Sexual Dysfunction

You probably assume that sexual health issues like low libido, impotence, painful intercourse, or difficulty having an orgasm, are only related to the function of your sex organs. You’ll be surprised to learn that a more holistic whole-body approach of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine can drastically improve your sexual health, desire for intimacy, and overall well-being.

In fact, acupuncture is one of the most common treatments in Chinese medicine to improve a man or woman’s sexual health.

Studies show that approximately 43% of women and 31% of men experience sexual dysfunction at some point in their life. There are a number of factors that can interfere with a healthy sex life. Your hormones regulate your arousal and your sex drive. Stress, diet, medications, or a lowered immunity are a few of the common factors that can tip your hormones out of balance, and cause sexual dysfunction.

Improves Circulation

Acupuncture can improve circulation around reproductive organs and other organs, like your kidneys, that play important roles in sexual health. Improved circulation enhances your senses as well, which is key for sexual arousal.

Impacts Central Nervous System

Your central nervous system plays an important role in sensation with involuntary functions like blood flow, body temperature, and blood pressure. Relaxing your nervous system is the first step toward better health and improved sexual health.
