The therapy usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour, and focuses on the structures of the abdomen and the pelvic region. The work seeks to free blockages in the pelvic bowl, and increase blood, nervous system, and lymph flow through the area. It is ideal for pre-conception, pregnancy, and postpartum recovery, as it helps to gently realign the uterus in the pelvis, ease congestion, and gently stretch hips and sacrum back into balance. Many women report easing of typical symptoms of pregnancy and postpartum (digestive distress, pelvic pain, low back pain, etc), as well as experiencing less bleeding and faster recovery from birth.
A key component of therapy is the teaching of home-care techniques. This moves the power of the techniques right into the hands of the clients, and they can continue the benefits of the therapy on their own, in between sessions with a professional care provider.
I offer Abdominal Therapy sessions for any pregnant or postpartum clients, regardless of their planned place of birth. My own home birth clients receive multiple sessions throughout their pregnancies, and postpartum, as well as encouragement and instruction in using the self-care techniques. I am one of only a small handful of practitioners in the state, and have completed the entire series of classes, and am now fully certified. Additionally, I offer a free session to anyone who is within six weeks of a pregnancy loss.
