The prostate is a part of the male reproductive system located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum.

It can become inflamed, and while there are mainstream medical practices to treat prostate inflammation, or prostatitis, some alternative practitioners carry out a prostate massage.

In conventional medicine, a physician carries out a digital rectal examination (DRE) to diagnose prostatitis, growth, or inflammation of the prostate.

Some alternative practitioners maintain that “milking the prostate” in this way can relieve certain symptoms of an inflamed prostate, providing benefits that include improved urine flow and sexual function.

Types

Some individuals use regular prostate massages to deal manage symptoms of prostate problems.

Practitioners might perform this using their hands or with a prostate massaging device.

Prostate massage can be slightly painful. Some people report an increased burning sensation after drainage, due to the content of the fluids.

External prostate massage may involve exerting pressure on the perineum, the area about halfway between the anus and the scrotum.

Practitioners can also perform prostate massage by gently rubbing the belly, between the pubic bone and the belly button.

Devices are also available to assist with external prostate massage.
