  • What should I expect for my first visit? What should I bring?
    The initial evaluation is 75 minutes to allow time for full history taking, assessment and if time permitting treatment/exercise. Please bring shorts and t-shirt or tank top for ease with movement and assessment.
  • How long are the sessions?
    Each session is 60 minutes long.
  • What is manual therapy?
    Flora has a certification in Functional Manual Therapy where she is trained to assess the problem area and its interconnectivity with the whole body, focusing treatment on restoring movement and guiding exercises and treatment individually geared towards your specific needs. This training is beyond her Doctorate degrees allowing her the ability to assess pretty much any musculoskeletal injury that affects workers, performers, athletes and parents.
  • How many visits will I need?
    The number of visits will depend on each individual and the chronicity of their symptoms. During the course of treatment, certain conditions may reveal more information in time. A constant dialogue is always encouraged so that each client understands that their participation in their rehab is important for optimal outcomes.
  • Do you take insurance?
    We are an out-of-network provider which means we do not communicate directly with insurance companies. We encourage contacting your insurance to make sure you have out-of-network benefits and what your eligibility for reimbursement will be. At the end of each session, you will be provided with an invoice you may submit for reimbursement. Please call or email for rates.
  • What should I bring to prepare?
    Patients need not worry as during the session clients are draped and undressed only from the waist down. This will provide clear visibility of the vulva and vaginal canal.
  • What if I have my period during the session?
    Clients have been treated while on their menses and while this does not impact the treatment or the client adversely, they have the liberty to opt out of treatment that day.
  • Is physical therapy safe during pregnancy?
    ACOG (American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology) encourages physical therapy and appropriate exercise training during pregnancy.
  • Is it normal to pee when I sneeze, cough, laugh or run?
    Often times people make the mistake in thinking it this is normal especially if a friend or relative has the same condition. You should be able to do all of these things without worrying about leakage of any kind.
  • Is there any topic when it comes to pelvic pain that is "off-topic?"
    I often tell my clients there is no such thing as TMI (too much information) when it comes to talking about pelvic pain. Topics can include a range of topics from sex, toys, positions and self-pleasure.
  • When I told my provider that I was having ______ after having a baby, they said that was “normal”.
    There are a lot of post-partum conditions that have been normalized often leading parents to believe they are meant to feel the way they do forever.
  • How soon after delivering should I schedule a physical therapy appointment?
    Clients are seen days after delivering and up to years later.
  • How soon can scar massage begin following a c-section or vulva tearing?
    Most sutures require 6 -8 weeks of time for healing. Scar mobilization is safe and effective once all sutures have dissolved and healed.
  • I have been leaking urine for years and my kids are now in college. Is it too late?
    NO – it is never too late to assess the muscles of your pelvic floor, treat any old scars or tight muscles and teach them to get stronger if necessary.
