Episiotomy scar - mother with two children - Gillespie Approach–Craniosacral Fascial Therapy

The Episiotomy Scar

One small scar can dramatically change a life.

A young woman has twins via cesarean section. The birth was a rough go, but she recovered from the surgery with no problems. Afterwards, she often took long walks and jogged. She felt very fit and loved to play with her twins.

Immediately after her next birth (a VBAC), she transformed into a different person. Her pelvis was tight and seemed heavy. She felt pulling from her pelvic girdle into her lower back.

She also experienced a lot of pressure in the back of her head. She had neck and shoulder pain, dizzy spells, low energy, anxiety, and depression. It was like someone turned a body switch five years ago and a different person appeared.

She presented with a zero-second brain cycle and a fascial strain pattern running from her episiotomy scar into her head. Her craniosacral fascial system was severely compromised. It appeared that the scar had been a life-changer.

Just by having her hold that scar over her clothes and me listening to her upper body, her brain cycle amazingly opened to 120 seconds after the sessions on the first visit. Wow. I felt she was on her way back to her old healthy self.

In my career, I have found that tearing, an episiotomy, or other pelvic floor injury must be addressed. Left untreated, life-altering problems can develop since no healthcare professional is connecting the fascial dots in space (pelvic floor to the rest of the body) and time (five years after the birth).

To be more complete in helping patients heal, professionals need to think in terms of a well-functioning craniosacral fascial system. Gillespie Approach Training can unlock the healing door for patients.
