Holistic Pelvic Care

Holistic Pelvic Care™ is a holistic approach to pelvic care that arises from deep listening to your body. It uses gentle inter-vaginal massage techniques combined with breathing techniques to support balancing the physical and energetic aspects of your pelvis. Together we engage self inquiry practices to support women to understand the patterns of tension we hold in our pelvic bowls, as well as offer tools for women to learn how to rewire these patterns to create more balance in the pelvis.

In all stages of a woman’s life, this work restores the pelvic bowl as the creative center of our bodies.

Holistic Pelvic Care™ is a modality pioneered by Tami Lynn Kent, MSPT. Tami began her physical therapy practice in a hospital setting, and as she witnessed the profound physical benefits, she concurrently realized she was able to read energetic patterns of the pelvis. She combined her medical knowledge with her intuitive understanding to create the modality Holistic Pelvic Care™. Tami has written a number of pivotal books as well, the most notable of which is called The Wild Feminine.
