It's time to explore (literally) beyond the clit.

Since its inception in 1981 Shape Magazine has been one of the most popular health and fitness magazines on America's newsstands, grabbing the title of #1 women's fitness magazine along the way. 

In the digital realm shape.com ranks in the top 2500 nationally according to Alexa, and with a ranking of around 6,800 worldwide, they are a powerhouse of traffic in the realm of women's health and vitality.

Their latest article penned by Gigi Engle and filed under "Sex and Love" blows the hood off not only the clitoris, but the G-spot, the A-spot, the O-spot, and the V-spot. The G-spot comes first, and Gigi turns to Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, founder of Femina Physical Therapy for a quick rundown of the associated anatomy:

Livestrong.com is a quite popular website that (in their own words) "provides the blueprint to simple healthy living". It was founded by world champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, and it covers a wide variety of topics that help people make better choices about their health and wellness.

The website "Greatist" recently penned a quite informative article on Kegels, and of course they reached out to Heather Jeffcoat for her expert opinion!

“The pelvic floor muscles are just like any other voluntary muscle in the body, so we can treat them in a similar fashion as we’d treat other muscles: with manual therapy, corrective exercises and nervous system relaxation,” explains Jeffcoat.

From the Greatist "about us" page:

We cover the health and wellness stuff that matters — plus anything else that's cool, important, or maybe even life-changing. Our goal is to help you take healthy — or healthy-ish — actions every day to live your best life. We give you the tools. You make the rules.

Women's Health Magazine quotes Heather Jeffcoat on flatter abs and more

The widely repsected magazine "Women's Health" reached out to Heather Jeffcoat to open their most recent article on pelvic floor health and alternatives to Kegels, including yoga poses such as the Pelvic Brace, Pelvic Tilt, Deep Squat, and more. The opening paragraph reads:

Having a strong pelvic floor is ideal for lots of reasons. “Your pelvic floor works in tandem with the deep abdominal muscles, acting as an internal corset, which can help reduce low back pain, urinary and bowel incontinence and improve sexual function—good coordination of this muscle group is also a great step towards flatter abs," says pelvic floor physical therapist, Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, founder of Femina Physical Therapy.

Once again Cosmopolitan Magazine's online staff has tapped Heather Jeffcoat

for her expertise in all things related to pelvic floor health

Listen: As someone who enjoys the feeling of soreness post-workout, I can assure you that I do not feel the same way the morning-after a different kind of sweat sesh. And, just a guess, but I'm going to assume that a sore vagina after sex doesn't feel too great for you either. For one, you might not know why or what is causing the soreness—which is, like, super irritating.

Secondly, you may not know how to help or soothe your sore vagina because sex-ed contributed *literally* nothing to your sexual wellness knowledge. And third, you can't easily engage in round two, or three, or four with your S.O. the morning after because, umm… ouch.

What They Say About Us

    • Testimonial by Rosanna R., age 35

      Heather has affected my life in the MOST POSITIVE way and I am forever grateful.  My husband refers to her as the "sex doctor" so you can only imagine how happy he is with my therapy outcome.  After the birth of my son I suffered from "Vaginismus", however, at the time I just thought I was broken. My "broken vagina" affected me physically but it was an emotional struggle as well. Many women in my life also suffered with pain from sex after their babies were born so I knew I wasn't alone.  They...

      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)!

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...
