Resourses

This is what I found useful and/or inspiring. I have also listed some, mostly local, businesss, generally people I rate highly. It is work in progress. I have loads I need to put on, but fortunately I am very busy at work at the moment. 

There is a link page relating to pregnancy massage and there is also an information page regarding Lymphoedema and Manual Lymphatic Drainage.

Mainly Womanly matters

A good starting point to find out about your the pelvic floor is FooFooFunBox and the PelFix Technique.

Endiing my female pain are self-help tools and empowering protocols created by Isa Herrera.

The Healing Choice is a guide to emotional recovery after an abortion by Candace De Puy

The Tupler Technique treats diastasis recti (a separation of your outer most abdominal muscles).

The Story of Menstruation is a 1946 10-minute animated film produced by Walt Disney Productions in 1946.

Castor oil

Castor oil is derived from the tree of Palma Christi (Ricinus cummunis). It has been used therapeutically as a folk remedy in India, China, Persia, Africa, Greece, Rome and in the Americas. Edgar Cayce, a medical intuitive known as the "sleeping prophet" introduced castor oil packs for many conditions. Castor oil packs are recommended in Arvigo therapy for healing, relaxation, scar treatment and much more.

Other therapies

Chris Dowson is a caring and knowledgeable therapist. He uses Zero Balancing to address physical problems, which, in his experience, often have emotional and/or psychological elements to them. He is a qualified McTimoney Chiropractor and a  third degree black belt in Lau Gar Kung Fu. 

Some people have a number of health issues which don't seem to be addressed within the NHS. They may need some detective work to find out what is going on, and how to go forward from there. In my experience Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can help along the way. TCM uses a completely different frame work (which sounds gobbledygook to us uninitiated), and so may shine a new light on the health concerns. Here are two recommendations, firstly Andrew Kemp from the Grange. He is an experienced practitioner, and also prescribes Chinese herbs. Secondly, Dr Carolyn Eddlestone, a private GP and acupuncturist in Leicestershire (Barrow Upon Soar).

A nutritionalist recommended by a client is Heather Lee on 01159333698 or 07770826640.

Feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais Method® offers a unique and practical way to realise our potential more fully. It is an educational method focusing on learning and movement, which can bring about improved movement and enhanced functioning. It is named after its originator, Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984), an engineer and physicist as well as a Judo teacher.

There are free lessons (that is what they call them) on the Feldenkrais Guild website. Joan Winter runs monthly classes in Chesterfield.
