Open a World of Opportunities in the Pelvic Health Specialty


What if there was a clear path to...

* Establishing yourself as an expert in your field

* Escaping inflexible “standards of care” that don’t give you a say in how you treat clients

* And getting seriously motivated clients who come to YOU specifically for your in-demand skills...

If you had the kind of step-by-step guidance that would finally give you the freedom to serve your clients as full human beings and get them back to living and loving life again…

Would you have the confidence to change the trajectory of your OT career?


Your Instructor


Lindsey Vestal
Lindsey Vestal
Hi, I’m Lindsey Vestal, founder of the first in-home pelvic health practice in New York City run by an Occupational Therapist.


At this point in my career, I’ve helped thousands of people overcome chronic pelvic health challenges like incontinence and pelvic pain by empowering women to listen to the wisdom of their own bodies so they can heal and get back to enjoying life again.

But it hasn’t always been easy…

Like a lot of practitioners, in the beginning I thought I needed to be a PT to work in pelvic health. And since that’s what I knew I wanted to do, I set off down the PT path.

Then one day, while I was racking up my mandatory observation hours, my world changed…

The Physical Therapist I had been shadowing called in sick, and the facility director said, “How could you like to shadow an Occupational Therapist?”

The question flashed through my mind…

What the heck is OT?

Little did I know I’d be answering that question for the rest of my life, because after that one observatory session, I knew I had come home.

OT was so much more comprehensive and holistic than anything I had seen during my studies and all my clinical work that, from the first moment I saw it in action...

I knew that Occupational Therapy could heal pelvic health dysfunction more completely than a purely physical approach.

So that day I went home and started filling out applications to OT school.

When I got my acceptance from NYU, I was over the moon!

But when I got there, I realized I had chosen a lonely road. At school I did as many pelvic floor presentations as I could, but my classmates — and even a professor or two — didn’t really understand.

I’d hear things like...

Why do you want to do what PTs do?

And...

Well that’s — (cue raised eyebrows) — interesting.

Or even…

Why do you want to work with pee?!

But I knew that working in pelvic health didn’t have to mean being a PT in OTs clothing. And I knew that pelvic health was much more than just “working with pee.” (That one still makes me laugh!)

The truth is, as OTs no one is better equipped to specialize in pelvic health than we are.

After all, we’ve already been trained to listen to our clients’ unique story and connect on an emotional level — which is essential when you’re talking about a taboo topic like pelvic floor health.

We already know how to look beyond the most obvious symptoms and address the whole person, letting pelvic health clients know we are there to support them — not just tell them what to do.

Plus, we already speak the language of ADLs — toileting, sleep hygiene, self-care, and sexuality!

That means as an OT — regardless of whether you’re just out of school or have been in the game for years — YOU are uniquely qualified to help pelvic health patients connect to their bodies in a whole new way!

The problem is that there hasn’t been a clear path to the pelvic health specialty for OTs.

In the past, OTs specializing in pelvic health therapy had to pave their own way.

If you were an OT who wanted to specialize, you’d have to create opportunities for research in a field that didn’t really even exist.

You’d have to spend all your time and energy hunting down the right resources — they just didn’t exist for OTs!

And you’d have to get creative about finding a mentor. (Maaaybe a PT could help, if you were lucky)...

I know because that’s exactly how I got to where I am today.

And it’s why I’ve gathered just about everything I’ve learned about pelvic health over the past decade and put it all in one place. So now Occupational Therapists who want to specialize in this emerging field won’t have to struggle to find their own way.

Here’s just a little of what you’ll learn in OT Pioneers...

When you enroll in OT Pioneers, you’ll fast-track your understanding of the role of OTs in Pelvic Health, gain an intimate knowledge of pelvic floor function and anatomy, and get instant access to tools for client intake and assessments.

Introduction: Welcome to OT Pioneers!

* Why OTs in pelvic health are definitely NOT “PTs in an OT’s clothing.” Also... get some new ideas about how forging your own path in this emerging field.

* The secret of “Cho Pho Use” and what it can reveal about getting the WHOLE story from your client.

* The ONE question to ask your client that reveals where to target treatment from the first day… Psst, it’s not one of the questions you’re supposed to ask!

Lesson 1: Demystifying the Pelvic Floor

* Why your first client should really be your SECOND client. Pssst… this is my little secret for preparing for that debut client meeting.

* “Stoplight” kegels not working? What you should tell your clients to do instead.

* The pelvic floor’s #1 job (It’s probably not what you’re thinking.)

Lesson 2: Under the Covers — Pelvic Floor Anatomy, Function and Dysfunction

* Prolapse means an organ is popping out? Not always! 6 hidden types of prolapse that aren’t so obvious.

* When NOT to start an exam with the client lying down. And what you should expect to find when your client is standing up.

