I am really excited to be able to offer this Holistic Core Restore® Diastasis program that works alongside all the other brilliant holistic Core Restore® women’s health programmes I have to offer.
As we are all different, this bespoke program is unique to you, your situation, and circumstances, no two women will heal the same or have the same habits and lifestyle routines.
So what is Diastasis Recti? (Tummy gap/tummy separation)
It’s a splitting, stretching or separation of the outer abdominal wall. The job of these muscles is to support your back and your internal organs
So why does this happen?
If the muscles are weak due to the separation from being stretched, like when you have a baby or being overweight, the connective tissue (linea alba) which joins the muscle together, it stretches sideways and this tissue become thinner and weaker, hence not doing its job properly and leading to possibly pelvic instability, bad posture, restrictive breathing and miss-alignment.
Any buildup of intra–abdominal pressure could add more problems, as will gravity, load, and force. Lifting too heavy of a weight or load, breathing incorrectly, performing the wrong exercises, all have a bearing on your healing.
As diastasis recti puts a weakness on the abdominal wall, its functional strength role is greatly weakened, increasing possible back problems, pelvic instability, poor posture and restrictive breathing capacity. Any intra-abdominal pressure created through lifting or putting any load could make the situation worse, so doing the right kind of exercise is vital, we want to heal not hinder the progress. This program focused on all the positives things you can do, as most advice is saying things what not to do.
We will work together on this unique 1:1 programme which is about you and your healing and recovery. You are investing deeply in your future health and wellness, this Holistic Core Restore® Diastasis package has a allover holistic approach with its training and recovery.
Nutrition, hydration, breathing techniques, soft tissue therapy, release, posture, and alignment are all intrinsic to positive healing of diastasis recti.
