“I recently participated in Rachelle Garcia Seliga’s 4-day INNATE Postpartum Care teachings, which I found very insightful and invigorating. Her teachings are filled with rich wisdom from her lineage and years of learning from midwives who shared with her. She took us on a journey of human hope that is filled with compassion. She reminded us that the truth and answer lies within us, if we only listen to our inner voices and to the many ancestors who traveled the path of truth and freedom. Her teachings are inspiring and empowering us to fight for taking back our rightful role as life givers, nurturers who possess the power and the beauty that was bestowed by our Creator. I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in the sacredness of women teachings of the past, those developed from old-age and time-tested wisdom of many generations, that continue to guide us today by teachers like Rachelle.”

Testimonials: Holistic Well-Women Care

“I had been experiencing heaviness and discomfort in my womb for many months, and was referred to Rachelle through a mutual friend. I had never experienced Holistic Pelvic Care before, but I was intrigued and had the sense that this would be healing for me. I’m so happy that I followed my intuition on this one.

Over the course of 6 months and 5 sessions, I experienced deep inner healing, empowerment, and release of the discomfort. It’s hard to describe what all unfolded as it was a very personal and internal journey, and the womb can be a mysterious place. I can say that I tapped into my womb wisdom in a whole new way, experienced the activation of my feminine lineage which created healing for myself and my mother, and came away with a sense of deep connection to myself and a feeling of sovereignty in my womb that I had never known. I feel empowered by this now unshakeable connection to my womb, my source, my feminine core.

Rachelle is a gentle and present guide and I felt held and seen in each session. In my opinion, Holistic Pelvic Care is something every woman can benefit from. Being able to access the womb in a safe and non-sexual way with the guidance of a wise woman like Rachelle is a true gift that can really accelerate our collective and personal healing. I have recommended Rachelle to my dearest friends, and I can’t think of a better woman to journey in this area with than her.”

“I am 53 years old and throughout every stage of my womanhood I have been met with hardship and misery. Through the experience of Holistic Pelvic Care with Rachelle, I could feel an unearthing of truth open within.

I felt tension, mystery and message come forth. My left ovary gave me a message with a picture and we began to cleanse the past. My right ovary brought a different picture but same message as the cleansing continued. My uterus birthed a yellow rose bud that was beginning to open. As the energy flowed graciously in my womb I bowed in gratitude for this healing, this blessing. While in gratitude my womb energy moved upwards and connected with my third eye. No words can really describe the sacredness of this moment. It is pure bliss and joy to feel alive inside my womb. Warmth and nurturance covered my Being. My energy was alive, connecting to my body, mind and spirit. I knew in that moment that my intuition had been awakened. I remembered what it was like to feel like a Woman, fully connected in my womb, heart and third eye.

Being given the opportunity to remember wisdom, love of self and other has opened many doors as a result of this session with Rachelle. I have had another Holistic Pelvic Care session as well as Maya Abdominal Therapy with Rachelle. Deeper spiritual connection has occurred as well as the release of physical pain in the sacrum. I encourage every woman to connect with their own mystery in any way possible. This form of treatment will surely bring you to the altar of yourSelf within.”

“When I met Rachelle I was in my late 30’s- I had a history of trauma and had spent most of my life out of my body. I was disconnected, anxious, had issues with my cycle, had vaginal pain, numbness and dryness, and just felt a general sense of being lost in this world. I scheduled my appointment to have some work done on my abdomen, as I had severe diastsits recti (separated abdominal muscles) after the birth of my 3rd child. My abdomen was mostly numb, especially around the scar from the emergency c-section I had to have with my 2nd child. I was looking for answers. No one in the medical community had helped, not with my numbness, my pain during intercourse, my lack of desire, my disconnection, and now, most recently, my separated abs.

I’ll never forget my 1st appointment with Rachelle- she held my hand, rubbed my belly, and reintroduced me to the pieces of me I had left long ago. I sobbed, huge tears falling from my face for almost the entire session. My womb was out of alignment, my internal vaginal muscles were tight on one side and loose on the other, and I had little feeling in my labia and my belly. Over the course of a year, I met with Rachelle regularly. She did her healing work and held space for me to walk this journey back to reconnecting with this sacred space I held inside of me. She guided me to places where I left feeling freer than I had ever felt before. She taught me regular practices to do at home throughout my cycle and helped me to relearn how to take care of my almost 40 something year old female body. She inspired me to learn more about my body, to seek information and to share it with other women. Rachelle has forever changed the way I look at my body and feel in my body. Thank you Rachelle for your deep deep knowledge; you are a true gem and a pioneer in bringing back this sacred knowledge.”

“After having an abortion that was both emotionally and physically very heavy, I was looking for ways to take care of myself and heal. The doctor who performed my abortion mentioned that I had a “retro-flexed” uterus, and told me it was likely the source of the cramps during my menses. I was having difficulty after the abortion emotionally. I was more cut off and disconnected from that part of my body than I had ever experienced.

I had no experience with Mayan Abdominal Therapy or Holistic Pelvic Care. I was interested in Mayan abdominal therapy because I have always struggled with intense craps during my menses, and I had started to do some research on what a “retro-flexed uterus” was, and I was interested in learning about how I could help myself. I was interested in Holistic Pelvic Care to reconnect with yoni. I couldn’t release the physical and emotional trauma related to my abortion. I had always connected to my yoni in a positive way, and I felt sad that I felt so disconnected and numb from my own body.

There are not words to express the relief I felt after the Holistic Pelvic Care. I was able to release the shame surrounding my abortion, and was able to reconnect to my yoni with love, warmth and compassion. That is not to say that I did not need to continue working through those feelings of shame and pain again, but I had the tools to release those emotions from my physical body and to reconnect with my yoni in a safe and loving way when necessary. What I did not anticipate was that I started to do internal vaginal massage with myself regularly even after I felt a wholeness and peace with my abortion. What I also didn’t anticipate was that I started to connect and grow in my sexuality in a new and much deeper and compassionate way. This has expressed itself as a deepened relationship to my sexuality both with myself and with my partner.

Mayan Abdominal Therapy has been huge for me. I literally had no idea where my ovaries or uterus were location prior to the session. Rachelle taught me how to do self-care. She encouraged me to look within, to tune into my own body and instincts. I have been doing self-care regularly for almost two years, and have since taken the introduction self-care class for Mayan Abdominal Therapy. When I do the self-care massage 1-2 times per week, my cramps are significantly reduced during my period. I used to take up to 4 ibuprofen per 4-6 hours on the first day of my cycle. If I do the self-care regularly I do not need to take any pills now. For me that is a huge quality of life change. It has helped me to completely change my attitude and feelings towards my menstrual cycle. I used to dread and even fear my menstrual cycle. Now it is something that I deeply love and respect and have immense gratitude for. When I look back and reflect, I can see that I was literally in fear and in battle of my own body on the first day of my cycle for almost 18 years. In contrast, I now respect and honor my cycle.

Rachelle is amazing in her work. I felt safe, and held, but most importantly empowered. Rachelle has guided me through her teachings and recommended readings to find the power in me, to listen to by body, my heart and my soul as my ultimate source of healing and wisdom. She is an amazing human, and it has been an honor to learn and share with her.”
