How to Check for Diastasis Recti:

  1. Lie flat on your back with your knees bent.
  2. Place your fingers on your belly button, pointing towards your pelvis, and press down.
  3. Lift your head up about an inch while keeping your shoulders on the ground.
  4. If you have diastasis recti, you will feel a gap between the muscles that is an inch wide (~ 2 fingers) or greater.

Diastasis Recti

Two-thirds of pregnant women will experience Diastasis Recti. It occurs because of the enormous pressure on the abdomen from your growing baby, the muscles can no longer keep their shape and a separation is the result.

We focus on treating on treating Diastasis Recti with the latest technology, using non invasive, scientifically proven methods. We treat your Diastasis Recti safely and painlessly allowing you to get back to your daily routine and recover your strength and confidence. You deserve to look and feel your best. 


Pelvic Floor 

Pregnancy and childbirth are common causes of pelvic floor dysfunction. Your pelvic floor muscles and tissues become strained, especially if your labor was long or difficult. 

Men can also suffer with the symptoms of a weakened pelvic floor due to prostate cancer treatment in males, obesity and the associated straining of chronic constipation. 

Both men and women can suffer from a weakened pelvic floor due the normal ageing process

This condition can have a dramatic impact on your daily life, and here at My Bod we believe that no one should have to suffer the indignity and difficulties these symptoms cause. 

A weakened pelvic floor and core muscles can also cause lower back pain. This is due to the weakened muscles promoting poor forward leaning posture and reduced stability when making spinal movements such as lifting. Improving your core strength encourages your abdominals and back muscles to work together properly resulting in reduced back pain. 

Our treatment allows for full core development. High intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) capabilities in specific protocols alternate intensities and pulse rhythms to fully work the targeted musculature with tens of thousands of supramaximal contractions. This provides a complete, thorough stimulation for the core, pelvic floor or skeletal muscles. The range of exercises one would need to work these areas successfully would take a lot of time without the same level of benefit because exercise cannot duplicate the therapeutic effect of the HIFEM procedure. As the only non-invasive device specifically FDA cleared for the treatment of all kinds of urinary incontinence it can treat the condition most efficiently. For the most effective treatment it is recommended to target both the pelvic floor and abs in one course of treatment. See your ‘Core to Floor’ package when booking.
