Men’s Health:

Peak Life Clinic offers men the opportunity to experience a natural form of healing with concerns that are specifically associated with men. Be it post prostate cancer surgery side effects, enlarged prostate symptoms, fertility/reproductive health, sexual health, stress, weight loss, anxiety, allergies, digestion, or simply maintaining a healthy lifestyle, acupuncture and herbal medicine can bring symptom relief along with new and interesting ways of understanding the body and facilitating a general sense of well-being and lifestyle. Some symptoms can be difficult or confusing for men, especially when speaking about sensitive matters, so we aim to help you feel comfortable while providing an informative treatment strategy

Fertility and Reproductive Health:

Thinking about fertility and having a child can be a process for couples. Peak life clinic is available to work with both men, women, and couples as they are on the path of conceiving. Research has shown that acupuncture and herbal medicine can benefit couples who are facing fertility challenges. Whether it be low sperm count or motility in men, to irregular menses cycles or even assisting the success rates during IVF procedures, peak life clinic can help with an individualized treatment plan for you and your significant other.

Prostate Health:

This is something that men are hesitant to learn about until symptoms start to appear. If you are experiencing symptoms of frequent urination, hesitancy, dribbling, pain with urination or getting up to urinate during the night, acupuncture and Chinese Medicine provides a systematic approach to the overall body constitution and the underlying causes of your symptoms. We treat symptoms associated with prostatitis, side effects from prostate cancer surgery/radiation, and enlarged prostate (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).

Sexual Health:

Maintaining healthy sexual function creates a wonderful fulfilling life. Many men have concerns of erectile function, premature ejaculation, high or low libdo and even pain with intercourse. Chinese medicine is a way to encourage the body to maintain blood flow and muscle tone that will help sustain a wonderful sex life. As bodies change with age, acupuncture and herbal medicine can assist in reminding the body to flow in all of its parts. Chinese medicine works on a full body approach so lets work together in a holistic way to balance the blood flow and energy to all vital organs which in turn will provide the results you are looking for.

Sports Medicine:

Many people work years to achieve peak performance in their desired sport. When bodies age, injuries occur, or environmental factors play a role in slowing the body down, acupuncture, nutrition, massage, and herbal medicine can assist in relieving pain and increasing blood flow to retain an active lifestyle. Aches, pains, and strains not only affect our performance, it can affect our everyday activities as well. If you are dealing with acute or chronic issues, Peak Life Clinic can design a individual plan to help you reset back to health.

Insomnia, Stress, Anxiety:

Decreasing stress in our lives can be a constant challenge. Along with stress we can experience strained eyes, restless sleep, anxiety, digestive upset, and even headaches. Acupunctures calming effect draws many men to regular treatments to keep their bodies in balance for work, home, and relationship. You can enjoy regular stress relieving experiences that are designed to help you function with more energy and decreasing the overwhelm and pressure we put on ourselves and others. Acupuncture helps to stimulate the para-sympathic nervous system allowing more blood to flow into our cardiovascular system and digestive areas. This is turn creates a sense of ease in our day and allows us to also rest our bodies and minds at night.

Allergies:

Allergies affect such a wide number of people and with each season the different symptoms arise. Regular acupuncture and herbal medicine can not only provide symptom relief, it is also a preventative medicine. It is important to talk to your practitioner about your allergies and the season that you are most affected. Treating allergies before they are in full bloom is the best way to prevent symptoms

What to expect:

Everyone has their own individual path to health and this is one of the strengths that Chinese medicine provides. We treat each person as an individual and will create a customized treatment plan that is right for you. Treatment plans can include acupuncture, herbal medicine, Nutritional advice, cupping, Electro-acupuncture, massage and moxa. Length and frequency of treatment plans will be based on an individuals conditions and severity. Please consult your practitioner to plan out your best path to health.

How long does it take to notice results?

Most patients will notice some form of results after the first treatment. Results come in varied ways including but not limited to, sleeping better, reduced pain, digestive ease, reduced allergy symptoms or experiencing a feeling of contentment. You might find your urine stream stronger, your libido heightened and your nocturnal erections as they were when you were 17 years old. Thats what the patients report.

Do you place needles in the genitals?

For male sexual health and prostate health many men assume that acupuncturists place needles in the genitals. This is not the case. The Chinese medicine system is comprised of channels and meridians that start and finish in the arms, legs, chest and head. This is where we will place needles to help make changes towards sexual and prostate health. There are many points that are used to treat the genital region without actually placing needles in the genitals.  Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is a complex system of pathways and each acupuncture point has certain actions. If you are interested in learning more about this in your treatments we will be more than happy to explain why certain points are selected. It is truly wonderful when patients start to gain results and knowledge about their bodies at the same time. We are happy to teach so please feel free to ask!
