The Shoebox Project

The Shoebox Project: Treat Yo’self By Treating Someone Else

Since opening our doors in September, we have had the privilege of connecting with many women facing a variety of health concerns that leave them feeling isolated and unable to relate to others in their struggles.
Establishing these meaningful connections has inspired us to directly support a cause that is addressing feelings of loneliness and segregation faced by women who are living at or using the services local agencies and shelters in Ottawa.

The Shoebox Project is a simple and creative way to add a bit of sparkle to someone’s holiday, because everyone deserves more than just basic necessities of living.

Sports Performance and the Pelvic Floor

Sports Performance & the Pelvic Floor

As such, all of us, and especially athletes, need a healthy, adaptable and resilient pelvic floor to enhance the capacity of the “deep” or “anticipatory” core muscles (also including the respiratory diaphragm, transverse abdominis, and multifidus) to allow for speed, agility, coordination, and overall performance. Especially due to its close proximity to the deep hip musculature that is used for a lot of sports.
