Ladies? Low Libido? Acupuncture Can Help Improve the Mood!

Get that Spark Back with Acupuncture!

Get that Spark Back with Acupuncture!

If you suffer from a low libido, you’re not alone.

A common complaint for many women is the loss of libido, or sex drive. However, acupuncture is a wonderful ally in the search to rediscover your inner She-Ra!

Acupuncture improves libido but also addresses the reason why it was lost or diminished in the first place.  

Common causes of waning sexual interest include emotional issues, post-childbirth, breast-feeding, the onset of menopause, reactions to medications, stress, weight gain, relationship conflicts, and hormonal imbalances, among other issues. 

 How does acupuncture increase your libido? 
  • Hormones are brought back into balance! The body’s hormonal balance, and therefore overall homeostasis, is thrown into disarray during menopause. As we mentioned, hormonal imbalance (female hormones, thyroid hormones, etc.) can be a factor for the loss of libido, and acupuncture helps to regulate the hormones.  Recovery does not happen overnight, but you will start seeing positive changes as soon as after the first treatment.
  • Acupuncture increases blood flow to the reproductive organs. This one is rather self-explanatory. 
  • Acupuncture improves energy.  Acupuncture naturally eliminates stressors that block energy channels and prevent a smooth flow of energy. 
  • Acupuncture helps to fight off fatigue. Low thyroid, low adrenal function and other disorders may cause low energy. Once the balance is restored and organs are functioning properly libido increases. Acupuncture’s natural balancing effects help to restore regular sleeping patterns. Just a few treatments may be enough to restore your body’s natural energy flow and give you healthy sleep! 
  • We are emotional beings, and often emotional issues can get in the way of feeling free to express all aspects of yourself. Acupuncture relieves symptoms of depression and anxiety. There are a large number of causes for depression, including genetics, chemical imbalances, hormone issues  and other medical conditions. The energetic systems involved will vary for each individual.  Acupuncture often provides immediate improvement on the symptoms present, as well as a deeper improvement on the underlying causes. Sometimes an emotional issue that has repressed a person’s energy and feelings of well being for years can clear up within just a few acupuncture sessions.

Acupuncture is also very helpful for infertility and impotency issues, as well as so many other symptoms and conditions. It is an effective and 100% natural and safe method of treatment.

Digestive Disharmony? Acupuncture Tunes You Up!

Better Digestion with Acupuncture

Better Digestion with Acupuncture!

Bad digestion can make for a bad day. It is estimated that about 62 million Americans experience digestive problems on a regular basis. A digestive problem is a general term that covers a wide range of issues, all connected to the whole digestive tract, from throat, stomach, intestines, down to the rectum. These include colitis, diarrhea, heartburn, ulcers, constipation, and gastritis, among others. Some of these are chronic conditions, while others are merely passing issues caused by food poisoning, a bacterial or viral infection or a parasite in the colon.

Symptoms can range from mild discomfort to acute pain, or can manifest themselves in excessive vomiting or gas. Symptoms of digestive disorders may also include difficulty in concentration, fatigue, dry skin, hair loss, anemia, muscle cramps, low energy, and weight loss. Because of the wide variety of conditions that are covered under the digestive trouble umbrella, symptoms vary from person to person, and can indicate either a minor medical issue or a life-threatening problem.

Digestive disorders indicate that there is a disharmony between the body organs responsible for digestion. This disharmony is commonly caused by lifestyle factors and improper diet, which can put a strain on the digestive system. When this happens over a period of many years, digestive disorder imbalances occur.  The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment for digestive imbalance as well as a wide range of medical conditions. 

Acupuncture corrects the imbalances and regulates digestion. Specific acupuncture points increase gastrointestinal muscle contraction and relaxation and reduce gastric acid secretion, making acupuncture helpful in treating general gastrointestinal symptoms. Acupuncture addresses the acute and immediate symptoms that are occurring in your digestive system. Acupuncture evaluates more of your history and other symptoms as well to get a greater understanding of your body’s condition, and will then choose other point sites located on your legs, arms, back, etc. to facilitate a deeper clearing and correction of the chronic symptoms you frequently experience. Food allergies, and sensitivities will improve.

Diet is a primary consideration, as are emotional issues. Stress, worry, sadness, fear, anger, and all derivatives of these basic emotions will contribute immediately to the digestive system and its ability to “stomach” your experiences and your perceptions. Relaxation before, during, and after meals helps to enable a healthy processing of food. Troubles during mealtime may switch you to a “fight or flight” mode, which shortcuts away from digestion. Meditation is a good practice to help you maintain a healthy frame of mind for longer periods of time.

Acupuncture will give immediate improvements, and a longer series of treatments will help to clear up really stubborn conditions with deeper and older causes.
