Shenandoah Women's Alliance - Fascia & Female Health
Fascia & Female Health
This seminar will be debunking myths that are perpetuated regarding women’s health (like bladder issues are normal after having children). Many of these myths cause women of all ages to live with issues and/or pursue interventions that are expensive, ineffective, and sometimes harmful, leaving them in worse condition. We’ll explore how attention to the fascial system can influence many of these problems (bladder issues, pelvic pain, endometriosis, menopausal symptoms, etc.) efficiently and effectively without surgery, drugs, pads, or pills. We’ll also take a look at how and why the body stores fat as it does, and self-treatment techniques that can help to break it up.
