Internal Pelvic Release Work
All organs in the body are supported by soft tissue connections. The pelvis being the bony guardian of a woman’s reproductive organs, also has a multitude of ligaments, fascia and muscles supporting the bladder, bowel and womb (with her cervix and vagina). The intention of these fibres is to hold the organs in a balanced, suspensory fashion. The capacity of these fibres to accommodate changes within the pelvis, most notably pregnancy, is extraordinary.
As in any other area of the body, soft tissues can hold tension.
Tension can be conscious or unconscious.
Tension can stem from injuries, postural habits, trauma, surgery, hobby or lifestyle choices.
Tension can restrict movement, flow, expansion, space of the bones and of the organs.
Tension in soft tissues can hold memories and emotions.
During an internal pelvic release session tension can be identified and invited to release with tender direct touch, so allowing the tissues to sigh.
When tissues sigh, space is created.
The vagina is a stretchable tube. It’s ability to transform is utterly amazing. Women are usually only familiar with vaginal examinations that explore the top wall – as in a cervix check when in labour or for a pap smear. But the vagina has a back wall through which contact can be made with the soft tissue connections that provide stabilisation to the bones and to the organs.
It’s through the back wall of the vagina that we can use tender touch and directed breathing to free tension in the ligaments and muscles and fascia.

What’s involved in Internal Pelvic Release Work?
A 2hour education and hands-on session includes:
- a discussion on pelvic anatomy to support a woman’s knowledge of her pelvic space, pelvic bones and pelvic soft tissues
- an exploration and gentle release of tension in the soft tissue connections – ligaments, muscles, fascia – felt through the back wall of the vagina
- guidance with ‘how to continue with self-care’ and further release work by the woman or with her partner’s support
- The 2hour session also includes the sharing of other modes of releasing tension e.g. bum jiggling and techniques that cultivate balance within the pelvis and womb
