Janna here…  Let’s connect!

Join us today as we Take 5 to connect with breath, that vital first step in connecting to ourselves,  connecting our breath with our pelvic floor. Yes, right here, right now, right where you are, Take 5!

Sit or lie down comfortably with eyes closed….

  • You will need at least 5 minutes of quiet time…
  • Inhale slowly through your nose to the count of 5…
  • Hold breath to the count of 5…
  • Exhale through your nose (or slightly parted lips) to the count of 5
  • Rest your breath to the count of 5
  • Do this whole exercise (often referred to as box breathing) 5 times total.
  • While you are doing this exercise-
  • Imagine your body relaxing from head to toe-
  • getting heavier as the muscles let go-
  • feeling totally supported and safe….

You may imagine a calming place in your mind, maybe the beach, the mountains, or anyplace you feel safe, joyful, calm, relaxed….

Repeat phrases quietly in your mind such as:

“I am calm”

“I am relaxed”

“I am in control”

“I can do this”

When you are ready to come back, take a few deep breaths and simply open your eyes, feeling refreshed, renewed, and rejuvenated

Practice this technique every day

Give yourself at least 5 minutes of peace and relaxation,

The more you practice this, the better you will feel!

Why is connecting with our breath so important?

Our diaphragm (breathing muscle) works in sync with our pelvic floor. Often we are given a pelvic related diagnosis with limited options.  But here at Moment of Truth PT, we focus on issues that may be contributing to the symptoms you may have; removing structural barriers and scar tissue present within the abdomen and pelvic floor that can be contributing to pelvic symptoms or improper breathing mechanics.  We use visceral and fascial techniques to reduce restrictions, improve circulation and decrease inflammation. We then work with you to bring breath and pelvic floor back in sync.  Click HERE for the most common video we send clients when they start with us.

And we provide the hope many are missing…the hope of experiencing healthy pelvic function, which means no pain, no leaking pee, no constipation and yes to great sex.

Please reach out with any questions – we love hearing back from you!
