As of Dec 31st 2018 the EPI-NO will no longer be licensed in Canada.
The reason is due to cost - it has gone up 10x and the manufacturer (along with 150 other manufacturers) is pulling out of Canada.
Sad but true so once stock runs out that's it for the EPI-NO in Canada.
We currently have 30 units left in stock.
Item is not available for shipment to the USA.
Will ship to Canadian addresses only and must be a Canadian shipping and billing address.
Any orders placed with a US Billing address will be refunded.

ABOUT THE EPI-NO
The idea which led to the development of the EPI-NO originated in Africa where women insert calabashes/gourds of increasing size gently into the vagina to stretch the perineum and pelvic floor muscles to facilitate a natural birth and reduce the risk of perineal injury. From this age old African custom - still in use today - the soft inflatable EPI-NO balloon and birth-exercise program was conceived and developed into a modern-day medical device by Dr. Whilhelm Horkel, together with a team of gynecologists, midwives, urogenital physiotherapists and pregnant women.
The team also recognized the usefulness of the EPI-NO for women who are not pregnant but were experiencing challenges with a weak pelvic floor. EPI-NO provides a non-surgical, drug free alternative that lets women put pelvic floor wellness in the palm of their hand. Building on the Kegel exercise developed by gynecologist Dr. Arnold H. Kegel, the EPI-NO allows this simple biofeedback to make the exercises prescribed for conditions such as incontinence, more effective.
Manufactured by Tecsana - a German company whose name means "Gentle Technology" the EPI-NO is a revolutionary device for proactive pelvic floor wellness as well as a proven and effective tool to regenerate strength and tone to weakened pelvic floor muscles.
The EPI-NO is contraindicated for women with vaginal varicosities and placenta previa.
