The New Pfilates PROGRAM is Now Available!

05 Sep 2016 Posted by pfilates in Uncategorized

This is the culmination of 10 years of work toward creating an inexpensive (less than $200) nonsurgical solution to bladder control problems. The best part is the Pfilates Program can be performed at home without ever visiting a doctor. As I have said many times; bladder control is a fitness issue and deserves a serious fitness solution. The Pfilates project began in 2008 and was really an attempt to discover a more practicable method of pelvic floor fitness training for my own patients. We studied over 100 different Yoga, Pilates, and personal training movements and discovered ten that passively engage the pelvic floor. When a voluntary pelvic floor contraction (Kegel) is added to the Pfilates movement much stronger pelvic floor contractions are achieved; in the range of 20 – 60% stronger than an isolated Kegel exercise. Clinical data from The…

Thank You Nova Scotia for a Great Course

12 Aug 2012 Posted by pfilates in Uncategorized

Just getting ready to head to the airport for the long ride back to Nevada from Halifax Nova Scotia. A special thank you to the course participants. I am grateful for their participation, their thoughtful insights, and interest in the pelvic floor. I am always so impressed with the quality of professional we are able to attract. I realize this is largely because of our wonderful Canadian Course Coordinator Kim Vopni. Kim and I were talking over dinner last night about the possibility of getting the N.S. PTs organized into a collective to purchase a VESy Lab they can share. New concept but a good fit for this amazing community of women’s health specialists. We will be working on this in the weeks ahead. Thank you Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Love you…. BSC

Do You Want to Take a VESy Session?

VESy stands for video-emg synchronization. This tool is the most cutting edge method of fitness training for the pelvic floor. Here is how it works…. Clients are taught the 10 Pfilates movements by one of our certified Pfitness instructors. The Pfilates movements were selected based on EMG research done by Dr. Bruce Crawford in 2008-2009. These movements naturally contract the pelvic floor muscles and are used in a way that gets the pelvic floor firing better than traditional “Kegel” exercises. Once our clients understand how to do the movements they are hooked up to 4 channel wireless EMG (electromyography) sensors to monitor the pelvic floor muscles as well as the other muscle groups used to get the pelvic floor firing. Each of the ten Pfilates movements are recorded with video synchronized to the EMG record so we can determine which…
