Journey to Specialization

After living in the USA with her family for five years, Katrin returned to Germany in 2016. She quickly realized a significant gap in pre- and post-natal care for women. Driven by a desire to fill this void, she specialized in women's health and discovered the Tupler Technique®, a program developed by Julie Tupler, RN, designed specifically to address diastasis recti—a common but often neglected condition that involves the separation of the abdominal muscles.

What is the Tupler Technique®?

The Tupler Technique® is a comprehensive program that targets the rehabilitation of the abdominal muscles. It focuses on the "four steps to a better belly," which includes exercises specifically designed to strengthen the transverse abdominis, the use of a diastasis rehab splint to position the connective tissue and muscles in a forward position, education on the mechanics of the abdomen, and awareness of the proper movements to prevent worsening of the condition.

Katrin's adoption of the Tupler Technique® has marked a significant milestone in her career. She became the first Tupler Technique® Trained Professional in Germany, bringing new hope to many who suffered in silence.

She believes that healing diastasis recti is not just about physical improvement but also about enhancing overall quality of life.
