Tightly Wound recently released on Iris!

Tightly Wound has been released, watch it today and share it with your loved ones and anyone else who may need more education on vaginismus and pain with sex.

Tightly Wound is a 15-minute animated short by Shelby Hadden. Our very own Heather Jeffcoat, DPT is one of the producers of film. Check out the video here.

The film follows Shelby’s journey with vaginismus; a condition characterized by involuntary contractions of the pelvic floor muscles including the muscles at the opening of the vagina. These contractions cause pain, problems with penetration, and make intercourse very painful and seemingly impossible.

The film has earned an Honorable Mention at the Nashville Film Festival and has been accepted into numerous film festivals in the US and Europe, including the prestigious Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France.

We love this film! It is one step towards destigmatizing women’s sexual health disorders. Share this film with your medical providers, partners, friends, family, and anyone else who needs more education about vaginismus.

Do you have sexual pain? Pelvic floor therapy can help. 

If you have pain with sex, tampon use, gynecological exams, or another form of penetration, give the therapists at Femina Physical Therapy a call today.

      I wanted to let you know that my pelvic floor held strong and gave me no trouble whatsoever in my trail race this morning (12 miles)! 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. That was especially valuable on the technical downhill - I just flew down the trail because I had confidence in my balance and form. Thank you for helping me get back to doing what I love. -- A.W., age 32(completed Post-partum Renewal...

      Femina PT (née Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy) has been such an answer to prayer, i'm so glad I found them! I've been struggling with vaginismus my whole life, but didn't have a name for it until about 6 or 7 months ago. Even once I did have a name for it though, I didn't know where to begin in getting help. My OB/GYN had me get a set of dilators, but I couldn't even insert the smallest one by myself. Most times I tried I just ended up frustrated and in tears. I felt really alone, like I...
