Increasing awareness about the role of pelvic floor dysfunction in a variety of conditions calls for an expanded role for massage therapy. Chronic pelvic pain, urinary frequency, postpartum pelvic issues and sexual dysfunction, just to name a few, may all have musculoskeletal components that massage therapists can work with externally. In this 2-day workshop we will learn simple, non-invasive techniques for safely and effectively treating clients with a range of chronic pelvic issues. The workshop will start with a review of pelvic region anatomy and assessment. We will learn detailed pelvic floor anatomy and consider the many conditions/diagnoses that may affect, or be associated with, compromised pelvic health. Most of the two days will be devoted to learning and practicing techniques for treating the pelvic area, as well as the abdomen, adductors, coccyx, and other soft tissue work related to pelvic health.
