Did you know that 50% of women over 50 suffer from some degree of prolapse? Furthermore, recent research commissioned by Pelviva confirmed 2 in 3 women over 40 suffer from bladder weakness?
Many of these women do not understand that there is a solution to their problem. PfilAtes, developed by Board Certified Urogynecologist Dr. Bruce Crawford, can improve these symptoms in less than a month. Continued use of PfilAtes will resolve bladder leaks within 3 months in 80% of clients. Likewise, patients with mild to moderate prolapse are likely to improve symptoms by using the PfilAtes method.
So why not add PfilAtes to your skill set and be at the forefront of something new and exciting that can help change women’s lives and transform your business?
