Prostate Massage – How Much is Enough? How Much is Too Much?
Prostate massage is without a doubt one of the most powerful tools for healing a sick and painful prostate. It's not because of the massage itself. It is because of what the massage does for your body.
Prostate massage better enables the prostate gland to heal itself.
There are no drugs, nor will there ever be any, that can compare with what Mother Nature can do to heal your body.
What some correct massage does is bring more fresh new blood to your sick tired aching prostate. It is the increased supply of fresh healthy blood that enables your body to clean and heal itself.
Where 99% Of Prostate Problems Come From
Most problems of the prostate gland come from just four sources:
1) Toxic accumulation
2) Lack of oxygen and nutrients
3) Inadequate nutrition
4) Too much sex
Correct prostate massage will take care of the first two. Moderation (and even an extended period of rest) will take care of the third. Learning what to feed your body will cover the fourth.
With this knowledge and use of these tools you can handle over 99% of all prostate problems. Even the most long term, chronic, and terrible ones.
How Much Prostate Massage Is Enough?
How much should you massage your prostate? That answer is different for each individual. It depends on the condition of your prostate and what the problem or problems are.
But, consider prostate massage just like an exercise program.
If your body is sick, weak, and out of shape generally, you can not do too much exercise. The same will be true for your prostate gland.
And if your prostate is already in pain, sick and weak you will not want to make it worse.
When you first begin, it is very important to ALWAYS be very gentle. You're not usually going to fix a prostate problem in just one day. Neither are you going to become a Mr. America body builder after just one day in the gym. Make sense?
Persistence Is Key
Persistence is a key factor with prostate massage. Slow and sure like the tortoise will actually be your quickest way to success.
When a man does too much massage or massages too hard, it can cause some real pain the following day or two and the man often gives up after that.
This is just like most people who buy gym memberships. Did you know that of all the people who buy lifetime gym memberships, most people will use that gym just 4 times. Just 4! Then they give up and never return.
Why? Because they do too much in the beginning. All their muscles hurt after that. They feel crappy and irritable. So they quit! It all went wrong because they did too much too soon.
Do not let that happen to you with your prostate massage program.
Be gentle. Especially during the first massages.
It's much better to feel like you're not doing enough than to feel like you did too much.
After the first internal prostate massage, wait a few days before doing another one. If you are starting with the external prostate massage it can be done every day.
But, the internal prostate massage is usually much more intense. You are contacting the prostate directly. You're not massaging through a layer of muscle and fat with this massage.
You can compare this to weight lifting and walking. Walking you can do every day. But, weight lifting is most effective when done just 2 or 3 times a week. This is because weight lifting is much more intense. The body needs more time to rest, clean up and recover from it.
How Much Massage Is Too Much?
I'm sure by now you're probably getting the idea. Any amount that causes pain is too much.
In the beginning there will usually be some normal tenderness. And the next day or two may easily result in some added soreness. This is a natural phenomenon. During your first few massages you're going to be releasing a lot of accumulated toxins. These toxins have been accumulating for years!
When they are stirred up (and they start coming out ot the prostate tissues) they can irritate not only your prostate gland, but your whole prostate area. This is what causes the normal soreness on following days.
Then the blood will slowly flush them away.
The same thing can happen if you have not massaged your prostate for a long time.
Other than that, if you are experiencing pain during your massage you are either being aggressive or you are massaging for too long a period of time. Or both.
Anytime you feel pain or serious discomfort: STOP what you are doing immediately! Then continue more gentle or stop all together. Come back to it another day.
PAIN means you are doing too much, or pushing too hard, or both.
Let Your Body Be Your Guide
After you have been doing prostate massage for a number of weeks, you'll learn how much feels good and what is uncomfortable. Stay with what feels good. Once you are accredited to them, the massages should actually be very refreshing. Just like exercising.
Never go past the point of comfort. That's your best guide. It will be different from man to man. So make progress slowly and find what is best for you.
If Your Prostate Hurts Before You Even Start Massaging
If you are already suffering from a lot of prostate pain, you may not be able to do the internal prostate massage at first. In fact using the internal massage in this circumstance could be a very bad idea.
In this case, the vibrating massage and sitz bath are the best choices.
Once you start feeling better, you can progress to the external prostate massages.
The internal massage (because of the direct contact) is the strongest and fastest acting. But, it is not something that should be used if you have a poor condition or are in a lot of pain to begin with.
As you progress and your pain decreases, the internal prostate massage can be tried.
Always Be Safe
Always consult your doctor first. Rarely, a medical condition may exist that could make the internal massage dangerous. This usually occurs only in men of advanced age. Certain types of hemorrhoids, polyps, fissures, colon disease, certain prostate cancers, and just plain old age may present a problem where the internal massage could be dangerous.
If that is the case, you can still build health and find a tremendous amount of relief with gentle external massages and peripheral massages.
Always remember: It is always wise to check with your doctor first. Especially if you have any doubts about your condition. This will enable you to proceed with the correct type of massage with complete confidence.
Doing The Correct Amount
Prostate massage is not a competition. Neither is it a test of endurance.
The whole idea with massage is to get more fresh blood in and toxins out. That's it! After that the body does everything else on it's own.
So start slowly. Do not cause yourself pain. Be regular with your practice.
When your prostate regains health: your pain disappears, you are peeing normally again, and you'll notice your whole life becomes a happier one! Your entire spirit and zest for life will improve.
That's what correct prostate massage can help over 98% of men with prostate problems accomplish.
Be Well …
