Trusted Professional Resource Guide:

Although her book "Sex Without Pain" offers a comprehensive self-treatment program, Heather firmly believes that the best way to treat pain with intercourse is to involve a team of competent, supportive professional experts.

In addition, an initial evaluation by a physician (to rule out medical sources of pain), and a consultation with a physical therapist are highly recommended (and may be necessary) before beginning this, or any other, self-treatment or exercise program.

      Femina PT (née Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy) has honestly changed my life. Before receiving treatment at Femina, I was going to doctor to doctor to try and find the answer to my pelvic pain. It has taken me YEARS to find someone that can help fix this.
