Personalized, Holistic 
Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy for Women 

Santa Barbara, California

What I Treat

Pelvic Pain

If muscles, ligaments, joints or facia develop restrictions, this can cause your body to respond with types of pelvic pain.

Pregnancy & Postpartum

Pregnancy and childbirth can be a traumatic event to a woman’s pelvic floor, causing pain and dysfunction to muscles and tissues in the region.

Bowel and bladder dysfunction

Bowel and bladder incontinence--the loss of control of urine or stool--is a common and inconvenient problem.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)

POP can occur when the muscles and ligaments supporting a woman's pelvic organs weaken, and the pelvic organs slip out of place.

How I Treat

When traditional physical therapy is not enough...

In addition to traditional physical therapy, I offer complementary healing modalities to address physical, emotional and spiritual influences through:

  • energy balancing
  • emotional balancing (Bach Flower Remedies)
  • kinesiology (muscle testing)
  • body listening
  • microcurrent technology (Tennant BioModulator and BioTransducer)
  • visceral manipulation
