Common pelvic floor issues may include ‘stress’ incontinence, meaning urine leakage with coughing, sneezing, lifting, jumping, etc. ‘Urge’ incontinence, meaning you have a strong urge and leak urine when making your way to the restroom, for example. Some may experience both. Many women experience pelvic organ prolapse or shifting of organs/tissue from their original location. There are also various types pelvic pain such as endometriosis, pelvic area scar tissue from C-section, other surgeries, episiotomy or tearing during child birth, nerve pain and pain with intercourse or sexual activity.

What is Occupational Therapy (OT)?

OT’s help their clients find function, balance and satisfaction in life. An OT focuses on physical, social and emotional well-being. Every person is completely unique and OT is a holistic therapeutic approach to health and wellness. An OT can help individuals engage in whatever matters most to them and meets their personal needs. For example; help moms strengthen the pelvic floor after child birth so that she can jump and play with her child or go to that jazzercise class with confidence. An OT can show her clients stretches and strengthening exercises for the chest, back and core for moms who suffer from muscle tension and poor posture after spending so much time holding and nursing their little ones in those inevitably strange positions.

Testimonials

In early 2015 Janelle Kloske delivered a presentation to a large group of employees at Brown and Caldwell regarding health and wellness both in the office and out. She discussed helpful topics such as proper nutrition, stretching techniques, correct office ergonomics, and how to balance stress through meditation. Her professional advice and calm demeanor allowed those in attendance to set up the proper building blocks to live a healthier lifestyle in the office and at home. I hope that one day we could see another one of her presentations, as they are invaluable. Anyone and everyone can benefit from her advice and guidance.

-Workplace Wellness Client; San Diego, California

Janelle and I became friends when she and I both lived on Guam. I watched her build her business from scratch and became a client of hers. At first, I went to Janelle for body work, but then chose to explore Reiki with her as my guide. I had not done energy healing prior and she was extremely knowledgeable and created a very safe environment for me to relax and channel the power of Reiki healing. I miss her greatly and if I were in San Diego, I would be still using her as my guide.
