Pelvic Embodiment Sessions: read more
The session is of approximately 2½ hours’ duration and begins with creating a sacred space, checking on how you are feeling and a brief discussion of any issues you may want to offer up for release in the session. A simple grounding and self-connection ritual is held as you set your intention for what you would like to take from the session.
This is followed by a sensual and nurturing full body massage to warm up your body and instil feelings of deep trust and surrender. We then approach your ‘yoni’ externally with full consent, and finally the significant part of the session is reserved for internal bodywork.
The connection between the energy of your heart and yoni (vulva, vagina & womb) is emphasized right through the massage. If there is any step that feels challenging for you, it’s perfectly okay to say No! You are in fact encouraged to practise asserting your true boundaries in this therapeutic space. Various points of your yoni as well as any scar tissue are massaged gently. You may feel pleasure, discomfort and anything in between. It is all completely welcomed and held as sacred. Memories, feelings, images or meanings may come up, and the unexpressed energy of these may be released as tears, vocalization, or spontaneous movement. At other times, particular points may induce waves of nourishing orgasmic energy which may course right through your body.
As we bring the bodywork part of the session to a close, you will be encouraged to remain in a lying position for a few minutes in order to help integrate the experience.
As part of the closing ritual you may want to share about your experience and refine your intentions beyond the session.
The power of a Pelvic Embodiment Session is not to be under-estimated!
Sessions can sometimes induce feelings of tiredness which is usually a sign of toxins being released into your body for clearing as you let go of the bracing in the tissues of your pelvis. It may also reflect to you that you’ve been pushing too hard and travelling on overdrive.
A single session will acts as a circuit-breaker and starting point in what could be a wondrous journey of self-discovery, healing and empowerment. Three-session packages are available to make this possibility more affordable for you. If significant trauma is unearthed, it may be preferable to first opt for sessions of therapy to specifically address trauma and create safety outside of the context of pelvic bodywork.
There are particular women who are ready for this level of bodywork.
- are curious about your internal space and the capacity your body holds for pleasure
- want to fully embrace your sexual sovereignty and dispel any shame or guilt around sexuality
- want to experience more sensation and aliveness inside your yoni or vagina
- want to awaken your orgasmic potential
- want to shift old habits of self-pleasuring that are limiting
- want to explore energetic orgasm
- want to feel more connected to the power of your womb and vagina
- want to practise a felt sense of boundaries in relation to your body and sexuality
- want to reclaim your womb and vagina during transitions post-natally, through menopause or following the end of a relationship
- want to engage in an holistic approach to scar tissue remediation
- want to prepare your body for the potential of ecstatic if not orgasmic birth
- who understands that our bodies hold layers of untold stories in the form of pelvic tension
- are open to being touched in an intimate but non-sexual way by a practitioner
- take responsibility for your own healing and empowerment
As we haven’t yet recreated the Goddess Temples of the past where this woman-to-woman transmission was the norm, it would be natural to have a distinct reaction to the notion of a Pelvic Embodiment Session!
It may be one of curiosity, excitement, anxiety, self-judgement, overwhelm, guilt, shame or a mixture of these. An initial ‘phone conversation is therefore an essential first step to knowing if a session is right for you.
A Pelvic Embodiment Session is a gift to yourself as a woman and can be received at any age or stage of life including the final six weeks of pregnancy where it is modified to avoid the area of your cervix. The only circumstances that would preclude you from a session are if you have an active STI or full blown sexual or birth trauma. In the latter situation, a course of trauma-specific therapy is recommended to build a sense of safety and capacity in your body before specifically approaching your pelvic area.

Choosing Nisha to be our doula was one of the most enlightened decisions we made. Having her support in the lead up to birth, during labour and in the weeks following the arrival of our daughter was invaluable. Nisha’s heart and soul are in her work. Her love, sensibility and intuition helped me to tap into my feminine power and climb the mountain that is labour and birth. It was Nisha’s wise whispers of encouragement during labour that helped me find my strength and self-belief to keep going and birth my angel girl exactly as I’d envisaged.
I have known Nisha for several years and am amazed at the serenity I
experience in sessions. Nisha has wonderful gifts from the healing arts. She is exceptionally intuitive in her counselling and has helped me to trust in myself. Through Somatic Experiencing and bodywork we have begun to unravel trauma that I have been carrying heavily for over four decades. Nisha is a truly gifted healer.
Nisha's loving and nurturing touch is a treasure to experience whilst
pregnant and is quite unlike many other pregnancy massages I've experienced. Nisha goes far and beyond to ensure you leave feeling relaxed and completely nurtured.
Primal Mama provided the space for me to go exactly where I felt called to in my birth preparation - out of my head and into my body, pleasure and primal nature and birthing instincts. Such valuable places to connect with as I prepare to birth my first child, particularly these days with so much information bombarding birthing women and keeping us in our thinking mind.
Thank you, Nisha for offering this space!
I was immediately drawn to the Birthing Bliss retreat day for it’s physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual content. Nisha brings a great range of credentials and experience, and her passion for women’s work, natural warmth and openness made me feel safe and confident in the space.
Nisha took us on a journey of self-discovery and self-empowerment while nurturing our intuition and primal instincts. It was a perfect mixture of learning practical techniques, expressing feelings, deep relaxation and connecting with other like-minded mothers. An extremely valued experience that I wish I’d found in my first pregnancy.
I would highly recommend this day to all women no matter how they plan to birth. They will definitely take something special from it.
At five months of my pregnancy, I took the time to nurture myself and my growing belly and was so thankful I did.
My experience with Nisha was lush, gentle, loving and attentive – all the things an aching, pregnant body needs.
To say I was completely moosh after the session is an understatement.
The experience was unlike any other bodywork I’ve tried before. It touched and uplifted me on emotional, physical and energetic levels. The impact remained for some days after.
Nisha has an unquestionable gift as a bodyworker and counsellor. Her knowledge, commitment to her clients and passion for her work is evident in her presence.
