Wellness for pelvic floor and core
no sweating - no workouts - no fancy pants
LET US HELP YOU WITH THESE ISSUES
Are you leaking when you cough, jump, sneeze or lift? Making sure you use the bathroom, "just in case", and getting up in the middle of the night to pee? This is common, but not normal. We can help with incontinence, frequency and urge, and help you maintain the benefits of bladder repair/lift surgery. Read more here...
If you are feeling a heaviness in the pelvis, or bulging in the vagina, or that your pelvic organs feel "out of position", you may have a pelvic organ prolapse. We can help reduce prolapse, and also prevent it following a hysterectomy, mastectomy and/or cancer treatment. Read more here
bladder lift, hysterectomy
Had a bladder lift and it seems to be failing? Hysterectomy didn't solve everything? Read more here...
We can help prepare you for, or help you recovery from hip, knee replacement or back surgery. Changes to your posture, breathing and core strength are significant in successful rehabilitation from surgery. This therapy can also help preventing falls, maintaining your independence and stay in your own home. Read more here...
We can help you breathe better and stronger while you strengthen your respiratory system. This can help with sleep, daily exercise, relying less on CPAP and less snoring. Read more here...
Do you have curved shoulders, a neck hump, back "going out" all the time, tripping, falling, less confidence and less strength? We can help strengthen your back and improve your posture. Read more here....

One to One Coaching
On zoom or in person at our clinic in Creston, BC, Canada
What does one on one coaching involve?
I am committed to an individualized process that works for you.
I begin with hearing your story, your challenges and hopes. I look at your breathing, standing, sitting, daily activities and work, and where you hold tension.
I share information, resources, and insights about your specific challenge. Bladder, prolapse, posture, core, breathing, prevention…etc.
As your coach I choose techniques specific to your challenges and your body. Breathing, noticing habits, adjusting posture are the beginning.
You learn at your own pace, the breath, the poses, and movements and small changes you can make throughout your day. If the apnea/false breath is appropriate for you - you learn that too.
There are handouts and reminders and practice suggestions.. Start to develop a individualized home practice.
For an online appointment you will receive a zoom link and will need a device like a lap top or tablet with a camera.
In person the clinic is at #10 223-16th Ave N, Creston, BC, Canada.
When you book your appointment- you will receive info on how to prepare. You wear comfy clothes and are supported every step of the way.
I invite you to join the many other women who have changed the way they feel, move, and live.
Four appointments (ideally one per week)
gives you a really good start.
Hypopressives are part of the Thrive tool box and are not for everyone. Most people can benefit from the breathing, postural work and relaxation- it is only the apnea/false breath that is of concern. If any of the following apply to you Pregnant, COPD, Hypertension, Transplant, Crohns, IBS, Ehlers Danlos please read more here.
The intro video is an example of an in person session. For a zoom appointment you will be moving your camera around and there will be lots of verbal cues and demos by me to show you what I want you to do. It works!
Pelvic Floor & Core Specialist, Hypopressive Coach
Carmen Ditzler, is the founder and head coach at Thrive and Kootenay Hypopressive. Carmen has a degree in Physical Education, Adapted Physical Activity and Outdoor/Environmental Education. She also holds a Masters in Environmental Education and Lifestyles.
"Practicing Hypopressives for the last six years has been life changing. At 50 in the midst of perimenopause I was falling apart. Through hypopressives and my own knowledge I regained strength in my core and pelvic floor, improved my posture, stopped snoring, lost weight, resolved issues of incontinence and reversed the symptoms of my prolapse, and the frequent urge to pee. I am now able to once again live a full and active life and want others to experience the same freedom. I am a fully certified Hypopressives Trainer and combine hypopressives with tools from kinesiology and adapted physical activity.
I began my practice over 2 years ago. In that time, my clients lives have been transformed".
I coach with compassion, care and individual adaptation. Let me help you change your life!
Appointments available on zoom or in person at our clinic in Creston, BC. Canada. Daytime, evening and Saturday morning times. (MST)
