Integral Pelvic Therapy®

IPT® is a safe and accessible therapeutic form of bodywork, specifically designed for Women and anyone  that has a vulva/yoni/vagina or neo-cervix:  IPT® is a complementary, holistic, body-oriented therapy that aims to restore health and natural balance in the pelvis. IPT® sessions increase the cellular flow in your pelvic bowl via specific fascia and triggerpoint release techniques (which we can apply externally on the vulva or/and internally in the vagina/pelvic floor) which will improve your pelvic muscular health, strength and overall vitality.  

IPT® can be beneficial if you experience: 

  • Heavy PMS

  • Numb feeling or pain during sex ​

  • Insensitivity in/or around the pelvis

  • Chronic bladder infections

  • Chronic Pelvic Pain (such as Vulvodynia, Vestibulodynia, Vaginismus, Dyspareunia)

  • Sexual trauma/Birthing Trauma/Trauma after an accident/surgery/any violation of your boundaries

  • Organ prolapse (which can be addressed and sometimes healed depending on the degree or prolapse)

  • Fascia limitations due to scar tissue in and around the pelvic area (also belly birth scars, and any pelvic surgery)

  • Hysterectomy/oophorectomy  (partial or full) - and wanting to work with the pelvis after removal (know that the energetic imprint of these organs always remain with you, so we can still do Womb and Ovary Journeys and Healing with them!)

  • Jaw problems/Teeth Grinding/Pain in jaw

  • Disconnect with your body/pelvis

  • Fears in relation to your own sexual pleasure/your body/or (any kind of) sexual intimacy

IPT® may support you towards: 

  • Reconnecting with your pelvis and the sensations that live there

  • A feeling of spacioussness in your body especially in your pelvis

  • Reducing pain, numbness, nerve pain and stress inside your pelvis/around vulva

  • Relief of PMS symptoms

  • Regaining clarity in feeling and establishing your boundaries,  not only in your pelvis, but in your life.

  • Experiencing joy, ease, pleasure and a renewed sense flow in your pelvis, and often also in your life and sex life

  • Experiencing more appreciaton for your body, your self, your sexuality and what your needs are

  • Feeling more grounded, alive and energized and an overal new curiosity in what makes you tick and feel happy

How IPT® works with Informed Consent and Embodied Consent:

One of the main pillars of IPT®, and this is where we really stand out with our work, is that we work with an Informed and Embodied Consent . This means that during  our sessions a safe container is created, through a continuous communication process between you and me. I will ask you for example: "The next step could be that I could lay my hands on your tummy. Do you want me to do this?" This is the Informed Consent part, where you are informed about any next steps, and where you get to decide if you want this or not. Then when you say "Yes" (or no!), I will ask you: "Let me know when you are ready for this touch". And this is the Embodied Constent Part of IPT®. This allows you to get into a deep connection with your body, and remaining fully in charge of your own process.  This way you are your own authority and your own guide. Many find this process incredibly transforming and profoundly helps you start to feeling safe (again) in your body. And this is so important, this feeling of safety and trust, in order for healing to happen. So, 

IPT® works on several layers: 
1. Mental Layer: this is where the intake is for, to see if you really want to do take this journey. And because I make a 'report' of each session and share with you what happened, what you experienced and what you went through during our session, it gives you time and a moment to process things more deeply on a cognitive level. 

2. Physical Layer: we work with fascia stretching and with triggerpoint releases, allowing more bloodflow in the entire pelvic bowl, and this has an effect not only on your pelvis, but often on your whole body. IPT® is also very relaxing! 
3. Emotional Layer: We store emotions in our cells and in our body, and in those so called 'triggerpoints'. And with this work, they can be seen, felt, heard and given the chance to transform.
4. Energetic Layer: We are not just the body. We are so much more. Energy is everwhere, and when moving energy, you can feel a release, a feeling of "lighter" and also more "fuller" and "expansive".  
5. Spiritual Layer: Many things can shift within our Being, but also on levels we can't quite see or feel. The spiritual side of our life can also be touched by this work. Helping you find new ways to implement your experiences, and for some also profoundly change their li lives. Especially boundaries, speaking ones truth and discovering what you really want, are some amazing 'side effects' of IPT®.

Even though I so far have only worked with cis-gender women in my practice, know that anyone with a yoni, vulva, vagina or neo-cervix is welcome. If you have undergone female gender affirming surgery (and thus will have scar tissue in and around your pelvis), and/or want to perhaps connect with your (new) sexuality in a deeper way, IPT® can help with this.

So please feel welcome, and please feel free to call or email me with any questions.
