It was by pure luck that I came to see Helen at the Whitehart Clinic. I was having some coffee while reading the Sunday Times when the headline “Inside Job” and “stressed vagina” in the first paragraph caught my attention. Ten weeks had gone since I had an unlucky medical emergency while on holiday: a water filled cyst was blocking my Urethral opening and I was unable to pass water. There was no way around surgery, luckily it was a minor procedure. Two weeks later I had a scan with an Urogyneacologist to confirm everything had healed but 10 weeks on I was still feeling an uncomfortable sensitivity nobody was able to explain. Sure, I could just learn to live with it but the thought of painful sex just made me nervous. So I decided to start looking for any alternative treatment options like chinese medicine, shiatsu, kinesiology and tantra massage.
At first I wasn’t convinced if the Whitehart clinic was the right place as I thought the MOT was more for women who had just given birth but then I thought I have nothing to lose so why not try. In the end I decided to make an appointment with Helen and she quickly identified I had a trigger point in my pelvic floor muscle that was causing the symptoms.
Even if you are not sure, at the very minimum you will leave with an answer that will get you one step closer to finding a solution. Helen is very approachable and easy to talk to. She is very knowledgable and able to explain the anatomy, causes of pain and treatment options in plain english. No scan, no waiting – just a quick session and an immediate answer. I am also glad I didn’t leave it hoping it would go away some day as Helen explained: six weeks after surgery you should not have any awareness. I was lucky, I came to see Helen early on rather than leaving it. After two sessions, my pelvic floor muscles are in perfect order, no pain and no sensitivity. I would recommend Helen to anyone, even if you are not sure this may or may not be the right treatment. The MOT will get you the answer you are looking for and get you back to health quickly.
