Denise Buslach, CMT
Through my life’s journey having been raised in Seattle and then traveling and living around the world, I have been graced with the opportunity to engage in many discussions with women from different cultures, languages and nationalities.
These interactions bring the realization of how much we, as women, unquestioningly trust and follow allopathic medicine. Adding my own experience of birthing my children at home and in the hospital of and continually encountering issues initiating breastfeeding, I was thrust into learning more and more about these events occurring in my life. Through friends and a great midwife, I was introduced to two excellent books early on in my childbearing years: The Ecology of Breastfeeding and Natural Child Spacing and Essential Exercises for the Childbearing Year. These books provided me personally with a clear path for my own self care while also setting the foundation for further studies into women’s health. From there, I began indirectly coaching women with tips about birthing, questioning their health care specifically during pregnancy and delivery, episiotomies, and lactation etc.
Fast forward to learning the therapeutic benefits of touch and to my new found passion of massage therapy, specifically The Arvigo® Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy and multiple forms of cupping. I have been able to focus and define my skills towards empowering women with a deeper understanding of their bodies, and hopefully, continual improvement of their health.
We do so much to take care of themselves during pregnancy, but after birth, we are expected to be up and running full speed ahead without looking back regardless of the outcome of our birth experience. Little do we realize that we can be in a state of postpartum years after childbirth as a result of our bodies not given the proper care to get back into a state of physiological balance. This is often manifested as low back pain, menstrual pain, painful sex (experienced by 30% of women) as well as the affects of a multitude of surgical procedures (even noninvasive ones). Yet, women are often told the pain and discomfort we experience is just a fact of life for women, and thus, we are expected to “live with it.” From my studies, connecting the dots that cause discomfort within our bodies has been quite eye opening. I truly believe Arvigo® Therapy, cupping and medical massage are all viable natural therapies that treat the cause rather than the symptoms while assisting women at all stages of their lives using the body’s natural processes to heal and restore their health.
I am a huge proponent of giving back to ourselves and self care should be number one. Starting with and empowering our own hands, we have so many resources available for self care. After all, women are, more often than not, the caregivers, nurturing their children and husband while juggling work and home. No matter how hard we try, we cannot pour from empty cups!
As I meet more women and witness their stories, I am so thankful to be able to relate with women through my own life experiences and honored to be a part of theirs. I look forward to sharing my passion with you."
