Back in May I travelled to the Netherlands to be a teaching assistant for the Restorative Exercise™ Specialist (RES) Certification Week. I was fortunate to meet so many amazing people from all over the world! One person that made a big impression on me was David McCoid (pictured here on the left). David certified as a RES back in April 2014 and was in the Netherlands for a few days to soak in the learning.
I got to chat with him on our commute one morning and was so blown away by his personal journey out of pelvic pain. As a pelvic health specialist, his experience really lit up for me: David lived with pelvic pain for 14 years, he travelled to see specialists in Italy for prostate injections, and in the US for pelvic PT treatments with renown therapists, and finally had pudendal nerve surgery (3 different times!).
Eventually he found Restorative Exercise™ and he was able to move himself out of pain! I was so inspired by his story that I wanted share his experience. David has asked me to delete his interview because he is not practicing the Katy Bowman method anymore.
