The “IMEDIS-TEST or ”Vegetative Resonance Test

In 1978, a German doctor named Helmut Schimmel designed an innovative style of diagnostic testing known as Vega Test or Vegetative resonance test or VRT, for short. it was based on a couple of holistic diagnostic procedures: bioelectronic functional diagnostic by Pflaum(BFD) and Schmidt and electropunctural diagnostics methods designed Reinhold Voll, M.D. (EAV or Electroacupuncture according to Voll). The difference between VRT, BFD, and EAV is this: VRT uses only a single reproducible point, BFD – 100-150 bioligically active points (BAP), and EAV 500 – 1000 BAP.

Since 1978, the VRT method has been used in clinical practice. This was the year when VEGA, a German establishment developed a prototype of this apparatus known as “VEGA-TEST”. Thanks to Dr. Schimmel and his team of researchers and their 15 years of research experience, now, the VRT method is a very powerful diagnostic technique due mainly to its use of ampoules or special cassettes with test preparations.

The VRT Method can Reveal
1. Different disutbrances among organs
2. Geopathic burden or geopathic stress
3. Allergic burden and selection of the most effective medicine
4. Disruption of the acid-alkaline balance
5. Mineral and vitamin inadequacy
6. Cyst processes

The VRT Method can Determine

1. Biological index, age, etc.
2. The organism’s adaptation reserves, most favorable for the current moment and the fullest possible reserves of the person
3. The magnitude of exhaustion and stress of the endocrine and immune systems
4. Psychical state
5. Mesenchyme obstructions
6. Instructions for use of nosode therapy and seeking key nosode
7. Any malignant and non-malignant tumors
8. Tolerance and efficiency of drugs
9. Severity of physical exhaustion, etc.

Nowadays, homeopathy is deemed to be one of the therapies associated with oscillatory processes influencing human beings. It’s believed that homeopathic preparation influences interaction between wave processes in organism and preparation via resonance frequency. This is the same principle followed by VRT.

The introduction of new integrative criteria of the state of health of a patient makes optimization of diagnostic possible and use of imitation modeling helps to analyze the outcomes of various types and therapies at the testing phase.

Through the VRT “IMEDIS-TEST” the choosing of modes of exogenous and endogenous bioresonance therapy (BRT) as well as the assessing of its outcomes can be optimized.

During vegetative resonance test, “IMEDIS-BRT” apparatuses utilization opens wide abilities and gives the patient the opportunity to use his/her own electromagnetic oscillations rather rely on preparations from test-kits to generate the best possible bioresonance preparations based on the desired criteria. In a similar fashion, the testing and documenting of external resonance-frequency influences is possible.

Apparatuses such as cassettes with preparations for testing using VRT in extended volume have been developed by Center “IMEDIS”.

Procedural recommendations of the Russian Federation’s Ministry of Health Care №99/96 (Electropunctural vegetative resonance test) are the country’s official basis for clinical use of this procedure.

22. December 2016 · Comments Off on EDS (Electro-Dermal Screening) & EDRS (Electro-Dermal Resonance Screening) · Categories: Acupuncture · Tags: ,

Electro-Dermal Screening is a non-invasive holistic therapeutic procedure of scanning to the body designed to identify any energetic imbalances existing within the body. In a lot of instances, symptoms or functional disorders suffered exist in the patient even without any pathological evidence from conventional medical tests.

Among patients, functional disturbances are widespread. They manifest in about 70% of patients in any medical practice. When no damage to the organ or tissue is seen and yet the patient manifests a variety of symptoms, this is a sign of a functional disturbance. This condition can be detected through pathological diagnostic tests or lab work. The function of Electro- Dermal Resonance Screening (EDS) is to search and find these energetic disturbances as early as possible.
If the Screening identifies any Energetic imbalances, it may mean that toxins have accumulated in the body or the body suffers from one or more physiological imbalances. Energy healing practitioners believe that Asyra, IMEDIC and other like devices can identify the underlying problem causing disease long before, perhaps, several years, before it can be detected by Western medicine. EDS devices are thought to bridge the gap between the diagnostic and the therapeutic and generate a much clearer picture of the conditions the body suffers from as well as the best possible treatment for the problem at hand. The treatments usually promoted are energetic frequencies designed to regain the body’s balance and health naturally. EDS is not designed to locate and identify any specific disease which means the no diagnosis can be determined when using this approach.
Listed below are the tests that can be done with EDS:

