Prostate Massage and A Healthy Prostate
Prostate massage has long been used as a means of maintaining good prostate health and to induce increased sexual health. In recent years, many medical journals have published articles which advocate prostate massage as a treatment for chronic prostatitis, infertility, and benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH).
The male prostate gland is a complex structure of tiny acini, or sacs, in which bacteria can grow. Once they infest there, the swelling and inflammation caused by the infection closes off the sac, causing it not to "rid" certain harmful bacteria, and protecting the bacteria inside from antibiotics and your body's own immune cells. As more and more acini get closed off, your prostate begins to inflame and interferes with your other normal urinary and sexual functions.
In the far east, prostate massage has been included in traditional oriental medicine for centuries. In traditional Japanese families, wives often perform prostate massage to promote their partners' health. In general, Asian men tend to have lower rates of prostate enlargement and cancer than their American (counterparts).
Historically, prostate massage has been used for centuries as a part of Oriental & Ayurvedic holistic health practice. Prostate massage is once again becoming more widely recommended as researchers discover that prostate massage complements and increases the effectiveness of antibiotics, antimicrobials or herbal remedies by facilitating circulation to the prostate gland. In addition, many find that prostate massage itself is successful where other remedies have failed.
Prostate and Surrounding Tissue Massage
Medical literature contains many reports of temporary and permanent softening and shrinking of enlarged prostates as a result of digital massage. There is specific mention of improved urinary, stream, reduction of the hesitation associated with prostate infection, a return to a more normal prostate size and shape, and remission or reduction of tumor size.
Roy Dittman, O.M.D., of Santa Monica, California, is using and teaching prostate massage. Dr. Dittman points out that most prostates (and bladders) are choked off to some degree by surrounding tight muscles and tissues-primarily the abductors, oblique's, and psoaz. The pliability, and normal pulsation a healthy, prostate needs can be restricted by the tightness of the surrounding muscles and tissues. If muscles are tight, the prostate doesn't expand and contract with each breath, and doesn't get the blood and oxygen it needs to remain healthy.
This tightness is quite easy to release by external and internal massage. Internal prostate massage is an expansion of the digital rectal examination (DRE) that the doctor performs during a prostate examination. Pressed up against the wall of the rectum, the prostate can be felt and manipulated by a lubricated finger inserted into the rectum. An enlarged prostate can be gently massaged by a physician or healer to induce the prostate to soften and shrink. A loving partner can also perform prostate massage. The prostate and surrounding tissue soften dramatically with even occasional massage, while the process becomes more and more comfortable after an initial period of discomfort. Internal prostate massage is often applied by physicians when patients complain about urinary problems or that their bladder never feels completely empty.
It may be best to be massaged by a professional first. However, if your lover is willing, they can quickly learn to perform the massage. Here's how it's done. Insert a lubricated index finger into the anus, and then gently massage around the chestnut-sized and -shaped prostate. Gradually increase the finger pressure, until firm. Expand the massage to the surrounding muscles on both sides, changing hands and position as necessary. These muscles, which may be sore and hard at first, will release and soften dramatically with continued massage. Massage of the prostate and surrounding muscles may be uncomfortable or painful at first. Tolerate as much as you can at each session. You may, yell and scream a lot; that's fine, for it helps to release stuck emotions. You will be surprised at how great you feel as you release these areas. Prostate massage feels better when you are somewhat erect and excited, and it will produce a very euphoric ejaculation if done during a release.
A single massage can produce dramatic progress, freeing the gland and surrounding tissues, increasing the flow of blood and energy to the prostate, and releasing the energy that has been trapped in this sensitive area. This new found physical openness allows more blood and oxygen to the area, creating healing and general softness of the prostate. It will also enhance your lovemaking.
Caution: If you have a prostate infection or cancer, prostate massage, in theory, may cause the offending "germs'' to spread - and the massage may be quite painful if your prostate is inflamed. Our experience, however, has been very positive, as are the literature reports of massage during examination.
Although there are reports of men with acute prostatitis experiencing beneficial flushing and dissipation of their pain after having massage performed, medical opinion is generally opposed to prostatic massage in cases of acute prostatitis or cancer. Prostate massage offers great benefits with little risk, but you must make your own decision. (Spinal physiotherapy in the lumbar, lumbosacral, and sacral regions will also indirectly stimulate the prostate, so care should be taken when undergoing these procedures).
Regular sexual activity is also good for the prostate. The rush of blood and energy, as well as the prostate's pulsations during ejaculation, help the gland to maintain its muscular strength and freedom, and also act to cleanse the organ. Regular but not too frequent ejaculation also helps to release the emotional blockages that cause hardness and tightening of the prostate and surrounding tissues. In general, massage, visualization, lovemaking, and stretching increase blood flow in the area, which is beneficial.
In addition to increasing blood and energy flow, bodywork also relaxes the surrounding muscles. Once these muscles are loosened up, an enlarged prostate usually returns to normal size and shape in just a few minutes. Men over the age of 40 tend to have tight muscles, especially in the groin and legs.
With the muscles relaxed, an enlarged and lopsided prostate quickly returns to its normal size, texture, and shape in anywhere from one to a few sessions. This bodywork can be uncomfortable and painful at first, but the results are dramatic: many men whose prostates remained enlarged despite powerful drugs have experienced quick and permanent healing. Just a few minutes of massage, which costs far less than drugs or surgery, can work wonders.
So Why Is Prostate Massage So Pleasurable?
Anal sensitivity – together with the genital region, the anus is interlinked with millions of highly sensitive nerve endings. All these can yield satisfying sensations.
The hidden/unseen penis – Nearly a third of the penis lies buried within the body. It's the base of the "hidden" penis that can be pressured in the same way as the prostate. Stimulating all three – that is, in combination with genital stimulation, can yield awesome effects.
Psychological highs – Physiological stimulation can't compare with the mental high achieved from prostate massages. The thought of men placing themselves in such vulnerable positions can lead to a powerful psychological rush.
Ejaculations reflex sensation – A host of sensations can be generated from rubbing, pressing or stroking the prostate gland via the rectal wall. The most intense of these sensations can be likened to what is normally felt while in the midst of ejaculation, when the prostate starts pumping out semen.
External and internal prostate massage have been utilized for centuries as part of holistic oriental health practices. Today, it is fast becoming widely recommended, as prostate massage has been discovered to complement and enhance the effectiveness of antimicrobial, antibiotic and herbal remedies by facilitating prostate gland circulation.
