Now that you’ve worked out, it’s time to let others work on you: massaging your body, your prostate, and surrounding areas to increase blood flow, soften and shrink the gland, and relax the surrounding muscles.

The blood that carries oxygen to every cell of the body is vital to physical health, abundance, and spirituality. Only with an abundant supply of oxygen can each cell breathe and pulsate with energy, and process out the toxins and waste, while continually renewing itself. This is especially true of the prostate. Dependent on some of the tiniest blood passages in the body, for its blood and oxygen, it relies on a steady flow of both. When the flow is crimped or interrupted, even briefly, the prostate becomes a target for infection, enlargement, or cancer.

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. Yet the medical establishment continues to ignore the benefits of prostate massage: I have been unable to find any discussion in the literature about prostate massage as a healing or treatment modality, though it has been a tantric practice for at least 8,000 years.

That hasn’t stopped practitioners such as Roy Dittman, O.M.D., of Santa Monica, California, from 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, obliques, 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. Self-massage your prostate and surrounding areas by lying on your back with your legs extended. Now bend your knees and hips, drawing your knees up to your chest. Then spread your knees apart and press the soles of your feet together firmly. Keep your soles pressed together as you extend your legs to the floor. Repeat this up-and-down motion 6 to 12 times daily while you are massaging the prostate (the firm lump just above the anus) and perineum.

External prostate massage is a good start, but it’s more effective when accompanied by 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 gloved, 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. (This has been a part of tantric practice for thousands of years.) 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, she 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 thrilling ejaculation if it’s done during lovemaking.

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 newfound 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. I favor massage, seeing 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.

Working with structural integration bodyworker Deed Preston of Santa Monica, California, I learned that these muscles can be “released” through internal and external massage. 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.
