what is muliebrity manifesto?

That women deserve better healthcare. That feeling comfort, safety and joy in our bodies is not only attainable, but our birthright.



  • That having fears, concerns or problems dismissed by healthcare providers as 'part of being a woman/ having babies/getting older' is unacceptable.


  • That a knowledgeable woman is an empowered woman.


  • That the healthcare providers who serve women need better education; information that is up to date, evidence based, compassionate and tailored to the individual woman and all the women we serve.


"My goal is to fill your treatment toolbox with up to date evidence based strategies - that work!"

My Aim

I want you to feel competent and confident so no matter what issue your female clients come to you with - pain, bladder or bowel issues, menstrual, maternal or menopausal problems - you have the resources here to help

MODULE ONE

All About Menstrual Health-

What's happening, how to know if something's wrong AND what we can do about it!

MODULE TWO

All About Maternal Health-

Again, starting with the hormonal changes but then taking that through real life- how can we effectively manage issues like pelvic girdle pain, diastasis, postnatal pelvic health and helping women live well during and after their maternal journeys?



MODULE THREE

All About Menopausal Health-

This is a huge topic but I want to break this down into super-practical, manageable and actionable steps! We'll go from peri to post menopause, looking at hormones, musculoskeletal and pelvic health, optimizing metabolic function, banishing brain fog and fatigue and there's a bonus lecture on female sexual health at menopause.

NOW ONLINE

This is a BIG course- and I make no apologies!!! We cover Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome, Vulvar Pain, Sexual Health, Menstrual Health/Dysfunction, Endometriosis...and more.

Did I mention there's also a section on Female Colorectal Function and Dysfunction, covering constipation, IBS, IBD and anorectal pain drivers?

Did I also mention that as a special thank you, I'm including the Female Pelvic Anatomy Course FOR FREE?!

ARE YOU CONFIDENT IN TREATING YOUR FEMALE PELVIC ONCOLOGY CLIENTS?

Do you confidently understand the effects of treatment for gynae, bowel and bladder cancers?

With increasing awareness of the importance of ERAS, do you have the skills to take you from prehab to rehab, including manual therapy, exercise prescription and lifestyle strategies?

If you are passionate about helping women live well during & after pelvic cancer, then this might be the course for you!


DID YOU KNOW...

Women are FAR more likely to deal with issues such as posterior pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions, anal continence (hello childbirth!) and IBS (which affects TWICE as many women as men?)

That the Gut/Brain Axis, which is modulated in large part by the Vagus information super highway is VERY responsive to changes in nutrition, stress management and some surprising exercise strategies?

That medications for conditions like Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Inflammatory Bowel Disease may be good at suppressing symptoms…but lasting relief (and maybe disease remission) comes from evidence based lifestyle strategies? (*not saying don’t take meds, but I am saying…use the evidence to help live better and calm down distressing drivers…and maybe then discuss the need for meds with your dr)

That understanding the coccyx is VITAL for female pelvic health – and there’s so much we can do to make the coccyx calm down with external as well as internal strategies

My latest course, Bowel Health & Women’s Health explores all of this and more.



THIS IS THE COURSE I WISH I HAD WHEN I STARTED TREATING WOMEN WITH BREAST CANCER

So much information is given to women during treatment for breast cancer...but not enough attention is being paid to optimizing recovery, until now!

This course will fill your toolbox so you can work with women on their breast cancer journey safely and confidently, with a strong focus on the treatments, their side effects and an integrated approach to bringing manual therapy, exercise prescription and a biopsychosocial approach under one course umbrella.


SO THIS COURSE IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT...

The first module is about the background info- why is back pain different for women? But then we quickly move into a six week movement strategy programme- that comes with a marketing powerpoint so it's just about ready to go for your business! In addition, there's the Better Breathing coursework- if you're a nerd like me who likes the background on the anatomy of physiology of breathing, and why breathing is important in the management of back pain... AS WELL as the manual therapy and movement strategies I've used over 3 decades working in rehab. It's an entirely external course so hopefully it will really help fill your toolbox for one of the leading causes of disability globally...and why women's back pain is different!
