Ananda Woman is a holistic women's health practice that specialises in restoring health and vitality within the pelvic space which in turn supports the whole body. Treatment is a combination of modalities which can involve hands-on physical manipulation of the pelvic organs, muscles, bones and fascia. Meanwhile lifestyle, emotional and environmental aspects of your life are always addressed.

Pelvic care is an area of health that is often overlooked by women and treating health professionals until clear symptoms of dysfunction have developed. You do not need to wait until you have developed problematic symptoms. All women are welcome and encouraged to tend to their pelvic health proactively.

Services are provided within the Northern Rivers region of NSW, Australia and online consultations are available worldwide.

Painful Periods

Holistic Women's Health Practitioner

My name is Kaitlin, I'm the creator of Ananda Woman. I completed my Bachelor of Health Science (Honours) and Master of Occupational Therapy in 2016 and went on to work in multiple healthcare fields in Australia and abroad. Having experienced my own pelvic health issues for many years, I recognised holistic care for women is extremely difficult to find and was inspired to complete several professional trainings, and a lot of unlearning, to provide care that supports balance and thriving health within the pelvic space.

Women who have that inner Ananda cannot be disturbed by sorrow or pain in body or mind. Ananda is a fullness of feeling in which we can discover our true self in all beings. It is not a denial of sorrow or pain, rather Ananda is the transcendence of them. Women who embody Ananda can experience all that life has to offer, extracting the essence of creative delight behind the universal movement on all planes of existence.
