    There is this issue within the massage therapy profession about boundaries, draping, etc. Fortunately some of us have thrown out these antiquated ideas in order to really help men through massage.

    One was is through pelvic unwinding. When you think of it, your pelvis is basically your center. There are more than 20 muscles inserting in and around the pelvis...hip flexors, lower back, groin, abdominal muscles, muscles around your genitals and anus, etc.

    Yes, it is intimate work but the results can be amazing for anyone suffering from chronic back or hip pain, or many other maladies such as ED, prostatitis, etc. It is especially helpful for athletes.

    I have been doing this type of massage for a while now and my practice has been vastly improved in what I can offer athletes and others. Would be interested in hearing from other therapists. I am considering doing some classes on this technique and protocol.

    I am curious about your theory and technique. I have a recurring issue with my SI joint(one side). Would your treatment work for me?

    Probably it would. Remember, your lumbar disks are separate...and when they get to the bottom at L5 or L6, there is a shelf. Below that shelf your sacral disks are all fused together like an upside-down arrow.

    There has to be a shelf betweent these or you would not be able to move side to side or front to back....this shelf, the SI joint only has to move a fraction to create pain.

    Most of the time the movement is caused by other muscles like hip flexors, etc. You may also have a short leg. If you do sit ups or work your abs a lot (or with other activities) your psoas can be tighter on one side, pulling up that hip.

    You lower back at the SI joint wants, most of all, to stay balanced. As soon as something pulls it out...bam! You are in pain.

    Wow! Our chat about pelvic unwinding has generated a lot of emails and I have had 8 guys come for the session. So far, everyone has loved it and the treatments have helped a great deal.

    Pelvic Unwinding and male massage is finally coming into its own and that means lots of guys will actually get the help they need...so throw the towel away....

    And, by the way, just because you are comfortable lying on my table naked doesn't mean we are getting married...it means you trust me to do the work that you need...and, for that, I am very grateful.

    Is this a hands only technique? Or are you using other means.

    I have done this before. I did it today as a matter a fact. It is ajusting the lower back in lower vertibrates. I don't think it should be forced, but once it releases there is a deep pop in the lower back. I would not recommend it be done alot.icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm a massage/energy therapist and there are lots of ways to unwind the pelvis, I'm curious about the way you perform this "technique" and why it is important for your clients to be nude. All of my techniques can be done fully clothed.

    LOL timber. You are my cute poster child for quizzical looks icon_smile.gif

    All the muscles he talks about inserting into the pelvis also conveniently (or inconveniently, depending on your view) insert right near the ah ... well, to be medical about it... the penis, the scrotum, the perineum, and the anus. To massage these insertion points, it's difficult if not impossible to do with jeans and boxers on.

    I would imagine that would be quite a bit more 'stimulating' than a regular massage.

    I am sure there is wood happening here. And it is just ignored? ...and I mean ignored beyond just not erotic touching, but the men get erections and you all just ignore it.

    Yes, some men to get a boner...but so what? I have other clients who get one when I massage the thigh or butt or whatever. It happens. So what?

    The more important discussion is how pelvic work really does help. We need to put aside all our old boundary issues and forget what Mommy and Daddy said about "that part" of our bodies...

    There is a wonderful book out, by actual licensed physicians, by the way, called "The Headache in the Pelvis."

    I know this work is pushing the envelope and many therapists will shy away but we need to push the envelope and do the work that counts. For me, helping many men recover from a variety of conditions is far more important that keeping the draping secure!

    Let me post some comments here:

    I have been to this guy... he is only interested in young well built guys... he does this pelvic thing on them hoping to get them off.. then he has many websites where he talks about the importance of men being with men. but is extreemly selective for the young boys. Calls himself "Doc".

    he does do an ok job on the groin area... if you blow him willl reduce the rate and meet with you more.. he is extreemly out of shape... which is fine and has a visual problem... There is nothing wrong with the phsycial appearance of the guy, however if you plan to be selective on who you service you should be open about that. Will give a huge discount if you blow him, will try to teach you somethings about pelvic. if older he avoids you, but continues to adverstise and publish websites that MAN2MAN is the way to be and looks and shapes is not important.

    I am no prize but his servivces sounds great, but just will not do it on guys that don't meet his criteria..... unless you provide oral on him and he needs it.

    BE HONEST DUDE!!!!!

    I'm not a massage therapist, but I can attest to the benefits of the type of massage you describe.

    I continue to develop breathing and posture exercises to enhance the pelvic unwinding massages I get.

    Getting a boner during the massage is nothing to be embarresed about.

    Massage is a great thing.
