Cristina Nobile, pelvic physiotherapist, is one of the founders of Clínica Mulhere’S+. Cristina tells us that her work in the area of ​​pelvic physiotherapy, exclusively in the treatment of pain during sexual intercourse, made her realize how much the stories of other women reverberated with her own stories. a greater life purpose. We are a mix of all women and their stories. Its contribution also takes place through mentoring/guidance for women who want to gain security and understanding to experience their own sexuality with freedom and pleasure. “For us, in addition to treating pain, we wanted to deliver differentiated care, focusing on listening and welcoming, with personalized treatment as a differentiator, meeting this patient’s greatest pain, who was often in need of guidance and support. self-knowledge”, he says.




1. How did your career start? My career in physiotherapy began at the age of 36, after a broken marriage, two children and a mother with breast cancer. I decided to go back to studying after separating, and with my mother's illness I couldn't envision anything other than training in physiotherapy with a postgraduate degree in Oncology. Everything went well, including the post. I completed my residency at the Pérola Byington Hospital outpatient clinic, which enabled me to care for women undergoing cancer treatment. As the highest rate of outpatient care was women with breast and urogynecological cancer, I started in the area of ​​pain at that time. What I didn't know was that after a few years I would have the opportunity to work in pelvic physiotherapy with a focus on pain during sexual intercourse. One area complemented the other, my field of activity expanded a lot, and I ended up addressing pain in the relationship with oncology patients as well.


2. How is the Clínica Mulheres Mais business model formatted? The first contact with the patient can happen through a free online chat. This modality was born when we realized how difficult it was for this patient to reach us and have the courage to carry out the assessment. In this contact I can answer any questions and provide guidance on how the treatment works, but I make it very clear that the chat does not replace the assessment. In the assessment, in addition to the anamnesis, where this woman will report all the complaints and difficulties, I carry out the physical examination, and it is through this that I can map the level and degree of severity of the dysfunction. From this first diagnosis, indicate the number of sessions, which normally start at a minimum of 10. For us, in addition to treating pain, we wanted to deliver a differentiated service, focusing on listening and welcoming, with personalized treatment as a differentiator, meeting this patient's greatest pain, who was often in need of guidance and self. knowledge. We realized that it was a simple and innovative treatment. Innovative in the sense of treating the physical part with emotional repercussions. The treatment is aimed at all women, at any age, from the beginning of their sexual life to post-menopause, who feel pain or are unable to allow vaginal penetration, whether during a gynecological examination, taking medication or during sexual intercourse. . Mentoring/consulting is recommended for women who want to gain knowledge and have autonomy over their bodies and understand what they like and don't like. We start from the premise that providing information is our obligation and part of our purpose. Our work is disseminated through social networks, magazines and blogs. Always aimed at a female audience.


3. What was the most difficult moment in your career? While I worked exclusively in oncology, my path was arduous. It was difficult to gain authority and recognition in the field. Physiotherapy in oncology was taking its first steps. For a long time, health professionals who were not “doctors” had to constantly prove authority and knowledge and the benefits that multidisciplinary action and practice promoted in the rehabilitation of patients. This is now part of the past, more than ever healthcare professionals and especially physiotherapists have gained recognition.


4. How do you manage to balance your personal life vs. entrepreneurial life? Today I have adult children, I have flexibility and a much lower level of demand in relation to them. Undertaking is challenging, there are hours and hours of total exclusivity, there is no day or time, but it is extremely rewarding to see things happen. The most difficult thing for me was and still is managing my time, in my case I have a lawyer partner, meeting deadlines has always been a reality for her, she has it easier, she leads and helps me with management.


5. What is your biggest dream? I dream of stability both on a personal and professional level. Today my biggest dream is in the professional sphere, I dream of being able to be a difference and transform the lives of the women who pass by me, leaving my mark on the world in this way. Impact, cause transformation and reach the largest number of women, providing information and guidance on sexuality and women's health.


6. What is your greatest achievement? I have achieved a lot during my life, I have conquered my family, my children, my profession, but I think my achievement is daily! I conquer my patients every day. Acting on sexuality requires a lot of care and delicacy. To gain this patient's trust I need to be truthful, know how to listen to her, not judge, have empathy. And we don't learn that in college, that's what life teaches! And I never tire of learning that.


7. Book, film and woman you admire Book and film: “Eat, Pray, Love”. Series: “This is Us”. Woman: Doctor Albertina Duarte Takiuti. I am inspired by the way she approaches and transforms the lives of so many women, by her passion for medicine and health, by her dedication to her profession.
