Men, like women, have their own particular health concerns.

The stressors of modern-day life can show up in a multitude of ways, often as mental health issues and physical symptoms that include chronic pain, high blood pressure, digestive complaints, insomnia and fatigue.

How to Thrive: Build Your Body's Brakes for Deceleration

Here’s where Traditional Chinese Medicine comes to the rescue!

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) encompasses acupuncture as well as other physical modalities, Chinese herbal treatments and lifestyle recommendations.

Acupuncture works by gently restoring balance to the organ systems and brain neurochemistry.

Every man’s health goals may be different and TCM works to systematically address each in turn. Oftentimes, it can be helpful to simply start to talk through some of these different issues with a compassionate clinician to identify health blocks.

A thorough TCM consultation will help clarify which areas need priority for treatment, and a plan is developed with the patient to track progress.

For some men, acknowledgment of mental or general health issues can feel like admitting weakness or failure of some kind. This reasoning for inaction may be personally justified, but does not negate that the health problems exist.

Acupuncture may be just the means to restore your vitality and enable you to be the super human you are meant to be.
