About me,

                                          

Hello Dear one,

 

Welcome to my work and website where I will be sharing about IPT® and why it is such a wonderful addition to Womens' Healing and a way to really get in touch with yourself and your body. 

Healing takes place when there is space, time, and the recognition that that what comes up may actually be seen, heard and felt. This can only happen when you feel safe. Feeling safe, is the first rule towards making any healing possible.  And for a woman to feel safe in general, it is necessary for her to feel safe in her body and especially in her Pelvic Bowl. 

 

However, a lot of us women do not feel safe, and not just in our body, but also on other levels, and you may have some degree of feelings shame or fear in regards to your pelvic bowl, and you probably have very valid concerns in regards to your pelvic area. Because when things “down under” aren’t functioning the way you’d like them to function, it can feel really uncomfortable and even scary to bring this up. Sure, during a dinner party, most of us feel okay sharing about our headaches, but when it comes to sharing about a painful vagina, unwanted urine loss, or a lack of sex-drive, we tend to keep it to ourselves, or wait too long to find help because often it is also not easy to find the right professional (kind and supportive) help you need either. But this is where IPT® comes in:

 

Because IPT® offers the bridge between the medical world and holistic world. We see the woman as a whole complete Being, and we also have the skill set as an IPT® practitioner to work with your pelvis in a safe and absolute consensual way. We hear you, see you and will connect with you how you want and how your body wants.

To be honest, for me, IPT® is actually the puzzle piece that I missed in my 20-year Women's Healing Practice. I wanted something that went to the core of our being and thus could support deep healing and transformation, and IPT® offers this.

Looking forward to connecting with you. 

Love,

Siridyal

INTEGRAL PELVIC THERAPY ® 

What is IPT®?

IPT® is a safe and accessible therapeutic form of bodywork, specifically designed for women. It heals, restores balance and awakens the powerful feminine wisdom that lives in every woman. Integral Pelvic Therapy® is designed to help you to restore the natural balance in your pelvis, as IPT® sessions increase the cellular flow in your pelvic bowl via specific fascia release massage techniques. This improves the pelvic muscular health, strength and vitality. These pelvic massages, (which a women can receive externally and if she wants also internally) help to release long held tension and triggerpoints. By working with triggerpoints, scar tissue and held emotions (such as grief, shame, anger, fear) we can help re-establish a healthy balanced pelvic floor, enabling the pelvic muscles to enhance their function and so balance your whole core structural support, as well as your emotional health. 

 

The IPT® training I took in The Netherlands has been created by Daphne van de Putten (an holistic and clinical midwife), and Mariette Frits (Body Stress Release® therapist). This was a 9 months training where we went indepth into the anatomy of the female body, and in particular that of the female pelvic bowl. We were extensively taught on numerous aspects such as the effect of trauma in the pelvic bowl, deep embodied consent, physical, emotional and psychological patterns, as well as the many conditions/disorders/ailments/complaints women may be troubled with. During our training we included teachings from many modalities and experts, including  Peter Levine and Bessel van der Kolks' effects of trauma on the body and psyche, and Tami Lynns Kent teachings, founder Holistic Pelvic Care TM, regarding pelvic/ovary/womb wisdom and their energetic/emotional messages. I did my final thesis on the connection of Dissociation and Shame due to Trauma a person may have experienced.   

It is safe to say, that all women that I have worked with experienced a profound Re-Connect with themselves and their Pelvis. The power that lies there is truly phenomenal, and once a Woman decides to live from her Sacred Center, quite a lot of things start to change for her on many different levels.  

 So, what can IPT® help you with:

  • Relieving menstrual / PMS pain and so being able to start enjoying your period again.

  • Help to reduce or eliminate pain during sex and so improve your sex life. Because this should give you pleasure! 

  • Deeply connect with your uterus and ovaries  (even if the organs aren't physically there, the organ's energy never goes away).

  • Relieve/heal pain in your vulva / vagina (also after birth)

  • Experiencing relief from / Transforming trauma from (sexual) abuse / accidents and also traumatic birthexperiences.

  • Relieve or heal frequent urinary tract or bladder infections and/or yeast infections.

  • Relieve/heal low back pain or pelvic pain (such as vulvodynia, vestibulodynia, dyspareunia, chronic pelvic pain syndrome).

