Vaginismus is considered one of the most successfully treatable female sexual disorders. Many studies have shown treatment success rates approaching nearly 100%. Treatment resolution follows a manageable, step-by-step process.
Limbic System Retraining
Mind + Body Training
Vaginismus is caused by a limbic system response toward penetration that activates vaginal muscle tightness.
The limbic system, also known as the feeling and reacting part of the brain, controls functions needed for self-preservation. Among the system's many responsibilities, it is involved with interpreting events and body protections for emotions and memory to trigger necessary body reactions. The mind and body can hold a negative view of different forms of penetration that trigger a physical over-reaction.
The good news is that this associative reaction can be changed through mind and body training, for complete resolution of vaginismus.
Successful vaginismus treatment does not require drugs, surgery, hypnosis, nor any other complex invasive technique.
Effective treatment approaches combine pelvic floor control exercises, insertion or dilation training, pain elimination techniques, transition steps, and exercises designed to help women identify, express and resolve any contributing emotional components.
Penetration difficulties from vaginismus are fully treatable and can be completely overcome with no remaining pain or discomfort.
Women experiencing ongoing sexual tightness, discomfort and pain, penetration problems, or unconsummated relationships can expect remarkable resolution of their vaginismus, allowing resumption of full, pain-free intercourse.
Treatment steps can usually be completed at home using a self-help approach, allowing a woman to work at her own pace in privacy, or in cooperation with her health care provider or specialist.
Vaginismus treatment exercises follow a manageable, step-by-step process.
Couples are often amazed by the sudden life-changing effects of treatment, following a step-by-step approach.
A Treatment Program is Important
Some of the steps to treat vaginismus are counter-intuitive and not immediately obvious. As failure at any point inhibits recovery and can cause avoidance or abandonment of progress, it is best to approach vaginismus with an educated understanding to ensure success in dealing with it.
We're pleased to introduce a new and innovative program, designed for the whole woman—mind + body + soul.
A part of our new program is a private zoom vaginismus support group, designed to help with community.
Our updated book is easier than ever to navigate, offering an a la carte approach for the spectrum of women and teen girls affected by impossible penetration.
With a combination of grace and truth, females can break the shame, normalize their bodily functions, and learn how to relax their overresponsive muscles.
