Meet the staff of Femina Physical Therapy

Heather Jeffcoat, DPT

Heather is the author of Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide To The Sex Life You Deserve and a recognized expert in the field of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy. After receiving many emails from people around world, she noticed there was a gap in access to quality pelvic floor physical therapy providers, and women deserved answers and a treatment plan for the painful sex they were experiencing. She developed her book as a way to get her proven techniques to all who needed it. Heather is proud to have opened the first pelvic health physical therapy program in the Pasadena / Glendale area, and has continued to serve the area since 2004. Since then, her staff and services have expanded to Beverly Hills and Sherman Oaks, where her mission continues to place quality of care in order to optimize her patients' goals.

She has been a featured guest on Sirius XM, Sex With Emily, Loveline with Mike and Dr. Drew, Cosmopolitan, Livestrong, Mom.me, ABC Radio, Health Magazine, L.A. Parent Magazine, and many other media outlets. She has contributed to the ICA Update and the International Childbirth Education Association Journal, where she hosted the long-running quarterly column entitled "Perinatal Wellness". She has presented her techniques twice at the American Urogynecologic Association's Annual Meeting, most recently in 2018 in video format during their general scientific session. She has also been a guest blogger multiple times for the Womens Health Foundation. She has also developed a course to further her mission of improving women's sexual health and it made it's debut in Istanbul, Turkey in Spring of 2019. In Summer 2019, she worked with the Chinese Olympic Committee's summer and winter athletes in Beijing. She maintains her passion for treating sports and orthopaedic injuries, and brings a whole-body approach to her work with women's sexual dysfunction and pain disorders. She understands that many of her patients rarely have isolated pelvic issues - and the majority also come with hip, back, neck or other orthopedic dysfunction that could be driving their pain further away from a solution unless the bigger picture is addressed.

In a way, I felt like I ran better than ever because my core feels so rock solid from all the exercises you have me doing.

      I started seeing Heather to treat my Interstitial Cystitis in November 2016. At this time, I was extremely miserable, in constant pain, and felt as though no one was listening or understood what was going on with my body. I have just finished my last appointment and I can honestly say that my life has completely changed for the better because of Heather and her team of PTs!