 Energetic State of 40 major organs
 An Exhaustive Energetic Evaluation
 Cranial Suture Analysis
 Immune Susceptibility
 Circulatory Support,
 Miasmal and Constitutional Influence,
 Emotional Stress,,
 Circulatory Disorders,
 Hormonal Profile,
 Hormonal Support,
 Immune System Support,
 Conditions Related to Menstruation & Menopause
 Imbalances in Metabolism
 Parasites and Infections
 Imbalance Affecting the Musculoskeletal System
 Musculoskeletal Support,
 Neurotransmitter Profile
 Neurological Support,
 Food Intolerance, Allergy, and Sensitivity
 Nutritional Assessment
 Brain functions, Neurotransmitter Disruption
 Trace Minerals, Vitamins, and Herbs
 Sensitivity to the Environment
 Toxicity, Heavy Metal Toxicity
 Dental & Vertebral Profile
 Emotional Stressors, and blocking beliefs.
 Electromagnetic stress
 Geopathic stress,
 and many others

After body Screening has been done, a medium is used to transfer the body balancing frequencies. This medium can be lactic sugar pellets or water that can be applied to the skin or ingested respectively. The truth is, those frequencies are the healing code that is unique for the client. It is highly advised that you update the scan and code every six to twelve weeks for the maximal benefit.
To aid in the balance restoration of your body any herbal tinctures, homeopathic remedies, and supplements to be used need to be tested also. In order to guarantee a successful and better transformation of your life, your practitioner and doctor should give you safe professional support and advice. Frequency patterns, the cause of disease can be transformed to therapeutically effective frequency patterns with Bioresonance therapy.

To avoid time-consuming trial and error treatments, test should monitor the development of the treatment.

How it works…

What is “resonance”? This question can be best answered using an example: when you hit a tuning-fork in a room with a piano, the string within the piano matching the sound frequency of the tuning fort starts to resonate as well. One remarkable discovery scientific was, that cells, in fact, communicate with each other using specific frequencies (wavelengths). Disturbance frequencies can disrupt this type of communication. By preventing this from happening, the person will stay healthy.
With EDS, we can appraise the health of the acupuncture meridians, meaning also the energetic health of the body through galvanic skin reaction – changes in the skin’s electrical resistance, very sound principle in which lie detectors are also based on. EDS also gives us the power to see how the body will respond to various kinds of substances or remedies, All living and non-living substances possess a distinct resonant signature. Each specific tissue and organ in our body has its own unique resonant frequency. We can foretell how the energetic system of the body will respond to these resonances by outputting a software-recorded ‘copy’ of these resonances.
Each person can be treated with remedies that have been tested for compatibility with the person’s specific condition. In this way, the practitioner can formulate the best plan of treatment. Moreover, since we now enjoy having a database of frequencies of diseases and substances we are able to imprint homeopathic remedies in digitized form entirely custom-built for each specific case.
In the foreseeable future, the use of energetic testing will become more and more an option for an effective preventative way order to address sickness at its earliest possible stage.
Screenings In Detail
Food Intolerance

More than a hundred foods are screened including fish, nuts, wheat, and dairy. In this way, we can ideally determine what foods generate physical symptoms such as discomfort and bloating. It is very useful for helping treat weight loss, arthritis, asthma, eczema, and digestive disorders.

Vitamin and mineral inadequacies

To identify inadequacies (deficiencies), all digestives, minerals, and vitamins must be screened. This approach is especially helpful for people suffering from stress, ME, digestive problems and fatigue.

