Pelvic floor muscles can be overly loose or even too tight. The stress of childbirth, changes that occur with menopause, and health or sexual history have an effect on these important, yet little known muscles and their ligaments.
Pelvic floor imbalances can manifest as back, hip or sacroiliac issues, painful intercourse, incontinence and digestive complaints. Because the pelvis is an area associated with intimacy, it can also be a region where many people hold emotions. A toned and balanced pelvic floor nurtures hormonal wellness, allows for healthy function of reproductive and excretory organs, and provides postural support.
