"Today we are joined by the marvelous Christina Walsh of Tighten Your Tinkler! (what an awesome name right?)

Published researcher, Physical Therapist, and manual integrative therapist, Christina has 15+ years of experience in the holistic health space. Together with her Tighten Your Tinkler cofounder (EP + author Jenn Lormand), Christina developed a revolutionary movement-based protocol that allows her to manage her prolapse in a way that lets her forget she even has it.

Jenn and Christina helped hundreds of New Orleans women reduce and eliminate pelvic floor issues before going online in 2019. The Journal of Women’s Health Physical Therapy featured their research, confirming the effectiveness of their protocol at ending pee leaks, back pain, and painful sex – WITHOUT kegels or trendy internal vaginal devices."

"Do you have friends who will have wildly uncomfortable conversations with you?⁠

If not, I have good news. My guests today, Jenn Lormand and Christina Walsh, otherwise known as the Tighten Your Tinkler girls are here to help us understand our nether regions.

They are the friends you want when you’re trying to figure out if peeing while sneezing or coughing is normal (PS no, it’s common but not normal) or how to pull an all-nighter. ⁠

And by "all-nighter" I mean go all night without using the restroom."

"What do we need to know about supporting and healing the pelvic floor?  Is it super complex?

This week, we’re speaking with Christina, one of the creators and trainers of Tighten Your Tinkler. Christina and her business partner Jenn are a Physical Therapist and Exercise Physiologist duo who are dedicated to helping mothers heal their pelvic floors in a way that keeps physiology in mind.

"Having a weak pelvic floor may be affecting your life, your marriage, and your ability to feel comfortable and confident in your body.  Here are some of the topics we explore today:

*How you can feel broken when things “down there” aren’t functioning like they should (or aren’t reliable!)

*How hip pain, back pain, neck pain, bunions and posture issues can all connect with a weak pelvic floor!

*We define prolapse–a condition that affects many women and comes in numbered stages.

*Jenn assures Heather that peeing when you cough, sneeze, or while exercising isn’t a normal and necessary part of aging–and that there is a way to stop it without surgery!"

"I’m so grateful that I got to speak with Jenn about her own experiences and the really fascinating approach/protocol that she and business partner Christina Walsh have developed.

Initially, I giggled when I saw the name “Tighten Your Tinkler” but it got my attention and I think, for many Catholic women who are mothers, this podcast episode will resonate. As with miscarriages, it seems that you don’t realize how common pelvic floor issues are until you say “yes, I’ve had (or am having) those too.” As you’ll hear in this episode, the issues can range from mild to severe, but there is hope no matter which end of the spectrum you may be on!"

"Jenn of Tighten Your Tinkler joins us to talk about the pelvic floor and how pelvic floor dysfunction is something that is common, but not normal. I repeat, NOT NORMAL. If you're seeing signs of pelvic floor dysfunction, that's something you need to start looking into so that it doesn't become a bigger issue later in life.

Personal disclaimer: I signed up for their Signature Program and I cannnot sing its praises enough. I loved the program and it helped with my personal symptoms I was seeing after 2 children. I highly encourage all of you to check out the Tighten Your Tinkler program and consider signing up!"

"Get ready for the most laughs you have ever encountered in a conversation about pelvic floor health.

Plus, did you know your back and hip pain may be due to your pelvic floor?

Many women experience tightness and discomfort in their back, groin, and hips after childbirth. Seeking help, they turn to their doctor - only to be told it is a mild case of some orthopedic issue or that their x-rays look good. But then their pelvic floor and core continue to get weaker, and pain prevents these women from exercising, enjoying intimacy, and living their fullest life. And, even though you may be in your 40s, 50s or beyond, you may still be experiencing the side effects from this.

Nothing is off limits in this conversation!"
