This package is for anyone who wants to speed up the healing of their Diastasis. The purpose of the cream is twofold: To nourish the weakened connective tissue and to prepare the skin on your belly for 'taping' with the TogetherTape™ in Week 4 of the program.
There is now scientific evidence to support that 'nutritional' therapy is a key factor in connective tissue repair.
This cream has been specially formulated with very specific nutrients to nourish and heal your connective tissue. Getting these specific nutrients from food is also important in healing connective tissue. This cream is made in the US. It is natural with no parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, mineral oil or SLS.
After bathing, thoroughly dry your skin and apply the cream to the connective tissue joining your outermost abdominal muscles from the bottom of your sternum to your pubic bone. Do not put in your belly button. While doing the Tupler Technique® Program it is important to keep your belly button clean and dry. Allow the cream to absorb before putting your splint back on.
The skin on your belly is very sensitive so it is recommended to prepare your skin the first four weeks of the Tupler Technique® Program with this cream before starting the Together Tape™.
This cream can also be used on your face and body as a lotion to nourish your skin and after shaving to soothe your skin.
The purpose of the TogetherTape™ is provide a communication between the skin and connective tissue to come together. The tape works in conjunction with the Diastasis Rehab Splint® to speed up the process for closing your diastasis recti. If for some reason you cannot wear the Diastasis Rehab Splint®, you can wear the tape by itself. Working in a similar fashion to a Butterfly Band-Aid, the tape works to bring together the muscles and connective tissue closer together.
When the tape is stretched before it is applied on the skin, the tape wants to recoil back to its original 'unstretched' position. This continuous recoiling process on the skin sends a message from the skin to the connective tissue and muscles to move in the same direction as the tape is moving. The skin on your belly is very sensitive. It is therefore recommended not starting to use the tape until Week 4 of the Tupler Technique® Program. During this time, you should prepare your skin with our nourishing Corrective Connective Tissue Cream.
Due to this sensitivity, we start out slow with the amount of tape used on the skin. During the first week you only use one piece above and one piece below your belly button. If you have an allergic reaction stop using the tape and wait a week. Use the Corrective Connective Tissue Cream during this time. Usually after a week your skin will be desensitized and you can start again. If all goes well after the first week, you can put two pieces above and two pieces below your belly button. With no skin reactions, progressing in week 3 to three pieces above and three pieces below your belly button. Continue with three pieces above and three pieces below for as long as you continue to use the TogetherTape™.One application should last you anywhere from 4-6 days. Between applications, allow the skin for rest for one day before applying the tape again. This is a great time to use the Corrective Connective Tissue Cream. The tape is water resistant but not water proof so keep it as dry as you can when showering.
