Three Natural Ways to Enlarge Your Penis – Indonesian Style


China and India may be known for their great methods to improve the length and girth of the male vital organ, but how about the other parts of the world? Surely, other countries also have their own distinct methods to enlarge one’s penis size naturally. One country that has a unique way to do this is Indonesia. This country has distinguished methods that are hard to find in other places. Here are a few of methods used by Indonesians to enhance male vital organs.

1. Leech Oil

The leech (Hirudo medicinalis) is one nasty animal. It sticks its fang-like sucker to your skin and feeds on your blood until it is finally full. While sucking, leeches produces hirudin, a protein that prevents your blood from coagulating. This blood-sucking animal turns out to have a useful advantage towards the human body. In Indian Ayurvedic and Ancient Greek literature, the anticoagulant enzyme found in these hermaphrodite animals was used for bloodletting therapy to balance the four humors in the body (blood, phlegm, black, and yellow), thus promoting health. Meanwhile in Indonesia, especially in Java, leech oil is commonly used for enlarging the size of a male vital organ. It is believed that massaging your penis using warm leech oil for around 10 minutes daily will increase penis size permanently. Leech oil is made by cooking the leech and other herbs inside fresh green coconuts that are boiled over charcoals. While there are many types of leeches (most of them don’t feed on human’s blood, surprisingly), similar to Greek and Indian therapy, the Javanese only use the Hirudo medicinalis over other species.

2. Daun Bungkus Papua

Daun Bungkus Papua (meaning “Papuan wrapping leaf”) is a plant indigenous to Papua, an Indonesian province at the border between Indonesia and its neighboring country Papua New Guinea. The leaves contain trachoma, which can trigger itching of the skin during contact. Wrapping the penis with the leaf is believed to be able to increase its length and girth in significant amounts and in a relatively short time. No massage or additional apparatus is required. The method of this treatment is easy. Make a thin film of coconut oil on the leaf’s surface, wrap the penis with the leaf and cover it with a bandage. To avoid irritation, the bandage should be immediately removed if any hotness or itchiness occurs. The treatment should not be done every day. Do this once every two days at the most to give the penis chance to adjust to the change. With regular practice, Daun Bungkus Papua produces a larger penis, but it will also make the penile skin turn darker. In Indonesia itself, there have been no medical studies to prove the property of the leaf. Even experts are having problems to determine its Latin name. If not used carefully, Daun Bungkus Papua can irritate and trigger an infection of the penis.

2. Pasak Bumi (Eurycoma longifolia)

Eurycoma longifolia has different names in different parts of the country including bidara laut, babi kurus, and tongkat ali. It is a flowering plant indigenous to South East Asia, especially Indonesia and Malaysia. Pasak Bumi is a small evergreen tree that can grow up to 15 m (50 feet) in height. All parts of the plant taste bitter but have great medicinal properties. Although it functions as an anti-malarial and anti-diabetic herb as well, pasak bumi is mostly famous for its ability to enhance libido and enlarge the male vital organ. The plant’s root is used in traditional herbal supplements to increase testosterone levels in men. The herb contains ethalonic essence, which improves the work of chorionic gonadotropin, which in turn helps increasing testosterone levels. Higher testosterone in the male body triggers an increase of muscle mass, stronger bones, better sexual performance, lesser body fat, increased body metabolism, lessened stress, and improved brain function and memory.

Pregnancy and Medical Spas – The Best Treatments


Pregnancy is the perfect time to relax and unwind, and many expectant moms take advantage of this special point in their lives to give themselves luxurious pampering treats. But while the temptation may be to indulge yourself as much as possible with massages, facials and other spa treatments, make sure you only go for ones that are particularly recommended for pregnant women.

Your skin may be a lot more sensitive when pregnant, and you may be more sensitive to pain as well. Having your legs waxed, for example, may sound like a great idea – but turn out to be excruciatingly painful, even though it’s been relatively painless the last 10 times you’ve had it done.

The vast majority of pregnant women suffer from pregnancy-related physical complaints, such as backache, muscle tension, bloating and even foot cramps. While there are numerous medical spa treatments out there which can relieve such problems, some are not recommended for moms-to-be, and can even be downright dangerous to the unborn child.

