In the UK nearly 1/4 of births are via C-Section and many more women experience the procedure throughout their lives for other gynaecological procedures yet there is no real guidance on how to heal successfully from such a major procedure and successfully reconnect to the core never mind deal with the soft-tissue issues (adhesions and scar tissue) that arise from these types of procedures.
We feel this approach to c section recovery needs reviewing significantly and we offer a number of options at the clinic in Knowle these and for those that are newly post and as well as those women who have had a section some time ago whether that is 1 year or even up to 15 to 20 years later. The impact of a C section does not necessarily just improve with time it needs a clear recovery plan.
have you had a c-section?
- Do you feel disconnect to your tummy and Pelvic Floor since your C-Section?
- Do you have a painful, uncomfortable or numb C-Section scar that you want to free?
- Does your scar hurt after any lifting or an exercise session?
- Have you noticed a change in your bowel movements since your C-Section?
- Have you experienced the odd leak when jumping, running, laughing or sneezing ?
- Do you have ‘lower back pain’ issues that you’ve been told is due to a ‘weak Core’?
- Do you want a better looking belly and unsure how to lose the typical mum tum pouch ?
If you have a answered YES to any of the above questions. – we have a SOLUTION to support you! We offer a range of appointments from a single c section massage, c section massage package to a more in depth programme combining massage and exercise including an on line programme
