WHEN THINGS ARE DIFFICULT - IMBALANCES OF THE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM
Our bodies are incredibly resilient but unfortunately not invincible to the pressures of modern-day life.
Our hormonal system, which to a large extent governs the wellbeing of our reproductive system, is incredibly sensitive to stress - including the pace and stress of modern life. With the degradation of family and community support and the pressure for women to work, we have taken on many simultaneous roles resulting in higher stress levels and a reduction of nourishing time alone and with family and friends.
As soon as our bodies are effected by stress, trauma, poor diet or compromised health our reproductive system is effected. Basically, if something is going on with your cycles, your hormones or your womb health in any stage of life it is a sign that something is out of balance in your life at large.
Whether your cycles are irregular or there is pain or infertility, to bring your system back into balance will require help from your circle of support (acupuncturist, doctor, pelvic floor physio, holistic pelvic care provider, yoga teacher, counsellor etc..) as well as examination of your life and a reinclusion of practices and activites which nourish you and promote health / an explusion of those things that are walking you down the path of illness and dis-ease.
Most often women will need to include a daily practice of yoga and self care as well as regular exercise and a nourishing diet in order to rebuild and reclaim their pelvic health and feminine wellbeing.
Chaitanya works one on one with women to help them re-establish a healthy connection with their womb, increase pelvic vitality and move back to balance. As well as being a certified Women's Yoga teacher she is an experienced masseuse and Holistic Pelvic Care provider. If you would like to explore more about working together click here.
