Core Queens

A transformative 6 Week Group Program with live sessions with Dr. Melissa so you never have to wonder if you are doing your exercises correctly and which are best for your body.

It’s time to ditch the kegels, the never ending doctors appointments and finally get personalized pelvic floor techniques that will actually change your life…FOR GOOD!

“I was able to carry my grandson and walk around an amusement park without pelvic pressure or heaviness for the first time in years. These exercises and tips have been more helpful than the 2 PT’s I’ve seen in the past.”

Can you remember when you could laugh without fear of pain or even worse peeing your pants?

When you could do jumping jacks, enjoy long walks, and play tag with your kids without sprinting for the bathroom or reaching for some meds.

You’d give anything for those days.

Because life right now looks like:  

😐 Worrying & crossing your legs with every sneeze.

😐 Buying panty liners in bulk from Costco.

😐 Not wanting to leave the house for fear of not knowing where the next restroom is going to be.

😐 Having to limit or avoid working out & exercising.

😐 Struggling to sit, stand, or do anything without your hip or lower back pain flaring up.

😐 Feeling a metric-ton of pressure in your pelvis whenever you lift anything at all.

And you’ve come to just dealing that this is how life is from now on. Because despite-

If you really think about it, you cannot remember the last time your bladder wasn’t bossing you around

or when you didn’t wake up with tightness & tension, and aches, pains, and leaks being all consuming.

😖 Having been to every healthcare provider and then some without any real results, relief, or feeling like anyone is listening to you…

😖 Buying all sorts of “miracle” medications, weighted balls, vibrating chairs or pants…

😖 Seeing a parade of general practitioners, physios, gynecologists, chiropractors, pre & postnatal specialists, fitness trainers, massage therapists, and everyone in between

Nothing changes or maybe even gets worse!

But those just didn’t work. 

All you hear is an endless circle of:

“Do kegels or crunches”

But you don’t want to resort to surgery.
Or maybe you did have surgery and it didn’t help. (in fact, you are pretty sure it made things worse.)

“Surgery is the answer”

But you’ve “already” cut out running, exercises, hiking, playing with your kids or grandkids. And no matter how much you try to advocate for yourself...

“Take it slow and stop doing the activities that are causing you pain and making you leak.”

It feels like no one’s listening. 

Not the last 3 doctors you visited. Or the specialists you maxed out your insurance to see. 

It’s no wonder you’re thinking…

💭 “Maybe it’s just me.”

💭 “It must just be normal to pee my pants (20 years after I gave birth).”

 💭“Aches & pains are just part of getting older.”

💭 “It’s too late to fix my pain.”

💭 “I guess this is just my life now…”

In case no one’s told you this:

Hold it right there, love 

You’re not crazy. You’re not hysterical. And your pain IS real.

The reality is: 70-80% of the population will experience some type of neck or back pain in their lives.

And one quarter of women suffer from leaking – even if they haven’t experienced childbirth.

So you’re not alone.

(And what if I told you you can do that from the comfort of your own home?)

Wondering how I can make such bold claims?

But here’s the truth: you DON’T have to just deal with it and it IS possible to live a pain-free, leak-free life.

But what if you found the root cause of your pain or leaking, so you can have a permanent fix instead of a temporary one?

The reason nothing has worked so far isn’t your fault.

It’s likely because all your ‘solutions’ have focused on easing your symptoms.

Hi, I’m Dr Melissa Oleson

(I’m also totally obsessed with chai lattes, hot chips, and colorful yoga pants!)

I believe women like you who are living with pains and leaks shouldn’t have to ‘just deal’ or kegel your way through life. And you definitely shouldn’t have to stop doing the things you love.

More importantly?

A doctor of physical therapy, an integrative Nutritional Health Coach, and a registered yoga teacher.

I believe everything in your body is connected. 

If one part isn’t working optimally, then like a domino effect, it triggers other parts of the body too.

When we step back and look at your entire body as a whole, you’ll find all pain traces back to…👇🏼

“But Melissa, I’ve already done fifty million crunches!” I hear you.


Your core & pelvic floor 

Your core is so much more than your abs.

Most healthcare providers focus on curing your symptoms—not identifying the cause.

You tell them hip pain, they’ll give you 10 generic exercises involving the hips.

(or worse, tell you to do even more kegels).

That’s why kegels don’t work!

And it’s why past solutions haven’t worked either!

Every time you perform kegels, you’re tensing your pelvic floor muscles.

