Men tend to overlook their health and keep silent for too long when issues arise. Whether it is stress, insomnia, fertility challenges or mental health, men tend to brush it aside as nothing to worry about. Perhaps this stems from a tradition that to seek help for a health condition is sign of weakness.
At EASTENTIAL Acupuncture and Chinese medicine, we believe that men's health is equally as important, if not paramount to the overall connection between men and their environment and relationship with others. In Chinese medicine, men are considered Yang in nature and tends towards Excess, meaning they are more energetic and active. However, within Yang there is a Yin quality to counterbalance the Excess with gentleness and softness. Overtime when both these Yang and Yin qualities are not checked, imbalances occur and health problems arise.
Areas were we can help restore balance to are:
Mental Health - Depression, Anxiety
Skin Health - Acne, Psoriasis, Eczema, Urticaria
Urinary problems - Urgency, Dribbling, Incontinent
Fertility - Sperm count, Motility (Movement), Morphology (Shape)
