Dear There is no support in literature for this method. There are no clinical studies which support the use of prostate massage for BPH or ED.Only one study and one case report is there in the literature which has used massage for prostatitis ( not for BPH).In total 6 patients have undergone this method which is a very small number and even in these alpha blockers and antibiotics have been used. Thereby negating any usefulness of massage as solitary treatment.See linkshttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17415302?ordinalpos=6&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_DefaultReportPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSumhttp://www.duj.com/Article/Hennenfent2/Hennenfent2.html