And sometimes, that causes you to overly tense them when your pelvic floor actually needs to be lengthened and relaxed.

So if you’re already feeling tightness, pressure, or tension, kegels will be painful and unhelpful.

It includes your pelvic floor, diaphragm, back muscles, and glutes. ALL of these muscles have to work together as a system and function properly and maintain the intra-abdominal pressure in your abdomen.

And when something disrupts the system and creates more pressure—

It leads to achy back pain, prolapse, leaks, digestive issues, and more.

 But if you want to stop the leaks and pains for good, you have to optimize your core & pelvic floor system AND learn to manage the intra-abdominal pressure.

By learning how to:

🧘 Breathe for your pelvic floor. 

🧘 Align your posture. 

🧘 And perform specific exercises to get your core and pelvic system working

That’s where I come in. 

Instead of focusing in on one area of the body (and neglecting the rest), I take a full-body, holistic approach

This approach has helped 1000s of women overcome pain & leaks so they can take back control of their bodies.

I help you identify all the issues that might be causing your pain and leaking – from your diet, stress levels, bathroom habits, and even sleep habits.

Then using my background as a physical therapist and yoga instructor—

I teach you how to respond to it with gentle exercises that will open up your core and pelvic floor.

And now? You can be one of them. 

Say hello to:

A transformative 6 Week Group Program with LIVE sessions with Dr. Melissa so you never have to wonder if you are doing your exercises correctly and which are best for your body.

With weekly customized core and pelvic floor guidance this program will help you relieve your pain and stop you from peeing your pants WITHOUT kegels or crunches.

Core Queens

“ I was able to walk for the first time in 3 years without a cane. My hip pain has decreased & I have exercises that actually work.”

“Long car rides no longer terrify me. I am now able to drive without achy back pains! And I could get back out on the golf course without my plantar fasciitis flaring up, double win!”

“I used to wake up every morning with a stiff achy back and would have never dreamt of getting on a trampoline. After this program, I am now able to get up with much less pain & I was able to for the first time in 5 years jump on a trampoline with my son.”

“I am back to lifting and exercising, something I never thought I would be able to because of the pelvic pressure and peeing. I had had surgery for my prolapse, but things only got worse after. So thankful I tried this program.”

If you’ve ever wished you knew exactly what exercises are best for you, wondered if you are doing the exercises properly, and want your achy pains and embarrassing leaks to go away for good...Core Queens is for you!

This is NOT a program where I give you more kegels and crunches (because we both know they don’t work for you).

Or force you to do hours and hours of exercises (because I know you don’t have time for that)

Instead, we’ll take a root-cause approach.

I’ll teach you how to listen to your body and locate the pain or pressure so you can figure out which muscles are firing up…

Then, we work out WHY you are experiencing aches and pains so we can treat the cause—not the symptom.

From there, I’ll guide you through new habits and intentional exercises for pain relief so you can have a permanent fix to your aches, pains, and leaks!

You’ll have all the tools you need with our weekly LIVE sessions and customized action steps designed for you all while being able to do this in the comfort of your home.

“I slept soundly & woke up for the first time with less pain and tightness down my right side after doing the exercises Melissa taught me! I’ve struggled with chronic pain, pelvic floor issues, and sciatica for years and finally feeling like I can feel better.”

“My OBYGN wanted to put me on medicine for an overactive bladder. I did not want to take medication. Your exercises are such a better way for me.”

Here’s how we’ll bring an end to your aches, pains, and embarrassing leaks 👇

👉🏼 Personalized feedback on whether you are doing the exercises correctly and adjustments you need to make

Weekly 60 minute LIVE Group Sessions

👉🏼 Ask your specific questions you have about the exercises and new strategies

👉🏼 Weekly action steps specific for your body that easily fit into your week

👉🏼 Have Dr. Melissa and a group of like minded women supporting you along the way

Did you know the way you breathe AND your posture directly affects your core system? 

By learning to breathe for your pelvic floor and align your posture, you can better manage your intra-abdominal pressure and your pain.

  • How to tap into the power of your core and pelvic floor

In this module, we’ll explore how to recognize if your pelvic floor muscles are too weak, too tight, or just not activating properly.

✅ You’ve tried every exercise and medical prescription under the sun 

I’ve worked with hundreds of women who have exhausted every other option out there, and are now living a pain-free and leak-free life thanks to Core Queens methods. 
By using my unique blend of physical therapy and yoga, we’ll uncover the WHY behind your aches & pains, and address the root causes that most healthcare providers often neglect. 