If you feel like you could benefit from a spot of pregnancy pampering, don’t leave your health, and that of your baby’s, to chance. While the vast majority of medical spas are aware of what’s safe for expectant mothers, not all are. Remember, when it comes down to brass tacks, the responsibility for playing it safe is in your hands.

Steer Straight Ahead

Here is a list of treatments suitable for pregnant women:

* Facials. Facials that are not too invasive or don’t use harsh chemicals or peels are considered safe. Try an Elemis Spa facial or or one from your favorite skincare specialist, such as Decleor or Clarins. Products that are natural and organic without any strong chemicals are the best if you’re pregnant.

* Massages. Most massages are good for pregnancy, although some women may find it too uncomfortable to lie on their back. See if you can find a med spa that has a special massage table that has a bump cut out to fit your own bump! Be aware, however, that some massage oils are not recommended for use during pregnancy, including juniper, clary sage and even, surprisingly, peppermint.

* Hair removal involving waxing. You might find this more painful than normal as most women have an increased sensitivity to pain when pregnant (see below). But leg waxing, underarm waxing and even getting rid of that bristly bikini line is considered fine during pregnancy. You wouldn’t want your obstetrician to see you with hairy legs, would you? And try doing it yourself in your eighth month…

* Pedicure or manicure. A basic mani or pedi is fine. Some people, however, believe that having artificial nails or extensions can be dangerous to the unborn child because of the chemicals used.

* Reflexology. This form of foot massage can be of great relief to some women, but it’s important to let your reflexologist know you’re pregnant. Rule of thumb is not to have treatments during the first trimester, or if you have placenta previa (low-lying placenta) or hydroaminos, or an excess of amniotic fluid after 32 weeks’ gestation. Also not good for women at a risk of deep-vein thrombosis or pre-eclampsia, or those who have gone into pre-term labor.

* Acupuncture. This ancient needle art is widely used to treat morning sickness and make expectant mothers feel more comfortable overall. It is considered safe throughout the three trimesters but you should let your acupuncturist know you are pregnant nonetheless. Some acupuncturists like to wait past the first six weeks.

Steer Clear

Here are treatments NOT suitable for pregnant women:

* Hair removal involving bleaches or other kinds of hair removing cream. Not recommended as the chemicals can be absorbed into your body.

* Electrolysis. While most practitioners agree it’s safe to have this hair removal procedure carried out on your face during pregnancy, avoid having it done on your body – and especially the nipple area during the last few weeks! Remember, also, that you may have excess hair growth during pregnancy that will go away once the baby is born.

* Chemical peels and dermabrasion. It’s assumed that the strong chemicals used can enter your bloodstream, and cause harm to the unborn child.

* Tooth whitening/permanent make-up application. Nobody knows whether these are completely safe or not as not enough research has been carried out, so it’s best to avoid them.

* Saunas, steam rooms and very hot Jacuzzis. Stay away from the heat when you’re pregnant – these types of spa treatments may sound enticing but they’re thought to be potentially harmful to your unborn child, as they can raise your body temperature to dangerously high levels. Ditto for hot mud or seaweed wraps etc.

* Treatments involving any type of injections, such as dermal fillers etc. This are dangerous as there is a chance the substance can actually reach – and harm – the fetus.

* Laser treatments. Stay away from lasers while pregnant – just in case. Most spas that offer laser therapy of any kind do not accept pregnant women anyway.

* Tanning beds. Apart fro the risk of getting overheated; a melanoma can spread to the placenta, and thus affect your unborn child.

* Tattooing. As your skin will change during your pregnancy, once you’ve delivered you might not recognize the tattoo you got while pregnant! Also, the risk of unsterilized needles makes this a no-no.

* Hair dyes or chemical straightening techniques etc. Best to wait until you’ve given birth.

Top Tips

* Keep in mind that your skin may be a lot more sensitive when pregnant, and you may be more sensitive to pain as well. Having your legs waxed, for example, may sound like a great idea – but turn out to be excruciatingly painful, even though it’s been relatively painless the last 10 times you’ve had it done.

