Review: 3 Abdominal Therapies

I receive emails and phone calls weekly from bodyworkers who are interested in learning abdominal therapy. They ask me which modality they should focus on. That’s a tough question to answer because it really depends on the individual, their commitment level and how they approach the body. So, I’ve outlined three different forms of abdominal therapy that I offer and included a general layout of each of the educational paths.

Wink Basal Body Thermometer

Wink Basal Body Thermometer

I’ve been using the Kindara menstrual charting app now for over a year and absolutely love it. But I stopped recording my temperature because the basal body thermometers I’ve used were, in my opinion, a pain in the butt. They took too long to read my...

Fertility Case Records

Fertility Case Records

The following are case reports of a few of my fertility clients. Keep in mind this is not a controlled scientific study, it’s just a record of treatments and outcomes. It would be impossible for me to do a valid controlled study. I never use the same treatment for everyone. I treat the person, not the condition.

Topo Mat Review

Topo Mat Review

I’ve added the anti-fatigue Topo Mat to my dynamic workstation. As we all know by now, standing in one position all day long is not good for the body. The Topo Mat is an anti-fatigue mat that keeps you moving with its varied terrain surface. The video below is a sped up version of me using the Topo Mat. You can reverse the mat to vary your terrain even more. The teardrop in the middle is great for stretching the feet from several angles.

Manual Thermal Evaluation

Manual Thermal Evaluation

Manual Thermal Evaluation (MTE) is an evaluation technique I learned in a Functional Methods training and in the Visceral Manipulation™ (VM-5) course (both based on osteopathic evaluations and techniques). I use MTE with every single client, so I thought I’d take a brief moment to tell you what I’m doing during MTE. It is much more complex than what I’m presenting here, but it’s important to give you a general overview, so you don’t think I’m doing voodoo.

The Dance Of The Uteri

The Dance Of The Uteri

The uterus must be mobile for proper physiological function. When the uterus is fixed in one position fibrosis of the ligaments can result and impair local circulation. When circulation is impaired, the cells won’t get proper nutrients (oxygen), and acidity, pain, and cell death will follow. There are 3 main types of movements the uterus exhibits (that I know of). Mobility, motility and contractions. I’ll briefly cover them below.

Abdominal Adhesions

Abdominal Adhesions

Abdominal Adhesions are fibrous tissues that can form between abdominal tissues and organs due to abdominal or pelvic infections, surgery, inflammation or injury. Internal organs have slippery surfaces that enable them to slide and glide against other organs and tissues. When adhesions are present the tissues no longer glide and the internal organ’s motility is inhibited, organ function may be affected, pain may result and larger movements of the body may be inhibited.
