As I'm sure you already know, when it comes to menopause there's no 'one size fits all' solution. It's really a matter of trial and error but you may not realise just how important it is to navigate your menopause journey using natural means. How exciting is that?! Just imagine making some changes to your diet, learning how to navigate relationships, strengthening career relationships, developing a stronger faith - all while taking back your good health as you become your own health manager.  Better Menopause Better Life can help you to do just that, as well as share a wonderful exercise that has helped many menopausal women achieve better bladder control. Let's face it, menopause is tough enough to get through, without that added burden. No-body wants to hold their breath and cross their legs when sneezing!

So, What's In The Course?


Fed up with the meno belly?! Learn how to explore and trial various alternative and nutritional food types, to balance your weight naturally. Processed sugar is renowned for increasing those hot flushes/flashes.

Dry Swan Detective Diary

Pinpoint those troublesome items in your diet that could be a major factor in any oops moments and bladder control issues. It’s also good to steer you in the direction of better food choices.


Being over-committed in your life is a real problem during menopause and it’s high time for you to take a good look at your level of commitment across the board. Getting the balance right is a must for a healthy life and a 'doable' menopause journey.

Key Relationships

Improving relationships that are suffering during menopause, is easier than you think. It’s all a matter of communicating your needs clearly and gathering a support team. You’re not the only one who’s affected by those menopausal moments!


This is a key element to managing a successful menopause journey – as the Bible says Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Learn how to grow your faith to receive healing in your body, your relationships and every aspect of your life.

About Tess Hansel

"The Key To A Successful Menopause Journey Is To Become Your Own Health Manager."

Tess Hansel, is a Menopause Guidance Coach and founder of Dry Swan Bladder Control. Tess learnt the hard way how not to do menopause and now spends her time helping other women to navigate their menopause journey. Tess has completely recovered from incontinence suffered as a result of hemiplegic migraines. She did this through developing a holistic approach to the problem following years of investigation into diet, exercise, stress levels, emotions, general and spiritual wellbeing. The Dry Swan distraction exercise, which initially was used as a means to gain those few precious minutes to get to the toilet, has proven to correct the urge and stress incontinence, resulting in complete recovery.   

“I was too embarrassed to talk about urinary incontinence with my family” says Tess “and spent my time researching the condition and trying out different techniques. The first time my family found out about it was when I sat them down and told them what I had been going through since the migraine events. I then showed them the Dry Swan exercise, which has given me back my quality of life. I had become a bit of a hermit, which is typical behaviour for those suffering from incontinence. You never know when it will strike so it was easier avoiding places and over time I pretty much stopped going out altogether. Now, I’m back digging in the garden, out and about, off to the mall/supermarket – really, just living again. I would love to see other women become their own health managers, achieve better bladder control  and a much better quality of life.”

Tess has discovered that managing menopause requires a multi-faceted approach and a need to really communicate how others can help during our menopause journey. This includes family, friends, work colleagues (yes, even the boss) and all those in our lives. Instead of menopause being a burden on us and others, it can actually become a time of amazing personal and spiritual growth.
