Unlocking the Secrets of Pelvic Floor Therapy
Are you familiar with the pelvic wand? This amazing tool can be a game-changer in your journey towards pelvic health. While it may seem intimidating at first, it doesn’t have to be. In this article, we will explore what a pelvic wand is, what it is used for, and how you can incorporate it into your self-care routine.
What is a Pelvic Wand Used For?
A pelvic wand is specifically designed to target trigger points in your pelvic floor muscles. These muscles, located deep in your pelvis, play a crucial role in your overall well-being. However, accessing and treating these trigger points can be challenging without the right tools. Fortunately, a pelvic wand, such as the Intimate Rose Pelvic Wand, can provide the solution you need.
Why Choose a Pelvic Wand over Alternatives?
You may be wondering if you can achieve similar results using tampons or dilators. The truth is, tampons are not long or firm enough, while dilators are straight and don’t effectively reach the target treatment point. A pelvic wand, on the other hand, offers the length, shape, and firmness necessary to effectively target trigger points and provide relief.
Using a Pelvic Wand in 5 Easy Steps
If you decide to incorporate a pelvic wand into your self-care routine, follow these five easy steps:
- Seek guidance from a pelvic floor physical therapist or consider using a comprehensive instructional series, such as my Signature Pelvic Floored Series or Self Pelvic Floor Muscle Exam, to learn how to accurately assess your pelvic floor muscles and determine which areas require treatment priority. It’s important to understand which areas can benefit from gentle pressure and which areas should be avoided due to the proximity of sensitive nerves.
- Create a comfortable setup for your pelvic wand session. For optimal results, a semi-reclined position with your knees bent and supported by pillows works best. Ensure a comfortable temperature and minimize interruptions to allow complete focus on your assessment and treatment. Individuals with penises can opt for a sidelying position in bed with pillows between their knees.
- Begin by performing a self-digital muscle check using the Pelvic Clock technique. This will give you an understanding of your pelvic floor muscles’ status before using the wand.
- Insert the pelvic wand as instructed and apply gentle pressure to the targeted trigger points identified during your self-exam or by your pelvic therapist. Depending on the trigger point, 3-5 minutes of gentle pressure, with or without nerve glides, may be recommended. Additionally, practicing pelvic floor muscle contractions (up, relax, down, relax) can enhance the treatment.
- After the treatment, repeat the self-pelvic clock assessment. You should experience less pain and increased symmetry, indicating progress.
Addressing Common Questions About Pelvic Wands
Is it a Vibrator?
No, a pelvic wand is not a vibrator. It is a medical device specifically designed to treat painful or dysfunctional trigger points. Its primary purpose is to improve tissue health, increase blood flow, reduce pain, and enhance strength. However, Intimate Rose does offer a vibrating option that can benefit stiff tissues and also be used for external stimulation during intimate play.
How Do You Know if You Are Deep Enough?
Your pelvic floor therapist will guide you on how to reach the targeted trigger points. Generally, the pelvic floor muscles run along the inside of the pelvic ring. The superficial muscles, approximately 1cm thick, surround the vaginal and rectal openings. Treating the deeper muscles is made easier with the curved design of a pelvic wand. Your therapist’s clinic, Intimate Rose videos, or my website can provide additional guidance and resources.
