Holistic Pelvic Care™ 

By: Dr. Bella

Are you are seeking a more integrated approach to connection between your physical body and a deeper wisdom to heal and nurture yourself? If you answered YES to this question then you would most definitely benefit from Holistic Pelvic Care. Holistic Pelvic Care™ (HPC) is a technique designed to restore physical, emotional, and energetic imbalances that are rooted in the female pelvis. This modality addresses a woman as a whole; Body, Mind and Spirit.

With all of the advances in or Modern Western Medicine, Women’s Health still only consists of an annual pap and breast exam. Since women are not advised to give their pelvic bowl regular attention, internal awareness is often lacking. Tapping into feminine wisdom, receptivity, and intimately connecting with our root vitality that is located in the pelvic bowl (vagina, ovaries, and uterus) allows us to reclaim our space in our bodies and in our world.  By restoring balance in the pelvic bowl, we as women can establish a more abundant creative flow in the body and then into all areas of our lives. HPC is a beautiful compliment to Woman's Health and Preventative Medicine. 

HPC was developed by Tami Kent, a physical therapist and author in Portland, Oregon. After working for two decades in Women's Physical Therapy as her specialty, she began to notice and map out the energetics of the pelvic bowl and the correlating imbalances and diseases that woman suffer in this area of their bodies when stagnation occurs and is not addressed properly. By using gentle internal vaginal massage techniques combined with simple breath work, this innovative therapy has proven effective in enriching and encompassing not only the physical but also the emotional and energetic aspects of womanhood. 

Just as other parts of our bodies hold tension and pain, so too often do we as women suffer with pelvic floor tension and stress. We undergo many life changes in our pelvic bowl such as our monthly hormonal and menstrual cycles, child-birthing, postpartum and menopause, which all can take a toll on the health and balance of our pelvic bowl. HPC is beneficial for any type of pain or trauma to the pelvic region, PMS, menstrual irregularities, dysmennorrhea, fibroids, fertility issues, cesarean recovery, painful intercourse, incontinence, vaginitis, ovarian cysts, low libido, urinary incontinence and sexual trauma. It is especially important in postpartum care to restore physical and emotional balance to the pelvic bowl.  

A woman's root is her center of creation, power and where she births all of her creative ideas from.  Stagnation in the pelvic bowl not only leads to physical discomfort and disease but also energetic and creative lack of flow and fulfillment.  Her Spirit becomes stifled and she has a lack of energy to create her dreams into reality. By clearing the stagnation in our pelvic bowl we free up our creative center so we can live the life we envision for ourselves! Energetic tensions and blocks in our root can prevent the full expression of who we are as Spirit.  When we take the time to reconnect our breath and awareness to our creative center and heal in a gentle holistic way we often times regain a confidence and wisdom that resides in this region of our bodies.

Although every woman is different, a typical session begins with a detailed intake about current issues you wish to address and your medical history.  WIth my back round as a midwife and acupuncture physician, I will ask you specific questions related to your constitution and do an assessment of your pulse and tongue as part of the intake process. The hands-on portion takes place on a massage table with some light acupuncture, detailed physical pelvic work and guided visualizations. 

The number of treatments will vary depending on your response to the first session and how chronic your condition is. It is not uncommon for women to remember or become aware of deep emotions regarding various aspects of their lives. Since this work is designed to restore physical and energetic imbalances in combination with the emotional, it may be necessary for a referral to a trained counselor. If this is the case, you will be referred to a trusted specialist. Additionally, herbal and nutritional formulas and/or lifestyle suggestions may be prescribed to aid your healing process.

Healing the Sexual Wound

Now more than ever we are collectively calling out, as humanity, to heal our buried sexual wounds. All we have to do is look at the front page of the newspaper or turn on the TV and watch the news to see what is happening. The lights are being turned on and we are seeing all that has been hidden in the dark. We are living in the time of the great deluge, the great unveiling of all that has been kept secret for way too long.

The sexual wound of humanity must be addressed and healed by each and every one of us as we enter into the new age of enlightenment. No more secrets. All will be revealed in the light. It is time to heal humanities collective sexual wound and I believe a great place to start the healing journey is with a yoni/root steam and a womb grief ritual.

Your womb is your center of creation where you birth your babies and as well your intentions into being. By holding negative energy in your sacred space, you can cause many female health issues. Stagnant painful energy in your pelvic bowl from past trauma such as sexual assault or abuse often turns itself into a physical disease.

The word “Yoni” is another word you can adopt to use for your female anatomy that truly honors your Vagina. Yoni is a Sanskrit word for ‘temple’ and that’s exactly what our vaginas are; a temple. As women begin to claim back their power and share their stories with one another, it has served as a catalyst to the healing process. The physical, emotional and spiritual cleansing of our yoni is especially essential in this day and age.

A Yoni/root steam bath is an ancient healing method and a lost art that is making its way back to the forefront of our modern society. It is so important to heal and cleanse our Yoni’s regularly, ESPECIALLY if you have been violated in the past or are holding onto negative emotional states. Also if you have had multiple partners it would be helpful to do a yoni/root steam bath to rid your body of negative energy and restore her to her pristine innocence… You can then move forward with clarity and confidence as you choose your partner carefully. Sex is a sacred act in which you and your partner are exchanging ‘life-force’ energy and DNA. It is vital you both have good intentions and the exchange is a loving one.

If you have ever experienced sexual trauma, or have negative emotions surrounding your sexuality then a yoni/root steam would be a great place to start your healing journey. In confidentiality, if you contact me, I will give you the gift of a yoni/root steam and womb meditation, at no charge. Allow me to offer this gift to you. My teacher, Rosita Arvigo, always says that the only time it is appropriate to give free services to others is if there was something that was taken from them by another such as sexual misconduct, rape or abuse. I agree with this statement and make a public announcement to invite all who read this article and have been a victim of abuse to come and heal and give yourself this precious gift, or rather allow yourself to come and begin your journey to wholeness once again.

I have taken a vow to leave no wound without balm and no shadow unloved.


This is your moment for true healing on a profound level. Your yoni is your feminine crown and it deserves your upmost attention and healing energy especially now more than ever! Let us rise to this occasion and heal ourselves. As we do so, it creates a ripple affect.

You are the stone that is thrown into the pond and as you heal the ripples of the waters of your healing go out into the world and touch others so they can do the same. May we all aspire to our greatest healing and be like that stone thrown into the pond creating a ripple effect around us…. and may our ripple turn into a wave…. and then into a tsunami of love and healing grace.

Yours in true love and gratitude,

Dr. Bella
