Acupuncture is renowned for its efficacy in treating a wide range of gynecological disorders, often yielding impressive results. However, its benefits are not limited to female health; acupuncture is equally beneficial for men, addressing their unique physiological and pathological needs. Clinical research has demonstrated acupuncture's effectiveness in treating male health issues such as impotence, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and enhancing sperm quality.

This course offers an in-depth exploration of the most effective acupuncture points and techniques specifically tailored for male health issues. A special focus will be placed on benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), impotence, and male infertility.

By the end of this course, you will gain:

  • A thorough understanding of, and treatment strategies for, stabilizing or improving BPH, while mitigating its numerous side effects and consequences.

  • Comprehensive insights into the various factors behind erectile dysfunction/impotence and strategies for its effective treatment.

  • A deep understanding of male fertility from the perspective of Chinese Medicine, along with practical techniques to enhance sperm quality and address underlying causes.

This course is designed for:

Acupuncture practitioners or students who are seeking practical, effective tools for treating male clients with prostate, potency issues, and infertility. Anyone interested in expanding their acupuncture knowledge with a focus on men's health is welcome.
