We are so happy to share with you some of the wonderful results our clients have experienced. These women have shown strength and courage in their journey to better health and a stronger core.
Ashley is amazing and is so knowledgeable about all things core. I have done 3 phases with her, healed my diastases recti, and stopped my stress incontinence. Highly recommend all 3 phases of the program.Rachael M.
I don’t even know where to begin. To say that I will be forever grateful to the difference that Ashley has made and is making in my life would be an understatement. I’ll never forget the first day I met her at my consultation. The first thing she did was ask me about my childbirth experience. She listened supportively and shared in my emotion. Then she pointed out that my body was reflecting my painful experience. I did not realize that I was sitting in a curled up ball. I didn’t realize that I couldn’t sit or stand straight if I wanted to…until I could. Quickly in phase one, after becoming more aware of my body, I realized that the imaginary string that was pulling my body down had been cut and I had the ability to stand and sit up tall. I am in phase 2 now, and in my last session I cried. I cried because when my birth experience was brought in to a conversation I focused on the beautiful, positive aspects of the event and the negative was all contained to one word. The doctor was a monster, stated very matter of fact with no emotion. The tears came when I realized the emotional healing that has taken place thus far that allowed me to see my son’s birth as it was…beautiful. And Ashley celebrated with me. For me Heal and Seal has been more than healing my body that was more broken than I even knew, it is healing my Heart and Soul too. I’ve said from day one that Ashley is truly a healer who is holistic in every sense of the word. Thank you Ashley. Again, I am blessed that God brought you into my life.Brenda P.
Phase I was awesome! Went from 3 to 2 finger separation and honestly, I haven’t been very diligent with HW! I can suck my stomach in further than I have been able to in years. And I can feel muscles throughout my abdomen now, something that 3+ years of crunches and planks hadn’t done. And the best part is that I can run longer distances without needing to urinate. I was so close to seeking a surgeon, and I’m so thankful I found Ashley first. Looking forward to Phase II in February!Lauren W.
I am already seeing incredible results even a couple sessions in, and it’s blowing my mind! I worried so much that I would be that one person who wouldn’t “get it” and I’d be doing it wrong or unable to connect my mind to my muscles. After the first session things began to click and Ashley was there every step of the way to reassure and get me out of my own head enough to progress. She explains and re-explains instructions in a thousand ways until it makes sense and clicks for you, and she makes herself available anytime you might struggle throughout the week or beyond the class. Her Priority One is that you heal and see results and she won’t leave you hanging until you reach your goals!Ashley S.
I have been through my share of health professionals–surgeons, physical therapists, gynecologists–none of them seemed interested in addressing my weak pelvic floor and core beyond stopping muscle spasms and telling me to lose weight. Ashley meets you where you are and figures out how to get you on the road to a stable core. I’m carrying around some extra weight, so don’t have a flat belly as a result of Heal & Seal, but I do have a lot more stability in my core.Mary M.
I spent THOUSANDS of dollars seeing a physical therapist for pelvic floor dysfunction and core instability for several months. I had made more progress with Ashley in two or three sessions that we ever made in PT. This program is worth the investment. YOU are worth the investment.
Ashley is amazing! After going through her program, I feel that I am much stronger and she helped tremendously with some icky things that happen to a woman’s body after child birth! If you are having any kinds of problems with back pain or other issues (hemorrhoids, hernias, etc.) – go see her!Valerie B.
Ashley is the real deal. Her techniques work and are based on the science of the way the body works and how each and muscle works together. She explains things in detail so you understand why you are doing what you are doing. The results have been life changing!Lisa F.
I cannot express how thankful I am for Ashley Kates and Heal & Seal! I have had 3 beauty babies back to back. They are now 13, 12, and 9. Before phase 1, I had 4+ degrees of separation below my belly button and 2 degrees where my ribs meet. At the end of phase 1 I had 3 degrees and 1 degree. I am now in phase 2 and I am so excited for my results. So far, I have lost 2 inches around my waist. I am currently not doing any other form of exercise. My belly button has even raised up and my posture has improved so much!! I cannot recommend Heal & Seal enough!!Amie B.
Heal and Seal is literally the only one of its kind out there! Most doctors recommend surgery or tell you there is no way to heal your uterine prolapse. As much as you diet and workout, you still have a ‘mommy tummy’. Well, Ashley has made such a difference in so many of our lives with Heal and Seal! No only has she found a program that WORKS, but she also helps you through other things with her strong fitness and nutrition background. Her knowledge of the body is unbelievable. I’m not sure what kind of shape my body and mind would be in, if it weren’t for Ashley’s help. Her classes and advice have been such a God send for me.Meredith H.
Ashley is so incredibly talented, driven, and compassionate. She has done countless hours of research and understands the body (and specifically diastasis recti and the core) better than anyone I’ve experienced. Her sessions are honestly a steal for what she offers and the results are priceless. Thankful to have someone like that nearby.Christen S.
I started Heal & Seal a little skeptical that it would do much for me because I didn’t have much diastisis separation and didn’t have pelvic floor issues like peeing when I sneezed. Imagine my amazement when my abdominal muscles were stronger and belly skin tighter after phase I! After phase II my spinal alignment was improved. Now into phase III I can squat without joint pain and am building muscle. If you have had a baby, give Ashley a call for a consultation! It is worth every penny!Angela B.
This class is amazing! I had no idea what to expect or even if it would work. After going through a couple of phases I can tell HUGE differences in my greatly damaged ab wall. It has totally changed the way I think about exercise and I am beyond thankful to have taken this! Huge plus….I no longer pee a bit when I sneeze thanks to my pelvic floor strengthening. So thankful to Ashley’s caring passionate heart to help this struggling momma of three!Jessica L.
After spending hundreds of dollars on DVDs and wraps to help heal my Diastasis Recti, and wasting my money, I am so glad I found Ashley! I saw results so quickly. Not to mention her techniques were different from all the boring stuff on the internet. She understands the muscular system in a way those others don’t seem to. After years of Diastasis I can finally fit back into shirts pre-pregnancy, and my loose skin has also started tightening…something totally unexpected!Liz K.