Hormone imbalances

All hormones likewise are screened and remedies to correct any imbalances should be identified. This approach will benefit certain conditions including menstrual disorders, acne, infertility, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), PMS, and menopause.

Full Body Screening

A more detailed type of screening, full body screening is designed to evaluate function of the organs of the body. This approach focuses on the underlying root of an illness and testing remedies to regain the body’s balance and vitality, very appropriate for people with chronic illnesses, those who take long term medication and those who went through radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

There is a Natural, Safe, Effective and Drug Free Alternative.

15. December 2016 · Comments Off on Chinese medicine and Acupuncture Are Much More Inexpensive Therapies Than Western Conventional Medicine · Categories: Acupuncture

Besides being both safe and great forms of treatments, Chinese medicine and acupuncture can also save you money. A lot of people have a misperception about alternative medicine. They think that this form of healthcare is costly when compared to Western conventional medicine. The opposite is actually true. Western medicine is a lot more expensive than alternative treatment. There’s a couple of different ways in which this is true. First, Chinese medicine and acupuncture’s actual cost of treatment is considerably lower than western modern medicine. Second, when it comes to the prevention of disease, Chinese medicine and acupuncture is also less costly compared to the actual treatment of a health condition when it does appear.

There have been a lot of studies that have shown not just how well acupuncture can treat diseases but also on how cost-effective this treatment is. One very good example of this involves a 1992 study that was printed in the Acta Anethesiol Scand. A total of 30 patients in line for surgery participated. The results showed that 8 of the 30 patients were able to cancel their operation which led to a savings cost averaging $8500 per patient.

In 1994, the Neurology magazine published a study showing that acupuncture treatment on post stroke patients led to their shortening of hospital stay (from 162 days to 89 days) resulting in a savings of $26,500 per patient.

One other example of the cost-effectiveness of acupuncture is a study whose results were published in the 1980 edition of the Journal Spine. It was revealed in the study that out of 30 patients suffering from low back pain and treated with acupuncture, 19 were able to return to work while only 5 of the 28 people who received conventional treatment were able to return to work. Helping people return to work meant less debt for them and more savings in money for the companies.

When choosing acupuncture treatment in Tarzana, you reduce your medical costs and save a lot of money. A single consultation with a medical physician can cost as much as $270; if you visit a specialist, the cost rises to as high as $320/meeting. On the other hand, on average, it may only cost you an average of $55 to $70 for a visit to your acupuncturist. Saving a couple hundred dollars is huge for a lot of people. For the cost of one visit to a specialist, you can get around five visits to an acupuncturist.

The realm of preventative medicine is another way in which acupuncture can save you money. Basically, Western medicine focuses on repairing things that are dysfunctional and broken. A few people realize that staying healthy can ensure prevention from the onset of a disease. Eat right, lose weight, and take medicine for the “pre-” diseases (pre-hypertension, pre-diabetes , etc.). In the conventional Western medical world drugs have become the most common way of practicing preventive medicine. If you think you might get high blood pressure diabetes, etc, your doctor might treat you with low doses of the same drugs that he/she uses to address a heath condition when it is full blown all under the semblance of preventive medicine.

Preventative medicine is one the most important fields of alternative medicine. Chinese medicine, at its highest level, is utilized for the prevention of diseases. In China, there is an ancient saying that the best physicians catch the disease before it has showed up and the lowest level physician treats the disease only when it has arisen. An acupuncturist will assist you in knowing what part of your body is getting out of balance and resolve it before the imbalance becomes worse. The illness or disease will start once the imbalance is becomes too big. This restoration of balance and prevention is performed exercise, diet therapy, Chinese herbal formulas, and acupuncture. The beauty of this is that food, exercise, herbs, and acupuncture are significantly much cheaper than treating cancer, high blood pressure and diabetes without the person having to experience harmful side effects.

The essential point is that Chinese medicine and acupuncture are much more inexpensive therapies than western conventional medicine. One is also able to stay healthy more consistently and longer. With Chinese medicine and acupuncture the person will need not have to go through medical treatments.

