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.
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.
