  • Why the name 1 Below?
    When people talk about problems with bowel, bladder or sexual function, they usually say something like, 'I'm having problems with my downstairs'. Well, to get 'downstairs', you go 1 floor below. To take this metaphor a bit further...sometimes it can be a bit dark 'downstairs', so you don't want to go there alone. 1 Below's mission is to 'turn on the light' and help people feel confident about their 'downstairs'. Check out our Blog to learn more.
  • So 1 Below works with men too?
    Yes, people with penises have pelvic floors too. All people deserve to thrive, especially when it comes to pelvic health, so of course we are happy to help men too!
  • Does 1 Below work with people who aren't pregnant or postpartum?
    Absolutely! We work with all individuals who have a pelvic floor- that's means everyone- including you. We believe everyone deserves the right to understand their body and have optimal pelvic health. Book a free Pelvic Wellness Check-In to learn more and start your journey to pelvic wellness today.

  • I'm in the US, can you be my pelvic floor physical therapist?
    Definitely, I am happy to be your pelvic floor physical therapist. I am a licensed PT in the US.
  • Spreek je Nederlands?
    Ja, ik spreek redelijk goed Nederlands. Ik ben bezig met het proces om mijn fysiotherapie licentie hier in Nederland te laten erkennen. Ik hoop eind 2023 of begin 2024 geregistreerd te zijn bij het BIG-register.
  • I'm in the Netherlands, can you be my pelvic floor physiotherapist (bekkenbodemfysiotherapeut)?
    Unfortunately, no. I am not currently licensed in the Netherlands to work as a pelvic floor physiotherapist. Instead, I provide education and coaching about how to improve your pelvic wellness. If you require hands-on assessment and treatment, then I refer you to a local licensed physiotherapist who I work closely with help you achieve your goals.
