Home Pelvic Floor Therapy Program for Painful Sex
Have you ever...
Had painful sex and didn’t know what to do about it? Perhaps you were told that was normal or to drink a glass of wine.
Been diagnosed with Vaginismus and are unable or too nervous to seek pelvic floor therapy for it? Perhaps you googled "how to treat vaginismus at home" because of this.
Felt sharp or burning pain during sex, and your previous attempts at fixing it didn’t work? Perhaps you were prescribed dilators and you absolutely hated them, they didn't help.
This program was developed for individuals like yourself who are struggling with painful intimacy (vaginismus, vulvodynia, dyspareunia etc) and are looking for an at-home, accessible solution. Whether you tried therapy before, or you don’t have access to it, this program will walk you through comprehensive steps and exercises to help you reach your pain-free sex goals.

All videos have subtitles, so if audio is unavailable to you, you can still follow along!
We created this program to be accessible, and while others out there might charge you an arm and a leg, or a continuous subscription fee, we won't. One purchase to have access to the program for life.
As the program gets updated over the years, you'll automatically have access to those new additions as well.
Currently there are 27 lessons to work through, and 1.5 hours of video content to watch and rewatch as desired.
