Premature ejaculation is largely a psychological disorder, meaning that there is little to no involvement on the part of the physical body. Most of the time it has to do with anxiety about sexual performance, or some negative feelings associated with sexual interaction. Getting regular acupuncture for premature ejaculation is a great addition to whatever other treatment options you are pursuing, because of the effect it can have on body, the mind, and the overall sense of well-being.
Using acupuncture for premature ejaculation, you can address the physical, mental, and emotional causes underlying your challenges with sex. Acupuncture is able to have an effect on this ailment because it engages the parasympathetic nervous system, which is the part of your brain that is in charge of relaxation. Many people even fall asleep while they are being treated. Anxiety states are a pathological over-engagement of the sympathetic nervous system (the part of your brain that helps you fight and run away from danger). Studies have shown that acupuncture can rewire the mind with regular treatment, so getting regular acupuncture for premature ejaculation can, over time, result in lasting improvements to your quality of life.
In addition to getting acupuncture for premature ejaculation, we will use other modalities such as gua sha, moxa, cupping, tui na massage, electroacupuncture, herbal remedies, craniosacral therapy, psychotherapy, hypnosis, dietary therapy, and lifestyle modification.
