IS INTERNAL / INTRAVAGINAL WORK REQUIRED?
No. Only external treatment, with hand placement on the abdomen, pelvis, hips and glutes, takes place at Ananda Woman. Holistic Pelvic Care™ is a modality that involves internal touch, however, this will be explained and taught for you to complete independently.
I HAVE EXPERIENCED TRAUMA AND AM NERVOUS ABOUT ANOTHER PERSON TENDING TO THIS AREA OF MY BODY. CAN I STILL RECEIVE CARE?
Most definitely. Sadly, female sexual trauma is extremely common and based on statistics one in every three women seeking care will have experienced this. This is why trauma informed care shapes every session.
I RECENTLY EXPERIENCED ABORTION / MISCARRIAGE / STILLBIRTH. CAN I RECEIVE CARE?
Absolutely. Abortion, miscarriage and stillbirth are recognised as births nonetheless at Ananda Woman. Your body has experienced significant changes and requires support and care to heal from this sensitive journey. Please see Pregnancy Loss Support under Offerings and Treatments for further information about available support and treatment.
WHERE IS WHOLESOME PELVIC CARE LOCATED?
Ananda Care is located in Byron Bay NSW Australia and serves women between Ballina and Tweed with all sessions taking place in the client's home. Online consultations are also available for women worldwide.
APPOINTMENTS TAKE PLACE IN THE HOME. DO I NEED TO PREPARE ANYTHING?
Ideally for the duration of your appointment you will have a private and calm space of your home for the session to take place. All distractions need to be minimised.
ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS TO RECEIVING TREATMENT?
There are some physical techniques that have contraindications. A thorough initial questionnaire will be completed during the initial consultation to ensure anything that is contraindicated is identified and treatment is adjusted accordingly. For example, pelvic and abdominal manipulations are contraindicated if the woman has an intrauterine device (IUD).
