Testimonials and Case Studies

At the Coregood Institute we want to make a difference to the lives of our patients, giving them the information, advice and treatment they need to have a healthy, functioning pelvic floor.

Here are some of our success stories straight from our patients.

“I’ve debated sharing this but it’s one of those things that people don’t talk about, and my silence takes choice away from others who might be in the same boat as I was. So here goes….
As many of you know, I found a fantastic program that helped me shed some pesky kgs and give me the energy I was missing. As result I have a new lease on life and decided to set myself a running goal for the first time in my life. What I didn’t expect (stupidly given the s…uper size of the babies I carried) was that pushing myself like that would expose a weakness in my pelvic floor that up until then I never knew I had. And I was all set to just back off my goal and accept it as my new normal.
Then I learned about these guys – COREGOOD INSTITUTE. Never heard of them? Nope, me neither and they were right under my nose in Paraparaumu, with one of their tools being literally the only one in the country!
They deal with all manner of issues (not just for women) and I cannot recommend them enough. If you are not local, at the very least don’t be like me and think you have to live with whatever annoyance you have. Find a Pelvic Floor Therapist in your area and get it sorted.
The downside is that I now no longer have an excuse to hide behind on getting focused back on that goal! Now where did I put my runners….?”

Stress Urinary incontinence

Jo Ross, 42

“I was wanting to improve my pelvic floor for my upcoming operation and so I could hold on longer before the need to pee. Therapy has helped me break the habit of peeing whenever I had an urge and now I can hold on longer and can control the frequency.
Addressing my problem was well worth it! I didn’t feel embarrassed at all. The team at Coregood were always friendly and professional, full of knowledge and I would highly recommend seeing them.”

Urgency and frequency

Anon, 44

“Fantastic Experience, I’m delighted with the results.
After having my second child I was constantly feeling like I needed to go to the bathroom.
I would struggle to empty my bladder properly. This was really starting to impact on my life. I couldn’t even take a trip to the supermarket without needing to go to the bathroom. I can now hold on for ages!!! And I can empty my bladder more effectively. This has made a huge difference in my daily life and feeling of wellbeing. I didn’t even realise how bad my weakness was and how much better it could be. I have recommended you to my friend and she is keen to come along.
I talk to loads of girlfriends about the difference this has made. Well worth the investment and Thank You !!”

Stress Urinary incontinence

Rebecca Hines, 37

“Seventeen years ago, my pelvic floor was damaged during the birth of my son. Since that time I had been trying to exercise my pelvic floor like I was told, but I could hardly tell if it was on or off. Every time I sneezed I leaked, and occasionally I would even flood without realising it when out walking. Running on the beach with my daughter was out of the question. It was horrible but I thought I had to put up with it. Thankfully I learned about Nathan and the Pelvicenter. It didn’t take long to start noticing improvements through my course of treatment on the chair. Now my muscles are so much stronger, I feel that I can lift my pelvic floor and flooding is a thing of the past. With the freedom to run on the beach with my kids I feel so much more relaxed.”

Stress Incontinence

Sarah, 43

“The nightmare of what I found out was an over-active bladder was affecting what I did and where I went – I was at the stage of trying incontinence pads…at 62! Then I spied the Coregood Institute advertisement and decided to swallow my pride and talk to someone about it. It was the best thing I’ve done in a long time – I’m back to having normal bladder function…and NO DRUGS or medical procedures. Thank you!”

Over Active Bladder (OAB)

Graeme, 62

“It was troubling me that I was urinating 4 to 5 times a night. After a course of therapy I am only urinating once per night. I found the service at Coregood extremely friendly and the treatment worked for me.”


George, 73

“I had an ongoing prolapse. I have learned how to look after the pelvic floor muscles better now and what I can do in the future. It felt good doing something proactive (after having neglected the issue for years).”