* Many spas choose to play it safe when catering to pregnant women. Some suggest that women don’t have treatments until they are at least in their 12th week of pregnancy, and others restrict treatments to women who are more than 32 weeks’ pregnant. If you need a bit of pampering in your first trimester, opt for a simple manicure or facial and have the massage later.

* If it’s not obvious you’re pregnant, tell your practitioner, instructor or beauty therapist. It’s better that they may the decision about what is safe for you, as they know everything that is involved within a specific treatment or procedure.

Being pregnant is a fantastic time to concentrate on yourself and your changing body. It’s also a great time to indulge in pampering treatments, especially as you won’t have time to take advantage of a quiet, peaceful spa once little Junior makes his or her entrance into the world, kicking and screaming his or her little head off. So enjoy it while you can – but play it safe!

Hair Loss: Five Best Balding Myths


Yes, you are a product of your parent’s genes, and male pattern balding, or androgenic alopecia, is inherited.

Biology does not mean destiny these days and options are available for hair restoration products such as medical supplements – Minoxidil or Propecia; wigs and hair pieces and procedures such as hair transplants.

Unless you can change your parents, there is not much you can do about your genetic makeup. To set the record straight, here are 5 of the best balding myths, explaining causes for baldness.

If I massage my scalp, it may prevent hair loss.

The benefits of scalp massage have roots (pun intended) going back 5,000 years to Indian ayurvedic medicine.

Benefits include relieving head and neck tension and may increase the production of endorphins and serotonin, resulting in a feeling of well-being.

While scalp massage certainly feels good and is relaxing, there is no evidence it can prevent hair loss. However, there is no downside to massaging your scalp, so feel free to massage away.

Using hair care products can cause your hair to fall out or, conversely can stop hair loss.

Of course, over-processing with chemical straighteners, bleach or relaxers or overuse of flat irons can cause permanent damage and hair loss.

The good news is that both Minoxidil and Propecia have a good track record with preventing further hair loss and in some cases re-growing hair. Minoxidil, a topical ointment approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can be purchased over the counter.

Propecia is available in pill form to men by prescription and should not be used or handled by women, as it has been known to cause birth defects.

If a man’s father has a full head of hair, then he will have the same.

Only if you are lucky, since scientists now believe hair destiny is a combination of genetic makeup from both parents.

Over-thinking or psychological problems can cause baldness.

Although the popular image in the media of bald men as more intellectual, (think: egghead) has no basis in fact, the stereotype persists.

Unless you suffer from Trichotillomania (compulsive hair plucking) – a rare, obsessive compulsive condition where a person plucks out their own hair, most psychological problems do not cause baldness. Trichotillomania affects 4% of the population, mostly women.

Your mother carries the balding gene from her father.

This may be part of the story. Researchers still don’t completely understand what causes male pattern balding. The sex chromosomes, X and or Y, control whether we develop as a male or female. Men have an X and a Y, women have two Xs.

The balding gene is carried on your X chromosome. A man gets one X chromosome from his mother, and a Y from his father.

Conversely, a woman gets one X from her mother and one X from her father; so look at your mother’s dad and see if he’s bald. If so, you have a 50% chance of getting the same bald gene.

However, scientists now believe that there may be several genes causing male pattern baldness but until now, no one has identified those other genes.

A new study, published this year in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, by George Cotsarelis, MD, Chair of the Department of Dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, has found that stem cells play a role in explaining what happens in a bald scalp.

He found that balding may arise from a problem with stem-cell activation rather than the numbers of stem cells in follicles.

Good news – these results may assist in developing future cell-based treatments for male pattern balding.

Knots in Your Back and Arm Pain Can Be Caused by the Same Muscles That Cause Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


Sometimes numbness and pain in a hand and arm is due to an accident.  The pain may have come on suddenly rather than gradually like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Repetitive Stress Injury.  Regardless of the cause, pain and numbness in your hand and arm can respond to the same treatments because the same muscles are probably involved.

1.  There is a muscle on each side of your neck that causes knots in the back and pain in the hand and arm.  This is very often an overlooked cause of hand and pain symptoms.  Especially if you have “knots” in your back between the spine and shoulder blade OR if you aren’t responding to typical medical treatment, this may be the cause of your pain.

