In this conversation, Nick Angeles, a nurse anesthetist, interviews Rachel Russell, an occupational therapist specializing in pelvic floor therapy.

They emphasize the significance of relaxation techniques, particularly breathwork, in addressing pelvic floor dysfunction. Rachel emphasizes the long-term commitment required for pelvic floor therapy and the need for ongoing self-care.

Amanda Kotsura, LISW, from Carve Your Own Path, Inc. talks about setting boundaries with family and the hard, important work of getting along. Though originally pertaining to holiday gatherings, the wisdom from this episode of Ascend Health Show holds for maintaining warmth and trust in all relationships.

Psychotherapist Rodney Long, LISW, is back with Nick Angelis, CRNA, to discuss mental health tech start ups like BetterHelp, Mindbloom, and FieldTrip.