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Michaela Kopruch, 53

“Being in constant pain is terrible thing to deal with in life. Having suffered from constant back sprains for over six years, I have tried everything from chiropractors, postural specialists, spinal specialists and other alternative treatments to find a solution. Being shown and told to do repetitive exercises, I was still suffering from constant back sprains. Then I was introduced to The PelviCenter by Nathan. It was a life changing experience. In the 6 months I have been using the PelviCenter I have enjoyed a quality of life I haven’t had for years. For such a tiny investment of my time, which is just twenty minutes once a week, I’ve finally found that miracle treatment I’ve been searching for for so long. I feel like my old self!”

Back Pain

Tim, 37

“The Coregood Institute have empowered me to move confidently into increasing old age without the fear that my activities will be curtailed by my previous inability to control incontinence.”

Mixed Incontinence (MI)

Lois Babbage, 80

“I had an unexpected wee issue that the GP’s said was too soon to mend,
Then I saw a ray of hope, an advert for the Coregood Institute, and a big magic chair,
Nathan and Bailey are so much better than a handbag full of Depend™,
The treatments for me were pain free, and stuff settled quickly with no unexpected scares.

If you need some help, don’t put it off or despair,
It won’t be long before you see the results and feel the repair,
Your issues will be treated and you’ll be listened to and understood,
Thank you guys, the fantastic team at Kapiti Coregood!

Things have settled really well and I’m super pleased.”

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)

Ange, 53

“It had gotten to the point where I was having to get up many times a night to go to the toilet.
A course of treatment was well worth the effort. The people at The Coregood Institute are discrete, caring and very pleasant to deal with.”


Jon Morgan, 66

“I used the Coregood Institute to resolve prostatitis and its symptoms in a non-pharmaceutical manner. The results of the treatment were immediate and long lasting, and Nathan and the team were always knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with.”


James, 48

“I had bladder leakage and it was affecting my daily life in more ways than one. From standing to sitting, coughing, sneezing, exercise… you name it.
I can now cough, sneeze, blow my nose, exercise etc. without having to cross my legs and hold my breath. I am so happy to be able to do most exercises again, even running. The team at coregood have been fantastic, go and see them. They are extremely helpful and willing to help. They don’t make you feel embarrassed and can improve your lifestyle. Don’t delay it any longer, go see them.”

Stress Urinary incontinence

Joy, 46

“I was having to rush to the toilet with crossed legs, even when I had been to the toilet 30 mins before. Now I can go out to lunch and do not have to race in the door when I get home to pee.
Coregood have certainly helped my situation. They were so patient, kind and understanding. I am very grateful for all their help and professional advice.”

Urge Incontinence

Pamela Goodchild, 72

“I am 66 and have suffered from a descending prolapse for many years. I recently saw the advertisement for the new PelviCenter chair and decided to give it a try. After several sessions on the chair my condition has improved and my daily life is more comfortable. I have also found that my lower back and bladder muscles feel stronger so I don’t need to visit the toilet so often.”

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Natalie, 66

“Nathan was brilliant in helping me with my back. His knowledge and expertise was appreciated. I would highly recommend him for others.”

Back Pain

Greg Hodge, 50

“I had problems with my pelvic floor, with a heavy feeling and frequent visits to the toilet at night. I’d read about the QRS PelvicCenter, a chair you sit in and have your pelvic floor muscles stimulated, and then I learned that the Coregood Institute had brought the PelviCenter to New Zealand. After talking to Nathan Scott about my problems, I had a course of treatment with fantastic results. I no longer have that heavy feeling.

Nathan has also treated my arm with very good results. Nathan and Bailey are very professional and make you feel welcome without putting any pressure on you.”

Nocturia (increased frequency at night) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)

Henriette, 68

“The Coregood Institute is great, friendly and relaxed. Urinary Incontinence was annoying me. I had been told it was normal but I was reassured to know its not normal and can be treated. I now feel so much more confident and relaxed”

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)

Sandra, 63

“Nathan provided a broad spectrum of treatment and education to help me effectively manage an on-going physical condition. I have a great deal of respect for his wider field of knowledge and expertise.”
