Doctor and Patient
Men's Health
Many men find it difficult to talk about their health or place importance on it. Let's change this. 

Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of men's health concerns. We recommend seeing one of our therapists to talk about what is going on and whether acupuncture may be able to help. Our practitioners will ask about any medical tests or diagnosis you have been given and also what symptoms you are experiencing and for how long.  

One of the more common conditions we see in clinic is prostate issues *benign prostatic hyperplasia), which affects many men over age 50.  Our goal is to help non-surgically with prostate inflammation and urinary flow and comfort. We expect to treat people twice a week for 6 weeks. 

Men's fertility is sometimes overlooked when couples are trying to conceive, and research shows that the use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is useful for helping improve sperm quality.
