At MoonRise we believe everyone is capable of healing. Perhaps it isn’t something most of us have been brought up to believe. However, science shows that each and every single cell in the body is striving for homeostasis – optimal health*. Therefore, if we give the body what it needs, it will reach that optimal state.

Our programs approaches the symptoms a woman is experiencing holistically with a 3-pronged approach:

  1. Body-based Practices
  2. Mind-based practices
  3. Lifestyle Management

We give you support through our coaches and community. We provide everything you need to be able to heal.

Yet, you are the one who is responsible for your journey. In terms of patience and consistency, you are ultimately the one who takes action. In terms of believing you are healing, you are the only one who can really know if this is true for you.

You are the one who has to do the work, no one else can do it for you. But we are with you every step of the way.

*Goldstein, D. S. (2019). How does homeostasis happen? Integrative physiological, systems biological, and evolutionary perspectives. American Journal of Physiology-Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology, 316(4), R301–R317. https://doi.org/10.1152/ajpregu.00396.2018

This is as you can imagine, very individual. Some women notice a change after 3-6 months. Some after 3-6 weeks. We know you are eager to reach better health, yet we see the best results in women not expecting to see results, but who keep doing the work no matter what.

“Things get worse before they get better”

We are transparent in our approach. That’s why it’s important you know that sometimes you might see a dip in improvement a few weeks into your journey with us. What’s happening is known as a “healing crisis”.

It’s temporary, and just your body’s natural response to detoxification1. Sometimes, it happens because of changes in your everyday routine, differences in expectations vs. reality, or even because of navigating a new coaching relationship!2, 3

While we’ll do whatever we can to keep you comfortable, if you experience a healing crisis, you might notice pain, fatigue, and in some cases, flu-like symptoms. Don’t worry though, as symptoms will lighten up once they climax, and disappear after the 7th or 8th week of your program.4

Healing crisis in reflexology: Becoming worse before becoming better, Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice, Volume 16, Issue 4, 2010, Pages 239-243, ISSN 1744-3881, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ctcp.2010.01.005.

Yes! The NKS is built on 3 foundational pillars that work for all age groups. Our latest cohort’s average age was 63 and the median age was even higher. In short, women of all ages see results with the NKS.

The NKS can help with the following pelvic floor dysfunctions:

  • Cystocele
  • Enterocele
  • Rectocele
  • Uterine Prolapse
  • Vaginal Vault
  • Prolapse
  • Stress Incontinence
  • Urge Incontinence
  • Overflow Incontinence
  • Functional Incontinence
  • Mixed Incontinence
  • Diastasis-Recti
  • Pelvic Pain/Painful Sex/Lower Back Pain
  • Heaviness/Bulging/Chafing
  • Vaginal Gas/Wideness/Dryness/Abnormal Discharge
  • Fibroids/Cysts/Hemorrhoids
  • Diastasis Recti
  • Pudendal Neuralgia
  • Levator Ani

Yes! A hypertonic pelvic floor is an overactive, highly tensed pelvic floor. Doing more Kegels here would be detrimental since it creates more tension. While relaxation is the way to go, you would need to aim for a reflexive pelvic floor i.e. a pelvic floor that is strong, fluid & flexible. In other words, it supports your everyday life’s needs. The NKS helps you get there by decompressing the pelvic tension and helping you relax both within the pelvic area and the rest of your body by activating the parasympathetic nervous system.

Yes! A weak pelvic floor not only requires strengthening but fluidity & flexibility. Kegels is not the answer as it only activates a very small part of the pelvic floor, leaving many pelvic muscles ignored and waek. No wonder many women experience both hypertonic & hypotonic pelvic floors because from doing too many Kegels. The NKS is the only 100% natural alternative that activates not only your entire pelvic floor, but all the connected parts of your body to help you sustainably reverse symptoms.

You can think of the 12-week NKS as the beginning of your healing journey. It’s like the “kick-start” needed to guide you in the right direction.