2.  If it’s hard to lift your arm, the deltoid, or cap, muscle on the outer side of your arm might be involved because that muscle can prevent the ability to lift if it’s unhappy.

3.  I would suggest that ALL of the muscles around your upper body, ribs, chest, back, neck and arm are involved because they’re all attached.

Breathing thoughtfully as fully in and out as you can (while you are in the most comfortable position you can get into) will “massage” the muscles around the ribs, inside and out.

Either ice or heat around the back, side, shoulder and chest will help those muscles relax.  Ice might probably be the treatment of choice around your neck.

Massage therapists who are trained to relieve pain by getting to the root cause of the pain can usually get relief for people with hand and arm symptoms.  Manual medicine (massage) actually gets into the muscles to relieve tightness and trigger points.  It’s not just ANY old tight muscle that should be massaged; it’s the muscles that are CAUSING the pain.  There’s a BIG difference.

Physical therapy will work best when all of the muscles are treated (massaged by hand) and “released” manually first and the tissues are normalized. 

Sometimes you can do a lot of massage yourself.  Sometimes a friend or family member will help you or you might see a professional massage therapist.  Tight muscles can be quite tender.  You may say, “That really hurts!” 

But, when your body says it is the right place and pressure you may say, “That really hurts; don’t stop; I can tell that’s a place that’s causing the problems.” 

My expertise is in how the body works and how to get rid of pain.  Because of my background, I am very, very biased about the value of massage.  Very!   I believe in my heart that this type of muscle and soft tissue treatment will give you the most relief and healing.  (Because I have seen it over and over and over.)

How to Increase Penis Size With Your Hands


“It DOUBLED my confidence and self-esteem!” exclaimed a 36-year-old man in an email to me recently. He was referring to the natural techniques on how to increase penis size with your hands. Impotence is becoming alarmingly common in our society today. More and more married men are depressed because they are no longer capable of penile erection.

Some men can maintain erection only for a short time. Usually, whenever a man and woman begins to quarrel and accuse each other of cheating, be rest assured that something is wrong with their sexual life. Many marriages break up because of small penis size and failure to achieve strong erection. For a man, there is nothing as humiliating and depressing as having a small penis or impotence.

The good news for you today is that you can increase penis size with your hands. You will be using your hands to exercise your penis to achieve your desired size gain. The only requirement is the discipline to diligently do all the exercises. They are actually very simple penis exercises anyone can do at home or in the office.

Recent medical clinical trials have tested and proven that penis exercises can practically increase penis length and girth. The same clinical trials also found out that apart from the increase in penis size, you will be able to cure premature ejaculation and keep a stronger and long-lasting erection to the utmost satisfaction of your partner. Just by the appropriate use of your hands in a certain way.

Some of the real benefits of the penis enlargement exercises are increase in your ability to maintain stronger and long-lasting erection every time (making you able to last longer in bed), increase in the amount of semen you produce when ejaculating and improvement in your overall sex control and performance. Best of all your penis will grow bigger and thicker.

I bet you. Your partner will respect and cherish you the more. The usual quarrels over your failing sexual prowess will end with a bigger and thicker penis.

This is how to increase penis size with your hands. Ready? Go!

The techniques below will show you briefly how to get started with increasing penis size with your hands:

• Jelqing Technique

This is the most ancient penis enhancement technique known to man. It involves using your hands to “milk” your penis thereby increasing the amount of blood flow to your penis, while filling the Corpora Cavernosa (the part of your penis that is filled with blood and enlarged during erections). This will make your penis visibly bigger and thicker. If you can perform this exercise regularly, you can permanently increase the size of your penis size very fast.

• Penis Stretching

Here you will be using your hands to stretch your penis without giving you any pain. Once you can stretch the tissues of your penis, the cells will begin to grow thereby increasing the length of your penis.

• Kegel Exercises

These exercises will help you to keep a strong erection throughout and last longer in bed. They are meant to strengthen the pubococcygeus muscle, which is used to delay erections. Once you can successfully train this muscle, you will be able to get multiple orgasms and strengthen your penis to shoot your semen farther into the vagina and accurately control premature ejaculation.

