Frequently Asked Questions
Self-massage with the TheraWand empowers the user to control the exact amount and location of pressure applied. The brilliant release-ends make our Wands perfect for women and men to use intravaginally and/or intrarectally to gently massage Pelvic Floor Muscles that are tender, tight or have Trigger-Points.
The TheraWand products are the original premier pelvic massagers.
A TheraWand can be inserted vaginally or rectally. (For purposes of this document, ‘anal’ and ‘rectal’ will be used interchangeably.) Each Wand has two release ends. There is a slight difference in the overall thickness between the V-Wand and LA-Wand. The TheraWand® is 100% Acrylic which is many times stronger than glass and is BPA Free. Please see the individual product pages for a full description of the wands.
- Overall thickness is 7/8 inches
- Overall length is 8 inches
- Finger-tip like end
- Opposable thumb shape end
- Tapered end is 5/8 inches thick
- Bobbled end is 7/8 inches thick
- Overall length is 9 inches
- Elliptical tapered end 4 Bobbles end
Both wands are frequently bought by all genders. However, the LA-Wand is purchased for rectal insertion due to the thinner diameter of it’s tapered end. The LA-Wand is also slightly longer which aids reachability.
Either end can be used for insertion or as a handle. The different release ends are effective for internal massage and trigger point release and simply offer preference for the user.
The V-Wand and LA-Wand come sealed in plastic and with a beautiful carrying pouch. Included with each is a pamphlet that contains general instructions and a product insert sheet.
