Erectile dysfunction or impotence is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Impotence may also be used for lack of sexual desire and problems with ejaculation or orgasm. Using the term erectile dysfunction makes it clear that those other problems are not involved.
Erectile dysfunction, or ED, can be a total inability to achieve erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture can provide a safe natural alternative to helping men with this disorder.
At Irvine Acupuncture we make a diagnosis based on Chinese medical theory, and then determine whether acupuncture or herbal medicine or a combination of both would be the best means of treatment. Both acupuncture and herbal therapy take a holistic approach accounting for mental, physical and environmental aspects. Acupuncture points on the extremities, abdomen and back are used to successfully relieve this problem. Treatment plans generally range from a minimum of 10-20 sessions at once a week.
