Pelvic Pain Clinic

“Pelvic Pain Clinic is a wonderful and much-needed resource for people living with pelvic pain, and for the health-care professionals who serve them.”
Corinne Diachuk, President, Somatic Sex Educators Association


This unique approach to the treatment of pelvic pain transforms the cycle of pain, anxiety and tension into one of increasing ease, confidence and pleasure.Many lives and relationships are profoundly impacted by persistent pelvic pain.

Original medical conditions frequently become complicated with anxiety, depression and social isolation, as pelvic pain affects sexual pleasure and intimate relationships. All too often, people do not feel empowered to talk with medical professionals and partners. Health-care providers are uneducated on key issues including the impact of trauma, the importance of honoring gender diversity, and treatments that support tissue health and pleasure sensitivity, instead of simply numbing pain.

This book shows you how to:

  • work with and through the body to resolve pain and access pleasure
    become trauma-informed, and understand the impact of trauma and stress on pelvic pain
  • map pelvic and genital anatomy
  • communicate openly with medical professionals and partners
  • have touch practices that address pain and explore pleasure
    engage pleasure as a resource for healing pelvic pain

This book is a textbook for the Somatic Sex Education Professional Training, and these practices are taught in Caffyn’s own online program on the Art and Science of Sacred Intimacy.

“You have and still remain a guiding light, a profound love - across dimensions and illusions of time and space - and a beacon of remembering 'what we are.' In me, You are a Calling Home.”

“You opened up a new doorway for me, about how I could be, what my life, my world and my community could look like. You are so powerful, so special - you show me what it means to be a teacher: fallible, full of flaws, and full of beauty, truth and power.”
Kai Cheng Thom
“You are a fiercely loving powerhouse of change and remembering - of the body, stories and erotic wisdom.”

“It is especially important to me personally that you are holding a torch for erotic wellbeing and authentic sexual expression. It is so rare to know an elder who carries wisdom and hope to heal one of humanity's deepest shadows.”

“I couldn't be more grateful for the grace, kindness, love, acceptance and empowerment that I've been shown and taught. I am left speechless when I contemplate the life I've lived before this work, and the massive change and transformation I've found as a result of engaging with this paradigm of relationship with my self and other selves. So thank you, from the depths of my soul, for being you, and sharing you.”
