Why we started...

Around 1 in 12 men will experience some form of pelvic pain during their lifetime.  Understanding, awareness and treatment within the medical community is woefully lacking. Men live with this condition, sometimes for years, suffering and in pain.  

We know that recovery from CPPS and Prostatitis is absolutely possible because we been through it and have gone on to help hundreds of other men to recover too. 

It is our mission to share our knowledge, strategies and skills with the world and become THE go-to place for male pelvic health.

We want to be the place men turn to when they are looking for the most professional, up to date care, expertise and recovery strategies AND where clinicians come to learn how to provide informed and effective care for their patients. 

We are passionate about making recovery from male pelvic pain available to everyone.
