We are not physical therapists and do not make diagnosis or offer individual treatment plans. We are the proud manufacturers of a highly regarded and effective product that can be a part of a multi-faceted treatment option for relieving the pelvic discomfort and pain of Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndromes. 

Our original products are the Essential and the Premium TheraWands. Previously named V-Wand (Essential) and LA-Wand (Premium). 

The TheraWand can be inserted vaginally or rectally. (For purposes of this document, ‘anal’ and ‘rectal’ will be used interchangeably.)  Each TheraWand has two release ends. There is also a slight difference in the overall thickness between the Essential and Premium wands.

  • Overall thickness is 7/8 inches
  • Overall length is 8 inches

Premium TheraWand:

  • Tapered end is 5/8 inches

Overall length is 9 inchesBoth wands are frequently bought by all genders. However, the Premium TheraWand is often purchased for rectal insertion due to the thinner diameter of it’s tapered end. The Premium TheraWand is also slightly longer. 

The Essential TheraWand and the Premium TheraWand each have two release ends. This design is specific to the patented design of the TheraWand. 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.

We recently introduced two additional wands. 

 

Trigger Wand:

The Trigger Wand is inserted anally and was designed to reach front (anterior), side (lateral) and back (posterior) pelvic floor or intrapelvic areas. The Trigger Wand aids in reachability for larger individuals or individuals with limited mobility. General instructions edited by Elizabeth Makous MSPT included as well as a lovely carrying pouch. The Trigger Wand is the inspiration of Elizabeth Makous MSPT CLT PRPC.

Pocket Wand:

The Pocket Wand was created to be a simple and convenient travel companion, easily fitting in your purse or carry on luggage. The Pocket Wand’s ‘finger – like’ shape make discomfort and pain relief available anytime, anywhere. For instance, elevating one leg in an airline bathroom is a comfortable and effective position for using the Pocket Wand on-the-go.
