Men's Health

One of the main concepts in Oriental medicine is Yin and Yang. Yin represents aspects in nature which are cool, soft, nurturing and calm. Yang represents fire, heat, fast movement and dynamic energy. As acupuncturists, we aim to achieve balance between these two complimentary partners.

Men's Health Concerns

Ondol-Line-White-Horizontal

Symptoms

Men are traditionally considered to be more Yang and Oriental medicine has a very long history of restoring the vitality of Yang energy to men as they become older.

Some of the signs of a deficiency or imbalance of this energy may include:

  • Tiredness and fatigue
  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Sensations of cool or cold in the body
  • Weight gain
  • Depression

Yang is lost when we work hard over long periods of time, leading to exhaustion. This may be particularly important in the typical type A personality, who is always on the go, using up their Qi and Yang and becoming depleted.

Oriental medicine takes a proactive approach to health. By building our energy before we are too run down due to a busy and stressful lifestyle, we can alleviate the discomforts and distresses that result from imbalances created by this lifestyle.

Fertility

Oriental medicine has developed many strategies to support male fertility during its long history. The concept of Jing or what we translate as ‘Life Essence’ is a significant aspect of all fertility treatments.

Jing is present in the production of sperm in men and ova (eggs) in women to create new life. Strong and healthy Jing equals strong and healthy offspring. With acupuncture and Oriental herbs we can support the Jing energy.

Prostrate Health Issues

Symptoms

Signs of a disharmony in prostate health:
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Dribbling after urination
  • Inability to urinate
  • Pain and discomfort during urination

From an Oriental medical perspective this may relate to a weakness in Kidney Qi not holding the fluids in place, a weakness in Lung Qi not circulating the fluids or a weakness in Spleen Qi causing poor transformation of fluids and leading to inflammation.
