Advantages improves pelvic floor muscles, effective, easy to use
I am the first to write about the Pelvic Floor Toner, so I will start by saying that this review is of a sensitive nature and is aimed at women (sorry guys!). I think that from all of the reviews I have written so far, this has to be the most important as it deals with an issue that so many women are too embarrassed to talk about.When I was pregnant everyone kept on telling me to do my Pelvic Floor exercises - to do this you squeeze your muscles together as if you are trying to stop yourself from weeing. I did these regularly and also did them after the birth of my Son. Up until I was 8 months pregnant I was going to the gym 3-4 times a week and although I did my pelvic floor exercises I took it for granted that I had no problems 'down there' so to speak. So, when my Son turned one year's old I decided to start exercising to tone up, this involved some light jogging and using a mini trampoline. This is when I realised that my pelvic floor was very weak.
If you find that you wee a little (or a lot) when you laugh, sneeze and/or exercising then it may be a sign that you need to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. In hindsight, I should have realised that my pelvic floor muscles were weak as when I was trying to pull them in it felt like I wasn't doing anything.It sounds embarrassing, but I was unable to jog/run unless I was wearing a sanitary pad and I quickly realised that I had no control over my pelvic floor, which results in incontinence. This made me feel very down and I stopped exercising as I was conscious that I wasn't able to control my pelvic floor. I hadn't really noticed that it was a big problem until I started jogging. I spoke to the Health Visitor and it was recommended that I try a Pelvic Floor Toner. I did a little research on the internet and found the Bodykind Pelvic Floor Toner. It cost £31.00 and I purchased it from Bodykind through Ebay. I also researched electronic pelvic floor toners but they cost in excess of £100 for the good ones, so decided on a cheaper manual one.
The Pelvic Floor Toner is a progressive resistance exerciser which is used to increase your pelvic floor muscle tone (otherwise known as Kegel exercises). A healthy pelvic floor is important at all stages of life as exercising your pelvic floor will help to strengthen the muscles that support the Vagina (yes, I said the 'V' word - phew! Glad that's over and done with!), urethra, bladder, uterus and rectum. This could also alleviate urinary incontinence, support child birth, discourage pelvic floor disease and menstrual problems and improve your sexual enjoyment and responsiveness.I was a little daunted when I first used the Pelvic Floor Toner as the toner looks big. I was also expecting it to be very uncomfortable to use but it wasn't. The toner comes with a number of tension springs; these allow you to use the toner at a comfortable setting so that you can build up the muscles over time. The first spring is easy and the second spring can be used once you build up resistance.
