Why Sitz Bath Shower Soak-Care Garments and Wrap-On Briefs?
The word sitz derives from the German word “sitzen,” which means “to sit.”
Until now the only way to perform a sitz bath was in the bathtub or on a plastic sitz bath bowl that rests on the toilet.
A Sitz bath is a method whereby a man or woman SOAKS their lower pelvic or perineum area with warm water or a mixture of warm water/Epsom Salt/Essential oils to relieve pain. Taking a Sitz bath temporarily relieves discomfort for many perineum related issues by relaxing muscles and increasing blood flow. For men it can help prostate related issues such as Prostatitis, Epididymitis and BHP, Urinary tract infections, hemorrhoids, and other genital/rectal pain. For women it can relieve menstrual cramps, itching, postpartum aches and pains, hemorrhoids, and other genital/rectal related aches and pains. A Sitz bath can also be used for daily hygiene both men and women.
