SEXUAL HEALTH & RECLAIMING INTIMACY
Reclaiming Intimacy is at the forefront of promoting sexual health & rehabilitation for cancer & illness patients. We are starting a movement to break the taboo, open communication, & help restore intimacy after the impact of cancer and medical treatments.
We are dedicated to helping advocates and the medical community so they can better serve patients and their partners to strengthen their relationship. Talking about sexual dysfunction and providing care removes the unknown, reconnecting survivors to a vital part of the self.
Reclaiming sexuality assists in healing both mind and body through cancer & illness. Framing changes in sexuality as something to be embraced gives hope and connects partners, pulling people from the isolation. Patient advocates are a critical part of survivor quality of life-talking about sexual rehabilitation restores, bringing a higher quality of life.
Providing information and answering questions should be done with a proactive, consistent approach because healthcare providers may or may not provide complete answers. Especially with sexual health, more often than not, healthcare providers and physicians will not address questions or concerns. Many are unsure how to approach, or refer out for these issues.
Whatever treatment plan, stage of illness, or phase of life, Reclaiming Intimacy serves caretakers, patients, families, advocates, physicians, medical professionals and partners through education and providing support.
WHY IS SEXUAL HEALTH IMPORTANT TO OUR PARTNERS?
Not all medical professionals take into account the sexual health of cancer & illness survivors. By and large, medical professionals do not regularly talk about sexual health and that leaves patients with distressing problems, question, and no answers. This leaves patients with the difficult task of finding tools and resources for sexual health on their own.
Patients are seeking information through advocate agencies and, in many cases, still unable to receive this vital information. Unfortunately, organizations have been unwilling to include sexual rehabilitation because of cultural taboos. Normalizing these conversations, providing assistance and sexual therapeutic aids are proactive steps toward treating sexual health like any other aspect of survivorship care.
Where can a cancer or medical patient go to get information if advocates can’t help? Many patients give up, feeling a part of their life is forever gone. The take away- patients are getting the message that their sexual health isn’t an important part of their quality of life.
We offer a multitude of related products, also known as therapeutic aids, to improve & maximize sexual health rehabilitation. Our products, available for both men & women, are designed, engineered, & created especially for therapy and rehabilitation. Each product is carefully hand selected by our expert staff after doing extensive research.
Reclaiming Intimacy features products and therapeutic aids, in addition to offering extensive resources and educational services, to build and shape a culture where sexual health is viewed as any other aspect of survivorship care.
Part of our movement is ridding the cultural taboos around sexual dysfunction. Sexual aids for patients will promote sexual health rehabilitation and eventually start to spotlight this rarely talked about, yet critical, aspect of cancer & illness survivorship and life.
