Acupuncture for Conditions of the Pelvis

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine provide a holistic approach to healing and are effective treatments to relieve the pain and discomfort, improve sexual function, and decrease urinary problems. Additionally, Acupuncture is a natural treatment with very few side effects.

Chinese medicine’s is over 2000 years old and has a long history of treating pelvic issues. Traditional Chinese Medicine has a holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment, identifying specific imbalances in the body and using acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and acupressure to correct them.

Treating the root

We will consider symptoms of pain, urinary changes, sexual dysfunction, as well as digestion, energy, sleep are all factored into identifying the cause of the issues. Correcting the imbalance does not just treat the symptoms or mask the condition, but rather corrects the root of the problem by encouraging self-healing of the body.We say that acupuncture helps to correct the underlying imbalance in the body leading to long term improvement.

Modern research has shown that acupuncture reduces pain and inflammation through regulating neural pain pathways, stimulating the release of natural pain relievers in the body, such as opioids, as well as regulating pain relieving opioid receptors. Many studies have also shown acupuncture to have a anti-inflammatory effect, reducing the circulating inflammatory hormones in the blood

Acupuncture Therapies Work in Combination

Chinese medicine works best as a combination therapy that includes acupuncture, tui na (acupressure), and other therapies such as gua sha and cupping. Chinese herbs are also effective and may be required for certain people. Acupuncture diagnosis and treatment focuses on identifying the specific root imbalance causing the condition and tailoring the treatment for you.

What is a visit like?

During the first visit, we will take your medical history and complete an examination to create your treatment plan. During this visit, you will have an opportunity to ask questions about your condition and you will receive an acupuncture treatment. We may also discuss Chinese herbs and manual therapies such as acupressure, gua sha, or cupping as an option in your treatment plan.

Feedback From our clients…

“I came to Joe because I was suffering from prostatitis and my urologist suggested that I give acupuncture a try. After searching in New York I learned that Joe had a lot of experience with pelvic pain patients, so I decided to give him a try. Joe is incredibly knowledgeable in the ways of Eastern medicine, having gone straight to the source and studied in China. He can also talk about the modern scientific theories of why acupuncture is effective. I felt confident that I was getting acupuncture treatments from someone with the utmost expertise. I have to say I’m feeling much, much better. Joe also treated and improved the anxiety I had stemming from my prostate problems. Thanks a lot Joe!”
