Stainless Steel Vaginal Barbell for Pelvic Floor Strengthening and Trigger Point Massage
The Kegel8 Barbell Pelvic Floor Exerciser is a high-quality, medical-grade stainless steel pelvic floor exerciser, that uses weight to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. As well as pelvic floor strengthening it can be used for trigger point massage and myofascial release for pelvic pain.
A strong and healthy pelvic floor is vital for retaining intimate sensation during sexual activity and preventing bowel and bladder incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. So many of us don't investigate or understand the importance of a strong pelvic floor until something goes wrong or changes, perhaps after childbirth or menopause. If for whatever reason, you have now been made to sit up and pay attention to your pelvic floor, the Kegel8 Barbell Pelvic Floor Exerciser can help you.
This weighted pelvic floor strengthening device can be sterilised in boiling water or using a suitable spray like the Kegel8 Clean. Cleaners and lubricants will not compromise or damage its surface and it will last forever due to its stainless-steel material; it is also environmentally friendly, being 100% recyclable. The non-porous surface will not harbour germs or bacteria and its non-porous surface could not be easier to clean and keep clean; this makes it a completely safe and body-friendly pelvic floor exercising device.
How Do Weighted Pelvic Floor Exercise Devices Work?
You have several muscles that make up the pelvic floor, the pubococcygeus muscle being the most important as this muscle is responsible for bladder control and intimate sensation. It attaches to the front of the pubic bone and stretches underneath your girdle around to the anus. This muscle is also responsible for holding your pelvic organs in place. A severe weakening of the pubococcygeus muscle results in pelvic organ prolapse, whereby some or all of the pelvic organs (the bladder, uterus, vagina, small bowel or rectum) protrude out of the vaginal entrance.
When you contract the pubococcygeus muscle it should be felt in the clitoris, vagina, and anus. If you can't feel this, or the feeling is weak, you should start pelvic floor exercises straight away to prevent your weak pelvic floor from worsening. To use the Kegel8 Barbell Pelvic Floor Exerciser, simply insert the device as deep as is comfortable into the vagina and practice keeping it there for as long as is comfortably possible. You will need to engage the intimate muscles to hold it in place, this gives the pubococcygeus muscle a fantastic and simple workout you can do any time of the day or night, in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
The top half is hourglass-shaped to provide some help in keeping it in place, whilst the other half is straight with just a small bulb at the end for a more challenging workout.
Using the Vaginal Barbell for Relief of a Tight and Painful Pelvic Floor
Hypertonic pelvic floor (also known simply as a tight pelvic floor) can manifest itself for many reasons and cause constipation, painful sex, urinary urgency, and pelvic pain. There are various factors that can lead to a tight pelvic floor, such as:
- Pelvic surgery: Scar tissue can restrict the internal movement and natural flex of the muscles
- Over-exercising the pelvic muscles: Weight lifters for example who regularly and excessively tense the pelvic muscles when lifting
- Treatment for pelvic cancers: Hardening of scar tissue can lead to tightening in the pelvic floor
- Stress, anxiety, and fear: The body's natural response to each of these emotions is to tuck the tailbone under which shortens the pubococcygeus muscle
- History of holding on to the bladder or bowels: Often due to fear or discomfort using public toilets, the act of holding on means the pelvic floor muscles are tightening to prevent the loss of control
Using the Kegel8 Barbell Pelvic Floor Exerciser, you can easily locate tension points and release the muscles by way of myofascial release in the comfort of your own home.
The vaginal barbell is 16.5cm in length which means it is long enough to reach trigger points through application both inside and outside of the vagina - on the perineum, for example. Its solid structure means it will never bend or flex, once you have found the trigger point you need to massage you can apply any level of pressure needed to help you find relief.
The option to warm or cool the device is an added benefit. Warmth helps to relax the pelvic floor muscles and improve circulation, whilst cooling can help with discomfort caused by haemorrhoids or vaginal atrophy. Pelvic pain massage points are located just inside the vagina and are easily reached by the Kegel8 Barbell Pelvic Floor Exerciser.
