Mr David Griffiths and his team were one of the very first centres in the UK to offer revolutionary the ThermiVa procedure, a non surgical out patient treatment for vulvovaginal symptoms. We are so fortunate to have Mr Griffiths working in conjunction with Marta Kinsella, our respected and lead specialist pelvic health physiotherapist, to provide this service to our clients.

 

The following is what Mr Griffiths and Marta’s clients have to say about their experience with ThermiVa.

 

‘After experiencing leakage when coughing, sneezing and exercising since the birth of my children 23 and 21 years ago, I have for the first time, attended a full-on gym class without a pad and remained totally dry. Also, I had a sense of a slight bulge ‘down below’ and now that area feels very much tighter and pulled up; I am still waiting to test out the ‘other’ additional benefits of the treatment and will keep you posted. If this is my experience after the first treatment I can’t wait to see how things will be after the third’.

 

‘Now my treatment has finished, I thought I’d write a few words about my experience. I was diagnosed with urge incontinence by my doctor, which at the age of 45 I was surprised to be suffering from. As other patients have stated in their reviews, I too was sceptical that the ThermiVa treatment would produce results for me. I can very happily report that after just one treatment all of my symptoms had disappeared. The treatment itself is pain free and each of the 3 appointments took approximately 30 mins. After the first treatment I experienced period like pain for a couple of hours but did not notice this after the remaining 2 treatments. I am extremely pleased with the fast results and would not hesitate in recommending this treatment to others’.

 

‘Dear David, Just to let you know that things are very much improved following my session on Thursday. I haven’t had a leaking bladder doing exercise and we have had intercourse with very little discomfort for the first time in 10 years which is the best news ever. I am so exited to see how it will be after the next 2 treatments as I already feel like a new woman now’.

 

‘Dear Mr Griffiths, the treatment has been brilliant! There’s definitely a marked change already, only having problems with an extreme sneeze or cough. I still can’t quite believe it! Thank you so so much.

 

‘Thank you for my treatment on Tuesday evening, I have to say that I am already seeing quite a change in the outside area of the vagina. I have not seen my partner yet so cannot comment on the sexual side, but I do feel that my pelvic floor muscles are also definitely stronger already.

 

‘Yes I am really pleased with the results so far. I have not felt clean and fresh for so long and this week has been absolutely amazing.

 

‘Just to let you know I have very positive feedback from the ThermiVa treatment yesterday! For the first time in about a year I had absolutely no pain during intercourse and I was actually able to enjoy this part of my marriage again. I’m looking forward to seeing how things continue to improve and finally feeling more myself again!

 

‘Amazing! I’m not ill I know, but I would go so far as to say that the results really are quite life changing and have given me a huge confidence boost. And this is the result of just one treatment! There must be thousands of women out there who would benefit.’

 

“It has revitalised our sex life” and the fact I don’t need to run to the loo constantly means that I can also enjoy my love of walking more without the stress of worrying where the nearest loos are.”

 

‘I just wanted to thank you again for my ThermiVa treatments. I was very nervous but you made me feel at ease throughout each session and I am extremely happy with the results!’

 

‘I have noticed a huge improvement in my everyday activities. I don’t feel worried about taking the kids trampolining etc now I can actually join in with them rather than just sit out watching them, and when I go running I don’t need to prepare for little accidents! I have also noticed that I can do my pelvic floor muscle exercises so much better, holding the tension for longer and actually feel them working!’

 

‘My partner noticed the difference ‘in the bedroom’ straight away too, and I have gained more confidence which has been amazing for both of us. Thank you again, I highly recommend this treatment.. worth every penny!’.

 

‘As promised a few words to say how the experience of Therma Va was and how it has improved my life and my husbands!’.

