Dr. Grace Abruzzo
Women’s Health: A Holistic Approach to Pelvic Health Physical Therapy
EPISODE: 80 | DATE: July 7, 2022
“I’m not doing psychotherapy. It’s physical therapy. But I offer questions and exercises so that you actually go at your own pace to find your own deeper messages around your own deepest healing. And that actually sticks a little bit more.”
ABOUT DR. GRACE
In her own words:
I am Dr. Grace. I specialize in healing the deepest parts of ourselves. My practice is guided by equity, safety, and pleasure of all persons. This level of healing requires breaking down internal beliefs of not-enoughness. It is activism and liberation of the Self through the pelvis. Loving your pelvis takes a compassionate, curious approach to all the parts of ourselves that we have knowingly or unknowingly dismissed.
I practice healing through Physical Therapy specializing in Women’s Health with an emphasis in Pelvic Health and Obstetric Health as well as Pelvic Coaching.
Through trauma informed Medical Yoga Therapy TM, body/mind/spirit movement, breathwork, energy work, Compassionate Inquiry TM, Somatic ExperiencingTM, and various manual therapy techniques, I support relational deep healing.
I came to this work through my own experiences with pelvic dysfunction, trauma, and pain. I learned how to give what I always needed.
Our body remembers, our tissues hold stories. Some past experiences may be informing the present physiology.
Working with me. I am here to support, facilitate, hold, nurture, perhaps guide the energies in your body expressing through your body. Trauma is experienced in relation and so does healing. I believe in your inner wisdom. Our sessions are guided by our joined intuition and may consist of a mixture of many therapeutic technics.
This work is deep. It is to move you to the level you are calling in. It is in support of the healing of not only you, but also your ancestral lineage and those who live after us. I know you are ready, because you are here.
When I am loving the healing in you, I am loving the healing in me.
