As mums we should all be doing our Kegel exercises.
We all know that it is important to take good care of our bodies. From eating correctly and exercising on a regular basis, to treating ourselves to manicures and pedicures at the salon - physical upkeep is not only important for self esteem, but for emotional well being and self confidence.
I remember the midwives in the prenatal classes and again after birth explaining the importance of exercising and strengthening our pelvic floor muscles.
But so many of us may 'squeeze' for a little while and then we sadly neglect our pelvic floor. There are so many more interesting things to do, like looking after our gorgeous new baby! Then we get a bit older and things can start falling apart, literally!
Fortunately, just like any other muscle group, these muscles can be trained and strengthened, with the best solution being Kegel Exercisers from Intimina. These help you to effectively gain pelvic strength in a comfortable, easy, and convenient way. It is an exciting new product just launched into the Australian market.
Kegel Exercisers are made from safe, smooth silicone and you simply start by selecting one of three weighted balls depending on your level of current pelvic strength. Its is worn discreetly during your usual daily activities. By using this, you will be able to have a solid object to contract around making strengthening more effective. You will also be able to locate and know your pelvic floor muscles, to ensure everything is being done efficiently and correctly. As your body strengthens over time, you can use a heavier ball to provide more resistance and keep training your muscles.
The Kegel Exerciser ball responds to your bodies movements and almost forces pelvic floor muscle contraction and release at times. Within each exerciser is a weighted ball that responds to your body’s movements, causing gentle kinetic vibrations to help prompt your pelvic floor muscles to respond as you walk around.
Kegel Exercisers are available in 3 different weights which can be used singly or combined to provide different levels of resistance.
A regular pelvic floor workout offers a range of benefits to women of all ages:
Prevent and treat continence problems
Prepare and strengthen vital muscles for a healthy pregnancy
Build muscles used in childbirth for easier delivery
Restore pelvic strength and tone to speed recovery after labour
Increase sensation during intimate activities for both you and your partner
Ease the symptoms of menopause
Kegel Exercisers are easy to insert and remove, and they naturally position themselves to target the correct muscle set.
Pelvic floor exercises can be performed before problems arise as a preventative exercise. In support of this, research indicates that Kegel exercises are 66% effective at correcting pelvic floor problems without the need for additional medical treatment (Cammu et al., 2000).
Strong pelvic floor muscles are absolutely crucial to our well-being.
They are available at selected Terry White Chemists and selected Blooms Pharmacies.
They are priced at $19.95 each.
Offer is available to Australia only.
