Pelvic Floor Massage
You sometimes hear talk about training pelvic floor muscles through pelvic floor exercises. An overactive pelvic floor , in which the pelvic floor muscles are unconsciously tightened, can be one of the reasons for doing such exercises. A pelvic floor massage is ideal to help relax the pelvic floor, even in case of pain.
Some examples of complaints that can occur with an overactive pelvic floor:
Pain during intercourse
Problems with urination (urine leakage, difficulty starting, straining, interrupted flow, low frequency, high frequency but small urine)
Problems with defecation (constipation, diarrhea, hemorrhoids)
Recurrent bladder infections
Low back pain or other hip complaints, possibly with radiation
Pain in pelvic floor area, abdomen, back, anus, tailbone, groin
Overactivity is independent of gender and age. In addition to women, it can also affect men and children. Young and middle-aged women are most likely to experience a strained pelvic floor. When girls or women have a negative self-image , especially about the lower body, this can result in an overactive pelvic floor. Women who have had bad sexual experiences also often experience overactivity of the pelvic floor muscles. It can also be a response to pain , for example with vaginal infection or with complications after surgery. In addition, (long-term) psychological stress can also occurbe a cause, but equally the cause of an overactive pelvic floor may be unclear.
What is the difference with pelvic physiotherapy?
Pelvic floor therapy is based on massages, exercises, advice and intensive guidance. A pelvic floor treatment as part of an energetic or tantra massage only focuses on gentle but deep massaging of the tissues in the pelvic region, but with the added aspect of energy , which can have very profound effects.
A lot of tension is often held in the pelvic region. When massaging the hips, the groin, the area around the perineum, pelvis and pubic bone , a lot of that tension can be released. In this way the energy can flow more freely again .
The pelvic floor massage can be given as a stand-alone massage, but is also the ideal preparation for the sexual healing process via Tantric or yoni massage.
