Throat Chakra healing for Pelvic Pain

Welcome to part 5 of the Chakra Healing for Pelvic Pain series, if you haven't read the previous pieces, you can find them down below!


Today we are diving into the fifth chakra, the Throat Chakra.

The Throat Chakra is located in your, hmm, throat.


Your Throat Chakra: Colour: Blue Element: Ether

Communication Speech Speaking your truth, with yourself and others Self-expression

Physical part: Thyroid gland, mouth, jaw, pharynx, palate, shoulders and neck

When I work on my Throat Chakra it often brings up a lot of emotions, and whenever I've seen a healer my Throat is one of the chakras that is often blocked. I've always had a hard time speaking my truth, and lean into my self-expression.


How may the Throat Chakra be connect to your pelvic pain? I look at it this way, living with pelvic pain, it is often hard to talk about it without tearing up. There is a lot of emotions that lives in it. Speaking your truth with your partner and your health care professional can be extremely difficult, because often we might not feel heard, or we don't know how to explain ourselves - it's hard to communicate properly.

And if we think about where the Throat chakra is located, it affects the entire neck and shoulder area. Many people with pelvic pain also live with TMJ, tense shoulders, some of us living with Lichen Sclerosus also have thyroid issues. There is also fascia that runs from your pelvic floor muscles to your jaw muscles.


If your Throat Chakra is blocked you may experience issues with communication and self-expression, neck and shoulder pain (not backed by science).



What can you do to activate/balance/open your Throat Chakra?


  • Sing

  • Hum (any vibrating sounds will open up the Throat Chakra and is amazing for your Vagus Nerve)

  • RELAX YOUR JAW

  • Use essential oils: Peppermint, Eucalyptus

  • Neck rolls

  • Cat/cow pose

  • Lions breath (breathing practice found in the Pelvic Health Yoga membership)

  • Supported fish pose

  • Thread the needle

Affirmation:

I speak my truth.
