We all know it, the unwritten rule of society: there are some things that we just don’t talk about. Money, sex, reproductive health – they’re all considered rather taboo, at least when it comes to so called “decent” conversation. The problem with this stigma is that it has led to many people being ignorant of these topics, carrying on with their lives unaware of the complications that can arise from them and perhaps more importantly, the options available to alleviate their physical discomfort. I am certain that the terms O-shot and Priapus Shot, for example, are unfamiliar to most people. They certainly were to me, before I went to speak to the team at A Wrinkle in Time, at their office located on Mill Street in Orangeville. Thankfully, as one of the few proprietors of the procedures in Ontario, they are working hard to get the word out and are certainly ready to answer any questions that you might have.
Originated and trademarked by Dr. Charles Runels, the O-Shot and Priapus Shot are unique procedures that have been designed to naturally help both women and men, respectively, with their sexual health. Among the reasons for turning to this procedure is increased libido for men and women, as well as helping with erectile disfunction in men, and stress and urgency incontinence for women. All of which are natural and medical complications that arise as we age. While erectile disfunction is often talked about, stress and urgency incontinency (both of which effect our ability to control our bladders, and increase the need and frequency to relieve ourselves) are not spoken about nearly as much. For many women and men alike, they find it a relief and a comfort to discuss these issues with the professionals at A Wrinkle in Time, and know there’s a path to easing their discomfort.
For whatever reason that you might be considering the O-shot or Priapus Shot, rest assured that it is a fairly simple, all-natural procedure that runs on the principle of using your own plasma to stimulate cell rejuvenation which increases the health of the area that it is injected into. This method has been known to us for sometime, and is already being implemented for facial and hair rejuvenation; the Priapus Shots and O-shots simply repurpose the method to rejuvenate a new part of the body – which increases our health and wellbeing overall. So, what are the steps involved? Firstly, a simple blood sample is drawn, which will then be placed into a centrifuge in order to separate and collect the plasma. It’s this plasma, rich in platelets and known as platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is key to restoring and rejuvenating cell activity in your body, which is then injected into the area to stimulate the cell’s natural processes. While it’s entirely possible to feel the benefits immediately, this is an on going progression, which continues to work, rejuvenating your cells in the following weeks. This is part of the reason that it is recommended to have the procedure once every four weeks for three months initially, and then once a year for maintenance.
I am sure that following all of that, a few more questions have arisen – particularly when it comes to health, safety and comfort. So, let me try and answer some of your possible concerns. First of all, a topical freezing is applied at the onset, making it entirely painless. Secondly the entire procedure, which takes no more than an hour, will occur at A Wrinkle in Time’s facilities, performed exclusively by Tammy Brady, a trained registered nurse who has been certified by The Cellular Medicine Association to perform this procedure under the medical direction of Dr. Melanie Hall, to ensure that the utmost care is taken. After all, their first and foremost concern is your health. Your comfort and privacy are of the utmost importance to the entire team and every measure is taken to ensure that you continue to feel safe through the entire course of your procedure. Furthermore, this is an approved procedure by Health Canada. Every consideration has been made and every step taken to ensure that this procedure is done professionally and correctly. Your health is in good hands with this particular team.
So, if you’re ready to talk about the “taboo” and want more details to discover if an O-shot or Priapus Shot is the right course of action for you, reach out to the team at A Wrinkle in Time for more information on the specifics of the procedure, and how it can help you. It might seem a little intimidating at first, but you know what they say: you’ll never know until you give it a try!
