Holistic Core Restore® prides itself on leading the revolution in the way that ‘conservative’ Pelvic Floor exercise and Core Rehabilitation/Re-Connection is taught to women throughout their life phases from Pregnancy to Post Menopause.  We also pride ourselves on being thorough, going the extra mile to ensure that we’re working with women for whom our programme is truly a good fit and also being able to spot when this programme is not the immediate answer for their current issues.    In short, we go deeper everytime to ensure that women have a wonderful experience following all the elements of this programme and have positive outcomes.

Although we have a great track-record, lots of very happy and restored women who have followed the programme and clinicians who vouch for the integrity and value of the programme, we also thought we’d go further and ask one the UK’s if not the worlds leading authorities on Women’s Wellness – Michelle Lyons (Women’s Health Physiotherapist) and Global Female Health Educator to take a role with us as our Clinical Consultant to ensure that our education is second to none and that we always have clinical guidance to draw on in order to better serve the women who trust us.

The term Women’s Health Physiotherapist although wonderful doesn’t actually cover even a 10th of Michelle’s scope of practice, knowledge and teaching which includes Female Cancers, Menopause, Bone Health, Herbalism, Pelvic Health, Aromatherapy, Mindfulness, Integrative Nutrition…..and the list goes on.

Myself and the rest of the coaches are beyond honoured and proud to be under her wing and guidance and know that it will only further serve to elevate what we do and share with you.  She’ll contribute to our regular education updates and she might even pop up in your on-line homework content too!

About Michelle:  I have over twenty years of experience as a Chartered Physiotherapist. I am on the teaching & course development faculty of Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehab Institute in the U.S. and was an item writer for the PRPC certification exam. I am also a lecturer for the Pelvic Obstetric & Gynaecological Physiotherapy Association in the U.K. on their pregnancy/MSK courses and will be Clinical Lead on their new advanced pelvic floor course. I blog and teach online (available mid 2015) for Medbridge Education and have collaborated with both the Integrative Pelvic Health Institute and Burrell Education on a number of live and online women’s health educational programmes. In 2013 I co-founded the Women’s Health Physiotherapy group, which now has over 1900 members from all over the world; an abstract looking at the role of the group/social media in promoting women’s health was accepted for WCPT in 2015.

I have been a long time friend of and collaborator with Jenny Burrell, whom I hold in the highest professional regard, so when she asked me to review Holistic Core Restore, I gladly agreed. On review, I was completely overcome with the width, depth and breadth of this programme. It follows all the latest evidence based guidelines when it comes to restoring pelvic health but in an engaging, whole body functional way. When I had the chance to participate in a live class (led by Jenny herself!) it confirmed all that I had felt on reading the material. The exercises are deceptively simple but engage all the meaningful muscles of the inner core in a dynamic but pelvic floor safe way. This is an exercise programme I can wholeheartedly recommend – my only complaint, which I am sure will be echoed by many other women’s health physio’s, is that there aren’t enough HCR coaches out there -yet! This training is genuinely transformative in how we teach women to love moving their bodies again“.
