Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy is a very important aspect of pelvic floor physical therapy. Pelvic floor physical therapy usually involves biofeedback and exercises to encourage relaxation and strengthening of the muscles of the lower pelvic area. Pelvic floor physical therapy can help address sexual health problems by improving persistent vaginal or pelvic pain and urinary incontinence. The TheraWand’s brilliant curves and dual release-ends make it perfect for pelvic massage, trigger point release and pelvic wellness. The proven and patented designs are recommended by medical professionals worldwide.
I am the inventor of the Therawand. We have helped thousands of men and women with their pelvic health therapy over the years. I have learned the that one product may not have all the proper functions you need for your home pelvic floor therapy.

2. VuVa Magnetic Vaginal Dilators
What happens when you use a VuVa™ Neodymium Magnetic Dilator? How do I use VuVa™ Dilators?
Soft tissue lengthens, relaxing muscles and ligaments. As the tissue relaxes, the Neodymium magnets increase blood flow to the painful area calming nerves. VuVa™ Dilators are the only patented dilators available with Neodymium magnets.
Magnetic Therapy is based on the premise that all living organisms exist in a magnetic field, including the human body. The human body generates its own magnetic field. Therefore, the body can heal itself when electromagnetic energy is in balance.
The “North Pole” of a Neodymium magnet is often referred to by medical researchers as the “healing side” of the magnet. The VuVa™ Vaginal Dilator set contains over sixty strategically positioned Neodymium magnets that allow this field of soothing energy to flow into the body.
Iron is a component of our blood content and every ion - or atom - contained in our cells carries oxygen and produces an electrical impulse. These two elements make up our bodies own electrical magnetic field.
This means when the negative north side of a magnet is placed next to a painful area, it draws fresh oxygenated blood to the nerves and surrounding muscles. This, in contrast, is a positive energy field. The positive energy field creates two results: as magnets are alkaline, it counteracts any acidity in the body caused by disease and fresh blood helps to remove any acidity from the body which, in turn, accelerates healing while reducing pain. Here is a study about blood viscosity and magnet therapy on PubMed.gov
How do I know what size I need?
We recommend you start out with a size that you can insert with ease to get the feel of magnetic dilator therapy and to help with the fear of penetration if present. We do have single dilators available, but suggest a Combo Set or Full Set so you have the necessary sizes to achieve desired results. We recommend asking your health care professional about the correct sizes you may need.
Please consult with a medical professional before beginning any type of treatment or vaginal health therapy.
FOR BEST RESULTS USE VUVA™ VAGINAL DILATORS 1-2 TIMES A DAY.
Wash dilators with a mild, fragrance-free soap and warm water. Let the dilators air dry.
Start by testing the smaller size VuVa™ Vaginal Dilators to see which vagina dilator size you are comfortable inserting. You may find that when you are first starting to use dilators, you can only tolerate the tip and that is normal. Increase dilator size only after you can insert current size dilator with ease.
Lubricate the VuVa™ Vaginal Dilator and vagina opening generously with a lubricant of your choice. IMPORTANT: Do not use petroleum jelly (e.g. Vaseline).
In a private place, preferably a bed, lie on your back or in the fetal position. Bend both knees and spread your legs apart. Taking calm breaths, relax your body. Using gentle pressure, insert the smaller round end of the dilator into your vagina. Make sure that the dilator shaft is inserted as deeply as is comfortable for you. Do not insert entire dilator: leave larger, round flat end outside of vaginal opening.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT WALK AROUND WITH DILATOR INSERTED. DO NOT USE DILATORS DURING SEXUAL INTERCOURSE.
Remain lying on your back while the VuVa™ Vaginal Dilator is in place. Leave it in for 20-30 minutes (the longer the better) before taking it out. You may have to hold dilator in place, as your vaginal muscles may try to push it out.
When you can insert smaller dilator with ease, you may progress up to the next size within the same session. Your muscles should be relaxed. Moving to the next size vaginal dilator should then be easier. Note: progressing up in size may take days or weeks to complete comfortably.
Wash the vaginal dilators after use with mild, fragrance-free soap and warm water. Let the vaginal dilators air dry.
Important Tips: If you cannot use your dilators for 20 minutes the first time, do not get discouraged. When you are using dilators for pelvic pain, everyone will progress at a different rate depending on the severity of your condition. If you can only do one minute a day for the first week or two, that is fine. You should not go over a 3-4 pain level out of 10 when you are dilating. If you are having trouble progressing up to the next size, ask your pelvic floor physical therapist to check your muscles to pinpoint what could be causing the issue. Pelvic floor physical therapists can be very helpful with your dilator set. You can also rotate your dilator slightly to help loosen muscles a bit more.
After Using Your Vaginal Dilator Tips: from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centers
You may have a small amount of vaginal bleeding while using the dilator or after you’re finished using it. This is normal. You may want to wear a panty liner after dilator therapy. If you have a lot of bleeding, such as bleeding that soaks up a sanitary napkin (pad), or if bleeding continues for longer than 1 day, call your healthcare provider.
If you get urinary tract infections (UTIs) often, you may want to urinate (pee) after using your dilator.
If you have any questions or problems, talk with your healthcare provider at your next appointment.
VuVa™ Magnetic Vaginal Dilator Tip:
