Pelvic Floor Therapy – Michele Forsberg, PT

pelvic floor therapy feminenergy michele forsberg

Michele’s expertise in Pelvic Floor Therapy & her FeminEngery® program can help you get your foxy back!

Michele Forsberg specializes in working with women who struggle with various conditions involving pelvic and abdominal dysfunction, pain, and trauma.  She revels in helping her patients connect with their bodies and start enjoying life again. She is highly sought out by local patients as well as out-of-state and international clients for her eclectic whole-body hands-on approach. 

MIchele has been a licensed physical therapist for over 20 years and comes from a professional dance background where her love for movement and the body began. She started Align PT, in Longmont, CO in 2012.

She is also the founder of the FeminEnergy® Program for women’s empowerment and pelvic health education.

About FeminEnergy® Through Michele’s work, and her own personal experience, she began to realize how common it is for women to let pain and suffering go unnoticed, leading them to disengage from their bodies, from the natural beauty and power that resides within. Women also tend to not discuss their issues, keeping them bottled up inside. 

What Michele also realized is that many of women display a common postural pattern of physical and emotional holding in the pelvic muscles and organs, that when released, can bring about more feelings of joy, empowerment, and self-confidence.

FeminEnergy® was created out of a desire to give women a more in-depth journey into the female body than is possible in one-to-one appointments. It combines an intelligent progression of movement practices yoga, strength, dance, with pelvic education, and a deep dive into shifting the emotions and mindset that keep us playing it small. We magnify the healing nature of the program through connection and sisterhood with other women.

The Bella Santini Chronicles – Angela Legh

Bella Santini Chronicles - Angela Legh

Utilizing Fantasy Fiction to help kids better process their emotions, that’s The Bella Santini Chronicles.

Angela Legh‘s gift is in knowing how to speak with children and their parents from her heart; telling them of the magic they have inside. Her books open the hearts of readers and expand their awareness of their own inner worlds.

She tirelessly speaks of the importance of processing emotions, teaching young children how to do that in her books, The Bella Santini Chronicles fairytales.

Angela grew up with an alcoholic father and an angelic mother. Her family home burned down when she was six. Because her parents couldn’t find a place to live, she was sent to foster care for a few months. Because she was ripped out of her family, she believed she didn’t deserve love. After high school she married an older man; things were good for a while. But over time he began to control her; his criticism couched in “helpful” terms, but the message remained, she didn’t deserve love. She stayed in this emotionally abusive marriage for over 32 years, because she admittedly did not value herself above others. 

She was pushed outside of her comfort zone, again by a fire. The Tubbs fire of 2017 destroyed her community and her family home.  When she was stripped of everything except the relationship, she had to face the fact that she was not being served in the relationship. She left the marriage and began a path of self-healing. She started writing her story, with the intent of helping others to achieve self-acceptance, forgiveness, and healing. This awakened her creativity and has resulted in her current project – a series of children’s books: The Bella Santini Chronicles

Her book series, The Bella Santini Chronicles, a fairytale aimed at ages 8-11, teaches children the importance of processing their emotions and gives them the tools to process their feelings. The book series delves into complex topics, such as child abandonment, bullying, sibling rivalry, and good vs. evil. Readers build emotional muscle and set a path of wellbeing that allows them to navigate the difficult teen years without seeing suicide as a solution to their problems.

The Fibromyalgia Solution – Chris Volesky, L.Ac

Fibromyalgia Solution

Fibromyalgia isn’t foxy. But, the Fibro Solution is!

Co Founder of TCM Hub and of Fibro Solution, Licensed Acpuncturist, Chris Volesky, is an expert in helping people suffering from Fibromyalgia. As a child, Chris dealt with chronic pain and debilitating migraines. Being involved in a couple of car accidents didn’t help his pain much either. Excessive use of acetomenophins eventually led to him getting pancreatits in his early 20’s. Luckily, his Chiropractor suggested he try Acupuncture. And this fascinated him, leading Chris into studying Traditional Chinese Medicine for himself.

He received his Masters Degree of Oriental Medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences University. While there, he had the privilege of doing acupuncture for multiple clinics, the Salvation Army, and the Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute, where he treated people suffering from brain and spinal cord injuries. Chris was also fortunate enough to be one of only a few practitioners who had the chance to work in-patient at Woodwinds Hospital, specializing in post-surgical pain management.

Later on, he was hired by CMC-NorthEast hospital where he saw patients in all areas of the hospital (neurology, post-surgical, oncology, etc.). He created a treatment program designed to help those suffering from fibromyalgia syndrome and other autoimmune diseases. 

Today Chris runs a successful TCM practice in Longmont, CO and teaches other Acupuncturists how to support, serve, and treat those suffering from Fibromyalgia.