15. December 2016 · Comments Off on Try Veterinarian Acupuncture To Treat Ailments in Pets · Categories: Acupuncture

Just when some science-based skeptics and critics admit acupuncture renders a placebo effect or chill out a little debunking acupuncture, along comes some bit of news concerning veterinarian acupuncture.

Yes, you read that right. veterinarian acupuncture is now a popular (and getting more so by the day) treatment for pets, and a few veterinarians have had the foresight to undergo training in order to perform these treatments on pets whose health issues have failed be resolved with Western conventional approaches.

Because they don’t have a Western medical explanation for how acupuncture works, some so-called medical experts will merely attribute the efficacy of this treatment to a placebo effect.

They aren’t interested in truly understanding the principles behind TCM or Traditional Chinese Medicine, which are so much different than the viewpoint underlying biochemical- molecular Western medicine.

These experts would be having great difficulty explaining a placebo effect on animals. Maybe Agnes the pet cat knows that the vet is there to fix her lower back so she can walk properly once more. And when her vet sticks needles into her back, maybe Agnes knows that the needles are meant to make her pain go away which would make her walk and run the same way she did before her injury. She may have read an article about acupuncture and believe that it truly works.

One way or another, these “science-based skeptics” will find a way to link the placebo effect to the success of veterinarian acupuncture. These people are unable to go beyond their present erroneous paradigm regarding acupuncture.

Anecdotal Evidence

Reading about or seeing actual cases of acupuncture cures for pet health conditions that Western conventional medicine deems incurable or made even worse by pharmaceutical drugs can be quite a strong convincing evidence of acupuncture’s powers for a lot of people.

One fascinating story about a veterinarian who considered dropping out of acupuncture training after just the first session of class; he thought that the type of science the treatment followed was just too weird for him.

A few days later, he found that his pet English bulldog couldn’t stand up. He went to a vet who failed to better the dog’s condition. In desperation, the pet owner approached his acupuncture teacher who is also a practicing veterinarian acupuncturist and asked him if he could do something about his pet.

The teacher was only too glad to help. So he brought the dog over to his clinic. The teacher-vet did some diagnostic examination on the bulldog and then started inserting a few needles into its body. Within a couple of hours, the bulldog was standing. Needless to say, the pet owner was so much impressed that he decided to continue his acupuncture training.

Washington Post science writer Marlene Cimmons, wrote an article about her pet Labrador Retriever’s urinary incontinence problem that was recently featured in WaPo’s “Health and Science” section. She discussed how acupuncture was able to completely cure her pet’s wetting problem.

After drugs for her senior-aged Lab (who was 11-years old then) led to even more problems, the vet recommended that Marlene try vet acupuncture. As she had a successful acupuncture treatment before, Marlene felt that the treatment may also work for her dog. So she went to a vet acupuncturist where, as she had hoped, her Lab was cured and no longer woke up in her doggie bed wet with urine.

A Few Backgrounds on Veterinary Acupuncture

Veterinary acupuncture may have begun as an offshoot of traditional Chinese medicine circa 1130-770 BC. This was around the time of the Zhou dynasty. The treatment was aimed at war horses and farm animals. This type of acupuncture began to emerge right after its “introduction” in the United States during the 1970s.

The method for precisely diagnosing what acupoints and meridian map to use is quite thorough despite the fact the acupuncture is categorized as a complementary or alternative type of treatment. The vet may ask the pet’s owner a number of questions, perform some rudimentary movement tests on the animal, and even smell the animal’s nose or mouth.

Being a holistic therapy, TCM looks at the whole health picture to find out the underlying problem causing the symptoms rather than merely taking prescriptions designed as a “one size fits all” treatment that furthermore comes with potentially nasty side effects.

Animals show no pain or discomfort when thin needles are stuck into their skin. Cats and dogs, unlike humans, aren’t required to remain still for 20 minutes during treatment. It may not be a cure-all but acupuncture certainly has a lot to offer both animals and humans. And the best thing about it is that it does not come with adverse side-effects.

