Theracane use

I started by using my index finger a couple years ago. Then a PT for a year. She had to take time off because she had a baby so I was left with my index finger or Theracane. Index finger is easier to work with and provides subtle pressure. But I couldn't get as far in as my PT could nor could I gene...

Bike seats

I also used to do a ton of biking. Mostly mountain biking. Just recently I fixed my old Canondale full suspension up. I looked at that seat and a bunch others that were called "hornless" bike seats. The problem I found is that you lose a lot of stability without having a horn to grip between your le...

Hems

I have had hems before from CPPS. But they always led to bleeding while defacating. They'd just heal up over time. During the last pt session I noticed some blood on the sheets after but have not had any bleeding since. Strange, I thought for sure she found a hemroid and accidentally broke it open. ...

knife feeling

Funny you wrote it felt like a knife. I have been saying that for the last 3 years but I just wrote a post minutes before I read your post describing that exact feeling from a strong pt treatment yesterday. I remember the first time my CPPS hit me. About 4 years ago I came back from a snowboard trip...

rectal pain after internal treatment

I have been receiving pt for the last year and pretty much exclusively worked on the external trigger points (abs, deep navel, inside of thighs) a lot of which most did not refer pain (when worked by pt) to the perineum and anus (my two biggest problems) but did seem to greatly lessen the pain felt ...

Yes but...

I was curious about this product because it would enable me to not use any of my own strength to massage the perineum. When I use the Theracane or finger while laying down, the effect is good but would be better if I didn't need to tense my other muscles (arms, fingers, etc.) to massage the points. ...

Tai Chi and Theracane

Yup, I still do Tai Chi. I'm really into it as well as Chi Gung (Qi Gong). Chi Gung is a Chinese healing practice sort of like moving meditation. I find it easier than sitting meditation. If anyone is interested I can elaborate. I also got certified in Reiki but don't find it as immediately effectiv...

Has anyone used the "prostate cradle"

I just learned about this. May help massage perineum muscles. Have any of you tried this? What do you think (as a supplement to internal/external pt once a week)?

Thanks

Tai Chi

Very interesting that you heard this from a Tai Chi instructor. I used to take Yang Tai Chi and now primarally focus on Bagua and Chi Gung but still a little Tai Chi and Xing Yi. I read what he told you in many of my Chi Gung books. That is excellent that he came right out and said that to you. Wish...

nerve structure

It's interesting that one of the posts mentions a nerve structure to the left of the navel. That is exactly where my PT is working the most on my stomach. It felt like there was a hard mass under the skin but after a few PT sessions it is much better. It used to hurt a lot to squeeze the skin around...

Me too

I guess I'm the guy that wrote that original post since you emailed me. Yup, that is exactly my problem too. I was a very skinny guy in high school but always had a bit of a pot belly due to the way my organs sat and unusually large abs for a thin guy. So I always sucked it in. I also became a non c...

Norton PT

I go to Jessica Mckinney in Norton MA. I'd say it is about 30 minutes from the city but maybe a bit longer. Here is the site http://www.marathonphysicaltherapy.com/ . She checks her email often so feel free to write. The only major problem is that she has about a 3 month waiting list. Yeah the probl...

bodybuilding

I was a bodybuilder for 5 or so years. Very serious about training a lot but also very knowledgeable about overtraining. So I wouldn't say I was extreme with my time commitment to training but I did lift fairly heavy when I did train. My PT and I think that heavy squats or leg presses had a signific...

Martial Art Recomendations

First, it is extremely important to focus on your breathing while doing Chi Gung. Circulation of the Chi is the main purpose. It heals you and gives you power for martial arts. I'd recomend looking for a better book that goes into many styles of Chi Gung (Qi Gong). I recomend this book http://www.am...

The most important stretch that has made me feel better

I have had CPPS for about 2 years now. You can search for my first post to read about it. My first plan of battle was to stretch out my body as thoroughly as possible while limiting my ejaculation. It certainly helped in as little as a couple months but as I felt better I got lazy. It always seems t...
