Acupuncture For Erectile Dysfunction

Acupuncture For Erectile Dysfunction

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a method of healing that depends on stimulating certain specific points on the body by inserting fine needles. The goal is to modify the sensation of pain and to alter bodily functions to treat or prevent various ailments.

In traditional Chinese medicine, the practitioner first inspects his patient, then smells or listens to him, and finally feels his pulse on each wrist to detect as many as 40 pulse characteristics. After these diagnostic steps, treatment is accomplished by inserting solid, hair-thin needles into some of more than 360 traditional sites that are distributed along the body's 14 "meridians." In typical cases, 6 to 10 needles are considered sufficient. According to traditional beliefs, the body's Qi (pronounced "chee"), or vital force, flows along these meridians. By stimulating specific acupoints, the practitioner aims to redirect his patient's Qi, thus restoring the proper balance between yin and yang, the opposite forces that determine illness and health.

Can Acupuncture Help Erectile Dysfunction?

In acupuncture, the practitioner inserts hair-thin needles into 361 sites along the body's "meridians." Choosing the correct sites and inserting the needle at the proper angle and to the right depth is paramount. The acupuncturist gently inserts the needle until the patient senses warmth, tingling, or numbness.

By stimulating specific acupoints, the acupuncturist hopes to redirect the patient's Qi and restore balance. Western scientists are apt to believe that the needles stimulate the release of pain-relieving endorphins and/or neurotransmitters.

How does it work?

Acupuncture is believed to work by stimulating your nerves, which release hormones, which then increase your threshold of pain. It may also increase the circulation of blood, help regulate blood sugar, and create other health benefits.

Energy pathways through the body allow chi (energy) to flow and heal. Practitioners of Chinese medicine describe acupuncture as a way to unblock pathways and allow subtle healing. However, it is not known exactly how the technique works.

As new emerging technology examining energy flows emerges, we will better understand the theories of energy flow.

The traditional Chinese method of using needles is the primary type of acupuncture that’s been studied for treating ED. It is thought that the release of hormones and increased blood circulation is what helps those with ED.

Does acupuncture help erectile dysfunction?

Though research about the healing benefits of acupuncture is growing, studies are limited and the participant groups have been small. But preliminary results do show a positive outlook for the value of acupuncture for men who experience erectile dysfunction. Here’s what we know right now:

  • Acupuncture works best for men who have erectile dysfunction due to psychological causes (also known as psychogenic ED).
  • Participants who reported improvements after acupuncture treatments said they felt happier and more satisfied with their overall sexual health and performance.
  • Acupuncture may affect the central nervous system and calm the anxiety and stress that can lead to psychogenic ED.
