Prostate massage can not only be pleasurable, the purported health benefits connected with this therapy have been growing. One of the proponents of this internal organ therapy is Jean-Pierre Barral, DO, MRO, RPT, named by Time magazine as one of the top healing innovators to watch in the new millennium. He is an osteopath and registered physical therapist who serves as a director and faculty member of the Department of Osteopathic Manipulation at the University of Paris School of Medicine in France. He developed the modalities of visceral manipulation which is a manual therapy that focuses on the internal organs, their environment and their potential influence on physiological dysfunctions. Having been practicing visceral stimulation of the prostate gland for years, he has seen the manyfold benefits for men who received prostate stimulation. The manual therapy influences the mobility, motility, hardness, consistency, extensibility, elasticity, pressure, the ejaculatory ducts of the prostate.
