Acupuncture for Men's Health

Acupuncture for Men’s Health

By Matthew Kammerer Lac, DiplOM

Acupuncture is a powerful therapeutic treatment for women’s health, offering a holistic approach and unique strategies, excelling where other medical interventions fall short.

But what about men’s health?

Does the lack of monitoring and preventative treatments specific to men mean they face less adverse health outcomes? Is there less of a need to prevent disease in men? Of course not.

In fact, conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, are commonly diagnosed when a patient finally sees a medical doctor for sexual dysfunction. Both men and women can benefit from acupuncture and herbal medicine, to improve or treat specific aspects of their gynecology and andrology.

Preventing and treating specific symptoms like frequent/difficult urination, or ED, with acupuncture and herbs does target the symptoms, but more importantly also treats deeper imbalances that are the root cause of these issues, and can prevent disease.

There is a harmful dichotomy of self-image many men carry with them: That stress is a good for men – a sign you are working hard. At the same time many men expect that they should be strong and healthy, and have vitality brimming over so they are always ready to please their partner.

How does a man get in good shape without taking care of himself?

Without enough sleep, too much stress, pain and inflammation, issues with digestion or emotional stability? He doesn’t.

Men are also more likely to ignore or delay treatment of health issues or mental/emotional symptoms.  If men are less likely to seek help, they might try fixing the problem themselves.

We all know there is a multitude of one pill to fix it ads, and hack supplement salesmen – they promise to fix ED and low testosterone, or just have you feeling great. But, those strategies prey on insecurity, and fall short of treating the root cause of dysfunction – your health!

Acupuncture for men’s health

Acupuncturists are trained professionals, and can help with what’s really going on.

We treat YOU differently than anyone other person.

A man who is a high level performer, who’s always “on” and has trouble relaxing enough to be intimate, will receive a treatment in stark contrast to a retired man who notices he is less sexually responsive to the same healthy stimulus from good company and environment that usually “does it for him.”

In both cases, the chief complaint and main symptom might be the lack ability to get and sustain an erection. In each case there is a different underlying pattern of disharmony in the body and mind, contributing to that same symptom.

We can treat the anatomical response directly and indirectly, and benefit your overall health, treating the root cause over time. Why settle for damage control when you can feel your true potential, or better yet feel you’re at your peak again?

Living well and aging gracefully as a man requires his attention: Regular acupuncture guides patients to guide themselves. It provides a place to check in with one’s self, track progress, and get treatment before problems get worse.

Acupuncture treats physical, mental, and sexual health, by reducing: stress, depression/anxiety, insomnia, digestive issues, emotional instability.

Regular acupuncture and herbal medicine can treat: Prostatitis, urinary difficulties, low sperm count, infertility, Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).
