Common to many women post birth, or later in life diastasis recti can be described as the stretching, weakening and dysfunction of the front and sides of the abdominal muscles and includes the connective tissues and fascia of these muscles.
If you have had a baby, no matter how long ago, and you have Diastasis ( a separation of your abdominal muscles) or you feel disconnected to your core or unable to shift a mummy tummy then the Diastasis programme is the one you have been waiting for.
This programme helps you to help yourself to not only a better looking belly but one that FUNCTIONS and supports your Pelvic, Core and overall health. This programme is NOT ONE SIZE FITS ALL!
- Are you a woman with a small diastasis?
- Do you have a feeling of disconnection or weakness with your core?
- Do you experience pelvic floor weakness that may have resulted in leaking when you laugh, sneeze, lift or jump?
- Are you a woman with a mummy tummy that you can’t seem to shift?
- Do you have ‘lower back pain’ issues that you’ve been told is due to a ‘weak Core’?
- Are you a woman worried about abdominal separation and general stomach weakness?
- Are you attending exercise classes already but can’t seem to lose the mummy tummy and unsure about what to do?
- Have you have seen a clinician about a low level Prolapse and been told to ‘do your Pelvic Floor exercises’ as part of your management strategy?
- Are you wanting to improve the way your belly looks?
- Are you a woman wanting to reconnect to your Pelvic Floor so that you both FEEL and FUNCTION better?
- Do you want to heal your Diastasis, improve your Core function, have a better looking belly and a Pelvic Floor that does its job?
Healing a Diastasis Recti is a whole body issue; it’s not just about exercise, it’s not just about the woman’s belly and it’s not just about the gap!
This programme will help you connect the dots between your breathing, posture and possible backpain and Pelvic Floor dysfunction. Healing a Diastasis is so much more than a few crunches and a fitness class. Healing and returning to full function and fitness starts from within.
A deep assessment is required to start with, it’s extensive and thorough but this ensures you get the help you deserve and need because we fully understand your health journey and what you hope to achieve. Once you’ve been screened and it’s agreed that the programme is the right fit for you, you’ll enter the world of Holistic Core Restore® where your coach will take you through the Diastasis Recti Healing Programme which is a mix of Breath Rehab and improving breathing strategies, Nutrition for Healing, Core Rehab Functional Exercise and Core and Pelvic Health Education and postural alignment. All of these need to be considered BEFORE we apply exercise and load. Your exercises are then progressed for this bespoke one-to-one programme.
You’re provided with all the exercise kit you need plus our unique Client Education Booklet to help you really understand the process and the facts about Diastasis Recti and your education about your body is not only ongoing but exactly what you need to do to be successful is 100% clear.
The programme has a strong focus on healing nutrition with simple but highly effective strategies for helping you get the specific nutrients required to heal your Diastasis into your diet easily and without fuss. The length of the programme will be determined by your progress and the time frame suggested by your Coach with appointments spread over months rather than weeks. This offering is ALWAYS utterly bespoke to you simply because a Diastasis is as individual as the woman experiencing it.
100% we heal from the INSIDE OUT! Learning how to rest and de-stress are vital elements to the programme. The high cortisol levels associated with the Post Natal period and other life phases like Perimenopause and into Menopause and beyond also retard healing and can cause you to hold fat around your middle.
Let me guide you in a process that will improve the way your belly looks, feels and works, rid yourself of back pain, reconnect to your Pelvic Floor so that you both FEEL and FUNCTION better.
If the above information really speaks to you, don’t delay, prioritize YOU! We look forward to having you on this programme!
