Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide To The Sex Life You Deserve by Heather Jeffcoat, DPT

Haga clic aquí para la versión española

Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide To The Sex Life You Deserve was written by Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, a physical therapist with countless successes in treating this type of pain. Women with vaginismus, overactive pelvic floor, painful intercourse, vulvodynia, vulvar vestibulitis, vestibulodynia, dyspareunia, interstitial cystitis have all benefited from her unique program. Heather uses her orthopaedic background to approach treatment of these muscles like they are....muscles! She utilizes a self-treatment tool called a dilator to take you through the steps of specific massage techniques and other muscle relaxation and stretching exercises in a gentle fashion to return a women's muscles back to a resting, rather than their guarded and overactive state.

What Others are Saying About "Sex Without Pain":

"I have seen Heather's treatment program work time and time again with my patients. Her unique approach to treating women with painful intercourse through a combination of hands on skills, patient education and the thorough home program outlined in this book has surpassed the results of her peers. Her techniques and expertise have been an invaluable resource to my practice."

"I will use it frequently for clients who cannot afford pelvic floor PT or for those who cannot find pelvic floor PT any where near them! I have so needed this resource. The clarity of each step and the drawings are so helpful - I don't know of any other resource that will be as effective for self-help."

-  Joyce Penner, RN, MN (Sexual Therapist, Educator and Co-author of The Gift of Sex, Restoring the Pleasure and numerous other publications)


"Sex Without Pain is an essential book for any woman suffering with pelvic or sexual pain. Heather's approach is simple and clear. She empowers the woman and her partner with the resources needed to lead a healthy and pain free sex life.  A great read for patients and professionals alike."

Heather speaks about "Sex Without Pain":

 

APPENDIX IV:  TRUSTED PROFESSIONAL RESOURCE GUIDE

Although this book offers a comprehensive self-treatment program, I firmly believe the best way to treat pain with intercourse is to involve a team of competent, supportive professional experts. In addition, an initial evaluation by a physician (to rule out medical sources of pain), and a consultation with a physical therapist are highly recommended (and may be necessary) before beginning this, or any other, self-treatment or exercise program.

I strongly encourage you to obtain the services of a qualified physician and women’s health physical therapist with a record of success in treating pain during intercourse to support you on your healing journey. I also urge you to seek help from a licensed professional counselor or sex therapist if you experience emotional issues related to sexuality or intimacy at any point during this program. 

Ideally, you will be able to locate these services in your neighborhood; but since that may not be the case, I’m opening my own contact list of trusted professionals to you. These physicians, therapists, and counselors are available to consult with and treat patients worldwide. Some are available via telephone and Skype sessions and all of them offer consultation and treatment through in-person office visits. Each one is well versed in pelvic pain issues and has a track record of success in treating women with pain during intercourse and/or the accompanying emotional and intimacy issues that may develop as a result. If you cannot locate a qualified professional in your area, and don’t feel supported by your current caregivers, don’t hesitate to contact them; and check my website for updates to this list.