One secret you can do immediately is to use Aloe Vera to eliminate impotence. Aloe Vera is one of the most effective remedies for impotence. Cut the roots of the Aloe Vera into small pieces. Soak 2 handfuls into 3 bottles of gin for 10 days. Then, add 2 bottles of water to dilute and begin to drink 1 shot two times daily. If you take this in the morning, you will notice an improvement in your penile erection by evening of the same day. Try it now for free!

Dietary habits play an important factor to increase penis size and your sexual prowess. Some food promotes penis growth while some weakens it.

Milking the Prostate: The Health Benefits


The prostate can be found at the base of the bladder and it is the size of a walnut. It is located at the exit of the male bladder and is surrounded by urinary passages. It helps control the urination and it secretes a fluid that goes together with the seminal fluid. For the past years, it has been known that there are health benefits of milking the prostate. Regularly emptying and filling of prostatic fluid is very healthy. It is also considered as the male g-spot for it gives quite an intensive feeling when triggered. Being done properly can cause a great deal of orgasm.

What is prostate milking?

Prostate milking is the process of stimulating the prostate gland for either medical or sexual reasons. To make it short, it is a manual expression that causes secretion when a certain force or pressure is applied on the prostate using a finger or an instrument in the rectum.

There are two ways to stimulate the prostate; one is to do it internally and the other is by doing it externally. Among the two the internal massage is said to be more effective. However, the external massage also helps.

The process of milking the prostate is branded as the prostate massage. Prostate massage is said to promote a lifelong prostate health as well as trigger a relaxing and erotic feeling. It is said, by many, that prostate milking cause an increase in their orgasm making it longer and more satisfying. For those who don’t have a sexual partner, this is a good way to have and achieve a satisfying sexual release.

Although the health benefits of milking the prostate is very important, one has to be very careful in doing so. It is usually recommended for most males yet it is supposed to be done with precautions since it can cause a different set of problems once done incorrectly.

Serious health problems can be a result – if done to a person having severe health conditions. The same goes with some, even though in good health, have administered the milking incorrectly. When done without care, the prostate can be highly aggravated by diseases, infections and prostatitis or swelling. To make the matter worse, it can also cause prostate cancer, which is the second most lethal cancer for males these days.

The good thing is, since the health benefits of milking the prostate is very popular these days, there are a lot of products in the market that provide excellent demonstrations of how to do prostate milking safely and effectively. It is even available on video for a clearer and easier understanding on how to perform the prostate milking. To avoid any kind of health problems, try to consult your physician. By doing so, you will have an assurance that what is about to be performed on your prostate is done correctly and with utmost care. For those who have prostatitis this, is also a good way to relieve the build-up of seminal fluid that causes the swelling in the prostate.

It is healthy to milk the prostate; however, it is not advised to be done by people who have an acute prostatitis because it can cause infection that can spread around once prostate milking is done. It is also not to be done by those who have a metastatic prostate cancer for it can cause the cancer to spread to the other parts of the body. So whatever procedure you are going to have, it is highly recommended to know your body’s health. This is to avoid any kind of complications that may arise once a wrong decision is made.

4 Types Of Manicures And Pedicures


We also need to take care of our nails as much as we take care of our skin and hair. Every time you feel like pampering yourself, check out your nails if they too need a much-needed manicure or pedicure. Remember that getting a manicure and pedicure does not only mean to make it look prettier. During a manicure or pedicure, your nails are being treated so that lost supplements are replenished. When you get a foot or hand massage after a manicure or pedicure, you also make sure that your hands and feet are rejuvenated. There are 4 types of manicures and pedicures and these are the following:

1. Regular manicure and pedicure – you can call these the basic treatment. It involves soaking your hands and feet in soapy water. This process helps soften dead cells so it can easily be removed. Afterwhich, your nails will be clipped and your feet and sole will be scrubbed. The nail technician will also apply the nail polish that you like. Then, a short hand or foot massage will be performed. If you don’t like to use nail polish, you can go for a more natural look by opting for nail buffing.

2. French manicure or French pedicure – this is the most common and perhaps the most popular type of manicure treatment especially among women. It’s classic, elegant, simple, clean and chic and perhaps this is the reason for its popularity. A French manicure or French pedicure involves application of neutral translucent colored nail polish and then white tips.

