ACUPUNCTURE FOR MEN

ACUPUNCTURE FOR MEN

Acupuncture For Men’s Health 

The practitioners with Acupuncture For Men’s Health offer men the opportunity to experience a natural form of healing those concerns that are specifically associated with men.  Be it enlarged prostate symptoms, sexual health, stress, weight loss, anxiety, digestion, or simply maintaining a healthy lifestyle, acupuncture can bring symptom relief along with new and interesting ways of understanding the body and facilitating a general sense of well-being and lifestyle. Some symptoms can be confusing for men, so we aim to help you feel comfortable while providing an informative treatment strategy for you when dealing with sensitive personal matters.

Prostate Health 

This is something that men are hesitant to learn about until symptoms start to appear.  If you are experiencing symptoms of frequent urination, hesitancy, dribbling, pain with urination or getting up to urinate during the night, acupuncture and Chinese Medicine provides a systematic approach to the overall body constitution and the underlying causes of your symptoms. We treat symptoms associated with prostatitis and enlarged prostate (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).

Sexual Health 

Maintaining healthy sexual function creates a wonderful fulfilling life. Many men have concerns of erectile function, premature ejaculation, high or low libido and even pain with intercourse. Chinese medicine is a way to encourage the body to maintain blood flow and muscle tone that will help maintain a wonderful sex life. To answer the most common question asked…. We do not insert needles into the genitals! What a relief right!. Chinese medicine works on a full body approach, so what happens on the mainland happens on the peninsula! Lets work together in a holistic way to balance the blood flow and energy to all vital organs which in turn will provide the results you are looking for.

Insomnia Stress and Anxiety 

Ahhhhh the never ending challenge of decreasing that pesky stress  in our lives! With practitioners offering affordable 30 minutes de-stress treatments you can enjoy regular stress relieving experiences that are designed to help you function with more energy and decreasing the overwhelm and pressure we put on ourselves and others. Acupuncture helps to stimulate the para-sympathic nervous system allowing more blood to flow into our cardiovascular system and digestive areas. This is turn creates a sense of ease in our day and helps with our relationships.

 

The Acupuncture Profession

For men who are not aware of the credentials needed to become an acupuncturist here is a little information to help you understand.

All acupuncturists must complete a 4 year or 3 year accelerated Masters Degree program. Therefore even before entering into acupuncture school you must have a an undergraduate degree.  On completion, graduates must pass national board exams in the Foundations of Chinese Medicine, Western Medicine, Point Location, and in some states Chinese Herbs. The results are submitted along with a background check, clean needle technique certification to the licensing board in their state.  Most states are licensed by the medical boards, the same governing body that regulate the license for doctors.  The process to become a licensed acupuncturist is 7-8 years of schooling.  Some practitioners go on to do a Doctorate or PhD in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine which can take a minimum of 2 years. All acupuncturist will have a license number. If you would like to check up to see if a practitioner is licensed then just ask us and we can show you how.

Clean Needle Technique 

All acupuncturist undergo a certification in clean needle technique. This training provides the acupuncturist with set protocols when dealing with needles. Client can be assured that the needles used by an acupuncturist are brand new packaged needles and are only used once then discarded after every patient. Never are needles used twice even on the same patient.

Do The Needles Hurt?

Acupuncture needles are very very fine. They are very different than needles that you would see to draw blood. Most men chuckle when the first needle goes in because they can’t believe they didn’t feel anything.  Most people work it up to be something far greater than it is.  If you have a fear of needles this is very different. If the needles hurt nobody would get acupuncture. At some tender points there maybe slight discomfort however dissipates after a few seconds.

Do You Put Needles In My Genitals?

We do not place needles in the genitals. If you are coming in for genital concerns such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, urinary symptoms we can treat these concerns with distal points.  We are working on the mechanisms that make the genitals work therefore it is not necessary to place the needles locally.  You will be fully clothed or draped during the treatment. There are very powerful acupuncture points located on the perineum underneath the testicles. These points can be used when indicated and with the permission of the client. They are not compulsory as we have many other options to choose from.  Our treatments are designed so that you are comfortable and relaxed.

 

Do You Examine The Genitals To See What is Going On?

In cases of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation there is no need to examine the exterior of the genitals when making a Chinese medical diagnosis. This is an internal medical concern.  Chinese diagnosis consists of asking you some questions about your concern. Things like are you able to obtain an erection? Are you able to maintain an erection?  The practitioner will also ask you general questions like do you run hot or cold? cold hands and feet? experience night sweats? This information helps us to determine what is called in Chinese medicine a pattern differentiation. This will aid us in choosing the most effective treatment for you.  The more you can tell us the better we are able to see a bigger picture and to be more efficient in our treatments for faster results. The practitioner will also do a pulse diagnosis and examine your tongue. This is very common during a Chinese medical examination and will help with deciding a Chinese Medical treatment. If you are interested in what the practitioner sees and how they decide the treatment then just ask we are happy to educate our clients on what we are doing and why.
