Sexual Health, Coaching, and Counseling

Our Sexual Health is so important for so many reasons!! 

Health Benefits that have been researched and proven due to sexual activity include: 

Cardiovascular

 

 

Men who have sex 2+/week cut their risk of an acute MI in half.
 

Weight loss

 

 

30 minutes of sex burns 85 calories

Boosts immune system

Regular sex increases serum immunoglobulin A, which reduces the risk of colds and flu.

Improved sleep hygiene

Sex relaxes and promotes deeper, more restful sleep

Strengthens pelvic floor muscles

Women who perform Kegel exercises during sex reduce their future risk of urine incontinence.

Reduces pain and increases pain tolerance

The effect is attributed to increased oxytocin levels, which alleviate arthritic and menstrual pain.

Reduced risk of prostate cancer
 

Men who have 5+ ejaculations/week have a lower risk of prostate cancer in later life.

Stress reduction

 

 

 

Endophins released during and after sex create a sense of euphoria, and reduce stress and blood pressure.

I believe that you don’t have to actually have a problem to go to sexual health counseling.

Sometimes as we go through life, and our bodies go through changes, and we need to rekindle, rejuvenate, and get to know our bodies intimately again.

When we do have concern and or issues with sexual function, it not only impacts our overall quality of life, but it impacts the relationship we have with not only ourselves, but with others.

I believe that pelvic and sexual health is a basic human right and a vital component of optimal wellness”
