Bliss Book Cover

The Bliss of Continence Restored
- This book is based on the “Integral System” by Professor Petros (Australia) and Professor Ulmsten (Sweden) who propose that bowel and bladder problems originate mainly from a damaged vagina or the ligaments, which support it, and not from the organs themselves. While focusing on the treatment of incontinence, this book also provides new insights and treatments for chronic pelvic pain. The book informs women how damaged vaginal ligaments can cause specific problems and how such problems can be cured or improved with a time-efficient pelvic floor regime, or with minimally invasive surgery.
