What is Genital De-armouring?
Genital dearmouring is a holistic healing practice that aims to release the physical and emotional tensions stored in the genital area. This technique is used to treat a variety of sexual dysfunctions, including vaginismus, which is a condition that affects many people with vulvas worldwide.
Vaginismus is a painful condition where the vaginal muscles contract involuntarily, making it difficult or impossible to have penetrative sex or insert a tampon. It is often caused by psychological factors such as anxiety, fear, trauma, and stress. While there are many treatment options available for vaginismus, genital dearmouring is becoming increasingly popular due to its effectiveness in treating this condition.
Genital dearmouring involves a combination of massage, deep breathing, and visualization techniques to release the physical and emotional tensions stored in the pelvic region. This technique helps to promote relaxation and increase blood flow to the genital area, which can help to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with vaginismus.
One of the main benefits of genital dearmouring is that it can help people with vulvas to reconnect with their bodies and their sexuality. Many people with vulvas with vaginismus have experienced trauma or negative experiences related to sex, which can lead to a disconnection from their bodies and their sexual desires. By releasing the physical and emotional tensions in the pelvic region, genital dearmouring can help people with vulvas to feel more comfortable and confident in their bodies, which can have a positive impact on their sexual experiences.
Another benefit of genital dearmouring is that it can help to improve overall sexual function. Many women with vaginismus may experience difficulties with arousal and orgasm, which can impact their sexual satisfaction. By releasing the physical and emotional tensions in the pelvic region, genital dearmouring can help to improve blood flow and sensitivity in the genital area, which can enhance sexual pleasure and increase the likelihood of achieving orgasm.
It is important to note that genital dearmouring should only be performed by a trained professional who has experience in working with women with sexual dysfunctions. By releasing the physical and emotional tensions stored in the pelvic region, this technique can help people with vulvas to reconnect with their bodies and their sexuality, improve overall sexual function, and alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with vaginismus. However, it is important to seek out a trained professional and to use genital dearmouring in conjunction with other treatment options for optimal results. A sexological bodyworker is trained in genital dearmouring and can provide additional tools to help you stay physically in touch and relaxed when you are working to heal.
