No matter how long ago you experience a C-Section type incision and for whatever reason, if you are experiencing discomfort, the Burrell Method For Holistic C-Section Recovery will probably give you the freedom that you thought wasn’t possible ever again.
It wasn’t until I experienced extremely poor healing post two C-Sections (Uterine Fibroid Myomectomy and Hysterectomy) that I suddenly began to realize how many women have unsatisfactory results and unanswered questions in this area and good information very hard to find and with over a decade and a half spent working and tutoring in fitness/wellness for the Pregnant & the Post Natal client, I decided the create the service that I wish I had had access to in those early days of my own recovery.
In the UK nearly 1/4 of births are via C-Section. and many more women experience the procedure throughout their lives for other gynaecological procedures yet there is no real guidance on how to heal successfully from such a major procedure and successfully reconnect to the core never mind deal with the soft-tissue issues (adhesions and scar tissue) that arise from these types of procedures.
And thanks to the continual rise in gynaecological conditions that require entry to the Pelvic Cavity via the C-Section procedure and the rise in Hysterectomy for the menopausal woman, the need for an holistic programme that addresses the need for a growing and sizeable portion of any countries female population is way overdue.
For many women who experience slow, poor or painful healing, the appearance of and lack of ability to connect with their abdomen and Pelvic Floor post C-Section is a huge concern, so as a soft-tissue therapist, Post Natal fitness and wellness educator, the help of some very learned colleagues and as someone who has managed to make sense of the procedure and how finally, to recover well. I created this Holistic programme for C-Section Recovery.
And with not a sit-up in sight, this is all about healing INSIDE OUT! The emphasis is squarely on these fundamental pillars that help us to create a BESPOKE programme for you! No one-size-fits-all here!
‘CAN DO’ strategies for helping you REST and DE-STRESS. The high Cortisol levels associated with the Post Natal period also retard healing and cause you to hold fat around your middle. This programme helps you to help yourself to not only a better looking belly but one that FUNCTIONS and supports your Pelvic, Core and overall health.