08. December 2016 · Comments Off on Studies Show That Acupuncture Can Provide Health Benefits to Chronic Heart Failure Patients · Categories: Acupuncture · Tags:

A progressively worsening condition, heart failure is characterized by a worsening inability of the heart to pump adequate amounts of blood to meet the needs of the body. This condition is most usually the result of injuries to the cardiovascular system, years of high blood pressure, or of a heart attack. According to the Heart Failure Society of America, in the US, heart failure has been killing a quarter of a million people each year. Severe fatigue with shortness of breath is one of the most debilitating symptoms of heart failure. A new German study, however, has discovered that a very old non-drug treatment — acupuncture — can significantly boost exercise tolerance among chronic heart failure patients.

Just recently published in Heart, a medical journal, this new study was participated in by two groups of hear failure patients who were being treated with conventional drugs and were in stable condition. The two groups were administered with real acupuncture treatments but only group, however, received acupuncture treatment based on TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) practice. The TCM acupuncture group received treatments that were supposed to lessen inflammation markers, affect the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems, and boost general strength. Treatment received by the control group was a special placebo acupuncture therapy in which the needles merely mimicked acupuncture needle pricks but did not penetrate the skin.

The Outcomes

The patients in the acupuncture TCM group were able to walk much further than the patients in the placebo group. In addition, the acupuncture TCM patients reported far less exhaustion and recovered more quickly after exercise than the placebo group even though the measurable work capacity of the heart was found to be unchanged.

The question then is how was acupuncture in King of Prussia able to improve the symptoms of heart failure?

Heidelberg University Hospital cardiologist Johannes Backs, M.D., noted that past research has shown that the patients suffering from heart failure had the ability to tolerate exercise independent of the heart’s pumping function and this appears to come primarily from the muscles. In chronic heart failure, there is an increase in the inflammation chemical messengers in the blood which is what makes muscles easily tire, resulting in severe fatigue.

One of the authors of the study, Arnt Kristen, M.D., explained to the media that “The level of blood of a certain messenger, TNF alpha (tumor necrosis factor alpha), actually falls after treatment of real acupuncture.” She added that “the positive effect (of acupuncture) on skeletal muscle function can be explained this way since TNF alpha results in a decrease of muscle strength and muscle mass among other things.”

The researchers explained that heart failure is a much more complex condition than previously believed and an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system and various nerve transmitters are involved. This is precisely the reason why acupuncture works – it restores balance into these processes. Acupuncture has an anti-inflammatory affect, enhances the parasympathetic nervous system (relaxation), and affects the autonomic sympathetic nervous system (excitation).

08. December 2016 · Comments Off on Some of the Techniques Used By Traditional Chinese Medicine to Treat Gout · Categories: Uncategorized · Tags:

TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) encompasses acupuncture, moxibustion, Chinese herbal remedies, and other lesser-known treatments to address a wide range of health conditions, including gout. Chinese medicine is a globally respected multi-millennial treatment that in the West, serves as an alternative therapy to Western mainstream medicine. According to Simon Becker, TCM practitioner and acupuncturist, a Chinese clinical study led by Tiao Rong and Zhang Ming compared the effectiveness of Chinese herbs and Western gout therapies. Becker said that the study showed almost similar results (94% and 94.2%) for the two groups treated with Chinese medicine compared to the Western medicine treated control group who besides scoring lower than the two groups, the members also suffered from several side effects, whereas the treatment groups did not. Becker added that when used under the supervision of a qualified natural health care practitioner, Chinese herbs do not have any adverse side effects.

Blood-letting cupping

The use of cupping or blood letting is rarely practiced in the West. However, in 2010, the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine reports that it is used as a way to treat gout in China. A study involving 34 patients suffering from acute gout used Chinese herbs along with blood-letting cupping to treat the gout. Results showed that among the 34 patients, 21 experienced an improvement of symptoms using this technique. Cupping should only be done by a qualified Chinese medicine practitioner. Never perform this treatment on yourself.

