Painful Sex

Ouching instead of oh-ing? We can work on that.

Sex can be uncomfortable or painful for tons of reasons. This pain can be felt more towards the surface of the body (superficial) or deeper in the body (deep). Sometimes both! Treatments commonly used in pelvic PT can help decrease these unpleasant sensations so you can focus on connecting and feeling good. From sexual positioning, to manual muscle release techniques and meditation—discover a whole new toolbox for improving your sexual wellbeing.

Perfect for everyone—it’s a fundamental step and a daily practice.

Equipment: mat (optional)

Diaphragmatic Breathing is one of the first things I teach my patients. Perfect for everyone—it’s a fundamental step and a daily practice. This can be helpful for anyone, especially those with breathing that isn’t coordinated to the pelvic floor (paradoxical breathers). It can also be helpful for those just starting out with pelvic floor PT and needing a baseline.
