It is an honor to share my conversation with Tami Lynn Kent, MSTP. Tami is a women's health physical therapist who created Holistic Pelvic Care™, physical and energetic tools to align the pelvis for optimum creative flow. She trains other healthcare providers around the world how to practice this sacred, trauma-informed healing art that helps women restore connection to their root. It has been my absolute honor and privilege to learn from Tami over the years. I am excited to share this conversation with you!
IN THIS EPISODE, WE DISCUSS:
+ How her body of work was born.
+ The body has its own intelligence.
+ Holistic Pelvic Care is like Feng Shui for the pelvic bowl. Shifting the alignment to increase energy flow.
+ How she integrated energy work into her more mechanical/symptom-based training
+ Western Medicine has not had language for energy/chi.
+ Energy work gets more to the root and is more gentle, hence more effective, and helps with trauma. (This was missing in both of our training systems.)
+ We invite more practitioners to expand the box they were trained in!
+ How she has balanced motherhood and busy practice, and how challenging that can be when children are so bonded to the physical body.
+ Why women's health bodywork has been so unknown.
+ How we inherit and embody the gifts and wounds of our lineage, how the body keeps a record, and how to access the gifts and potentials inside our family wounds.
+ Working with ancestor energy.
+ "Stay open. Be respectful. Stay out of your ego. Get to work."
+ The shut down and wounding of the feminine from the patriarchy exists in EVERYONE.
+ She defines feminine as the sacred ability to receive--this is equally stripped away in all genders and sexes. Repairing this wound creates whole new patterns in the masculine. The work our time is to repair the feminine and heal our masculine forms. We talked about what this looks like.
+ Our current wounded masculine systems behave like cancer. Integrating the feminine and restoring the sacred is the key to healing.
