The female body is a mystery... but why should it be? It's 2019 and time to get to know the real you. Physiotherapist Lulu Becker is helping women do just that. She's dedicated her practise to taking care of those uncomfortable things so many women try to ignore like painful sex, incontinence and pelvic health. It's remarkable how many women feel isolated and alone when facing common issues. Ladies, if you're in need of a women's health practitioner, we've go just the gal for you! Let's get to know her a little better as #OSKEasks...
NAME: Lulu Becker
DAY JOB: Woman's Health Physio
WHAT’S THE CLOSEST THING TO REAL MAGIC
Watching my girls (age 18 months & 3.5yrs) playing and laughing together, and then giving each other a spontaneous hug ♡
DESCRIBE YOUR GIRLBOSS MOMENT.
Being co-author of a book that is available to purchase on Amazon.
And when a lady last week said “5 different ladies I know have insisted I come and see you, so here I am.”
HOW DID YOU LEARN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A WOMAN?
I continue to learn this every day through the women I treat. In the stories I hear of loss, love, kindness, hard work, selfless giving and sacrifice, in each woman’s quest to be the best mama, partner, sister & friend possible.
WHO TAUGHT YOU WHAT LOVE IS?
My Dad always said to us while growing up: “Just remember that no matter what happens, you can always come home to reset and restart at life if you need to.”
The knowledge that I can always return to a physical and emotional place of unconditional love has allowed me to follow my heart and dreams, even when it’s felt terrifying.
WHAT IS INTIMACY?
A reassuring nod across a room.
Coffee in bed after offering to get up early with the kids.
Kindness, laughter & the occasional reassurance that everything is going to be ok.
WHAT DID YOUR MOTHER TEACH YOU?
That quality time = LOVE
The important of regularly connecting with friends & family around a big, noisy dinner table with home cooked food.
To prioritise time spent being creative, and the importance of having your home (& garden) as an extension of your self-expression and creativity.
To protect and nurture my family above all else.
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR BODY THAT YOU WISH YOU’D ALWAYS KNOWN?
I need to love my body as it is right now, in all its imperfection, if I ever want to mould it closer to what I may deem as perfection.
