The Sitz bath offers a similar approach to that of the hot and cold showering but it targets precisly the pelvic area of the body, The circulatory system is stimulated and movement generated that also effects the lymphatic system. This will energise the pelvic organs; the reproductive system, bladder and bowel. And will be useful in examples of muscular weakness for example urinary incontinence or prolapses. Muscles are exercises through contraction and relaxation and this exercise will help to tone uscles. It can also be useful in cases of a hardening prostate. It is stagnation that contributes to the hardening.
