A personal note from Lesley Arbour:
I want to thank you for all the calls and texts after I had my accident on February 25th, 2018. I broke my right finger, my left elbow, sprained both hands and had 18 stitches on my face but I am back thanks to the Cold Laser and Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy I received at East-West! My fast recovery was due in part to these therapies and I will resume practice on Monday, April 23rd.
Thank you for your support and blessings,
Myofascial Release & Pelvicology Specialist
Lesley Arbour, M.S., R.N., has been in private practice for over 32 years, specializing in Women’s Health and Pelvic Muscle Dysfunction. She is an expert in behavioral medicine with a focus on perineometry, a biofeedback treatment of disorders of pelvic musculature and sexual dysfunction. Lesley is also a master therapist in Myofascial Release (MFR) and combined with her expertise, she developed a unique medical treatment known as Pelvicology for the treatment of pelvic conditions.
She developed a Certification Program in 1985 for the treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction (ongoing web-based).
Pelvicology uses Myofascial Release to unlock the internal fascia of the pelvic floor. Clients experience lasting changes including: Functional improvement of the pelvic floor muscles; improved core stabilization; and relief from low-back, SI, hip-flexor and coccyx pain. Very often, improved pelvic organ support relieves bowel, bladder and sexual dysfunction.
Lesley has successfully treated the following conditions:
• Prenatal & Postpartum Care
• Episotomy & Mastectomy Scars
• Chronic Constipation
• Prolapsed Uterus
• Bladder/Bowel Incontinence
• Interstitial Cystitis
• Chronic Pelvic Pain
• Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
• Low Back, SI, Hip Flexor, Coccyx Pain
Trauma, such as a fall, whiplash, or just habitual poor posture has a cumulative effect on the body. Some of the effects on the fascial system can produce general pain, restrictions of motion, restrictions in flexibility while also interfering with the body’s ability to endure stress.
Pelvicology can promote general wellness by restoring balance to the fascial system.
Myofascial Release (MFR) and Pelvicology requires a keen understanding of human anatomy and an open channel of communication between client and therapist. Reliable and on-going communication is invaluable for successful treatment.This is why Lesley strongly believes in providing a therapeutic space that is private and confidential, but also comfortable and professional. She recognizes the individuality of each client and personalizes her treatments to fit their specific needs. As a former teacher and Acute Rehabilitation Nurse, Lesley feels that – above all – MFR and Pelvicology are therapeutic modalities, but serve an educational function as well.
