Join us as we learn about the pelvic floor and how it changes as women experience menopause. This class will discuss common problems that women can experience with their pelvic floor (such as leakage, pelvic pain, and pelvic organ prolapse), and focuses on a more holistic way to address, and even prevent, these problems.
Class will be hosted by Lizanne Pastore PT, MA, COMT. Lizanne received her B.S. in Physical Therapy from the University of Vermont in 1987. As an orthopedic manual therapist, Lizanne sees people with myriad musculo-skeletal-neural issues, and since 2005 she has specialized in women’s health and the pelvic floor, treating both women and men using a broad integrative approach. She particularly enjoys working with the ante and post-partum mama and those with hard to treat pelvic pain. Additionally, Lizanne holds an M.A. in Somatic Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. The somatic approach encourages patients to explore a level of body awareness that is often missing in the Western medical model, and it grounds her philosophy of treating people as dynamic, multi-system beings, all with unique concerns and enormous potential to heal.