* The Weight Lifter’s Solution for ineffective kegels. Hint: “pumping up” is not enough (and having a 6-pack doesn’t mean the inner core is in good shape)!

Lesson 3: Mastering Client Intake — Setting Yourself Up For Success

* Your Minimum Viable Practice: All the equipment you’ll need to get started in pelvic therapy … plus which products you should definitely avoid!

* The secret of getting to the truth, even when your client doesn’t understand what the problem is.

* Big ideas about tiny details. The little things you should never overlook if you want more word of mouth referrals and more clients in the door.

Lesson 4: Educating Your Client — Teach Them To Be Their Own Detective

* The Magic Pit Stop Number and the problem with the “just in case” pee.

* What “mom butt” says about your client’s range of motion and what it means when your client is leaning on the sink while doing the dishes.

* The common pelvic health problems I see in dancers, soldiers and athletes. Hint: having strong abs doesn’t always mean the core is engaged.

Lesson 5: Introduction to External and Internal Exams

* The next best thing to hands-on training: Watch this live exam so you can confidently apply your new knowledge in a real world setting!

* Know the right words to say and precisely where to put your hands at each of the 7 stages of external evaluation.

* The exact position to place your examination table that will make your client feel 100% more at ease.

Lesson 6: Introduction to Common Medical Conditions + Diagnosis

* Consider this a “crash course primer” on the 11 common medical conditions you’re most likely to see as a Women’s Health OT.

* An under-diagnosed condition that manifests in 1 in 10 women and could result in infertility.

* The 5th Vital Sign that no one really talks about, but OTs can… and will!

Plus, you’ll get access to these exclusive bonuses…

* My private Facebook community, reserved just for ot pioneers students
* Live kick-off call with Lindsey on Sunday, April 26
* 3 momentum calls with live Q&A to keep you motivated
* Bonus video content like…

* What’s In Lindsey’s Bag?

* What Lindsey Brings To To Workshops And Live Speaking Events

* Dilators, Vibrators, & Wands: When, Why, & How To Use Them

* Let’s Talk About Poop!

* Jessica Wolf’s “The Art Of Breathing” Animation

* 4 hours of recorded coaching calls with Lindsey and other OTs covering strategic interviewing skills and client education
* The top articles I frequently share with my clients
* All the downloadable questionnaires and assessment tools you need to get started
* And more!


Imagine a new world of possibilities — from adding women’s health services as your side gig to opening your own full-service pelvic health practice, or anything in between!

Here’s what OT Pioneers grads are saying...

New OT Jackie is already using what she learned in OT Pioneers to help her home health patients….

“What was appealing for me is it was taught by an OT, as opposed to a physical therapist. I wanted to see how it would be different and to also be motivated that, ‘Oh, this is an area that I could also set my feet in as well’ because I know it’s very PT-heavy.”


10-year veteran OT Sarah wishes she had taken OT Pioneers FIRST, before taking all those other women’s health courses...

“I signed up for Lindsey’s course after taking several other pelvic floor courses, and I really wish I would’ve had access to this first. It’s super easy to access and a non-scary way to see if this is a field that you’re going to get into.”


Joanie actually isn’t an OT, but as a pre/postnatal corrective exercise specialist she was ready to dive right into pelvic health...

“I was like, Hey, can I, can I take this too? Because it’s the information that I want so I can make those proper recommendations and know when someone’s describing certain symptoms that I can refer out. It just makes me a better trainer in the end.”


Kourtney started the course when her daughter was just 5 weeks old. She loved not having to travel and was grateful for the convenient downloadable resources...

“We were given tons of forms and outlines and things that Lindsey uses, so the value of the course goes way beyond just the sessions you complete with Lindsey. I’m going to have all these resources that I’m going to go back to and use throughout my practice.”


This course is closed for enrollment.

Whether you’re just starting to test the waters or you’re ready to dive in head-first and start your own pelvic health practice, here’s the deal…

You’ve got 30 days to put OT Pioneers to the test

Whether you choose a monthly or a one-time plan today, you’ll have until May 25th to try it. If you go through the first 5 lessons, do the homework, and join us for at least one of our weekly Momentum Calls… just send me an email at [email protected]

If after 30 days you still feel like you don’t have the confidence to help your clients improve their pelvic health, we’ll undo this whole pelvic health OT experiment and refund your money back to you right away.

Questions your fellow practitioners have asked before jumping into OT Pioneers

* Can OTs really do pelvic health therapy?

Absolutely! I believe no one is better equipped than an OT to address pelvic health dysfunction. Here’s why…

When it comes to talking about something as intimate as pelvic health, nothing is more important than trust.

In fact, these topics are often overlooked by other practitioners, either because they don’t know how to ask the right questions or because the patient feels uncomfortable bringing them up.

