Urogenital Manipulation

Prerequisite: Visceral Manipulation: The Pelvis (VM3); see specific courses listed for specific details about attendance requirements and course outline.

Urogenital Manipulation (UGM)

This course is aimed at those who want to help many patients who suffer from incontinence, dyspareunia, of premenstrual syndrome, infertility, pudendal neuralgia (syndrome of Alcock), prostate problems, lombosacralgie of pelvic origin, and in general all the dysfunctions of the genital area where osteopathy can provide a solution.

Course participants will include male and female students, so partners will need to offer themselves accordingly so that all students have the opportunity to perform the labs. Since the majority of the class is female, if females have any reluctance to allow male partners to practice the labs, please let us know well in advance of the class so the male participants can make alternate arrangements to have a female partner available at appropriate times.

"I really appreciate the no-nonsense approach to working on pelvic conditions. Very gently, but precise and effective. Finally the mystery solved for many pelvic issues!"