  • The loosening of fascia limitations due to scar tissue and/or pain after surgery (birth, caesarean section, etc.) so that a flow and vitality can be experienced again and often also (less) or no more pain.

  • Letting go and transforming heavy emotions, painful triggers and trauma that got stuck in the pelvis and thus regaining and trusting your own strength and body again. 

  • Maybe you feel stressed, tense or tired and have little energy, IPT can help you can feel more energized as well.

  • Jaw problems (which are often related to pelvic problems and vice versa) and learning to relax them. (And also letting go of heavy emotions in relation to your jaws, which is often repressed anger or frustration)

  • And finding your deep reconnection with your Self and your pelvic bowl and learning to indicate your limits.

  • And also experience your Life Force / Sexual energy in a whole new way and becoming more aware of it.

IPT® and Embodied Consent:

These massages can touch many layers of your being, not just physical, but also emotional, spiritual and mental. It is therefor expected that 'stuff may come up'.  So it is VERY important we work with Embodied Consent. This means that you, as a client feel a full “yes” in your head, your heart and your body. So often in our lives we have “allowed” touch or physical handling that was not 100% within our consent. During an IPT session you will experience time after time what it is like to actually be “in control” of what is happening to you. This is truly one of the hallmarks of the way Integral Pelvic Therapy® really really stands out.  And this alone is a very empowering experience and will have you be in full charge of what happens to you and your body during our session together.  This proces of experiencing this full embodied consent is very healing and you so will (re)learn to establish healthy boundaries, which so often we've forgotten where those lie to begin with.

 

IPT® works on several layers: 
1. Physical Layer: we work with fascia stretching and with triggerpoints can be released so allowing more bloodflow and new release of energy
2. Emotional Layer: We store emotions in our cells, in our body. And with this work, they can be released.
3. Energetic Layer: We are not just the body. We are so much more. Energy is everwhere, and when moving this energy, you can feel a lot of release, a feeling of "lighter" more "fuller". A lot of women come of the table with a beautiful soft glow :) 
4. Spiritual Layer: Since we are all connected, sometimes certain family pattern, or habits are stuck in our system, and with Pelvic Balancing we can let them go, integrate and feel lighter.

Intake, Sessions and Investment in your Pelvic Health:

Feel free to call me for a 15 min phone call, free of charge.  There is always an intake (about 1-1.5 hours long) before our first session where you receive the intake form as well. This way we can go over any (medical) issues you may have, and together we can then make an informed deciscion on how to proceed, what your wishes are for receiving the session, and really make sure this is the right approacht for you. After our intake, we schedule our first session. 

Intake: €90  (around 1 to 1.5 uur) 

First IPT® Sessions: 225 (2 hours)

Follow Up Sessions: €200 per session

YONI STEAMS 

Yoni Steams are incredibly good for women and also a great way to relax your pelvic floor and connect with your pelvis in a really really soft and healing way. Your Yoni and Vagina clean themselves in a natural way, but it is still very nice and supportive to do a steam once or twice a month for nourishing the membrane of the wall of the womb, release old menstrual blood and restore the natural pH in your vagina, and many more benefits. 

 

Yoni Steaming is a really lovely way to relax, let go, release and allowing your yoni, vagina and pelvic floor muscles to unwind and relax. I will set the space for you before hand and create a feeling of Sacred Ceremony. We'll have an altar where you also can bring something to put on it and we will bless the steam, your session and the altar together as well.  Before we start with the steam, we will do a womb journey together, or a guided meditation, and we can talk about what is on your mind, your hearts wish,  and so set the intent for your Yoni Steam. The Yoni steam itself last for about 20 - 30 minutes, or until you feel you've had enough, and then you can  lay down and relax more. I usually feel so relaxed after, that I need to allow my body some integration time.  You can also purchase some herbs from me for your own session at home. 

 

Disclaimer: I am not a herbalist. And even though I have worked with some basic herbs and homeopathics my whole life, I am not a specialized herbalist, nor do I claim to be one, but I know a few basic herbal combinations that can be good for certain ailments. As always, consult your physician or dr for more direction if need be. 

And do NOT Yoni Steam after your ovulation if you are trying to become pregnant!

Feel free to email me if you'd like to know more about benefits and contraindications.

