Pelvic-Heart Integration® is a Western way to overcome the split between sexuality and love, the masculine and the feminine, the genitals and the heart, within the person and through trans-generational work.

The Method was developed by Jack Painter, Ph.D. and furthered by Dirk Marivoet, MSc. and Mag. Elisabeth Renner who founded The International Institute of Pelvic-Heart Integration.

Throughout our lives we separate our sexuality from the feelings of our heart over and over again. While we run away from our deep feelings of our broken hearts, we are investing a lot of energy in our sexual recognition. The way we separate love and sex from each other, is reflected in our body. The connection between the heart and pelvis allows us to see our natural rhythm of pleasure and excitement, thus connecting our male and female side in us. The simultaneous work with breathing, touch, movement, feelings and thoughts brings the energy between the heart and pelvis to flow and opens us to love ourselves and others.




  • How to use the breath to access new levels of excitement with or without a partner
  • How to identify characteristic patterns and blocks to the free flow of orgasmic energy and how these blocks are related   to body types and personality types
  • How to identify the origin of these sexual blocks and how to release them on physical, energetic, and emotional levels
  • How to free yourself from old, dysfunctional patterns and become a mature, self-validating individual
  • How to use pelvic-heart bodywork to release trauma and to increase orgasmic pleasure
