal release massage or c-section scar therapy and release massage. Following this initial appointment further 60 minute appointments are recommended, which combine real mum movement strategies with soft tissue and release work all tailored to your individual progress and stage of healing.
I will demonstrate how to use KT Tape to support your tummy and teach you to apply it to your own body.
I include your own resistance band to keep and use to practice your homework in-between sessions. I aim to teach you how to reconnect with your pelvic floor muscles and encourage your core to work synergistically. Depending on your stage of healing, I may recommend that we incorporate the Hypopressive Method into your programme. However, recent research suggests that the traditional Hypopressive method is thought to delay diastasis healing with some ladies, so precaution must be taken and a modified method used.
These sessions should enable you to continue your postnatal recovery and help you reconnect with you core and pelvic floor muscles. These are not personal fitness training or exercise sessions but focused on rehabilitation, education and fully interactive skills you can use in your everyday life. If you feel you require more sessions, these can of course be arranged.
