As well as supporting the pelvic organs, preventing incontinence and promoting a healthy core, the pelvic floor plays a major role in sexual experience. It surrounds the entire vagina and significantly contributes to a woman’s sexual function, arousal and satisfaction. Regular pelvic floor training promotes blood flow in the pelvic floor and increases stimulation during intercourse which facilitates sexual pleasure and the ability to orgasm.
A Strong Pelvic Floor for Strong Women
Cellulite is considered to be a cosmetic problem. It is nothing more than normal fat deposits beneath the skin that push against connective tissue under the skin, causing the skin above it to pucker and look lumpy. It is thought to occur due to shrinkage or shortening of the fibrous tissue cords that anchor the skin. Studies have shown that the fat deposits under the skin are unable to withstand the high increase in blood circulation and metabolism triggered by PelviPower Magnetic Stimulation. This significantly reduces the appearance of cellulite and tones the area around the hips, thighs and buttocks.
Menopause and Ageing
Refers to the 2-12 year period prior to menopause. This is a time of fluctuating oestrogen levels where your body makes more oestrogen and less and less progesterone. It is very common for many women to experience a wide range of menstrual disturbances during this time, including hot flushes, sleep disturbance and night sweats.
The normal age range for menopause is between 45-55 years of age with the average being 50.
A decline in oestrogen levels means a settling of symptoms but also leads to thinning of tissues and potential weakness in the pelvic floor.
These changes increase the likelihood of:
- Continence issues
- Pelvic Organ Prolapse
- Difficulty emptying the bowel
- Painful sex

Pelvic floor optimisation can lessen the impact of age and hormone relates changes. A strong pelvic floor reduces the risk of incontinence and helps prevent and control prolapse.
We can help you strengthen your pelvic floor and give you advice on ways to keep it strong with progressive functional exercise appropriate to you.
PelviPower training stimulates both deep and superficial layers of the tissue and increases cellular metabolism. This encourages tightening of the tissue and improves blood flow to the skin, supporting the fight against cellulite and weak connective tissue. What’s more, tissue stimulation and energised metabolism heighten a woman’s sexual sensitivity and the ability to achieve orgasm. Complaints associated with menopause can also be alleviated.
There is no need to undress as you train in your every day clothes.
Hot flushes are thought to occur when your thermo-neutral zone, controlled by the Autonomic Nervous System, is reduced. This leads to an exaggerated body response to minimal temperature changes. Acupuncture influences the autonomic nervous system and increases hormones like Beta-endorphin and Serotonin in the central nervous system. The medical research advocates the use of acupuncture for hot flushes with changes to intensity, frequency and general wellbeing noted.
