Men’s health can be defined as the holistic management of health conditions and risks that are most common or specific to men in order to promote optimal physical, emotional and social health. While male sexual health is important, men’s health goes beyond sexual and reproductive health.
Matthew Pajo Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine clinic offers men the opportunity to experience a natural form of healing those concerns that are specifically associated with men or simply maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can bring symptom relief along with new ways of understanding the body and facilitating a general sense of well-being. Some symptoms can be confusing for men, so Matthew aims to help you feel comfortable while providing an informative treatment strategy for you when dealing with sensitive personal matters.
At the clinic Matthew encourages all males to take individual action to improve their own health as well as focusing on appropriate activities which helps to guide their own healthcare. This can be achieved by identifying and treating common conditions affecting men and by optimising heath outcomes and focusing on preventive health.
Preventative practices for men’s health emphasize diet, exercise and stress management, as well as the elimination of risky behaviours such as smoking and excessive drinking. Men can benefit from increased knowledge of male medical issues and by understanding how lifestyle choices impact health.
Lifestyle habits such as diet, exercise and stress control play major roles in the development and prevention of many health concerns affecting men. Chinese medicine for men’s health aims to restore balance to the male body, to prevent reliance on ongoing treatment or medication.
Stress is a silent killer. Long-term stress is a risk factor in many of the major diseases affecting men. Prolonged stress also may lead to ulcers, sleep disorders, addictions, depression, anxiety, and other chronic conditions. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine may help with stress reduction by enabling the relaxation response, which has the opposite effects of stress in the body.
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 can provide a systematic approach to the overall body constitution and the underlying causes of your symptoms.
Maintaining healthy sexual function is important for most men and can help create a fulfilling sex life. Men may have concerns with erectile function, premature ejaculation, high or low libido and even pain with intercourse. The use of Chinese medicine is a way to encourage the body to maintain blood flow and muscle tone that can help maintain and regulate your sex life.
