Sexual Health May Improve With Acupuncture Treatments

Low libido, impotence, or difficulty having an orgasm aren’t always strictly related to sexual function or sex organs — they can also be influenced by our mental and emotional state or an underlying health issue. For that reason, many people turn to acupuncture, a traditional Chinese medicine practice of penetrating the skin with tiny stainless steel needles, for its holistic approach to sexual health and well-being.

Acupuncture is one of the most common treatments used in traditional Chinese medicine to help improve a person’s sexual health, and a growing body of evidence indicates that it may help in improving libido, sexual dysfunction, and some underlying issues that can make sex less pleasurable.

“We often have people come in for an issue that’s related to sexual health,” says Joseph Alban, a doctor of acupuncture and New York State–licensed acupuncturist who has been practicing for nearly two decades at Alban Acupuncture in New York City.

“It can be for a primary issue, such as poor libido or premature ejaculation, or related to an underlying health issue, like pelvic pain or endometriosis,” he says.
