How can we live in harmony with the natural rhythms of our body for activity and restoration, within each day and across the 7-year natural cycles of our lifetime? Kris Gonzalez, Founder of The Way of Yin, shares the TCM perspective of how to cultivate and nourish our precious Jing Qi Essence and when to channel it into vital activity, how one’s vaginal ecology is a reflection of their overall health, and the Three Golden Opportunities for menstruators – all of which influence the vitality and enjoyment of our sexual health and energy.
How has the time-tested practice of Vaginal Steaming, known to efficiently and cost-effectively resolve issues – ranging from menstrual cramps and irregular periods, to cysts and fibroids, to fertility challenges, to a whole host of postpartum issues in dozens of countries around the world, been dismissed by the Western medical model? Keli Garza, founder of Steamy Chick and the Peristeam Hydrotherapy Institute, shares her journey of leading what has become the premiere resource in data collection and research in the efficacy of Perineal Steaming, including results from the Fourth Trimester Postpartum Study.
Dr. Ellen Heed’s pioneering research and work in scar tissue remediation and management has revealed a largely unaddressed epidemic of painful sex postpartum due to undiagnosed scar tissue obstructing proper lubrication, engorgement, and organ mobility in the pelvis. She explains the importance of accurate assessment via The Four Domains of Health – biochemistry, biomechanics, emotions, and scar tissue – and the role Somatic Recall can play in resolving emotions still held in the scar itself.
Unconscious genital guarding, which can show up as numbness, pain, or a lack of sensation, often occurs within the genitalia and pelvis from a breech of boundaries and nonconsensual sex, but can also develop from non-sexual experiences during childhood, as well as during love-making with loved ones. Susanne Roursgaard, Psychotherapist/Sexologist and Creator of the Gaia Method speaks about her experiences as a mid-wife resolving genital armour with her clients and how these experiences informed her decades of work culminating in The Gaia Method.
In this episode, we explore how our adult sexual behaviors and patterns are often rooted in the relational imprints formed during our developmental years. Mike Lousada, creator of Psychosexual Somatics Therapy and Co-author, with his wife, Dr. Louise Mazanti, of “Real Sex,” discusses how can we effectively hold a safe space to resolve any ruptures from these young experiences, in order to explore our sexual essence and authenticity with an open heart and empowered vulnerable presence.
