Acupuncture for men
Acupuncture is an effective treatment for a wide range of health issues affecting men, from general low energy and fatigue caused by stress or overwork to very specific ailments such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
If you find your sleep disturbed by the need to get up in the night to urinate, or if your urine flow takes a while to start and just never gets fully going, then you are probably suffering from Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Enlargement of the prostate is one of the commonest conditions affecting men in middle and later life and can cause urinary dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, and pain. While conventional treatments often carry unfortunate side effects, acupuncture offers a systemic approach which treats the underlying causes.
When couples have difficulty in conceiving, male infertility is a factor in around forty per cent of cases. Acupuncture has been shown to help improve sperm count, as well as correcting immune factors such as anti-sperm antibodies that can interfere with conception.
As many as thirty-one per cent of men are believed to have issues with low libido. Anxiety, stress, hormonal imbalances and anatomical problems can all contribute, and most of these are eminently treatable with acupuncture.
