What are people saying about this course?
A great informative and eye-opening course, plenty of scope and need for pelvic health physiotherapy. Melissa is a great educator and gets all the points across with a cheeky approach and help from family and dogs - Marcel
I wish everyone spoke so candidly about all things vagina! After this course I can't wait to spread the word to anyone who will listen about how important our nether bits are. This course has truly highlighted the importance of the pelvic floor and has enriched my clinical practice so that I can confidently screen, externally assess and sign-post for many pelvic floor conditions. While strengthening the core remember the floor! - Charlotte
Melissa provided a research-based useful course, with information which can be immediately applied in the clinic, and in general life. I highly recommend her courses to anyone interested in pelvic health – Ilana
The pelvic health introduction course was a fantastic mix of theory and practical. It was a really relaxed setting which made what could be an uncomfortable topic much less daunting. Melissa is a great teacher and very funny, very easy to learn from! With the added bonus of doggie cuddles, it was one of the best courses I have been on! - Laura
It was a very refreshing way to be brought up to date with the statistics, anatomy, and current treatment of pelvic floor dysfunction in a non-threatening and fun way. Loads of information, and I feel more confident to expand my history taking questions to best serve my patients - Elaine
I really enjoyed the level 1 Pelvic floor course. It had a good mix of practical and theory, Melissa's warm presentation style was great and I enjoyed the stories that accompanied it and came away with screening that I could use my very next day in the clinic. I would definitely recommend - Jeannie
Melissa's programme inspired me to pursue a career in pelvic health, and I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to attend this course - Anna
An excellent introduction into Pelvic Health Physiotherapy. Melissa is a great presenter and hostess. She makes a scary topic fun and non-threatening. We all need knowledge of the pelvic floor, everyone has one and everyone needs it to be working effectively! - Megan
What a wonderful course, Melissa delivered her course in a relaxed setting making learning fun and memorable. I have taken so much away from this course and hope I can now help my patients even more, especially with issues they may not readily seek help for – Laura
The level one into course opened my eyes to how extremely important pelvic health is for every patient not only the ladies. It made me feel confident in discussing this topic with patients and made me want to educate as many people on it as possible on it. The course was very educational and practical - Melanie
A fantastic way to ascertain whether you are interested in pelvic health. As well as a way to add another layer of understanding to your patient care - Rebecca
A great introduction to treating pelvic health. I have come away feeling more confident in being able to assess and treat pelvic floor issues interrelated to my musculoskeletal treatment - Grace
