Hi! I’m Taryn, Mama of 2 Girls; Lover of Movement & Nature; & Passionate Women's Whole Body Connection Therapist. My wish is for every woman to feel at home in her body, whole in her skin, & centred in her self.
What do I do?
I help you to know & understand your body better, & experience your body in new ways through simple yet powerful practices. Although I can offer you a detailed understanding of your Deep Core & Pelvic Floor, my role is not about telling you what's 'wrong' with your body & how to fix it. Rather, I guide you to tune in to your body physically, emotionally & energetically, so that you can find the answers to the questions you have been asking through an in-body and embodied experience. My approach to Women's Therapy is a unique blend where science meets soul. My ongoing professional development as a Women's Physiotherapist is what makes me a good therapist, but it is my understanding of the interconnectedness of your physical, emotional, energetic & spiritual self that helps me to create an integrated & holistic approach to whole-body wellness.
Some of the techniques I use to help women to explore & expand their relationship with their body & self include:
- Movement & Exercise Therapy
- Pelvic Floor Strengthening, Release & Relaxation, & Balancing Techniques
- Core & Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy, including Internal & External Pelvic Floor Therapy & Massage
- Intuitive Energetic release work - massage, self-massage & energetic balancing + bodywork practices
- Meditation - Guided breath work, visualisation & deep relaxation techniques
- Mindfulness practices
- Mindset shifts - including belief unveiling & belief reprogramming
- Personalised self-care rituals & practices
How did I get here?
Having always been interested in the human body & movement, I naturally progressed into Physiotherapy as a profession. After the birth of my first child, I became more interested in Women's Pelvic Health & began a career pathway focusing on Women's Health & Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy. After my second birth, I experienced significant pelvic pain. Pain that almost broke me! After seeing ALL the therapists, I was still left feeling broken, disconnected & disappointed in my body. At the same time, I was noticing that the women that I was working with felt the same. Traditional western physiotherapy techniques alone were not serving these women in a way that I knew was possible. Through my own Pelvic Health Journey, I found ways to recreate my entire relationship with my body that helped me to not only heal my Pelvic Pain but to sense & experience my body in an entirely new way. I was able to learn all the ways in which I had wronged my body as a Woman, and how much of my body's strength & power I wasn't tapping into even as an Australian Age Group Triathlon Representative 16 months after birth. This integrated whole-body approach helped me to reveal a new relationship with my body, my self, my world, & the people in it. This holistic whole-body approach is now what I offer clients.
What do I believe in?
I believe in showing you how, rather than telling you you can't.
I believe that YOU are the expert in your body.
I believe that when you deeply connect with your body, your body will show you the way.
I believe that a positive & powerful connection with your body is the foundation for good living.
I believe that you deserve to feel at home in your body & when you do, you create a life that truly reflects you.
Who do I work with?
I work with women who already move through their world with drive, commitment, fullness & motivation, but are seeking something MORE - even though they are unsure what exactly that something is.
Generally, the women that I work with resonate with one or more of the following statements:
I feel lost & disconnected from my body. I want to 'feel free' in my body again.
I've been told by other therapists that I should't run/lift [insert exercise that makes you feel happy], but I just don't feel like myself if I don't.
I've experienced sexual trauma/medical trauma/surgical trauma/ birth trauma. I have disconnected with my feminine body. I want to feel safe to connect to this space & expereince the please of this space in my body again.
I want to enjoy sex & be able to be present in my body during sex.
I want to be more interested in sex, but I'm just not. It's affecting my relationship & my life.
I have pelvic pain - & everything I have tried doesn't work!
I want to know what it feels like to connect to my Feminine Body & Feminine Essesnce. I have been on a healing journey & this seems like the appropriate next step.
I've had a baby & I want to heal & recover in a 'smart' way, but I also want to feel like I am generating progress.
I've never had a good relationship with my body. I am tired of hating my body.
I want to feel strong, fit, fast & resilient in my body. I have worked with coaches & trainers in the past, but I feel like I could be gaining better results. I'm looking for something different, & I'm open to trying a new approach.
I feel lost in my life. I have motivation, and a million ideas, but I don't know what's right for me.
I want to create a life & a lifestyle truely reflects ME.
I have no idea why, but this kind of work seems intriguing to me.
To be honest, many women come to work with me not knowing why they want to. They say they simply felt drawn to. I say trust that!
Want to connect with, & be blown away, by your body's wisdom?
Yay! You can choose to work with me face to face (highly recommended, particularly if you live in Melbourne), or online. Simply email, phone/text, or connect with me on social media.
