Integral Pelvic Therapy works on different layers:
- The mental layer: Next to the extensive intake and the informed consent, at the first actual session, there will be a talk between the practitioner and you. What is being discussed are the pieces that are not in balance in your life and how you can be coached in this.
- The physical layer: Through soft and precise external and internal techniques, the fascia and muscles in the pelvis are examined, smoothed out and adhesions solved. Trigger points are addressed, as well as other tension patterns, allowing the pelvis to function in balance again. As a result, instead of a numb or painful feeling, sensitivity will return allowing the natural selfhealing capacity of the body to work its wonders.
- The emotional layer: It often happens that emotions are stored in the body, especially in the vulnerable area of the pelvis. IPT lets the emotions be felt so that they can be processed and/or released.
- The energetic layer: Energy can be felt like a kind of electrical charge in your body. If a blockage occurs in this, it feels like a “stiffening” in the tissue. After treatment, the energy can flow freely throughout the body. Women can have the feeling to “shine from the inside”.
- The spiritual layer: Sometimes there is an unprocessed event in your life or in the family line that can have an impact in your system. By using bodywork combined with visualization techniques these events can be given a place whereby the balance is restored. This can result in a feeling of more energy and vitality.
