Myofascial Release and your Pelvic Floor

Why release the fascia through your pelvic floor?

Many of us try to rectify issues in the pelvic floor by doing some form of exercise or stretch that we may have learned from a physical therapist or doctor. While exercising is an important part of maintaining pelvic floor health, adding release work to your routine will optimize the benefits gained from your fitness routine.

It may not be that your restriction is contained within your pelvic floor but it serves as a good starting point to figure out where restrictions might lie.

How do I release the pelvic floor?

It is as simple as sitting on a ball. But not just any ball! Studies have shown that the more aggressive or hard the point of contact is with the fascial system, the more the fascia will constrict. To this end we have developed two products– a soft ball and a semi hard ball that work best for the release.

How will I know I have released my pelvic floor?

You will be instructed to check in with your sit bones (yes, the bones you sit on) before and after the release and feel the difference. There are also significant changes in the abdominal area when the pelvic floor is released. Which leads us to the next benefit.

What conditions benefit from this release?

This is an essential release for the rehabilitation of diastasis recti and hernias, postpartum recovery, c sections and back pain. Our clients do this release throughout their pregnancies to prepare for the birth and during postpartum recovery to help release restriction caused by birth trauma.
