People are talking...talking 'bout people....

Pelvic floor physical therapy is an essential skill needed by PTs who treat men and women with sexual health issues. Alcove Education provides quality learning in issues of pelvic floor affecting both men and women. The leaders of Alcove are passionate, knowledgeable women with the foresight to regularly include guest faculty, such as me, with expertise to complement that of the Alcove Faculty."

As a physician who has seen more than 1400 women and men with complex pelvic, genital and sexual pain disorders, I highly respect and endorse what Alcove Education's mission stands for. Evidenced based education that seeks to unite pelvic floor physical therapists with physicians and other health care providers is an excellent goal that will result in far better outcomes for the millions of sufferers of these all too common illnesses."

"Sara Sauder is leading this generation of pelvic health specialists. She thinks critically and continuously strives to learn. To give back to the community, she condenses what she learns and shares the information through her blog, social media, and this course. The information is evidence-based and the discussions in class are engaging and thought provoking. I highly recommend this course for pelvic floor physical therapists regardless of their years of experience."

" I enjoyed your course this weekend! I thought you both were informative, professional and entertaining! Honestly, it was one of the best courses I've attended!"
Steven Metzger CMT, RN
"As a male therapist in a course with assessment and treatment of female genitalia, I was not only accommodated, but welcomed. The instructors created a comfortable environment for me as a male therapist in mostly female students. This is the best lab for learning that I have taken. The interest of the instructors, along with their involvement in the lab ensures a high level of learning."
Kimberlee Sullivan PT, DPT, WCS, BCB-PMD
"LOVED this class. I felt as a physical therapist who has been practicing over 10 years in pelvic floor rehabilitation that it challenged my thought and changed the way I practiced. I learned evaluation and treatment techniques that I not only used with my patients diagnosed with vestibulodynia but pelvic pain in general. I highly recommend this class if you are looking for something to bring you to the next level of your practice."
Diving into the Pelvic Floor Student
"This is my first continuing education experience and, as a student, I found it to be extremely helpful. It helped me to take information that was new and see how it can be immediately helpful throughout the process of examination, evaluation, decision-making and treatment. I feel that the information was very effectively organized, making it easy to see how to use skills clinically immediately. Jessica and Jamille had lots of energy and passion to keep the lectures interesting and engaging."