You have the freedom to choose the shape of your nails. Oval, square or round, the choice is yours. When the process is done, your hands and feet will be moisturized to maintain its health. Usually, a nice and quick massage will also be included in the treatment.

3. Nail spa – this process is usually longer and more costly compared to other manicure and pedicure treatments. Your fingers and toe nails get special treatments and it’s usually a relaxing process. Depending on the salon, there are special ingredients added to this treatment just to make them more unique and special than the other salons.

Of course, regular mani and pedi treatment is included in this special spa treatment. Aside from these, you may also enjoy a short reflexology massage. Other salons also include a hydrating treatment to maintain and rejuvenate your nails, cuticles and skin.

4. Paraffin – this is a waxy substance that is used to hydrate the skin. It’s an alkaline substance that is wrapped the feet and the hands so that it can thoroughly seep in through the skin. Aside from this treatment, a regular mani and pedi are also included in the treatment.

Acupuncture Points – Cure Depression With Self Acupressure


Depression is a serious illness and about one in ten people will experience depression at some point. Depression can affect people of any age, including children. A lot times we don’t necessarily realize that we are suffering from depression, but it disturbs our normal lives if it is ignored for too long.

There are some common signs of depression, if you can identify with several of them and they won’t easily go away, the chances are that you are more or less suffering from depression.

1. Having sleeping problems, sleepless or sleep too much.

2. Having feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and nothing will get better.

3. Significant weight loss or weight gain, eating too much or too little.

4. Having trouble concentrating, making decisions, or remembering things.

5. Loss of interest in daily activities, even the ones you found very interesting and easy to accomplish before.

6. Being irritable and bad-tempered than usual.

7. Feeling lack of energy, fatigue, sluggish, heavy all the time.

8. More physical pains, such as headaches, back pain, stomach pain etc.

9. Strong feeling of self-criticizing, having thoughts that life is not worth living (this one is serious, seek help immediately!)

10. Experience of lowered sexuality.

Besides looking for professional helps, there are two acupuncture points you can use to relieve and cure depression yourself, they are Nei-guan points (PC 6) and Tai-chong points (LR 3).

Nei-guan points are located on the center lines of the arms on the inner sides, 3 cun (the width of your thumb at the mid joint is one ‘cun’, the width of middle three fingers at the mid joints is two ‘cun’, the width of the four fingers without the thumb at mid joints is three ‘cun’.) from the wrist lines. They belong to the pericardium meridians and are responsible for heart health, mentality normalization and psychological wellbeing.

Tai-chong points belong to the liver meridians and are responsible for liver health, alleviating irritability, clearing mind and stabilizing emotions.

Pressing and massaging these two points on both sides for 5 to 10 minutes each everyday and whenever feeling down will lift your spirit and recharge your body and mind with energy over the time. If you can massage Tai-chong points after a hot water foot bath before going to bed in the night, the result will be greater.

In additional, there is an acupuncture point called Tan-zhong point (CV 17), it is a very important point for enhancing mood. Tan-zhong point belongs to the conception vessel and is the midpoint between the centers of the breasts. It collects chest energy and provides energy for the heart. It has close relationship with our emotions. Whenever you feel sad, upset or angry, massage this point, it will calm you down and give you peaceful feelings.

Massage Tan-zhong point in a clock wise direction with 4 fingers closed or rub this point downwardly. 100 times or 2 to 3 minutes daily is an easy and good practice. There are many other benefits of massaging Tan-zhong point: improving breast health (especially for women); easing or curing asthma, cough, congested chest, fast heart beats etc.

Finally, having a positive attitude towards life is always the key to stay away from depression. Be more tolerant and forgiving, listen to peaceful and joyful music, talk to cheerful friends, participate meaningful activities and let go of things that you can’t control.

How Tight Or Hypertonic Adductors and Quadriceps Affect Ilio-psoas and Back Pain


The basis of pelvic balance relies on the ability of all the muscles which attach at the hip and groin to relax and extend after workout or exercise.

But as we all know, without stretching post-workout, the muscles remain shortened and develop adhesions or contractures.