✅ It’s been years since you’ve had kids and you think your body is too far gone. 

It is never too late to heal your body and get rid of pains & leaks even if it’s been 5, 10, or 20 years since you’ve given birth!
By teaching you how to breathe, optimize your core system, and open up your pelvic floor, I’ve been able to help dozens of mums and grandmothers see a dramatic difference in their pain levels. 

✅ You haven’t had kids yet or at all.

Pelvic dysfunction, muscle tightness, and leaks can affect all women ― even if they haven’t had children. So you are more than welcome here. 
Core Queens will not only help you relieve pain and leaks for good, but it’ll also empower you to take care of your pelvic floor health and set you up with healthy habits so you can prevent more pains and leaks in the future. 

✅ You haven’t officially been diagnosed with anything.

Are you experiencing pain anywhere in your body? Struggling with leaks and bladder control? Feel like your body is bossing you around and impacting your quality of life? Then that’s all the diagnosis you need. 
You don’t need a doctor to validate your discomfort (or let’s be honest ― dismiss your concerns). What you do need is someone who will guide you through the habits and exercises that’ll give you sweet relief. 

Core Queens can help you EVEN IF:

Wondering if this is too good to be true?

Let’s talk, woman to woman, for a minute. 

Chances are, you’ve got your eyebrows raised and you’re wondering if this’ll work or if it’s another disappointing gimmick. 
You are done with getting your hopes up just to be let down. 
And I get it. 
You’ve already been forced to spend money on therapists and “revolutionary” devices that didn’t help. 
You’ve wasted so much time and money trying to “fix” your body. 
And you’re wondering how the Pelvic Floor Playbook will help you when even a parade of healthcare providers wouldn’t.

Well... 👇🏼

Other healthcare providers and prescriptions 

Focus on fixing the symptoms ― not identifying the cause. 

Prescribe treatments that feel like a stab in the dark.

Overlook the importance of breathing and posture. 

Think kegels are the solution to pelvic floor dysfunction.

Prescribe generic exercises that aggravate your muscles (and cause more pain).

Give you a sheet of illustrated exercises that don’t help you.

Require you to spend hours exercising. 

Require you to travel to their office every week or month.

Blends physical therapy with yoga so you can heal through gentle movement that soothes your muscles.

Here’s How Core Queens is Different

Core Queens is different and more effective than anything else out there because it gets to the root of WHY you’re experiencing pain or leaks. 

In short? 

As a result ― many of the women who have worked with me have gone from living with severe pain and leaks to regaining control of their body and life!
But don’t just take my word for it…👇🏼

Here’s How Other Women Are Living Their Best Lives AFTER Completing Core Queens

“Today I got out of bed and didn't have the usual pain in my low back and leg.”

“This has been such a positive experience after months of sadness because of a tight pelvic floor.”

“Working through the pelvic floor program have changed my life. I never thought I'd be able to feel like this again.”

“I still can't believe I don't need to wear a "just in case mini pad"”

“You have helped me so much. I started having tailbone pain and I couldn't figure out till I found you.”

“I have gone to 2 physical therapist who specialize in pelvic floor issues and they have been helpful but I have learned so much more from you.”

Want to know the best difference between Core Queens and other healthcare providers you’ve seen?

Most healthcare providers will charge you exorbitant amounts or ask for recurring payments just to prescribe more band aid solutions. 

In fact, you’ve probably paid for more PT sessions and doctor visits than you can count, and none of it helped. 
But now? 
You can get lifetime access to The Pelvic Floor Playbook and start working towards a pain-free, leak-free life in your own home for a fraction of the price and for only ONE payment.
For many women, this was the last health-related investment they had to make because it works. 
So what do you say?

"I never thought I could feel this good until I met you."

One final note to you…

The woman who holds herself back from life because she’s scared of embarrassing leaks.

Who’s tired of bouncing around from one specialist to the next, being poked and prodded with needles.  

Who’s been failed by a healthcare system that doesn’t know enough about pelvic floor health. 
This doesn’t have to be your life. 
You deserve to wake up without an ache in your muscles, a tightness in your pelvis or a bladder that dictates your every move. 
You deserve to feel at home in your body. 
That’s why I created Core Queens.

I knew there was a better approach.

One that doesn't involve kegels, crunches, or surgery ― but actually gets you to listen to your body and heal it with gentle movements. 

