By Riva Preil Wednesday night, the Beyond Basics team celebrated a monumental occasion- the release of Amy Steinâ€™s new patient self-care DVD entitled Healing Pelvic and Abdominal Pain! In this new 2 hour home program for patients and guide for practitioners, Amy provides an explanation of pelvic and abdominal pain as well as self-care strategies (including massages and stretches). The DVD is appropriate for patients with vulvodynia, endometriosis, non-bacterial prostatitis, pudendal neuralgia, pelvic pain, coccyx pain, interstitial cystitis, and bladder and or bowel dysfunction. The video provides information for men, women and children. Amy also educates viewers on the proper performance of pelvic floor relaxation techniques, including diaphragmatic breathing, stretching, and dilator usage. Bonus material includes behavioral modification suggestions. The DVD is available for purchase at: http://www.healingpelvicandabdominalpain.com ($49.95, free shipping). It is included as a bonus for all out of town patients. The release of this amazing DVD is an exciting opportunity for us to SHARE KNOWLEDGE about pelvic floor health. Too many individuals suffer in silence, and many are not aware their pelvic floor muscles may be the root of their symptoms and/or pain. Heck, many people donâ€™t even know what their pelvic floor IS to begin with! Thanks to Amy and her new innovative DVD (as well as her book, Heal Pelvic Pain), the word is spreading and information is more accessible than ever before. That is truly reason to celebrate, and celebrate we didâ€¦in grand style! A special thank you to Karen, Alexa, Yarissa, and Arianna for planning such a fabulous launch party!
