My mission is singular yet profound: to impart the knowledge I've garnered over years, ensuring no woman feels alone or helpless when faced with Pelvic Health concerns.
As someone deeply committed to this mission, I've dedicated twenty years to cultivating state-of-the-art Physio and Pilates clinics. Here, the focus isn’t just on isolated concerns but understanding the interrelated nature of issues like pelvic organ prolapse, bladder leakage, and low back pain. Research, my trusted ally, has shown that these aren't disparate conditions but interwoven threads of the same fabric.
In our quest for holistic well-being, technology and understanding go hand in hand. My affinity for Real-time Ultrasound isn't just for its cutting-edge capabilities but for how it has revolutionized rehabilitation. Being able to visualize one’s own muscles contracting and understanding their function – especially for those who learn best through seeing – has proved invaluable. By harnessing this technology, I provide biofeedback across various muscle groups, emphasizing the pelvic floor, abdominal cylinder, and key joint-supporting muscles. This approach doesn’t just treat but educates, allowing my clients to grasp how their muscles harmoniously collaborate for optimal joint health, continence, and pelvic support.
Anchoring my practice is the biopsychosocial model, emphasizing the interplay between biological, psychological, and social factors. This holistic approach guarantees that care is individualized, addressing the unique and multifaceted needs of every client.
Peeking into my educational journey: I proudly hold three postgraduate qualifications in Physiotherapy. 1997 was a transformative year as I immersed myself in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy, sharpening my assessment skills and clinical reasoning. A decade later, I plunged into the realm of Continence and Pelvic Floor Muscle Rehabilitation, understanding the intricacies of bladder, bowel, and pelvic organ dysfunctions. Always being one to stay abreast of evolving knowledge, 2022 saw me diving back into academia, completing the Professional Certificate of Conservative Management of Pelvic Organ Prolapse. This intensive study invigorated my approach, equipped me with the latest research insights, and fortified my proficiency in aiding women with pelvic organ prolapse.
Recognizing the power of digital platforms and the need to reach and assist women globally, all my experience as a Pelvic Health Physio converged into the development of "Pelvic Exercise 4U" – an online Pelvic Health solution. This platform is a testament to my commitment to making quality pelvic health education and solutions accessible to all women, no matter where they are.
Every day, I marry evidence-based research with expert opinions, ensuring the care I offer is rooted in proven science and tailored for individual needs. This combination is enhanced by the Cognitive Functional Therapy approach, which prioritizes a harmonious 'Mind-Body Control'.
Beyond the clinic, my journey as a mother provides a firsthand perspective on the delicate balance between professional aspirations and familial responsibilities. This experience amplifies my empathy, allowing a deeper connection with women navigating the transformative phases of pregnancy and motherhood.
At my core, I am ceaselessly inspired, inherently positive, and fervently passionate about Women's Pelvic Health. My devotion isn't just professional but personal, advocating for lifelong learning and empowerment. With every consultation, every class, every online interaction, and through "Pelvic Exercise 4U", my vision remains clear: to empower women, helping them realize and cherish the strength within, ensuring a robust, well-functioning body through all life's chapters.
