The world still isn’t quite comfortable talking about the female anatomy. Many women are disconnected from their pelvic floor and their lady parts. We don’t feel like these body parts are a part of civilized conversation.
And yet, as a pelvic floor specialist and pelvic health therapist, I’ve seen amazing things happen when women are able to connect with their pelvic floor.
- Women who couldn’t sneeze without wetting themselves completely heal and go on to embrace working out and playing with their grandchildren on the trampoline
- Women who suffered from prolapse and were told they would have to have surgery take control of their bodies and heal themselves
- Women that had severe pelvic pain learn to love intimacy and restore their relationships
Sure, a lot of dedication to self-care exercises that work the pelvic floor muscles.
But I truly believe that there’s more to this epidemic of pelvic problems women are facing. Did you know that about one-fourth of women in the U.S. suffer from pelvic floor disorders? (1)
And, as a pelvic floor therapist that’s healed over 15,000 women — I can say without a doubt that when we connect with our pelvic floor, embrace our feminine body, and learn to include our lady parts in our overall body — that is where the magic truly happens.
When we try to talk about health without considering our pelvic health…we can’t be truly healthy. As women, our feminine anatomy is as crucial to our wellbeing as our heart or our lungs.
It’s time we honor that and embrace our pelvic floors.
Female Health Includes Pelvic Health
Sure, you go to the gynecologist every year or two, wince through your pap smear and bolt out of the office the minute you can tear off your paper gown and find your clothes.
But there’s more to female health than this annual ritual that often leaves us feeling even more dehumanized and uncomfortable with our body parts.
For my patients, pelvic floor health is like a vital sign.
After all, when the muscles and fascia of the pelvic floor are weak, you can’t legitimately be completely healthy.
If your pelvic floor isn’t in the condition it should be, your:
- Posture suffers
- Libido suffers
- Bladder suffers
- Mood suffers
- Entire foundation of your internal organs suffers!
You can’t talk about female health without including the status of your pelvic health. It’s really that simple.
Why Is The Pelvic Floor So Important?
The pelvic floor is shaped like a basin — and that basin literally holds up the entire structure of your body. (2,3)
So when I say the pelvic floor is crucial for your health…I really mean it.
But when will we actually prioritize learning about the pelvic floor and its anatomy? Usually, only when problems start to crop up.
And here’s the thing…when it comes to the pelvic floor, prevention can make an enormous difference — waiting until your bladder leaks with every cough isn’t necessary.
But when you’re taught to be disconnected from your body and your feminine body parts, prevention doesn’t feel like a priority, right?
What Is The Root Chakra?
Here’s another thing that women don’t often realize. Your root chakra, which is where the muscles of the pelvic floor attach to the spine, is where we feel security and stability.
So it’s also the place that holds stress.
Which means that in years like 2020 and 2021 that have been some of the most stressful of many of our lives — women are carrying around their stress in their pelvic floor. Inside of the basin that forms the support structure for your organs. Which in turn, leads to your whole entire body feeling stressed.
What’s more, the root chakra is where our passion, creativity, and joy live. So when the pelvic floor is compromised, or we act as if that part of the body is separate from us — we block the very pleasures our life is meant for.
It’s no wonder that when women embrace pelvic floor therapy that they become lighter, freer, younger, and happier. I credit my own youthful appearance and joy-filled life to my strong relationship with my root chakra and pelvic floor.
