DO ALL ACUPUNCTURISTS TREAT ALL AILMENTS?
Well, all acupuncturists are definitely trained and legally can treat all ailments however most don’t. Some will specialize to gain more precise and effective treatments for their clients. Some acupuncturists specialize in Women’s health, cancer treatments, digestive ailments and muscular pain. Our practitioners specialize in Men’s Health and we want our male clients to become work towards the best health possible for them. The practitioners with acupuncture for men’s health undergo ongoing training with us and have regular clients from us so we know they are the most experienced and the best in their field.
We understand that men’s health can contain sensitive conversations about sexual health, urination and prostate health, some general acupuncturist may not be comfortable with these conversations. As specialists in men’s health you will know that we will refer you to a practitioner that is not only comfortable talking about these concerns they will create a comfortable space for you also. All our acupuncturists undergo an interview process and are selected based on professionalism and experience. They are invested in you and your health.

CAN I TALK TO THE PRACTITIONER?
As you can imagine, our practitioners are busy with their patients all day which can cause delays in getting the information you need and the appointment time you desire if you call direct, so I have all their schedules with me and will book you an appointment while you are on the phone. I am Dr Sharon Elizabeth Allison LAc DAOM an acupuncturist who also answers the phone so I can answer all your initial questions. Either by email or phone we would love to help you explore the world of acupuncture and what it can do for you. Once we have you booked in I will send you the address and direct number with a confirmation and your practitioner will call or text to confirm your appointment directly. Our booking system is as efficient and effective as your treatments will be.
DO I HAVE TO PAY UPFRONT?
No… you will just need to pay or give insurance information to your acupuncturists at the time of your appointment. All our acupuncturists accept cash check and credit card.
DO THE NEEDLES HURT?
It is a little funny but many men….more than we could ever have imagined are a little timid of needles however most are surprised to realize that they don’t feel a thing during their treatment. Most enjoy a little nap and some time out….it’s a great excuse to leave the office for an afternoon nap. Just say ” I have an acupuncture appointment for my allergies” hehe.
DO YOU PUT NEEDLES IN MY GENITALS?
For male sexual health and prostate health many men assume that acupuncturists place needles in the genitals. This is actually not so necessary. As the Chinese medicine system exists of channels and meridians that start and finish in the arms, legs, chest and head, you will find that is where we place the needles. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is a complex system of pathways and each acupuncture point has certain actions. The channels that circle the genital area can be very effected by points on the legs and chest. If you are interested in learning more about this in your treatments our acupuncturists will be more than happy to explain what points they are selecting and why. It is truly fascinating to our clients when they start to gain results it seems the more they become curious and we are happy to teach so please feel free to ask us!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Most, and I truly mean 85% of our clients will have some form of results after just one treatment. Results come in varied ways. You might find yourself sleeping better or experiencing a feeling of contentment. You might find your urine stream stronger and your nocturnal erections as they were when you were 17 years old. Thats what our clients tell us.