And I wanted to make it the most accessible and affordable resource I could. 
Because you and I? We only get one body and one life.
And I know you’d rather spend it laughing, jumping, and embracing all the activities that bring you JOY…instead of letting your pain and bladder hold you back. 
Core Queens will help you get there with me right by your side.
But only once you take the first step and join. 

You with me?

Here are some questions other women asked before signing up for Core Queens

“I've tried doctors, physical therapists, and exercises in the past with no change. How do I know Core Queens will help me?”

Nearly all my clients have sought help from a variety of healthcare providers. Some of them have even had surgery, but none of those options have eased their pain or leaking.
And that’s because most healthcare providers either don’t make an effort to find out what’s really going on in your body. Or they prescribe one-size-fits-all solutions, like kegels, because they don’t fully understand pelvic floor health.
In Core Queens, you’ll be introduced to a new holistic approach that shows you how to:
  • Listen to your body’s signals to identify where the pain or pressure is located
  • Understand all the factors that impact your pelvic floor (and therefore trigger your pain)
  • Identify the root cause of your pain 
  • Perform gentle exercises and movements to heal it 

So many of my clients say this approach has changed their lives. So I know Core Queens will make a world of difference for you, too 👇

“I have gone to two pelvic floor therapists and found your playbook much more helpful.”

“I’m new to fitness or I’ve tried exercises in the past and experienced pain. Is Core Queens right for me?”

Absolutely! All the guided exercises inside Core Queens allow for modifications based on your pain levels.
I’ll also teach you how to listen to your body so you know where your pain is coming from, and how to avoid causing it to flare up. 

“How long until I start seeing results and experience less pain or leaking?”

Everyone is different, but many of the women who join Core Queens feel significantly less pain and see an improvement in leaking within just a few weeks.
(You can too, as long as you follow the guided exercises and instructions) 

“How much time do I need to dedicate to Core Queens?

We meet one time a week for 60 minutes in a live zoom call. The meetings are recorded in case you miss a session and can watch when is best for you.
Plus, you only need to spend up to 10-15 minutes a day doing these exercises to see positive results!
I recommend you implement the guided exercises into your daily routine, because the more consistent you are, the faster you will see results. 

“How long do I have access to the content?”

You have lifetime access to the program, private-member community, and any future updates and additions to the course content.

How much support will I get from you?”

You get personalized feedback 60 minutes each week for 6 weeks with me guiding you through the program.
Then, you’ll get the chance to ask me all your questions inside the private-member community. That way, we can tailor what you’re learning to your body and your particular needs.

“What is the difference between Core Queens and Pelvic Floor Playbook?

Core Queens is for those that want personalized feedback and have a LIVE component to get their specific questions answered and my eyes on them to see if they are doing things correctly. 

The Playbook is for those that like to go at their own pace and don’t want the extra time LIVE. 

"Will I need equipment for the exercises?”

You don’t need any equipment. But where I do use a piece of equipment (e.g. a yoga block or tennis ball), I’ll always give you alternatives that you can find around your house – like a rolled up towel, socks, or a pillow.

“Do I need to start this program right away?”

Yes, we meet once a week for 6 weeks.

“Is this program live?”

Yes, we meet once a week for 60 minutes for 6 weeks.

Plus you have pre-recorded to supplement our weekly meetings.
(The private-member community is always open and available to you so you can ask for help and feedback whenever you want.)

“Do you guarantee results?”

I can’t guarantee results and no teacher or therapist should.

However, many of my past clients and students who have adopted my approach have been able to:
  • Go back to the gym and their favorite Pilates class 
  • Ditch going to endless urologists, PTs and doctors 
  • Move in a way they never thought was possible in their late 40s and 50s
  • Sit, stand, and jump without bending over in pain or peeing their pants 

And above all?

Live a healthy pain-free and leak-free life! 

“I need to ask my partner before I spend my money on Core Queens”

I totally understand wanting to check in with someone before you make an investment. In fact, I encourage that!
But make sure you’re not: 
(1) Asking for permission – because we both know you deserve to be pain-free and leak-free. No permission needed.
(2) Asking for advice from someone who just doesn’t understand the full extent of what you’re going through. 
You don’t have to ‘just deal’. This isn’t ‘just life’. And if investing in your health will allow you to get back to the life and activities you love… you should go for it.

“What if I have more questions?”

No worries! Just email me at and I’ll be sure to answer all your questions to see if Core Queens is the right fit for you.