With that said, results are still possible during these 12 weeks, but if you don’t experience a complete reversal of symptoms, it doesn’t mean the methods aren’t working. It just indicates that your body is still adapting and adjusting to the exercises & methods, and likely needs a bit more time (and patience) before feeling significantly better.

However, we can say that the majority of our students get results and improvements within the 12 weeks. And even better, they now have the tools and confidence to continue on their healing journey.

All the videos in the NKS come with a detailed list of contraindications. So, you’ll learn if there are any exercises or methods you should avoid.

If ever in doubt, please consult your primary care doctor for clarification.

We partnered with 60+ women’s health practitioners who are experts in their fields to offer methods for a diverse range of symptoms and conditions. These experts midwives, doulas, physiotherapists, naturopathic doctors, pelvic health specialists, and more.

But, what makes them truly special?

They’ve all been where you’ve been! They had the disorder or condition they teach about. And they tried and/or created all the methods, exercises, and techniques they recommend. And they work with people all around the world helping them to become symptom-free.

Your purchase of the No Kegels System includes:

  • 12 week access to a video library that includes exercises customized for you – suitable for all ages, and the majority of condition. The pre-recorded videos are 4K/HD quality, and you can watch them on any device, from the comfort of your home.
  • Communication with a health guide via online chat who answers all your questions within 24 hours (excluding weekends), checks in with you every week over these 12 weeks, and is dedicated to your progress and healing.
  • A symptom tracking tool that you update each week, which helps you see your progress over the 12 week NKS.
  • A thriving, positive community of women, practitioners, & health care experts who support and cheer you on.

You have unlimited access to the video library for 12 straight weeks

After these 12 weeks, you can keep your access to the video library for 3 more months at a price of $41.97, paid quarterly. Or for 12 more months for a price of $119.88, paid annually.

It’s up to you. We support you on the remainder of your healing journey either way!

The No Kegels System is a 12-week commitment. You can pay in 2 ways:

  • 1-time payment of 349.99 USD for the 12-weeks or a no cost monthly plan of 116.99 USD, payable over 3 consecutive months.
  • 30-day money back guarantee, no questions asked.
    However, if you don’t see improvements after 90-days, we’d be happy to refund your money in this case as well.
  • We also have a scholarship program if you need financial assistance.
  • You can email [email protected] to provide information regarding your need for financial assistance. We read and consider every email because we don’t want money to come in the way of good health.

Women who don’t get help or complete answers from their doctors almost have no other choice but to spend hours Googling their conditions and symptoms. During this time, they’re likely feeling lonely, scared, and a bit hopeless.

And doing this while raising kids, running a business, taking care of their loved ones and spouses — and trying to keep it all together. It’s not easy or fair.

This is a big reason why Filippa Odevall and Mahesh Kumar (wife and husband team) started Women Cycles. To learn more, read the full blog here.

No worries. We offer a 30-day money back guarantee, if you change your mind. But, in the rare case you see almost no improvements after 90-days, we will happily refund your money as well. We do not want money to come in the way of good health.

Please write to [email protected] regarding your financial situation, the budget you have available & your motivation or “why” for wanting to join us. While we cannot guarantee we accept all applications, we promise to reply to every one of them.

You’ll get an email with a link to a short questionnaire form asking about the symptoms and condition you’re facing. Once you complete this form, you’ll get your personalised program within 2 business days.

If you sign up today, you will be able to get started in the next 2 business days. Our NKS students typically begin on the Sunday or Monday after they sign up. Why? This usually gives them enough time to clear their calendars and get ready for the 12-week commitment.

We offer a no-questions-asked, 30-day money-back guarantee. You can write to anytime to request a refund.

If your doctor or physio has a modern outlook and understands that pelvic issues have been overlooked & Kegels are not the most effective choice, then yes!

But, if they think surgery is your only choice, then the answer would be no. We believe using non-invasive methods customised to your needs work great. However, if such natural solutions don’t work for you after consistent effort, then you can always consider medical procedures at that point.

And remember you have a 30-day money-back guarantee. So, if you are not satisfied by the end of 30 days, we’ll refund your money the whole amount.
