Benefits of Pfilates

This “deep core” foundation, and knowing what muscles to engage, will insure greater benefit with abdominal, weight training etc.that follows. Like any other exercise, PFMT needs to be incorporated into your regular fitness program”.

Stress Urinary Incontinence:   PFMT is 80-85% successful in the recovery of stress, urge and mixed UI during and after pregnancy, in teenage girls, and athletes during strenuous exercise.

Pre-natal:   Builds strong healthy pelvic environment for baby and you.

Fertility:   Increases blood flow and nerve supply to uterus and pelvic floor muscles

Menstrual Health:   Improved circulation to ovaries and uterus, and relaxes PF muscles

Pregnancy:   Strengthens TVA (natural girdle) for tummy, improves posture, stabilizes pelvis to provide support during pregnancy, reduces sciatic and lower back pain, allows for quicker recovery to your pre-natal shape, improves balance, during labor allowing for relaxation of PF muscles.

Hormones:   PFMT stabilizes pelvis and reduces risk of injury from release of relaxin and progesterone hormones which prepare the body for delivery by relaxing the ligaments and joints during and up to 6 mos. after pregnancy. 

Post-partum:   PFMT should be started 24-28 hours after childbirth. Pre-existing strong deep core muscles will speed up your recovery.

Sexual Satisfaction:   Aides through increased motor and nerve supply to vital areas.

Pelvic floor Pain:   Increases circulation and teaches relaxation of PFM, treatment in “levator myalgia” and “vulvodynia”

Pelvic Organ Prolapse:   Provides strong core support for pelvic organs and abdominal connective tissue, and may prevent need for surgery.
