How a happy ending massage can help with IBS and constipation

It’s estimated that one in five people in the UK suffer from digestive problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and constipation. Digestive problems are very common but luckily can be fixed with a few simple lifestyle changes and pharmaceutical remedies. Some conditions such as IBS are long-term issues, often lifelong, with symptoms that can be quite uncomfortable and distressing.

Irritable bowel syndrome is a common condition that usually develops between the ages of 20 and 20. Women are more susceptible to it, with twice as many suffering it than men. IBS can cause spells of stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. Symptoms can vary from person to person and some may experience it more severely than others. IBS usually comes in waves, coming and going in periods that may last as short as a few hours to a few months at a time. Going to the toilet usually relieves some of the painful symptoms.

It’s not known what causes IBS, but experts seem to think that stress and certain foods play a role in triggering it. Some people’s intestines are less efficient in digesting food and because food passes through too slowly quickly, they feel pain. The symptoms of IBS include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhoea
  • Constipation
  • Bloating
  • Flatulence
  • Feeling an urgent need to go to the toilet
  • Feeling as though you haven’t fully emptied your bowels
  • Passing mucus from your bottom
  • Lethargy (lack of energy)
  • Nausea
  • Backache
  • Bladder problems (e.g. difficulty in fully empting bladder or experiencing an urgent need to urinate)
  • Pain during sex
  • Incontinence

As for constipation, this condition is more common and more easily treated than IBS. Constipation can affect a variety of ages, from babies to adults. An estimated one in every seven adults and one in three children suffer from constipation at any one time. Like IBS, the condition affects twice as many women than men. It’s more common during pregnancy.

It’s difficult to identify the precise cause of constipation, but experts say a number of factors contribute. Not enough fibre, changes in eating habits, ignoring the urge to go to the toilet and not drinking enough fluids can cause constipation. Anxiety, depression and certain medications can also play a role.

Normal bowel habits vary from person to person. While medical experts recommend every day is normal, some may go multiple times a day while others go every other day. Everyone is different. However, if you are passing stool less frequently than you normally do or it’s become more difficult to do so, you may be constipated. The symptoms include:

  • Difficulty in passing stool
  • Feeling unable to completely empty your bowels
  • Dry, hard and/or lumpy stool
  • Abnormally large or small stool
  • Stomach ache and cramps
  • Bloating
  • Nausea
  • Loss of appetite

IBS and constipation can be treated with a few lifestyle changes. Diet plays a large role. For example, with IBS, you should try to identify the foods or drinks that seem to trigger your symptoms, and then try to avoid them. As for constipation, eating more fibre and drinking more water may help. As well as dietary changes, exercise and massage therapy are thought to help digestive issues.

For a cure that targets the symptoms of digestive problems more ‘actively’, massage therapy is a recommended treatment. There are specific massage movements and techniques that can physically ‘push’ substances through your body’s various channels. From blood and oxygen through the vessels to waste products in the intestines, massage can help boost stagnant flow of products through the body.

Massage therapy is known to improve the function of various bodily systems including the circulatory, lymphatic, immune and digestive systems. Where does the happy ending massage come in? Well, the ‘happy ending’ massage is a massage session that typically ends in an orgasmic release, whether that be by hand, mouth or something extra. While this might sound more pleasurable than therapeutic or medicinal, orgasmic releases are about more than just sex.

IBS is thought to be triggered by stress. Orgasms are basically the opposite of stress. When have you ever had an orgasm and thought about work, your troubled relationship or past? Exactly. Your mind goes gloriously blank for those precious five seconds (longer if you’re one of the lucky ones). Even after an orgasm, you lie there, blinking and staring blissfully up at the ceiling.

A happy ending massage promotes all the benefits of a normal massage, but with an additional pleasurable benefit. As previously mentioned, pleasure is the opposite to stress and a natural way of combatting it. When you experience an orgasm, your body releases a cocktail of feel-good hormones into your bloodstream. The mixture includes oxytocin, prolactin and serotonin which can improve and stabilise mood, reduce anxiety and relax the mind. Serotonin is particularly known for being the ‘happy’ hormone. It’s a key component in anti-depressants and is the body’s natural mood-enhancing chemical. As a happy ending massage promotes the release of endorphins, it’s an all-natural, medication-free way to reduce stress and anxiety.
