Body Ready Method®
BRM® is an approach to using whole body functional tools with the perinatal population that can help with:
● Body balancing to help baby find their best position
● Prenatal aches and pains
● Pelvic floor dysfunction
● Core support to minimize issues with abdominal separation and diastasis recti
● A more efficient birth by optimizing the body during pregnancy
● A smoother postpartum recovery
Using the law of specificity, BRM® trains the body specifically for the task at hand: pregnancy, birth, and recovery. Pregnancy and birth are immense physiological processes that, ideally, should be specifically supported rather than simply modifying one’s regular routine. BRM® uses a 5 pillar method to help the pregnant and birthing body achieve balanced strength and mobility in order to not only minimize aches, pains, and dysfunction, but to also support a more efficient birthing process. When the body has been specifically supported for the task of pregnancy and birth, the body is primed for an easier and smoother transition into postpartum and for recovery. Pregnancy is a huge physical feat, yet most are not given the tools they need to appropriately and adequately support their body through this process. We believe an empowered pregnancy should include specific education and support for the pregnant body including the core, pelvic floor, upper body mobility, pelvis and body alignment or movement pattern education. Not only can this minimize or even eliminate symptoms and dysfunction that we are often told are “just a normal part of pregnancy,” it also prepares the body for a more efficient birth and a smoother postpartum recovery. Birth is a physiological process and we believe that the body is wise. However, that wisdom is often lost in the modern world. We believe that all birthing people deserve to be offered positional and hands on release work. We believe that these low risk, easily accessible tools can encourage comfort and progress and that these tools can oftentimes eliminate the need for medical interventions that come with higher risk. This can not only create greater satisfaction and empowerment in birth, it can also minimize childbirth related injuries and encourage a smoother recovery and postpartum transition.
