The Pelvic Space: Source of a Woman’s Strength
A woman’s health provides the strength and energy for her journey through life. A balanced, fit body, sustained by a nutritious diet, exercise and a positive outlook is the ideal that we all strive to achieve. But life gets in the way. And when a woman’s self-care falters, or life becomes stressful due to myriad responsibilities and daily challenges, illness can result.
The source of a woman’s strength lies within her pelvic space, a bowl-shaped complex of bones that contains and supports the intestines, the urinary bladder and the internal sex organs. Archaeologists rely on the pelvic bones as an indicator of gender: a woman’s pelvis has distinct features that prepare her for childbearing. That physiology in the root of the body is often the first to get out of balance.
The good news: we can help you regain pelvic health!
