And since I had so many responses with the desire to learn more about the relationship between the lungs and the pelvic floor, here is part two of this subject 🤓
(If you missed last week's email, click here to read it!)
On the other hand,
The way I look at it, the lungs and the pelvis balance each other out.
When you inhale, the diaphragm comes down into the belly and makes the lungs more negative to act like a stronger vacuum. This pushes the abdominal organs (intestines, kidneys, liver, etc.) down slightly and increases the pressure in the pelvis.
So, as the lungs get more negative, the pelvis gets more positive.
It's a natural balancing act.
So, this is why unresolved things that are held in the chest/lungs often manifest as a dysfunction in the pelvis and vice versa.
It all comes down to pressure.
So, if you are having pelvic issues, like bladder leakage, pelvic pain, constipation, abdominal cramping, tailbone pain... basically anything wrong "down there", there could be a pressure issue!
Reach out... It would be an honor and privilege to work with you.
