Your Pelvis & You: Together Forever!
Tuesday, April 16th, 2019
7:00 – 8:30 PM
A woman and her pelvis are in relationship for LIFE! Taking care of this relationship will only reap rewards across our lifespans. This workshop is for you if you are a woman who might like a better relationship with her pelvic systems.
With over 20 years experience as a physiotherapist Gillian McCormick has helped hundreds of women of all ages improve their sometimes challenging relationships with their pelvises, including the treatment of urinary and fecal incontinence, constipation, painful sex, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse.
During the workshop she will introduce pelvic geography, function and upkeep for a lifetime of pelvic health (the true indicator of a good relationship).
Topics such as how and when to do pelvic floor exercises, the best way to poo, what your bladder is really saying will be covered. Come join us in North Vancouver for information and useful try-this-at-home tips on optimizing your pelvic health.