Burdock root

Burdock root alleviates swelling and inflammation in the tissues. It can be used as a natural diuretic to remove edema and can help reduce swelling around joints, as well. You can drink burdock root as a tea or use it as a poultice for topical applications. You can also eat the root raw on salads or served like parsnips or carrots. Urban Herbs has reported that when used topically, burdock root can cause harmful reactions. In some instances it has been know to cause contact dermatitis or rashes.


Dandelion possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-diuretic properties and can be used to reduce gout pain. For a topical application in gout, you can make it into an herbal poultice or drink as tea. Dandelion addresses the cause of gouty arthritis which is uric acid by stimulating the excretion of this acid.

Meadow saffron

Meadow saffron produces colchicoside and colchicines, alkaloids that possess diuretic and analgesic properties. This means that this herb can alleviate water retention (edema), inflammation, and gout pain around affected joints. Some conventional pharmaceutical medications for gout also contain colchicine. Due to the high toxicity level of colchicine, patients taking any form of this herb should be under the careful supervision of a qualified health practitioner.

Ermiao wan

The Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2004 published a study showing the positive the effects of Ermiao wan, a Chinese herb, on edema and swelling. This herb has been used for hundreds of years in China to treat patients with hyperuricemia and gout and those with high levels of uric acid. You can purchase this herb from Chinese medicine practitioners and herbalists. It should only be used under the guidance of a Chinese medicine practitioner.

01. December 2016 · Comments Off on Acupuncture Can Be A Teacher’s Best Friend · Categories: Acupuncture · Tags:

Most teachers face a lot of pressure when teaching under certain pressure-packed environments. This can also be hard on the student but even more so, it takes a huge toll on the health of the teacher. With hours spent on walking around, bending over, sitting in front of computer screens, and grading papers, it’s no surprise that a lot of these professionals are left with migraines, back pain, and aching legs. However they can take consolation with the fact there is acupuncture, a solution that can offer them wellness and better health.

For Teachers, Acupuncture in Louisville is the Best Way to Relieve Pain

When you’re looking for a way to alleviate issues such as anxiety and muscle pain, the best way is to try acupuncture. Listed below are some of the most commonly asked questions about this treatment:

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a type of Chinese medicine that’s been around for thousands of years. It involves the sticking of very thin needles into certain points in the body. The needles help stimulate the healing of tissues and multiple body systems.

How does Acupuncture work?

Acupuncture works by activating the central nervous system (brain and spine) via the fascia (connective tissue) and peripheral nerves. When a needle is inserted into the skin, it generates a local response in the tissue. This is measured as nutritional factors, cytokines, white blood cells, platelet rich plasma, and influx of red blood cells. The response is crucial for healing in that it restores lost or damaged tissue and boosts function to the different body systems, including the nervous system, cardiovascular system, immune system, and the endocrine system.

How Can Teachers Benefit From Acupuncture?

Acupuncture’s awesome benefits help keep the body relaxed and functioning at the highest levels of output, increasing overall tolerance and preventing body fatigue, aching legs, fascia adhesions ,and muscle tightening.

What’s the difference between Acupuncture and Western Conventional Pain Relief?

Studies dealing with acupuncture all prove it definitely works, especially for the relief of pain and how it works is what makes it unique and different from all Western conventional techniques. Western treatment processes heavily depend on pharmaceutical drugs to block pain receptors; with acupuncture, however, the internal mechanism involved in the repair of the body actually changes the internal environments, which means that red blood cells, platelet rich plasma, growth factors, and white blood cells all work in unison to restore health and cell function, lessen inflammation, and permanently alleviate pain. That means no more back and neck pain, greater chances of migraine relief, and decreased muscle tension for teachers.

How Frequent Do You Have To Go For Treatments?

In the acute phase of injury or pain, acupuncture can be received up to three times per week, then adjusted as tissue starts to get better and become repaired. Depending on the kind issues of being addressed, treatment for problems can be once or twice a week.

Scheduling an Appointment, Is There a Wrong or Right Way to Do It?

