For over 15 years, Kristina Amelong, CCT, CNC, founder of Optimal Health Network, has had a very high success rate helping clients heal from anal fissures. One part of her carefully developed treatment protocol that is perhaps less common, but has been important for many of her clients, is anal sphincter massage.

anal canal

What Is the Anal Sphincter?

The anal sphincter is a group of muscles which surround the anus and control the release of stool from your body. This muscle group consists of the external sphincter muscle (a voluntary muscle) and the internal sphincter muscle (an involuntary muscle).

Optimally functioning anal sphincter muscles are very important, and difficulty relaxing them due to stress or a medical condition can cause constipation and reduce blood circulation to the anal canal, which can lead to health complications such as hemorrhoids and anal fissures.

Anal Self-Massage

If your sphincter muscles are too tight for an extended period of time, the tension and lack of blood flow to the anal area can cause a fissure to form, or make it difficult for an existing fissure to heal. Research has shown that by loosening (relaxing) these muscles, anal sphincter massage can play a large part not only in helping to relieve constipation, but also in healing and preventing anal fissures.

A 2017 Annals of Gastroenterology study compared fissure treatment with anal dilators (another treatment method that some people use) with anal self-massage. The study found that self-massage appears to better heal anal fissures than anal dilators do, and in a shorter time, with 80% of the patients treated with sphincter massages showing disappearance of their anal fissures.

Super Salve

How To Massage Your Anal Sphincter Muscles

  • Be sure that your hands are clean, or that you are wearing sterile gloves.
  • Apply lubrication to your index finger (we recommend Super Salve), then insert your index finger into your anus.
  • Move your index finger around in a steady circular motion, applying gentle pressure until your sphincter muscles relax. This process may take a few minutes, but should not be painful, as long as you're using lubrication.
  • Alternatively, you can use a lubricated Delrin nozzle (pictured below) instead of your finger, applying a small circular motion to relax the sphincter muscles. We offer these very smooth, hard plastic nozzles in a range of diameters, including our Economy Delrin Nozzle #2.
  • Anal sphincter massage/dilation may induce a bowel movement, so it is best to do this near a toilet.
  • You can use a mirror or your smartphone camera to examine the area around the fissure visually before or during the anal massage in order to optimize the process. Be cautious and gentle, especially when in direct contact with a fissure. Healing best happens when there is gentle intimacy with the body.

Deep Breathing and Mindfulness

In addition to anal self-massage, some people are able to loosen their sphincter muscles by doing deep breathing exercises and working to be more aware of when they are holding these muscles too tightly in an effort to relax them as much as possible.

Summary

The primary goal is to increase blood flow in the tissues around the fissure by relaxing the sphincter muscles, whether this is accomplished through deep breathing and mindfulness, anal sphincter massage, or a combination of these methods.

Grateful for Anal Fissure Healing Kit

I have a Crohn's related anal fissure that's been draining for a few years, which has caused much pain, discomfort, and messiness! I've had surgery, been to all the specialists, and they said there's nothing more they can do except try the big gun meds, and I'm not ready for that. In the meantime I just ordered the Anal Fissure Suppository Kit and Super Salve and I'm SO impressed with the results thus far! There is still drainage, but the pain is leaving and everything is starting to feel so much better. SO grateful for OHN.

I'm also going to order the MSM next. I wanted to try one thing at a time. The Super Salve is great help too. I think the MSM will help with my arthritis too... Excited, excited, excited!

Thanks for your help.



Success Using Anal Fissure Essential Oil Suppositories

I have been using the anal fissure essential oil suppositories for 10 days and am quite surprised at the level of healing within this short time frame. I have added (I'm guessing) about 5-8 drops per coconut suppository. I have also been able to soften stool with a modest change in diet and a daily walk. I have been fighting this fissure on and off for 3 years with my doctor recommending surgery.

My RN daughter suggested your site. Mighty glad she did.



Anal Fissure Has Fully Healed

Hello, Kristina. I hope you are well. A few months ago we had a personal consult and you helped me to recover from a recurring fissure. I am fully healed in that respect, and adding more protein to my diet definitely has had many additional benefits, so thank you so much for your help!

Anal Fissure Essential Oil Blend Has Given Me My Life Back

I just love your Anal Fissure Essential Oil Blend! I had instant relief when I applied it directly on my anal fissure! It took away the pain totally and has given me my life back. Along with taking my daily goat milk soap enemas and the blended oil, I can get back to work and spend quality time with my family again. I have prepared suppositories and have yet to use them, but plan on starting tonight. I have just placed my second order for your organic enema coffee and more of your Anal Fissure Essential Oil Blend. I believe this will finally help me heal completely from my embarrassing problem once and for all!

Love you for providing me with hope and comfort!

Sincerely,
Lisa
