GAINESVILLE, Fla., Dec. 14, 2004 /PRNewswire/ — In a study published today in Medscape General Medicine, Ob/Gyn & Women’s Health, researchers reported that a manual physical therapy technique is highly effective in increasing orgasm intensity and frequency and reducing painful intercourse in women.
The therapy, known as the Wurn Technique(R), is a new, patent-protected series of manual physical therapy and massage techniques designed to reduce adhesions and mechanical factors that cause pain or dysfunction. No drugs or surgery are involved.
Study participants were 23 women who reported painful intercourse and/or difficulty or inability to orgasm. According to the study, the therapy significantly increased orgasm in 56% and reduced intercourse pain in 96% of the women. Statistically significant improvements were noted in all six major areas (desire [libido], arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction, and pain) on a standardized test of female sexual dysfunction.
Co-developer Belinda Wurn, PT, says, “Adhesions can form anywhere in the female reproductive tract, decreasing sensation and causing pain. Our therapy frees the tissues from these adhesive constraints, restoring normal function and allowing women to return to a healthy sex life.”
The study is the third to be published on the Wurn Technique(R) in Medscape General Medicine, Ob/Gyn & Women’s Health this year. Two prior studies, published in June, reported the therapy’s effectiveness in helping infertile women to conceive. In the first study, natural pregnancy occurred in 71% of infertile women within one year of treatment. The second study showed that women who used the therapy within 15 months prior to in vitro fertilization (IVF) increased their chances for IVF pregnancy by 63%.
