After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from UC Santa Cruz, Stephany earned her Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Mount St. Mary’s University then expanded further with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Western University. For the first twelve years of her career, she treated a multitude of orthopedic and neurological diagnoses with a focus on treating people suffering from persistent pain. Stephany has treated people with a wide variety of complicated persistent pain diagnoses such as: Fibromyalgia, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), chronic migraines, persistent low back pain and persistent pelvic pain.

Those with persistent pelvic pain ignited a curiosity and the desire to further explore pelvic health. She strives to improve her skills by regularly attending continuing education classes and has received the Certification of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy Program (CAPP-Pelvic) through the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). She has now treated a variety of pelvic related diagnoses in both women and men such as:

  • Urinary and fecal incontinence
  • Urinary frequency
  • Pregnancy related symptoms
  • Post-natal symptoms
  • Diastasis Rectus Abdominus (DRA)
  • Constipation
  • Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)
  • Vaginismus
  • Testicular pain

Stephany finds satisfaction providing care for those who feel they have exhausted all options to treat their condition. She aims to help people find confidence in their own bodies and take control of their symptoms. She uses a variety of interventions to help people get back to a more fulfilling quality of life and back to activities they enjoy.

Some interventions she uses:

  • Exercise and functional movement strategies
  • Manual techniques like strain/counterstrain and trigger point release, joint mobilizations
  • Education on body mechanics, anatomy and physiology, neurophysiology of pain
  • Guidance on behavioral changes to mitigate aggravating factors
  • Mindfulness/relaxation techniques to calm the nervous system and anxiety.

When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her two sons and husband, exercising in a variety of different ways and traveling anywhere she’s never been before. She also enjoys volunteering her time at Elizabeth House in Pasadena to educate pregnant women who are housing insecure about the implications of pregnancy and delivery on the pelvic floor. ¡También hablo español!

What Our Patients Have to Say

Testimonial by S.B.

As someone who suffered the debilitating physical and emotional effects of vaginismus (as well as a complicated history of back injuries) for more than 15 years, I thought a "normal" life was just a fantasy. Then I found Heather.

Testimonial by A.B.

Before I was referred to Heather Jeffcoat I was living in a nightmare. I had been married to my husband for three years and I was suffering from Vaginismus. That all changed when I visited my OBGYN and she said she knew of someone with a great success rate. To be honest I was hesitant at first because my first doctor had already told me that all I needed to do was order dilators from the internet and I should overcome my problem. She was wrong because I had followed the book on how to use the dilators with absolutely no advancements in my condition. However, that all changed when I went in for my first visit and Heather took the time to explain my condition and how we were going to work together to overcome it.

I remember leaving her office with a glimmer of hope that I could live a normal life. As my sessions continued I began to see immediate results. With only four sessions and a strict dedication to my home programs I was cured of Vaginismus. In the beginning of this process I was made aware that my health insurance company might not cover the costs, which was disappointing but today I can say one hundred percent that it was the best money I ever spent. Now thanks to Heather I am finally enjoying my life to the fullest with my husband. Thank you Heather, I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate all that you have done for me. I will never forget it. Those who are suffering from these types of conditions don’t be afraid because she makes you feel so comfortable and the end result is worth it. Good luck to you all and I hope you experience the success I have.

Testimonial by T.C.

While pregnant with my twins, Heather took care with keeping me on my feet and pain free. She saved my back, my sanity and the holidays! I would recommend her to every “mom” looking to stay on her feet during pregnancy and post-partum.

Testimonial by S.H., age 24

I just wanted to thank you for everything you've done for me for the past 19 months. I literally could not have reached my goals without you and your practice. You gave me the courage to keep moving forth with my treatment no matter how afraid and anxious I was. You were always there to answer questions and made this whole process so much easier than I expected it to be.

It's because of you that my marriage is on the right track, that I can get pregnant and that this part of my life is finally over. I really feel that Fusion Wellness is a team of people you can call family and are there to root for you and cheer you on until you reach your goals. There is nothing better than knowing I accomplished this with you guys by my side and as calmly and patiently as I needed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for always being there and helping me reach my goals.

Testimonial by R.M., Age 40

I can’t speak highly enough of the theapists at Femina Physical Therapy and how much they have helped me grow, discover, and love my body. I had had painful sex for my entire life, and didn’t know that there was anything that could be done about it. It was at the point where my husband and I were not having sex for MONTHs, because it was just too frustrating, and I hated feeling like I was the ONLY woman out there who had this problem, especially at my age. I finally brought it up to my doctor because I was turning 40 and my husband and I were barely having enough sex to conceive. And she brought up pelvic floor, PT. I didn’t even know this was a “thing”.
