If I was to write this review using only one word – it would be “perfection”. Lindsay at Embrace Wellness patiently listened to my concerns and was able to address each issue promptly and correctly. After two appointments and treatments, my pain is completely gone. She explained everything clearly to allow me to understand why I was experiencing the pain and discomfort that had been occurring for 2 months. Embrace Wellness is worth the drive from Calgary – trust me! Thank you Lindsay!!

Nicole is an absolute GODDESS! I kid you not, my entire life is absolutely changed for the better! I have gotten a couple of prenatal massages from her and have already booked more. I can’t believe I waited so long! If you’re looking for a LIFE CHANGING MASSEUSE, I HIGHLY recommend Nicole. She is so personal and really knows what she’s doing!

Lindsay is amazing! I have been visiting her during my pregnancy. I was suffering from major pelvic pain in my 2nd trimester and she fixed me! She is determined to make you feel better, which I can attest that she did. I walk out of her appointments feeling better immediately. I cannot recommend her enough. I am so grateful for her and her amazing knowledge and care. I also received a prenatal massage from Chantal and it was the best prenatal massage I’ve had so far. Thank you ladies so much for your amazing care and attention.

I have had lower back issues most of my life and Sciatica for several years. I work labor-intensive jobs, and since I have been going to massage therapy and osteotherapy adjustments with Chantal Harrison the past few years, I finally feel that I am getting the treatment I need. I feel like a new person, fully healed and relaxed after each session. She is professional, kind, and personable. She always identifies the problem muscles and joints and demonstrates the skill to alleviate the pain and tension. Thank you kindly for your amazing services!

Heal Your Pelvic Floor - Pelvic Health & Physiotherapy

Pregnancy Care

Prepare your body for birth. Learn how to improve or maintain your fitness safely throughout your pregnancy. We can help reduce your back, hip, or sacroiliac joint pain. We’ll teach you what your body will need after birth so you can go into labor with confidence. We can teach you how to push to open your pelvic floor and discuss delivery positioning and perineal massage. 

Post-Partum Care

At Embrace Pelvic Health Physio and Massage, we help people heal after birth by taking a holistic approach to your health. We look at your pelvic floor, posture, breathing, and strength to help you return to activities you love. We also help birthing people alleviate back pain, safely return to fitness, have pain free and pleasurable intercourse, and stop leaking. Checking your abdomen for a diastasis rectus abdominis will also assist in putting you on your path to recovery. We will have you achieve your functional goals. 

Breastfeeding Assessments

Physiotherapist are known as the movement experts, and while physiotherapy treatment is not the first to come to mind with breastfeeding- breastfeeding is a mechanical skill for both baby and mom. I am specially trained in assessing and identifying infant factors that contribute to breastfeeding difficulties such as tongue tie, torticollis, and tight jaw musculature, all of which have the potential to cause latch difficulties. I am also trained to treat maternal issues that can arise with breastfeeding such as Mastitis, and breast/nipple soreness/pain.

Pediatric Care

Our Pelvic Health Physiotherapist is highly trained in treating Pediatric Pelvic Health concerns. She offers: Breastfeeding Assessments, concerns regarding head shape, torticollis, developmental milestones, bedwetting & constipation.

Pelvic Pain

We treat all forms of pelvic pain including pain with intercourse, bladder pain, pain with sitting, tailbone pain, and abdominal discomfort. Stress and trauma can manifest in your pelvic floor. We can help resolve pain by teaching you pelvic floor relaxation, breathing mechanics, posture assessment and correction, manual therapy such as tension release, and strengthening. 

Bladder and Bowel Concerns

Leaking isn’t all about kegels and pelvic floor muscle strength. It’s about posture, coordinating your pelvic floor muscles to work at the right time, breathing, correctly using your abdominal muscles, and timing.

Constipation can be caused by many body functions from beginning to end sort to speak. The pelvic floor can be a cause or contributing factor. Many people suffer from not knowing how to push to move their bowels, accidentally squeezing their pelvic floor muscles, and sitting with incorrect posture all leading to constipation. We will teach you the correct habits and techniques to get your bowels moving regularly.

Prolapse

We treat (and help to prevent!) bladder prolapse (cystocele), bowel prolapse (rectocele), and uterine prolapse. We can help you prevent or recover from surgery. Pelvic organ prolapse can affect your activities, how you feel about your body, and your life. We’ll use the best evidence to help you support your pelvic organs and get back to what you love. Healing prolapse isn’t all about kegels. We’ll assess you from head to toe from your posture, breathing, pelvic floor and whole body strength, and mechanics.
