Perineum is the area between the anus and the genital organs. Perineum elevation refers to the gentle elevation of qi that puts the anus, urethra and the musculature of this area in a state of contraction as if to restrain with effort the discharge of stools and urine. The purpose of elevating the perineum is to lead the qi by will, and establish communication between the qi inhaled and the qi elevated to notify the kidneys and arrest spontaneous emission. From the modern medical point of view, elevating the perineum consistently and consciously improves the blood circulation and nutritional state of the Perinea tissue, accentuating the dilating, contracting and restraining functions of the anal sphincter, vesicle sphincter and musculature of the sex organs. That is why this therapy is useful for nocturnal emission, spermatorrhoea, impotence, premature ejaculation, hemorrhoids, anal fistula, and prolepses of the rectum and incontinence of urine.
