Holistic Core Restore® Diastasis

“After 2 fairly large babies and around 5 years of trying various diets and exercise regimes that just weren’t working, a friend recommended Emma who uses The Burrell Method for Diastasis Healing. I was quite sceptical as I thought I had tried every method going, apart from begging the NHS to stitch me back together. However, from the first meeting Emma offered advice and a sympathetic ear. Although my gap wasn’t huge, it felt huge. I felt out of proportion when I looked in the mirror, my ribs ached, my hip hurt and half way through the day I would begin to collapse in the middle!

Emma put together a tailor-made exercise plan for me to follow at home, and offered nutritional advice to help heal the gap. It was not before my aches and pains went away, my gap lessened slowly and I felt so much better about myself! Emma stayed in contact between sessions to offer encouragement and advice. It was hard work and require discipline at home, but the results are worth it.”

These are my favourite clients to work with. If all the recommendations are taken on board the results are amazing!

What is Diastasis?

Diastasis is stretching of the abdominal wall muscles and connective tissues (tendons, fascia). It is usually associated with the period post-birth as the abdominal wall has had to stretch to accommodate the growing baby.

It affects the muscles of the abdominals and other connective tissue such as fascia and the aponeurosis (a type of tendon) connected to each of the layers of abdominal muscles.

There are aponeurotic layers at the midpoint of all the layers of the abdominal wall muscles, the Rectus Abdominis, Internal and External Obliques and the TVA and, when testing for a Diastasis, when you find an especially deep one, your fingers can be passing through several layers of the abdominal wall midline not just the Rectus Abdominis! — Source: Burrell Education 2013
