A few years ago I came across David Weinstocks's Neurokinetic Therapy and busted a gut to attend his courses and was incredibly well rewarded. The the world of Post Natal Core Restoration, a great emphasis is put on 'restrengthening' the Core musculature with an aim to restoring function but are we assessing/testing for function before we begin applying strength protocols.

We'll get clear on the potential for soft-tissue and neurological dysfunction and the key elements of a core recovery programme for this growing population of women and why it needs to be DIFFERENT to achieve the same goals as the vaginal birth woman. What soft-tissue modalities and key exercises how, when and why. A fascinating theory and practical application session with great info you can use the next day with your clients.

2pm - 3.30pm - Preconceptual Nutrition - Jessica Drummond - Why Supporting Our Clients to Optimize Their Digestive and Detox Health Prior to Pregnancy is Essential for the Health of the Woman and her Baby.
Unless couples struggle with infertility, often, they jump right into trying to get pregnant without considering how mom and dad's health prior to conception can have a long term impact on the health of their children (even into adulthood). And, when couples do struggle with infertility as 1 in 8 couples do, optimizing preconception health and improving the health of the gut microbiota, supporting the liver to detoxify common medications like birth cotnrol and resolving nutrient deficiencies can make a big difference to a woman's ability to conceive and carry a health pregnancy to term. Learn how to support the women you serve by encouraging them to spend a few months preparing for pregnancy in order to have healthy pregnancies and babies.
3.30 - 5.00pm - The 'Women's Wellness Professional Success Blueprint' - This session will be in a round-table discussion format where the second day speakers (Michelle Lyons, Jessica Drummond, Maria Elliott and Jenny Burrell) will guide you through their vital ingredients to successfully serving Women in their own unique way. We'll cover business essentials, work-life balance, the 'product /offering creation process' and how to sustain a thriving business over time. After the presentations, there will be time for attendees to have their specific questions answered regarding their work practise, moving into Physiotherapy private practise, creating an online offering, creating a new face-to-face community offering, the power of partnering with other professionals and so much more. This weekend of education and coming together is ESSENTIAL for all our personal growths but additionally, we all want to create thriving businesses that our clients love and rave about. So, THIS is the secret-sauce, how do you take great education and create something that serves women deeply and provides you with the income and lifestyle that your dedication deserves................
This session is complimented by a full Success Blueprint Report PDF which will be made available to all Day 2 participants where we have asked the speakers from both days to contribute their pearls of wisdom on how to achieve and maintain successful businesses serving women including key resources that they use and turn to for everyday help and inspiration. Value?......Priceless!
