My name is Jessica Drummond, and I am the founder of The Institute. Today, I want to talk with you about our mission. The goal of the Institute is to take care of women with pelvic pain from a holistic perspective. Having worked in pelvic pain rehabilitation for over a decade and holistic nutrition since 2009, it was time for me to combine these skills and perspectives. I hope that if you’re a woman who has been suffering with pelvic pain for any length of time, even if you have seen quite a few practitioners, that this new venture brings you great hope! And, if you’re a practitioner in the field, I can’t wait for you to join our community of amazing, caring, talented, and innovative colleagues who are dedicated to finding new ways to help their patients get relief from their complex pain challenges.
Today I would like to share our mission with you.
At the Integrative Pelvic Health Institute we believe that each woman is the artist of her own healing. She alone can make her own best decisions that are informed by her inner wisdom with the guidance of innovative practitioners who are healthy and empowered themselves. Because healing pelvic pain is distinctly and intimately intertwined with a woman’s femininity, sexuality, pregnancy, birth, and motherhood experiences, we provide private and group integrative treatment programs and patient and practitioner education that deeply respect each individual woman’s journey.
No matter how much pain you are in, you are not broken. The tools that we use to support your body’s innate healing systems are more feminine… like “haute couture for your cells” vs. the common masculine analogy of “fuel for your hot rod sports car.”
Our bottom line belief is that your body is a feminine temple, not a broken car. You have the power to heal, and you are already whole. Our role is to be highly knowledgeable about and to educate you on all of the beautiful, luxurious, effective, and evidence-based tools that are available to you to support your body’s innate healing intelligence.
What We Do…
We care for women with pelvic pain using innovative, evidence-based, integrative healing tools such as nutrition, mindfulness, meditation, and lifestyle coaching. We work with women individually in private nutrition and coaching programs and we will be launching a group community coaching program in May of 2013.
We train pelvic pain practitioners including pelvic floor specialist physical therapists, clinical nutritionists and women’s health coaches, physicians, and naturopaths. Our programs focus on creating bridges and communities among practitioners by educating them on the role that each speciality plays in the treatment of pelvic pain, and by teaching them new tools and perspectives to use in their own practice. We also focus on the health of the practitioner, as one of our core beliefs is that healthy practitioners provide better care to patients. And, we train practitioners in innovative business models and modern marketing to allow them to expand their practice while maintaining their own energy and work/ life balance. Our practitioner training program will be available in early 2014.
Our programs will be available for women and practitioners very soon. Please sign up for our free, downloadable mp3 audio and our free newsletter on the top right of this page to be the first to know when the programs are launched.
Thank you for being here and sharing in my vision for strong, empowered, and healthy women throughout the globe who are released from the suffering of their pelvic pain.
