Female Sexual Dysfunctions

Vaginismus (the clenching of the vaginal walls such that penetration is not possible) and Vulvodynia (pain in the vulva) are two common female sexual problems that our therapists often help clients with. A detailed sexual history will be taken and various somatic psychotherapeutic techniques (such as EMDR) will be used in sessions to help clients reprogram the body-mind sexual response cycle. Often your therapist will recommend that you work with a dilator kit at home or simultaneously consult with a vaginal physical therapist during your work. A holistic approach must be taken to achieve long-term, healthy gains.