Adhesions result when a certain group of muscle fibres stay stuck together after contracting, not releasing and then acting as a group rather than as individual muscle bundles.

A contracture is a knot which develops along the muscle belly, usually, because of repeated muscle contracting and not relaxing at that location in the muscle belly.

The result is a developing knot of muscles with the presence of excessive proteins binding the muscle filaments together and trapping lactic acid and other proteins in a knot. The required enzymes necessary for the releasing of these muscles appears to be absent or in short supply at the knot.

Massage therapy will release both adhesions and contractures. When the muscles doesn’t want to release, the use of pranic healing techniques will rid the etheric or energy congestion at the muscle knot location and assist the muscles to release.

There is a direct connection between the etheric or energy body and the physical body. Healing the first body releases the physical body. The body has the ability to heal itself when blockages are removed. Pranic healing techniques can achieve this most of the time.

How does tight quadriceps and adductors affect ilio-psoas?

By adding external pelvic tension against the hip bone. The attachments of the quadriceps and adductors along the pubic bone and especially upper iliac ( hip bone) pull the iliac into an outflare exerting outward pulling strain on the iliac, straining the iliac, and iliopsoas, as a consequence.

The ilio-psoas is two muscles which are hip flexors and torso flexor. The psoas is combined with the quadratus lumborum at the back of the lumbar acting as your core flexor-extensor combination. Any imbalance will often result in low back pain.

What I have discovered in performing multiple treatments on the ilio-psoas is that there is always accompanied tightness in the adductors and quadriceps on the same side as a tight ilio-psoas. Both are innervated by the femoral nerve.

I have found that releasing the adductors and quadriceps first will result in a lessening of the tension on the iliacus, and ilio-psoas as a consequence.

I welcome massage therapists to attempt this treatment sequence and be amazed at how quickly the ilio-psoas relaxes after treating the adductors and quadriceps first.

How To Make Your Breasts Grow Bigger and Faster Naturally


You could be looking for pieces of reliable information how to make your breasts grow bigger and faster naturally. There is nothing wrong with that, neither is it something to be surprised about. Lots of women nowadays are preferring natural methods to synthetics and invasive techniques. Breast augmentation used to be the only means you could have bigger breasts, and even though it is still widely popular among actresses, models, and those who can afford the procedure, it does not come without certain risks. Given the economic situation, too, looking for ways how to make your breasts grow bigger and faster naturally is not at all strange.

By and large, you must have heard of breast massages, specifically those that enhance the breasts. A breast massage, besides being a good way to detect breast lumps or other abnormalities, is also very useful when you want to have naturally bigger breasts. To do an effective breast massage, push from the nipple down using three of your fingers. Use light to moderate pressure only as you would not want to impede the flow of blood going to the breast area. Proceed with the next step, that is, to lightly massage your breasts. Form a cup with your two hands and hold one of your breasts in it. Then light massage it as if your are kneading a pizza dough.

Do the same thing with the other breast. Make sure not to apply too much pressure. This step should not hurt; if it does, stop immediately. Completing this step makes you ready for the next one, and this involves cupping your breast again and then twisting it clockwise and then counter-clockwise for ten times for each breast. Now move your palms downwards, your fingers rubbing the sides of your breast. Keep away from the nipple as much as possible, though. Go over these steps again and again, until you already know each step by heart. Don’t attempt to do a breast massage if you cannot follow these steps to the letter as this could backfire. So instead of having bigger breasts, you might end up with deformed ones.

Doing breast exercises will also help to give your breasts a lift. There are lots of breast exercises around, and it is always wise to start with those which you think are easy enough for you to do. This should keep you motivated to continue on with the program. You have to remember always that breast exercises have to be done at least three times a week, if you cannot do them every day. This means that once you have gotten into an exercise program, make sure that you go through with it long enough for you to see results. You cannot engage in breast exercises this week and then forget about them the following week – this is simply not going to work.

Actually, it also goes the same thing with breast massages. They, too, have to be done regularly, otherwise you will not be seeing your desired results in due time. So when you think of all these, if you want to know how to make your breasts grow bigger and faster naturally, the very first thing you must work on is your attitude, then doing all these techniques will not be so difficult for you.
