Treating the Whole Person: An Interview with Holly McDonald

Holly had a winding road to becoming a pelvic physical therapist. But once she found her Pelvic PT Ethos, she knew the type of patients she wanted to help.

5 Reminders When Treating Chronic Pain

Pelvic PT Rising: The pelvic health tools to make you a better clinician and/or a more successful business owner. We want every single pelvic health practitioner to be more confident and successful in your practice and career!

  • Clinical Courses: Game-changing online courses to make you more confident, challenge your thinking and improve patient outcomes

  • Business Resources: Helping 500+ pelvic health practitioners confidently start, grow and build their dream business!


In creating Relief Physical Therapy, Holly was able to focus on providing the setting and care her chronic pelvic pain patients deserve.

She discusses her clinical approach of treating the whole person and how she integrated her massage background with physical therapy training to create her Ethos.

With her patients she works to "unravel the knot." Prioritization is so important, and getting results and buy-in immediately is crucial before going deeper to get to the root of their issues.

Holly couldn't find a setting where she could practice the way she wanted, so she created her own! Hear all about her journey through starting her business to practicing the way she believes her patients need.
