Who Are Soul Source?

Soul Source Products

Soul Source is a specialist manufacturer of vaginal dilators, owners Jane and Lloyd Silverstein have been supporting individuals to manage their gynaecological  and sexual health since the 1990s. At Pelvic Relief we have worked with Soul Source since our company was founded in 2015. We believe Soul Source’s unique range of graded vaginal dilators are best-in-class and uniquely suited to meet the specific needs of our customers.  

Dilation Therapy 

Vaginal dilators are designed to meet the needs of patients at different stages of dilation therapy whether through cancer treatment or to manage a pelvic pain condition. Soul Source silicone dilators were designed by Jillian Romm, a highly regarded sex therapist at Oregon Health and Science University and a Gynaecologist colleague. They are made from medical-grade latex free and BPS free silicone. The high grade silicone is flexible, smooth yet resilient with a texture that resembles body tissue to ensure comfort. They were designed specifically to not resemble adult toys, in a pastel colour palette, the result was beautiful, non-threatening and comfortable dilators.

Often overlooked when treating gynaecological health conditions, dilators can form a vital part of a rehabilitation programme. Due to the delicate nature of the mucosal vaginal tissue it is important to select materials that are hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and free from phthalates and latex and are easy to clean to protect the vagina. It also means they are suitable for those with sensitive skin or allergies. 

Soul Source silicone dilators come in 8 graded sizes and can be bought individually or in graded sets. The skin-safe material is recommended by healthcare professionals. 

Gynaecologists, Pelvic Physiotherapists and Psychosexual Theapists specialising in pelvic health all recommend Soul Source products for their patients across the world.

"Soul Source dilators are an excellent tool in my practice. Their design and material quality provide my patients with the comfort and effectiveness they need to follow through with their dilation therapy consistently." Dr. Heather Jeffcoat D.P.T, specialist Women’s Health Physiotherapist and author of Sex Without Pain: A Self-Treatment Guide To The Sex Life You Deserve.

Dilation Therapy for GRS post operative care

Soul Source is also the manufacturer of specialist dilators for dilation therapy for individuals post Gender Reconstruction Surgery (GRS) often described as Feminisation Surgery, Gender Confirmation Surgery (GCS) Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS) or Male to Female Surgery (MTF). Dilation therapy will help to maintain the width and depth of the vaginal canal, preventing scar tissue from forming and ensuring the neo vagina remains functional and comfortable. The curved design of these rigid dilators allows for easier insertion under the pubic bone. This design consideration enhances comfort and reduces the risk of injury or discomfort during use.

The Soul Source GRS dilators were designed by world renowned Gynaecologist Dr Marci Bowers M.D. Dr Bowers is acknowledged as a pioneer in Gender Affirmation Surgery with more than 29 years experience. Dr Bowers highlights the importance of post-operative care in patients post surgery, 

"Using well-designed, skin-safe dilators like those from Soul Source can significantly impact the healing process and overall success of the surgery." 

Curved Design and Practical Benefits

The carefully engineered shape and material of these dilators help facilitate a smoother, more effective dilation process, which is vital for long-term physical health and well-being.

The curved design of Soul Source silicone dilators makes them uniquely suited to meet the post operative needs of patients post GRS surgery. It allows individuals to navigate the natural contours of the body more easily, reducing pressure against the pubic bone and minimising discomfort. They also come with depth markers for individuals to monitor progress and communicate more easily with their surgical team. This thoughtful design can make a significant difference in the ease of use and the effectiveness of the therapy.
