Holistic women's healthcare provider and Holistic Pelvic Care founder Kent offers a groundbreaking yet practical mapping of the female energy system with her first book. In a world in which women are notably absent in "all things worthy of study," Kent argues for the importance of exploring the base of female power. Holistic Pelvic Care was created to help women return to their roots and resolve childbirth trauma, sexual trauma, stress, and other issues. Kent believes that women, using her methods, can access the heart of the feminine, reclaim their sacred selves, and heal. She offers exercises to assess levels of spiritual wholeness, and includes detailed instruction on self-administered pelvic care, which she believes helps women to re-embody the feminine. In her book, Kent proceeds with a solidly New Age vibe, which some readers may mistake for a lack of substance or depth; the focus here is on releasing negative energies from "the pelvic bowl" through self-awareness, breathing, and vaginal massage, which in Kent's practice has yielded positive effects for her clients. Leaders in the alternative women's health movement have already embraced Kent's teachings wholeheartedly, and many readers are sure to follow suit.

Physical therapist Kent, founder of Holistic Health Care, wants to restore a sense of the sacred at each woman�s core. This pelvis-centered self-care book that�s both a health and a spiritual guide helps women find and use the �spirit in our wombs��that is, in the pelvic root of the body�that �opens us to spirit.� This focus, Kent believes, can help women understand their personal relationships with �the wild feminine� as they reclaim the wild energy within. Medical practices, including organ-alignment techniques, along with visualization and body-awareness exercises to restore balance and energy-flow to the pelvic bowl are essential to easing the conflicts women face in a man�s world, Kent claims. She also offers exercises and advice for the development of individual energy pathways to reinforce core radiance and suggests starting a �wild feminine� book club. --Whitney Scott

Tami Kent offers women a practical, holistic, and revolutionary way to make over their relationship with body, mind and soul. This book is one of the first places I've seen discuss how Kegels alone are insufficient for a woman's pelvic health, and how vital it is to relax those muscles. This is especially crucial for women having common symptoms of imbalance that are either ignored or worsened by Kegels until women are recommended surgery for prolapse of some sort.
Wild Feminine also discusses the connection between the emotional and physical body, and how women can reclaim their creativity, power, and energy by listening to their bodies. It's definitely challenging work, but Kent's passion for this topic is very inspiring. Especially the personal stories she includes about the women from her practise who have resolved their own health/life issues with these tools.
Basically, this book teaches women how to value their bodies, and how our voice and decisions impact our health. And if women learned this as teens, imagine the change we could all see in how our daughters handle men, childbirth, careers and stress.
I really can't say enough about how incredible this book is, and how thankful I am to have found it.
