Why and who should attend this course?
Although it is most prevalent in postpartum women, Diastasis Recti can affect both men and women. This course is for all populations.
Designed for physiotherapists and fitness professionals, The Center Method™ for Diastasis Recti Recovery program investigates the history, anatomy and epidemic of diastasis recti, commonly known as a separation of the rectus abdominus muscles.
What may cause Diastasis Recti?
Trauma, falls, accidents, childbirth, belly button piercings (yes) and surgery can affect the fascial pull through the body and over time present with a dysfunction such as diastasis recti. It is not a condition only present in pregnancy.
The approach uses 4 protocols – Relax, Release, Realign, Restore. Altum is the only clinic offering the module “Rocking and Rolling to Release”, which is also a pre-requisite to all specialist certifications under The Center for Women’s Fitness.

Allow you to guide your client through release techniques that will help with restrictions and tension created by trauma. Since we now know that DR is primarily a fascial dysfunction, the Rocking and Rolling to Release™ course will offer you releases that have been shown to aid in the recovery of a DR.
Support your Floor™ – our pelvic floor course takes you through the anatomy and physiology of the pelvic floor and informs you of the normal functioning of a healthy pelvic floor. The pelvic floor and abdominal wall function as a unit and having a greater understanding of the pelvic floor will inform you as to the function and/or dysfunction of the abdominals, especially if the client has a diastasis recti. This course will lay the foundation of the fascial connections through the pelvic floor into the abdominal wall and beyond.
The Diatasis Recti Recovery module will connect the dots to create a whole body solution to the problem of DR. This course will give you the protocols and necessary rehabilitative exercises needed to begin the journey back to health. The combined modules offer a more comprehensive perspective for healing this condition.
Day 1 Rocking and Rolling to Release
This course is the introductory level to our myosfascial release techniques. It uses functional movement with or without the gentle pressure of small balls, to release fascial restrictions. This non-aggressive hands-off approach to release, trains you to be able to offer your client the ability to achieve a tension free body in the quiet of their own space.
The rocking movements move the body with rhythmical breath and gentle rocking to facilitate release. Each rocking sequence can be made more dynamic with stronger movements and a more forceful breath; however, all movements are created without tension, with no alignment cues to follow and no forced range of motion required. This is a starting point for your client’s body to take the lead in unwinding the restriction. Using breath, pace and flow, we will endeavor to active the body’s innate sense of moving freely through space.
The rolling is designed to utilize the pressure of balls to facilitate release. The balls are placed in specific positions and functional, rocking movement is created to aid in release. The balls used in this course have different textures. One is semi hard and the other is a soft inflatable ball. Throughout the program, these balls can be used interchangeably to offer pressure, support and movement.
Day 2 Support your Floor
This course will lay the foundation for all the other course in our program. We will look at the female pelvic floor from a functional and healthy standpoint and use this as a reference point for any dysfunction that may occur throughout your client’s life. We aim to demystify the application of the function of the pelvic floor muscles to movement and show you how the pelvic floor functions normally and naturally with your breath and every activities
Day 3 The Center Method for Diastasis Recti Recovery
