Heather Jeffcoat, DPT

Heather (she/her/hers) 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 the Mid-Wilshire district 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.

    • Testimonial by S.P., Age 26

      I would like to start off by thanking Heather Jeffcoat for educating me and curing me of Vaginismus. I had been married for almost three years before I was referred to Heather. I never knew about Vaginismus until almost three years into my marriage. I knew something was wrong when I went on my honeymoon and came back a Virgin. I had always imagined how magical my first night would be but boy was I wrong.
