According to Illinois law, massage therapists are allowed to perform breast and external pelvic work if we have informed consent, there is a therapeutic purpose for doing so, and that we have the appropriate knowledge/training for doing so. I do and have helped men and women with a broad range of problems in the following areas:
- Pelvic Floor: At the moment, I do not perform anything specifically for the genitals but I do know how to thoroughly work everything around them. In doing so, I have a success helping people with incontinence issues (pressure leakage and frequency related), inflamed prostates, some prolapsing in women, constipation, and severity of menstrual pain/cramps. I, also, have had a lot of positive feedback regarding how my pelvic work has improved virility, sexual gratification, and quality of orgasms in both sexes (mostly admitted to by the ladies, of course). And, there is one instance that I know of where a female client, who had difficulty getting pregnant before finding me, was able to conceive afterward. It is hard to know if that was my doing though.
- Breast Health: At first, I began with helping women with scar tissue release for augmentations and full breast reconstructions, implant repositioning, and other complications from surgery. Then, it grew into working with tight tissue in the breasts and chest that needs to be addressed to fully address breathing problems, headaches, and bad posture. Now, I am also performing myofascial release to dissolve cysts and promote better circulation from wearing bras. I, also, can teach women some of what I know so that they can perform preventive care on themselves.
