ellephysio is proud to announce the return of Dr. Holly Herman. Female Health, Wellness and Sexual Function will take place at ellephysio on December 3rd and 4th, 2017.
Most healthcare professionals do not think of Female Health, Wellness and Sexual Function as a specific area of medicine. Often, women suffer hormonal changes without guidance nor explanation of the changes they feel. Women experience changes in sexual function and are often told to take “a vacation, a glass of wine” or are dismissed as frigid. The different phases of woman’s life bring specific concerns and often they are ignored or never investigated.
This 2 day course will invite the participant to explore the many areas of female health. The participant will learn about body perception, tests, questionnaires medications, hormones, personal relationships and how they affect female wellness. The participant will gain a solid foundation for the causes and treatments of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, coronary artery disease, Hashimoto’s disease, vulvodynia, postpartum changes, pelvic pain, menstrual irregularities,
Advanced manual skills for evaluation and treatment of these dysfunctions and exercise prescriptions that target optimal function are provided.
At the end of the course the participant will be able to:
- Describe the variations of the female sexual response cycle throughout the lifecycle
- Explain vulvodynia, endometriosis, diabetes, thyroid changes and associated risk factors
- Understand the role of hormones and pharmacologic agents in female health
- Describe medical tests and questionnaires specifically for female wellness
- Demonstrate 2 manual therapy techniques to improve dysfunction in the pelvic, lumbar, hip, thoracic, abdominal and cervical regions
