How Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Can Enhance Sexual Desire

In women, the natural process of menopause, with its subsequent decline of hormones, is sometimes an easy process—but, frequently, not.

This can lead to misunderstanding and confusion for both partners. Of course, menopause is not the only reason for a decreased libido, however. Declining sexual desire can be due to emotional issues, post-childbirth trauma, breastfeeding, menopause, drug reactions, stress, negative body image, relationship conflicts, hormonal imbalances and physical responses such as pain or inability to reach orgasm.

Once the specific pattern of imbalance is identified, acupuncture points and, sometimes, herbal formulas are chosen, and the treatment is applied. By stimulating these acupuncture points, various changes in the body’s biochemistry will occur. These changes are directed to balance the body-mind connection and strengthen the patient’s sexual health. Acupuncture can also be used to enhance or alter several other sexual health conditions in both men and women.
