C-Section Scar Rehabilitation

How does C-Section Scar Release & Rehabilitation therapy feel?

C-section scar therapy is an effective, non-invasive therapy that incorporates the use of remedial massage techniques, myofascial release, cupping, and Gua Sha to the abdomen, on and around your scar.

 

You may experience a "pulling" or "warm" sensation during treatment, however your therapist will always work to your level of comfort.

When is the best time to start treatment?

You may begin treatment as soon as your incision has healed completely, which is typically from 8 weeks post-surgery.

 

Although it is best to start working on your scar within 5 months after Caesarean surgery, many women have experienced significant relief from lower back and pelvic pain after receiving C-section scar therapy as many as 20 years after giving birth!

How many treatment sessions will I need?

The number of treatment sessions recommended varies from person to person and depends on the nature of your scar, how old your scar is, and how your body responds to therapy.

 

Generally, you will notice significant improvements in your healing and appearance of your abdomen and scar within 3-4 treatment sessions. Many individuals however, experience positive changes after just one session!

Mercier Therapy

What is Mercier Therapy?

Mercier Therapy incorporates massage therapy and visceral manipulation of the reproductive organs (uterus & ovaries) to help restore blood flow, mobility and function within the female pelvis.

How does Mercier Therapy feel?

Depending on the level of restriction and tension within the pelvis, you may experience some discomfort however your therapist will work at your level of comfort. You may also feel some tenderness the day after receiving therapy, however this can vary from person to person.

Who can benefit from receiving Mercier Therapy?

Women experiencing a number of issues such as chronic pelvic pain, gynaecological issues, birth or sexual trauma, endometriosis, PCOS, and infertility can all benefit from receiving Mercier Therapy.

Who is not a good candidate for receiving Mercier Therapy?

You cannot receive Mercier Therapy if you have any of the following:

IUD

Essure

Active pelvic infection

Any cancer cells present

For women with endometriosis, Mercier Therapy cannot be performed during your menstrual cycle.

Can I receive Mercier Therapy if I am preparing for IUI or IVF?

Yes. Mercier Therapy can increase the pregnancy success rate of IUI and IVF when used in preparation for these procedures, prior to the stimulation phase.

By increasing blood flow to your reproductive organs and releasing any restrictions present, Mercier Therapy can help your body function more optimally and therefore increase your chances of responding well to medically assisted cycles.

What happens if I conceive before completing my therapy?

If you become pregnant during your therapy, the remaining Mercier Therapy sessions will be completed post-partum. You may also choose to use your remaining session for C-Section Scar Release and Rehabilitation if you had a Caesarean birth.

Pre & Postnatal Corrective Exercise

What is Prenatal Corrective Exercise?

Prenatal corrective exercise is a fitness approach tailored to the specific needs and changes that occur in a woman's body during pregnancy. It focuses on exercises and movements that aim to:

  1. Strengthen Core Muscles: The abdominal muscles undergo significant changes during pregnancy, and prenatal corrective exercises help maintain core strength and stability.

  2. Correct Posture: Pregnancy can lead to changes in posture due to the shifting centre of gravity. Corrective exercises can address posture issues and prevent discomfort.

  3. Improve Pelvic Floor Function: Maintaining pelvic floor strength is essential for both pregnancy and childbirth. Prenatal exercises target the pelvic floor muscles to reduce the risk of issues like incontinence.

  4. Reduce Pregnancy Discomfort: Exercises can help alleviate common pregnancy discomforts like back pain, leg cramps, and tight muscles.

  5. Enhance Circulation and Energy Levels: Gentle, pregnancy-safe exercises can improve blood circulation and boost energy levels, helping women stay active and healthy during pregnancy.

  6. Prepare for Labour: Some prenatal exercises focus on breathing techniques and movements that can aid in labour and delivery.

What is Postnatal Corrective Exercise?

Postnatal corrective exercise, on the other hand, is designed to help women regain strength, mobility, and fitness after childbirth. It typically involves exercises and movements that:

  1. Restore Core Function: Postnatal exercises focus on rebuilding abdominal and pelvic floor muscles weakened during pregnancy and childbirth.

  2. Realign and Strengthen: They help realign the body's posture and strengthen muscles that may have become imbalanced during pregnancy.

  3. Address Diastasis Recti: If a separation of the abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) occurred during pregnancy, postnatal corrective exercises can help close the gap and restore abdominal strength.

  4. Improve Pelvic Floor Health: Corrective exercises continue to promote pelvic floor health and may be crucial for preventing postpartum issues like incontinence.

  5. Boost Overall Fitness: Postnatal corrective exercise gradually reintroduces women to physical activity, aiding in the recovery process and promoting overall well-being.
