Post Partum Exercise Specialist

Abdominal Massage and Pelvic Wellbeing

Carly Gaylor






Carly offers abdominal massage after training in Jaibalito, Guatemala in both Mayan abdominal massage and Chinese abdominal massage methodologies. She is also a certified Pregnancy and Post Partum Exercise Specialist with a passion for helping people recover their connection with their bodies and do the things they love without fear or pain. 

After a difficult labour and delivery with her son, she tried many different therapeutic approaches to heal her pelvic floor and get back to the activities she loved, including running and soccer. It wasn’t until she found a whole body approach that she experienced significant healing. It is this focus on the whole body – breathing, posture, and head-to-toe functional movement, as well as abdominal massage – that she brings to her work, helping others find hope in their healing journeys.


Abdominal Massage

Abdominal massage sessions typically last 60 minutes, with the option to include complementary work on posture and breath to aid in the healing process. 

For women, abdominal massage can help with prolapse; fertility; menstrual and ovulation pain/irregularity; hormonal balance; symptoms of PMS, perimenopause, and menopause; ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids; recurring bladder and yeast infections; endometriosis and PCOS; painful intercourse; and healing after miscarriage or a difficult pregnancy. 

For all people (including children), abdominal massage can help with healthy digestion, constipation and bloating, chronic diarrhea, indigestion and heartburn, lower back pain and muscle tension, IBS, GERD, Crohn’s disease, incontinence, water retention, pelvic pain, detoxification, immune health, circulation, stress and anxiety, and emotional wellbeing, including trauma. For men, abdominal massage can help with prostate health, bladder health and recurrent bladder infections, and impotence and fertility issues.

Please note that abdominal massage should not be received: 

  • During menstruation
  • If you are using an IUD for birth control
  • In the first trimester of pregnancy (Note: I am not trained in pregnancy abdominal massage… hopefully in the future!)
  • Early postpartum (contact me re: timing in your specific situation)
  • If cancer is present or suspected anywhere in the pelvis or if you are currently undergoing chemotherapy
  • Immediately after abdominal or back surgery.

Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise* 

*For moms, but also for people of all ages/genders who are interested in moving better to feel better!

Do you need to be careful when running or jumping, laughing or coughing so that you don’t leak? Do you slouch when sitting or standing and wish you had better posture? Do you sometimes have aches and pains or find it difficult to do activities you used to be able to do? Are you pregnant and experiencing pelvic, low back, hip pain, or other aches? Would you like to learn exercises and movements that help support natural childbirth? 

Pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood is hard work. It is also hard on our bodies, and many mothers experience lasting physical changes and uncomfortable symptoms. So many people think this is a normal part of motherhood, but it doesn’t have to be!

Corrective exercise can take just a few minutes a day and greatly improve the following whether you are preparing to become pregnant, pregnant, early postpartum, or years/decades postpartum:

  • Posture, strength, and mobility, including in day-to-day activities and more intensive activities/sports
  • Preparation for birth, including support for natural childbirth
  • Pelvic health, including leaking, prolapse, pain, sexual pleasure
  • Diastasis recti
  • Improved self-esteem and body image
  • Doing the activities you love without pain.

Contact me to learn more and/or book a session – I look forward to hearing from you! Both group and individual sessions are available (it can be fun to do with a group of family/friends!).