That’s probably why these topics are sometimes called “hand on the doorknob” issues...

By the time a patient finally feels comfortable enough to bring up a problem like incontinence with their doctor, it’s usually just as they are opening the door to walk OUT.

OTs have a real opportunity to flip the script.

Because we’re trained to listen to our clients’ unique stories, connect with them on an emotional level, and take into account the whole person — not just the most immediate and obvious physical symptoms…

OTs are uniquely qualified to empower pelvic health patients to listen to the wisdom of their own bodies so they can heal and get back to enjoying life again.

* Will I be able to make a difference in my client’s lives?

Yes! One of the best things about working in pelvic health is, your clients are seriously motivated.

Think about it…

Peeing, pooping, and having sex are fundamental. Any chronically lingering problem in those areas of life won’t just affect your client’s body. It makes their world smaller and smaller and smaller.

And as you know, OT has such a tremendous effect on human function. When you help a client with a pelvic health issue, you’re giving them back their lives, their loves, and their dignity.

* Will my skills be enough to get hired?

While not everyone who takes OT Pioneers goes on to work exclusively in pelvic health, OT Pioneers grads find they start using what they've learned in the course right away.

The fact is, as OTs we have to address the whole person. So whether you’re working in a hospital, assisted living facility, or in a clinic… pelvic health therapy is a huge part of what our clients need.

You don’t have to open your own pelvic health practice (though I’ll be your biggest cheerleader if you do!) but you might just find that — once word starts spreading about your new skills, pelvic health clients may start seeking you out specifically.

Regardless, when you become an expert in pelvic health, you can better serve your clients, whatever your current role.

* Will OT Pioneers prepare me for Herman & Wallace PF1?

It sure can! I've heard from many OTs that the course gave them the confidence to walk into Herman & Wallace programs feeling just as prepared as anyone else in the class.

I know just the thought of performing an internal exam can make some OTs feel like they have two left hands! So that “hands-on” lab during the Herman & Wallace program can sound pretty intimidating, especially in a room full of PTs who are already pros at “hands-on” work.

That’s why I specifically include a detailed, step-by-step demonstration of an external and internal exam on a live model. You’ll get a clear picture of what to expect from your Herman & Wallace experience.

So if you don't feel quite ready for Herman & Wallace, OT Pioneers is an easy way to get you prepped!

* Do I have to be an OT to take OT Pioneers?

Not at all! In fact, plenty of doulas, midwives, childbirth educators, and fitness professionals have had great success in taking the course and applying it to professions outside of Occupational Therapy. Lots of practitioners can benefit from learning about pelvic health from an OT perspective.

* I’m really busy with work. How much time is this going to take?

Basically, as much time as you’re willing to put into it.

That’s the beauty of taking an online course. There is no travel required (and no hotel costs adding up!) so you can take the course at your own pace.

And bonus…

Unlike a live class, you don’t have to rush to take notes (I always miss something important at live seminars because I’m scribbling to keep up). Just back the video clip up and re-watch the modules as many times as you like!

* I’m a new OT. Is it too soon to take OT Pioneers?

It’s never too early to start exploring a specialty you’re interested in.

In fact, veteran OTs keep telling me how much they wished they had started with this course years ago!

OT Pioneers was created to be a non-scary way to dive into the basics of pelvic health. Wouldn’t you like to know ASAP if this is the field you want to pursue?


I believe the world would be a better place with more OT pelvic health specialists.

And I’m ready to be the resource that helps make that dream come true.

When you enroll, you’ll get immediate information about how to join our LIVE KICK OFF CALL on Sunday, April 26. That’s where you’ll meet your fellow pioneers, get your questions answered, and make sure we all start off on the right foot!

After that call, there will be weekly Momentum Calls where we’ll practice client intake procedures and have plenty of time for Q&A.

I’ve not only designed this program to pass along what knowledge I’ve gained as a pelvic health OT, but I’ve also dedicated myself to staying by your side as a resource as you learn now and as you begin to put your new knowledge into action.

With a 30-day guarantee, there’s little to risk and a whole world of possibilities to gain...

Isn’t it time YOU started exploring pelvic health?

You’ve achieved some pretty amazing things to get to where you are in OT, but you’re not the type to stop learning and growing. So consider this your invitation to partner with me over at least the next 30 days to start deeply exploring pelvic health from an OT perspective and…

* Master pelvic floor anatomy and fast track your understanding of the role of OTs in Pelvic health

* Gain the confidence to interview pelvic health clients and perform external and internal exams without fear

* And finally know for sure if this whole pelvic health specialty is what you’re meant to do!

The Only Pelvic Health Therapy Course Created With OTs In Mind Is Only Available Until April 24th.
