Unlocking the Secrets of Your Pelvic Floor: Women's Health and the Power of Listening.


Discover how understanding the words we use to describe our symptoms can reveal further insights into our physical and emotional well-being.


When dealing with injuries, diseases, or chronic pain, it's not uncommon to feel disconnected from various aspects of our lives, whether physically, mentally, or emotionally. This disconnection can manifest in the language we use to describe our symptoms, providing valuable insights into the underlying causes of our discomfort. In this blog, we'll delve into the significance of mindful language use and its potential positive impact on women's health, specifically focusing on the pelvic floor.


The Power of Language in Women's Health 

Real-Life Example: Nancy's Story


Consider the following example: Nancy, a woman experiencing various aches and pains throughout her body, sought help. As she described her symptoms, She spoke of her headaches and joint pain, labeling her digestive troubles as "inconvenient" and metaphorically stating that her gut "operates on its terms

Upon further examination, it became clear that Nancy's choice of words revealed deep-seated feelings of disconnect and unresolved emotions. Through a combination of Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, and meaningful conversations, Nancy's symptoms gradually diminished, and she began to feel freer and more joyful in her life


The Importance of Listening 


Words Matter 


The words we employ to express our physical discomfort often harbor hints about underlying elements that contribute to our persistent pain. By closely observing our language, we can unearth crucial insights regarding our emotional and physical health.

Body Communication


Sometimes, our bodies communicate in ways we don't immediately understand. Bodywork therapies can help the body feel heard, seen, and validated, promoting healing and overall wellness.

Embrace the Feminine Approach 


Listening and communication are essential aspects of a feminine approach to health and wellness, playing a crucial role in women's health, including pelvic floor care.




In conclusion, understanding and listening to the words we use to describe our symptoms can shed light on the deeper sources of our pain, enabling us to address and overcome our physical and emotional challenges. By embracing this feminine approach to health and wellness, we can improve our overall well-being and promote better women's health, particularly when it comes to pelvic floor care.
