Men’s Health & Acupuncture in Thousand Oaks, CA

Caring for your health and well-being is important for all the stages of your life. While it can sometimes be difficult to talk with your doctor or practitioner about issues such as prostate conditions, erectile dysfunction or infertility, it is important to be open and honest. After all, these concerns can have a major impact on your overall health as well as your sex life, your relationships, and emotional health. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine [TCM] offer powerful tools to help you feel your best. They have been used for thousands of years to treat men’s health concerns and they can be safely used along with Western Therapies.

Men's Health and Acupucnture


The Prostate is a walnut sized gland that sits beneath the bladder and surrounds the urethra. It produces semen, the milky –colored fluid that transports sperm during ejaculation. Prostatitis is the inflammation of the prostate that can cause urinary symptoms and pelvic pain. The most common type is chronic nonbacterial prostatitis. Its causes are unknown, making it difficult to treat. Symptoms may include a frequent and urgent need to urinate, pain or a burning sensation when urinating or pain in the pelvic area, lower back and genital area. Acupuncture Thousand Oaks and TCM can help alleviate and treat prostatitis symptoms.

Male depression

Depression is experienced in both men and women. Men tend to exhibit and report feelings of fatigue, frustration, irritability, lack of concentration, sleep disturbance and loss of interest in work and social activities. Profound emotional feelings such as sadness, guilt and grief are acknowledged more by women more than men. Our Acupuncture service in Thousand Oaks can help calm the mind and body, reduce stress, anxiety and help with male symptoms of depression.

Erectile Dysfunction[ED]

ED is the inability to sustain an erection suitable for sexual intercourse at least 25% of the time. It is a common condition that happens to most men at some time during their lives, but ongoing problems could indicate a more serious issue. ED can be caused by conditions such as heart disease, clogged blood vessels, atherosclerosis, or diabetes. Other possible causes include medications, stress, depression, and anxiety. Acupuncture can be helpful in boosting and supporting sexual stamina.


Most cases of male infertility are related to a low concentration, poor quality or poor movement of sperm. Studies have shown that acupuncture can improve sperm production and quality, as well as help increase the chances of success when used in conjunction with
Western reproductive technology. Acupuncture and TCM can also help both partners deal with the emotional aspects of struggling to conceive.

Male Menopause [MM]

This is also referred to as androgen decline. As men age, there becomes a decline in the production of testosterone, the male hormone. When this happens, symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, depression, mood changes and sexual problems may appear. Thousand Oaks Acupuncture and Herbal Therapy can support men as they age and eliminate symptoms and sigs related to MM
