“I WILL DEVOTE MY ENERGY TO A LIFETIME OF HEALING THROUGH ACUPUNCTURE”
Dr. Shan Kong




“THERE WERE FOUR THINGS WHICH THE MASTER TAUGHT—LETTERS, ETHICS, DEVOTION OF SOUL, AND TRUTHFULNESS"
Confucius
(552 B.C.—479 B.C.)








Acupuncture for Impotence (Erectile Dysfunction) (ED)

Impotence or erectile dysfunction (ED) is sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual activity in humans. The impotence may develop due to hormonal deficiency, disorders of the neural system, lack of adequate penile blood supply, drug side effects or psychological problems. The most important organic causes of impotence are cardiovascular disease and diabetes, neurological problems (for example, trauma from prostatectomy surgery).

How does acupuncture work for Impotence

Acupuncture can stimulate nerve system to create peripheral nerves, the lower parts of the spinal cord and the limbic system of the brain working sufficiently to achieve a successful and complete erection. Simultaneously promote the secretion of nitric oxide (NO), which causes the relaxation of smooth muscles of corpora cavernosa (the main erectile tissue of penis), and blood flow to penile accelerating penile erection.

Additionally, acupuncture helps increase the levels of testosterone (produced by the testes) and the function of intact pituitary gland to develop a healthy erectile system. Also, acupuncture can treat the underlying causes.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
