Have You Settled for Less Than the BEST LIFE?

“Common is not the same as normal.” We say this every day at The Tummy Team. Sadly, so many of the clients we work with have settled for less than their best life because they have accepted their symptoms as normal consequences of having children or getting older. In many cases, clients have already attempted all the typical things: weight loss, couch to 5K, extreme fitness programs, dramatic diet changes, traditional physical therapy, chiropractic care,…

45 Ways The Tummy Team Changed My Life

This month, I turned 45. I have lived 45 years of life. Some of those years were great, some were hard. But all of them put together is what got me where I am today. My journey to healing and restoration – both physically and emotionally – is completely woven together with my journey to start The Tummy Team. When I first learned of my diagnosis of diastasis recti and the bleak options for fixing…

The “Done!” List

It starts right after Thanksgiving – things to do, presents to buy, cards to be addressed, groceries, festive décor, parties, events…and that’s even not including the activities the kids are involved in. Towards the end of the year, there is a tendency to think about the things we didn’t do. Hopefully, we will complete those goals. Next year. Maybe. And so we make lists. Wishlists for Christmas, to-do lists for events, and after that, a…

Changes for Life

Everyone wants immediate changes. In the world of instant downloads, instant streaming, instant everything…We never seem to heal fast enough for our standards. But if you think about it, what you really want more than immediate results is lasting results. Think about the times when we or someone we know dropped a lot of weight on a drastic diet, only to then be devastated to gain all the weight back. Small consistent changes that build into…

No Finish Line

  Many of the clients we see at The Tummy Team are desperate for help. They have lived with their physical pain and their emotional scarring for a long time. Perhaps they stumbled upon us right after their problems arose; but for many of our clients, this is their last hope after many failures to fix what they have been dealing with. (To see what kinds of problems our core rehab can solve, click here). Once…

Healing an Umbilical Hernia

At the Tummy Team, we offer Prenatal Core Training to prepare the abdomen for carrying and delivering the baby – both which can cause or worsen diastasis and other problems. We encourage our clients to journal their story so they can see the changes. Below are the first 2 inspiring journal entries from an online client who suffered from an umbilical hernia. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ First Journal Entry… “At 17 weeks pregnant with my 4th baby, I was already…

Healing Sciatica Pain From Pregnancy

We believe women do not have to fall apart after birthing children! We offer a Core Foundations course that can help heal sciatica pain, diastasis recti, and other symptoms of core weakness. We have helped many moms and welcomed many babies into our little family. Below is the story of Katie (and baby Lydia too!) about how she was able to strengthen her core and pelvic floor during pregnancy. _______________________________________________________ “I wanted to share my birth story to tell…

Is Core Rehab Really Possible Online?

The question we asked for a long time: can you *really* achieve core rehab through an online program? Rehab is personal and specific, and people have the best results when we can see them and treat them specifically.  But the reality is there are a limited number of therapists who do what we do and yet so many women (and men) who need core rehab. So we set out to answer this question. I (Kelly, PT, and owner of…

Stronger Core, Stronger Life

After years in physical therapy, I am still surprised how often people do not make fixing their ‘tummy’ a priority. When you really consider the core and it’s function, it is shocking that the pursuit of a stronger core is seen as vanity. Perhaps it is because we feel some pressure to have a flat, Photoshopped, blemish free stomach like all the images we see. But somewhere in the rational portion of our brain, we know…

Core Rehab: You Can’t Afford Not To

The medical insurance system is broken. I am sure this is not news to you. Unfortunately, the system is highly influenced by pharmaceutical companies, medical supply companies, malpractice lawsuits, and federal agencies. Essentially it is largely influenced by money. Despite this knowledge, many of us have developed a thought process that goes something like this: “well, if my insurance won’t cover it, I must not need it.” That’s not necessarily true! I want you to understand…