 

‘The first session was a tad nerve racking with not knowing how the procedure was going to actually feel, I had researched all about it on the internet and read the information you had provided so I was as prepared as I could be. I have to say all the way home after the first session I was chuckling to myself recalling the nervous chit chat I was talking about whilst you reassuringly carried out the “Magic Wand wave !” After talking none stop to my husband about it you were renamed ” Harry Potter” and I will say that even after the first session I felt a difference almost straight away, I didn’t feel that heavy pressure feeling I had come so used to feeling and the test of all tests, I sneezed and the first time in several years I didn’t have that “oops” moment’.

 

‘My husband and I were also very keen to see if there was any changes for him and like excitable teenagers we couldn’t wait to make love , and I’m pleased to say that the magic had worked. There was an improvement in the tightness which was noticeable and more sensual for the both of us and we couldn’t wait to see what the next session would bring’…

 

‘Each session bought even more effective results and even the panty liners are a thing of the past as I haven’t had any oops moments and I feel so much more confident with laughing, especially when leaving notes for my husband saying ” going to be late home , going to see Harry Potter ” and of course more confident when sneezing!’.

 

‘Throughout the treatment you and your team made me feel relaxed and reassured and I would recommend the treatment’.

 

‘Now my treatment has finished, I thought I’d write a few words about my experience. I was diagnosed with urge incontinence by my doctor, which at the age of 45 I was surprised to be suffering from. As other patients have stated in their reviews, I too was sceptical that the ThermiVa treatment would produce results for me’.

‘I am extremely pleased with the fast results and would not hesitate in recommending this treatment to others’.

 

‘I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am after my first treatment. I was suffering from urinary stress incontinence and (I hate to admit it) occasional slight faecal leakage. I suppose that this may well have been the result of previous forceps and Ventouse deliveries.I now no longer feel the need to wear a pad “just in case” and as a consequence feel much happier and more confident. I should also let you know that it has had a real impact on my sex life. I have been married for 38 years, and since my treatment, both my husband and me find that sex is as good as it was before I had my children (20 years ago)’.

‘Well I thought I should wait for two days to give you my feedback – and I am delighted (and very very grateful!) to say it’s worked!! I honestly cannot believe it. First day I went for a 50 minute walk with my dog (wearing a pad just in case) and I was worried that I was leaking but when I got home I was dry. Today, completely dry again. After the procedure I did have a heavy feeling a bit like a period pain which dragged on until mid morning next day, but today, no sensation or heavy feeling at all. Initially I have to admit I was a bit cynical thinking it couldn’t possibly work but – so far so good and I’m thrilled to bits!!’

 

‘I have suffered with bladder problems since giving birth to my eldest daughter 28 years ago, a long labour, and subsequently I developed a prolapse. After completing my family I had an anterior repair in 2002 but gradually over the years my vagina walls became lax again despite pelvic floor exercises, also because I’m quite active physically I did cause strain on the pelvic floor during yoga classes. It was beginning to cause me severe distress at times even though I didn’t suffer from urinary incontinence it would feel very uncomfortable towards the end of the day, a heavy and dragging feeling’.

 

‘I’m also recently in a new relationship so felt quite self conscious during intercourse. I’m pleased to say that my partner (who didn’t know I was having the procedure) also noticed a difference. Following the treatment I started to notice everything felt firmer and that even after a long day at work, where I’m on my feet a lot and do a lot of walking, it felt firmer and more supported. My frequency has improved plus my urine flow seems to be better. I’m looking forward to seeing the difference after 2 more treatments, and hopefully I won’t require anymore surgery, which is certainly something I would wish to avoid’.

 

‘I had previously had surgery for a uterine prolapse and more recently an anterior repair for a bladder prolapse, but I still felt a bulge in the vagina, vaginal dryness and sex was uncomfortable with out the use of lubricant. Following my first treatment of Thermiva the feeling of a bulge in the vagina has improved and already feels tighter, also externally the labia feels fuller, I have not had to use the lubricant as before and the vaginal dryness is much improved and sex is much more pleasurable. The treatment was pain free and had no adverse side effects and was able to continue with normal activities straight away. I am looking forward to continuing with the treatment and seeing further improvement’.
