Low libido, or low sex drive, is something that will affect most people at some stage.
Whether it is due to a stressful lifestyle, relationship difficulties, a medical condition or simply getting older, finding that you have a reduced sex drive can be worrying.
There are many reasons why you might be finding it more difficult than usual to get in the mood. Some of the most common causes of low libido in men are:
Lack of sleep
Erectile dysfunction or ejaculation problems
Medical conditions such as diabetes, underactive thyroid, heart disease or cancer
Medication side effects
Acupuncture works by using fine needles placed at specific points on the body to maintain both physical and emotional health as well as treating disease.
Acupuncture can help with low libido in a number of different ways. Your exact treatment will depend on what is causing the issue. This will be determined at your initial consultation.
Firstly, acupuncture is an extremely relaxing treatment which is known to reduce stress. It triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural “feel good” chemicals, which help to relieve the anxiety associated with low libido and leave you feeling calm and positive. It also increases circulation to the sexual organs. This is especially important if you are suffering from erectile dysfunction. Finally, it has a balancing effect on your hormone levels, making it a great way to improve your libido naturally.
While low libido, erectile dysfunction and ejaculation problems might be sensitive subjects, you can rest assured that your acupuncturist is well trained to deal with these conditions. Anything you say in the clinic will be treated with the strictest confidence, so there is no need to be concerned.
Whatever the cause of your low libido, acupuncture is a fantastic way to relax, relieve stress and look after your health at any age.
