How is Hydrotherapy Used to Exercise the Penis?

Vacuum pumps work by creating a type of vacuum around the penis. This vacuum helps blood flow into the penis, while a constrictive band is placed around the base of the penis to maintain the erection. While vacuum pumps like VaxAid can be an effective way to restore your sexual ability, they aren’t a cure for the conditions that may be causing your erectile difficulties.

Like other penile pumps, VaxAid can be used in air, but for added convenience, there's another option – in the bath or shower, these pumps can be filled with warm water, giving the user a complete hydrotherapy workout for the penis.

What is hydrotherapy?

Technically, ‘hydrotherapy’ refers to using water as therapy in any form. Water therapy uses either hot or cold water, with the water pressure and flow varying among treatments. The intention is to ease both physical and mental symptoms.

Some hydrotherapy practices are as simple as sitting in a warm bath, which people can do at home. Other practices involve specialist locations or equipment, such as a cold sauna.

Hydrotherapy for the penis involves creating a vacuum around the penis. This vacuum draws blood into the penis, quickly giving the user an erection, with continued use resulting in a harder, long-lasting erection - a completely scientific process.

What are the benefits of hydrotherapy for the penis?

Benefits of hydrotherapy for the penis include:

  • Lower risk of complications
  • Minimal cost after initial purchase
  • Noninvasive
  • Can be combined with oral medications

Historically, there have been some drawbacks for vacuum pumps, with many finding the pumps somewhat awkward to use. We’ve designed VaxAid as a direct response to these issues, making the pumps easy to use in both air and water.

Hydro penis pumps can help with several ED symptoms, including:

  • Poor blood flow into the penis
  • Excess blood flow out of the penis during erection
  • Damage to nerves that control the erection reflex
