A sure sign of a diastasis is:
- When you are repeatedly asked if you’re pregnant…… when you’re not!
- Having an outie belly button. This is a side effect of a diastasis recti.
- Back problems. Connective tissue is not a good support system for your back.
- Gastrointestinal problems. The intestines are now supported by connective tissue instead of muscles.
The Tupler Technique® program is all about healing the connective tissue.
Closing a diastasis does not guarantee it will stay closed. The belly button is a weak spot in the connective tissue. If you use your abdominals incorrectly, and put force on this weak spot, you can cause your diastasis to re-open your diastasis. So it is crucial to do the other three steps of the program for the rest of your life.
Listen to Kelly Dean’s story - She is a physical therapist based in the USA who became a Tupler Technique® licensee because of how the programme changed her life. She had a very severe diastasis. In her before and after photos you will see that her tattoo has moved in the process of closing her diastasis.
