This is a beginner- to moderate-level conditioning class designed to strengthen your body, increase endurance and help you de-stress. The class begins with exercises to increase your flexibility by improving your range of motion, followed by a full-body workout to strengthen arms and legs, tighten core muscles and improve cardiovascular endurance. Each class ends with a relaxation sequence that will leave you feeling refreshed and refocused.

Exercise Away Urinary Incontinence Without Kegels

Kegels hasn’t worked for you? Learn why and what to do about it. If you have a history of total joint replacement, injury to a leg, or surgery that required an assistive device to help you walk, you may have lost the function needed to maintain a strong, healthy pelvic floor. You can’t consciously squeeze muscles and resolve incontinence. You need to strengthen the muscles that support your bladder! This class will teach you how. 

Kegels exercises are only the first sentence in a whole book about how to effectively address incontinence issues. Consciously working the sphincter muscles in an attempt to control leakage is useless for strengthening your pelvic floor. 

Since supporting your bladder as it fills with urine and gets heavier is what your pelvic floor must do to keep you continent, isn’t it critical to strengthen your pelvic floor? You may be asking, “How do I do that?” This class provides your answer. Learn from an expert in movement and pelvic floor function who has been helping patients and clients resolve chronic issues for decades. Learn: pelvic floor anatomy, how your hips connect to your pelvic floor, and how to use the Pelvicore Pro to strengthen the right muscles and support your bladder effectively. Develop the skills to achieve healthy pelvic floor function for a lifetime!

You will need to purchase a RED Pelvicore Pro from www.PelvicSolutions.com to perform the movements taught in this class. Choose SILVER if you are strong and athletic. Yes, athletes can have weak pelvic floors, too!

MELT for Pain, Grip, Balance and Gait!

MELT™ can improve your golf swing or any swinging sport like tennis, or baseball. It can also improve your balance, how you walk, and even help with neuropathy, carpal tunnel, and plantar fasciitis! If you have pain or decreased sensation it is most likely that your neurofascial system is in need of repair. Diet and exercise are important, but they don’t address this all-important system. 

Learning how to decompress the joints in your feet and hands can change how your knees, low back, and neck feel as well as improve your grip, your balance, and how you walk. There is even a MELT™ 50-second facelift! Taught by an expert who has seen success with her patients regarding many issues (neuropathy, balance impairment, chronic pain). 

The cost of the three-class series is $65 per student. A MELT™ Hand & Foot Treatment Kit is required for class use and can be purchased at www.meltmethod.com.
