Holistic Pelvic Care™
Using a gentle intervaginal massage technique combined with restorative breathwork tools, Dr. Anne Dericks realigns your pelvis physically and energetically. This process, for all stages of a woman’s life, enhances the flow of pelvic organ energy and restores your pelvic bowl as the creative center of your female body. Holistic Pelvic Care™ is a technique used to support fertility, aid healing postpartum and treat pelvic concerns, from pain and urine leakage to sexual dysfunction and lack of libido. It differs from conventional physical therapy or body work in that it supports connection to the pelvis and restores balance in the pelvis on a physical, emotional and energetic level. Holistic Pelvic Care™ supports connection to the body while bringing greater awareness and attention to the Root Chakra. In this way, Holistic Pelvic Care™ is used for women of all ages as part of preventative medicine, in the treatment of physical symptoms or to simply bring a woman a greater sense of connection to her pelvic bowl, female organs and creative energy source.
Holistic Pelvic Care™ was developed by Tami Lynn Kent, women’s health physical therapist and author of Wild Feminine and Mothering from your Center. After working with the pelvic floor, she recognized the medicine available for each woman located right inside her very own body.
This technique involves a combination of gentle internal body work techniques and intra-vaginal assessment with breath work and visualization tools to encourage balanced muscular strength, circulation and energy flow in the pelvic bowl. The pelvic massage is gentle and respectful, following the lead of the body. Though HPC is gentle, the effects are profound and women often notice a change with even one session.
Holistic Pelvic Care™ brings balance to your body.
Working with core balance and pelvic energy flow can assist you in times of transition (including menopause), accessing your joy, deepening your relationship to the feminine, and enhancing your overall creative vitality.
Pregnancy and Labor
Dr. Anne Dericks offers abdominal and pelvic floor body work to ease the aches and pains of pregnancy. While it is common for woman to be in pain in pregnancy, it is not normal and can be treated by addressing the facial layer which can easily become pulled, twisted or taut while growing a child. Labor can also be greatly eased and quickened by bringing the body into alignment and supporting smooth bone movement in the pelvis.
Dr. Anne Dericks offers a unique treatment for new mothers designed to revitalize the root after the birth of your baby. This treatment resolves post-partum symptoms such as pelvic pain, discomfort, or muscle weakness and greatly assists your overall healing. Women who have experienced trauma during childbirth find that restoring pelvic balance aids their recovery. Let yourself experience this nourishing treatment in the heart of your mothering place.
Healing for Miscarriage

The pelvic bowl is a women’s creative center. Holistic Pelvic Care upgrades core energy patterns and supports pelvic wellness to optimize the health and potential of this place in your body. Some have called it “fung shui” for the pelvis as we align the pelvic energy and enhance pelvic vitality.
