Acupuncture Treatment For Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
The incidence of erectile dysfunction increases with age: about 5% of 40-year-old men and between 15% and 25% of 65-year-old men experience ED. However, ED is not an inevitable part of ageing.
Erectile dysfunction is called Yang Wei in Chinese medicine. Wei means deficiency. Yang Wei means Yang deficiency. According to TCM, Yang and Yin should keep balance in our body, if they are not in balance, our body will get sick. If our body is in Yang deficiency that means our body is not in balance, it’s in unbalance. So our acupuncture treatment principle is to improve Yang deficiency to recover our body from unbalance back to balance. Yang Wei is related with the Kidney, Governing Vessel, Directing Vessel, and Penetrating Vessel meridians, so we treat the erectile dysfunction mostly by using the above Qi’s meridians. Herbal medicinal recommendations may be also made.
The successful rate of acupuncture treatment for erectile dysfunction is over 90%
