Guide Review - Pelvic Power
Franklin uses imagery, clear illustrations, ancedote and examples of the natural movement habits of children to inform and instruct posture training for the lower body.
The book goes through the anatomy of the bones, joints, muscles, and organs of the pelvis and pelvic floor. There is also a chapter that references the Eastern perspective and ch'i in relation to pelvic functioning. Each chapter contains background information, subtle movement exercises, and illustrations.
Expect to be entertained, encouraged and informed about the pelvic floor and its relation to a pain-free back.
