On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Isa Herrera joins me to discuss holistic healthcare. Isa Herrera is a licensed physical therapist and an expert in integrative pelvic floor therapies in the field of women’s health. At her healing center in NYC, Isa pioneered the use of integrative modalities like Maya Abdominal Massage, Low Level Laser Therapy, Reiki, Sound Healing, and Andean Energy Techniques, and spent years as an adjunct professor at Hunter College in New York teaching pelvic floor techniques to 3rd year doctoral physical therapy students.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Society’s demanding expectations on women

-Developing trust and compassion with your patients to discuss pelvic pain, sexual health and incontinence

-The importance of collaboration with your patient’s broader healthcare team when delivering holistic healthcare

-Female Pelvic Alchemy Program: Trade Secrets for Energizing Your Sex Life, Enhancing Your Orgasms, and Loving Your Lady Parts

-And so much more!

 

With the many selfless roles women take on in the modern world, from child rearing to running businesses, it can be difficult for women to spend time on their own needs. Isa empowers women with, “The time is right for women to seize the moment and to become the heroines of their own story.”

 

It is the role of the therapist to give their patients the tools needed to build towards optimal health as in the end, “[The patients] have to be responsible for their own work.”

 

A therapeutic alliance is developed the moment you make contact with a patient. Trust is even more elevated in intimate settings such as pelvic health, where Isa reminds us, “You have under 15 seconds to make that impression to make sure that they trust you enough to open up to you.”

 

One of the most important qualities of a great therapist is humility as Isa recommends, “If we don’t know something and we are not comfortable with it, we should own it.”

 

Physical therapists often adopt beliefs that hinder them from growing their businesses. To overcome those limiting beliefs, one of the first steps Isa states is, “We have to get out of this scarcity mindset.”

She developed her expertise in diagnosing and treating pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction by helping over fourteen thousand women since 2005 at her NYC-based healing center Renew Physical Therapy.

Most recently, Isa has used her vast clinical experience and expertise and incorporated it into her new online school www.PelvicPainRelief.com, a online educational portal whose mission is to create a global language for patients and professionals seeking accurate, integrative information relating to all things about pelvic health.

Isa's online school PelvicPainRelief.com is founded on evidence-based education and over 10 years of tried and true protocols that incorporate exercises, techniques, and integrative tools to maximize patient healing. She is also now bringing her business and clinical wisdom together as well for professionals to coach and mentor women who want to create or up-level cash-based practices in the field of women's health.

She is also the author of five books on the topic of pelvic floor dysfunction and pelvic pain and her newly released book, Female Pelvic Alchemy is an international best seller in 4 women's health categories. After suffering from pelvic floor dysfunction herself after the birth of her daughter, Isa has made it her life’s mission to help women overcome pelvic floor dysfunction, and also to educate professionals on the right mix of evidence-based and integrative techniques to help patients achieve lifelong health and wellness.
