Who We Help
A Note from Justine Calderwood, Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist
“Hi sweet lady! What brought you here? Are you looking for some pain relief or help during pregnancy or postpartum, regardless of how long it’s been since you gave birth? As a mom of two girls, I understand where you may be at. Before my husband and I decided to start our family, I remember the prayers I said, hoping for babies of our own to love and take care of.
During pregnancy I felt so much worry, for being able to have the birth experience I wanted and whether I was going to be a “good mom”. I ate right, I read up on all the stages of pregnancy and eagerly awaited my little ones. I was not at all prepared for the physical, emotional and mental demands being a mom would require of me. On top of that, I had been suffering from daily headaches since my early 20’s, and the demands of motherhood made my headaches intensify. I soon found myself exhausted, unhappy and in more pain.
I found a solution to my chronic pain (and pelvic floor concerns…I can thank my kids for giving me those) which I have since used to help hundreds of other women live with less pain and with more joy. I love to help women navigate through whatever it is they’re worried about and struggling with physically and emotionally.
I help women with chronic pain of the back, hips, pelvis and neck feel better again, even if they’ve tried other things that didn’t work in the past. I help women with fertility concerns be successful during the conception process; moms who weren’t sure they would ever become moms. I get to see their precious babies grow and the joy they have brought to their families; it’s indescribable the joy I feel at being a part of their story. I am also beyond blessed to help pregnant moms relieve pain and help prepare their bodies for childbirth, whatever mom has envisioned as her ideal birth experience (at home, in a birth center or at the hospital). And I help new and seasoned moms throughout different stages of motherhood; from early postpartum recovery to helping moms rebuild core and pelvic floor strength, heal diastasis, reconnect with spouse/partner, heal incontinence, manage prolapse symptoms and even improve breastfeeding success.
As I mentioned, part of my “mom story” includes years of chronic pain; daily, unrelenting headaches to be exact. They started long before I became a mom and worsened as the demands I placed on myself as a mother grew. I worried that they would never go away and I lost hope because the physicians, specialists, medications, injections, rest, exercise, and even dental work didn’t help me. I finally discovered a natural, gentle, holistic approach to healing that started unraveling years of restriction, tension and pain and uncovered the root cause of my issue. That’s when things started to change and I found an unrelenting passion for helping other women who are in the spot I used to be in. That’s why I’m passionate about helping you and why I went on to become a Certified Birth Healing Specialist Physical Therapist and Reiki Master Practitioner.
I want you, too, to feel great! I want to help you feel confident and strong and balanced as a mom and heal whatever issues you may be currently experiencing!

“I started going to Justine about 4 months ago after the birth of my daughter back in the spring. My initial goal with my treatments was simply to heal a prolapse and the “open” feeling I had so that I could get back to the high intensity workouts I loved doing pre pregnancy.”
