My client came to me on referral from a friend of hers who sees me as a client also suffering from endometriosis. When I met my client she had just had surgery to help remove some of the scar tissue from the endometrial tissue build up in her abdomen. Her pain had been so severe that although the doctors cleared a lot of the scar tissue, hormone surges still caused a good amount of discomfort with every period. In addition she was struggling with digestive disorders of persistent gas and bloating. (more…)
When I met my client she was only having 1 bowel movement per week and a sense of fullness in her bladder at all times. She had suffered from uterine and pelvic cancer at a young age leaving her scarred and without her reproductive organs. The surgeon had been careless also leaving her with a damaged renal line. The scarring on her abdomen was significant as was the inflammation. Nothing had provided much relief and she wanted to try the Maya Abdominal and supportive clinical visceral work. (more…)
My client came to me a few months ago wanting to address her digestive distress along with her anxiety around preparing her body for IVF (in-vitro fertilization). The unique part of this picture is that the fertility challenges her and her partner were having were male factor- meaning he was challenged in the fertility department.
Her presenting symptoms were IBS, anxiety and painful, incomplete menses (they were not bright red). Through our sessions we worked on decongesting and supporting the uterus which was anteverted (tipped forward). Even without male factor challenges these issues could have made conception difficult anyways. (more…)