Cost: €75 - 1.5 hour 

WOMEN'S YOGA WITH FOCUS ON PELVIS AND HEART

I teach Women's Yoga Classes with focus on Heart & Pelvis. During these classes we focus on tuning in with our bodies, our breath, our pelvic bowl and our jaws, and find a way to deep dive into our Being. These classes are an opportunity for you to slow down. To feel what you and your body need and to allow yourself to find the pace that soothes you, your body and your nervous system. I am very much into Sisterhood and my classes are geared towards bringing women together. You don't have to be physically together to feel connected! We as women have a great way of uplifting each other and ourselves when we gather in circle. Magic often is effortlessly produced! 

These classes can be attended also via Zoom. Send me an email if you want to be included and I can send you a tikkie/venmo link. . 

 

* Yoga Classes:

Every Saturday morning at 10 am on Zoom.

Class Pass: €108

 
Womb Wisdom & Cycle Synching

One of the things that truly spark my interest and my continued effort in the work I do with Women, is the womb and ovary Wisdom every woman has. Sometimes women ask: "I had a hysterectomy, or removal of my ovaries, can I still connect with them?" YES! Just because the actual organ is no longer there, the Energy Imprint is VERY much still present. So yes, you can definitely connect. And also women whom have had a sexual transition, they can connect with the Gaia Womb energy within themselves now also. It is all Energy! And for women, the Creative Energy, also known as Kundalini/Life Force Energy, lies at the root of her uterus, IN/AT her cervix! When I heard this my heart jumped! This Kundalini Energy is our Creative Life Force Energy, so it makes total sense that our Womb holds our Creative Fire and all we manifest. 

My favorite book on this topic is by Tami Lynn Kent, author of The Wild Feminine. A book I highly recommend to any woman who wants to explore her Womb, Ovary and Pelvic Wisdom, including self massages (see below).

 

The other books I recommend are "Yoni Shakti" by Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and "The Tao Tantric Arts for Women" by Minke De Vos. An other amazing book is "Womb Awakening" -  Bernard and Seren Azra.

And there there is the Cycle Synching Method, created by Alisa Vitti! Cycle Synching is a wonderful tool for your health and healing in general and also for PMS, fertility, Healthy cycles, etc. The book is Flo Living by Alisa Vitti, and if you have diagnosed issues (endo, fibroids, low libido, etc) get the book by her called Woman Code. 

On a healing note: If you suffer from pcos, fibroids, endometriosis, inflammation of the uterus IPT is extremely helpful and I also found an herbal tea combo that can support you in combination with castor oil packs. Let's talk about what could help you.

 
Self Massages
A wonderful way to love, support, heal and connect with yourself is by doing your own Yoni/Vagina Self Massages. I recommend you get the book Wild Feminine by Tami Lynn Kent, founder of Holistic Pelvic CareTM from the USA, where she explains how to give these to yourself and also the book contains wonderful journeys and excercises you can do yourself. When you have received a treatment from me, you will also be more capable of doing them yourself, plus I can give you a handout as well. 
 
Benefits of IPT® Sessions and  Self Massages are: 
  • Deeper connection with yourself and very grounding and relaxing.
  • Learning about what you feel on a deeper more conscious level
  • Understanding the anatomy of your Yoni, Vagina, pelvis
  • Bringing Consciousness to an area that you may not be so close with
  • Increasing Cellular blood flow by stretching the fascia and so also
  • Rejuvenating and toning of your Vaginal Muscles and again, relaxing and toning the Pelvis
  • Helping with trigger points that may be present
  • Releasing of (long) held emotions or patterns
  • Receiving Wisdom from your Pelvic Bowl   
 
In summary:
It improves your overall pelvic muscular health, strength, and vitality, enabling these muscles to enhance their function as your core structural support. This can also increase your sensations and muscular tone in your vagina, as well as enhance sexual arousal and enjoyment.
With our IPT® sessions we work with these aspects as well. We can encounter any feeling when we work on your Pelvis and it is normal to have a range of emotions visit you. This is normal and to be expected and we very much welcome it. 
I often give Yoni/Vagina Self Massage as homework as it not only integrates our sessions together, but as said, it increases your Pelvic Self Awareness even more. I email you a handout after our session with your Pelvic "How to Self Massage" guidelines :)
