What is a Therawand? What are the types and how can it help me?
The Therawand is a clinically proven therapeutic internal massage and trigger point release wands. The TheraWand’s brilliant curves and dual release-ends make it perfect for pelvic massage, trigger point release and sexual wellness. The proven and patented designs are recommended by medical professionals worldwide.
Being in the pelvic health business, I have learned the that one product may not have all the proper functions you need for your home pelvic floor therapy. While you can do slight trigger point therapy with our VuVa Dilators, you really need a Therawand pelvic wand to reach trigger points successfully. This company aligns themselves with the same values as ours, made in America, exemplary manufacturing and strict quality control.
I talk to many PT's every week that have been using the Therawand for years with their patients, so I decided to write a blog to tell you about my two favorite Therawands and the difference between the two.
What are the two most popular types of Therawands?
- 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
The LA TheraWand is a highly regarded therapeutic manual massage device designed with direct input by leading pelvic floor therapists. The brilliant curves and design make the LA-Wand perfect for gentle intrapelvic massage. This wand allows you to massage irritable, tight or sore trigger points in the pelvic floor musculature to relieve pelvic discomfort and pain.
As a sexual wellness product, the TheraWand is also excellent for addressing anorgasmia. The LA-Wand has two Release-Ends that consist of a finger-tip like tapered end for easy insertion and a 'bobble' end offering greater surface area. The bobbled end can also be used as a handle. The LA-Wand measures 9″ in length and can aid reachability for larger individuals or for those with limited mobility. The overall diameter is 5/8" and the bobbles are 7/8" wide. This wand can be used both rectally and vaginally. The LA-Wand is the preferred wand for anal use due to its thinner width.
- Overall thickness is 7/8 inches
- Overall length is 8 inches
- Finger-tip like end
- Opposable thumb shape end
The brilliant curves and design make the V-Wand perfect for gentle intrapelvic massage. This Wand allows you to massage irritable, tight or sore trigger points in the pelvic floor musculature to relieve pelvic discomfort and pain. As a sexual wellness product, the TheraWand is also excellent for addressing anorgasmia. The V-Wand has two Release-Ends, that include an opposable-thumb shape for when greater surface area is needed and a finger-tip like tapered end for more precise contact. The V-Wand has a diameter of 7/8" and measures 8" long. This wand can be used both rectally and vaginally.
How can Therawand's help me?
The TheraWand enables you to control the exact location and amount of pressure applied. In addition to the internal operator muscles this wand can reach the transverse perineal, pubo, vaginalis, and all three components of the levator ani muscle.
If you suffer from pelvic pain conditions such as, Therawands can help by helping with trigger point therapy:
- Vulvar Vestibulitis
- Pelvic Radiation Therapy
- Vaginal Stenosis
- Vaginal Atrophy
- Pudendal Neuralgia
- Vaginal Agenesis
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.
