About The Course:

Did you know that Lavender essential oil is an evidence-based strategy to reduce stress and anxiety?

There has been considerable research on lavender, with most research confirming that lavender essential oil is effective for use as a sedative, mood modulator, analgesic, and decreases anxiety. Most of your patients have access to essential oils in their homes but are often not using them properly.

Should they be diffused or used topically?  

This over the counter supplement is within your scope of practice as a physiotherapist but do you know the safety precautions? Do you know the contraindications?

This is a potentially powerful tool for desensitizing the central nervous system. The olfactory nerve goes straight to the amygdala and is not modified by the thalamus first.

Pelvic Health Solutions (PHS) is an evidence-based teaching company that aims to educate and empower physiotherapists, healthcare professionals, and everyday people about pelvic health.

PHS was founded in 2010 out of the need to develop pelvic health resources in Ontario at a time when it was an under-serviced health concern. PHS provides continuing education courses, mentoring, and clinical resources for a variety of practitioners with the goal of equipping them to deliver evidence-based, biopsychosocial assessment and treatment of pelvic health problems in our province and abroad.

Our company also exists as a way to connect people experiencing pelvic health concerns to pelvic health physiotherapists in their area. PHS has ultimately blossomed into a community of curious people who are committed to providing hope and healing to those who suffer from pelvic health issues.
