Psychosomatic Approach to Pelvic Healing

Summary of show:

Healing from pelvic pain and dysfunction can be complex and multifaceted. A piece of the puzzle that is often left out is what is going on in the brain. Alicia Patterson deep dives into her psychosomatic approach to pelvic health. The science is clear- our mind and our body is connected so we must address both. She discusses the idea of “body armour” and how the emotions can show up in our tissues and how we can reconnect to our bodies in order to find healing and vitality. The journey to vitality walks us through shame, fear, and other emotions that most of us want to shove deep down and not deal with, yet that journey through the difficult emotions can bring us into that space of wellness and vitality.