Acupuncture treatment will usually work well with any teacher’s busy schedule. After treatment, you’ll need to eat a big meal and require some time off to repair and relax your body. This will hasten the removal of pain and bring about long-tern positive results.

Does Acupuncture Have Any contraindications One Should Be Aware Of?

For most people, acupuncture is an excellent option. But if you say, suffer from manic/panic disorders, bleeding disorders, a weakened heart, or severe anemia then this treatment is not recommended for you.

You may want to join the more than 15 million Americans who have tried acupuncture if you’re a teacher who’d like to stay away from taking pills for the relief of migraine, stress, back pain, aching legs, and muscles or avoid going under the knife. Who knows, you just might find that with just a few pricks of the needles, you can end up feeling great and wonderful once more.

01. December 2016 · Comments Off on Acupuncture and Acupressure Can Be The Cure to Your Sexual Health Problems · Categories: Acupuncture · Tags:


A scientifically validated remedy for several different health issues, including those related to sexual health, acupuncture is a 5,000-year-old treatment that has been used with or without Chinese herbal medicine to enhance sexual functioning and health concerns for tens of hundreds of years. The overall sexual health of either a woman or a man can be significantly boosted by the use of very fine needles stuck in specific points on the body. This includes the boosting of libido (sexual drive) and sexual performance. Apart from that, acupuncture also solves underlying conditions that may lead to sexual and non-sexual health conditions such as: weight fluctuation, hormonal imbalances, psychological challenges, menopause, drug interactions, and many more.

Besides being a potent tool for treating the whole individual including his/her emotional, physical, and mental aspects, acupuncture in Portland has minimal side effects, has low risks, and give results that are usually seen within a relatively short amount of time; however, depending on how severe imbalances are within the body, treatment times may vary .


A therapy akin to acupuncture, acupressure makes use of a less invasive approach. It uses the same diagnostic tools and acupuncture points as acupuncture but achieves stimulation through massage, not needles. Acupressure is normally performed with the elbows, knuckles, fingers and even vibrators. These all help activate the circulation of blood in a vigorous manner. This treatment can be of use to patients for continuous stimulation in-between acupuncture sessions.

Utilizing Vibrators on Acupoints

People can boost the amount of stimulation they receive during acupressure by using a massager or small bullet style vibrator. One benefit in using a small vibrator is that it gives you more pinpoint accuracy in activating a certain acupuncture point that needs to be treated.

By rectifying any interruption to the flow of vital energy, (which the Chinese call Qi or Chi) in the body, acupuncture provides balance within the body. Organs usually targeted for treatment, when addressing a reduction in libido as well as sexual performance, are the heart and the kidney, along with any other possible factors that may help cause any internal imbalances.

Along with discussing symptoms, your acupuncturist utilizes diagnostic tools to find out any imbalances. Tongue and pulse examinations are standard for an acupuncturist in diagnosing the condition of the patient. Acupuncture transcends the conventional pulse checks that Western medicine uses as it (acupuncture) examines 27 pulse conditions through nine positions. Vital information is provided by these pulse conditions that relate to the overall health of the patient and how well the vital organs of the body are functioning. A tongue examination that check’s its crack, coating, shape, moisture, and color, among others, can determine the overall health and organ functioning of the person.

Chinese medicine commonly uses acupuncture and acupressure; nevertheless, it has also other modes of treatment. These include electro-acupuncture, moxibustion, and cupping that along with Chinese herbal remedies can be used be to balance the body. For sexual health concerns, treatment focuses in boosting blood flow to the sexual organs, balancing hormone levels, and lowering stress. This treatment is geared in enhancing sexual functioning by aiding men to increase their performance through longevity, more powerful ejaculation, and prolonged erections. For women, the treatment is aimed at enhancing their sex drive, better lubrication, and increasing their ability to have satisfying orgasms.

Beyond Sex Drive Improvement

Besides strengthening sex drive, listed below are a number of sexual issues that can be addressed with acupuncture:

– STD infections
– Male and female menopause
– Vaginismus
– ED or erectile dysfunction
– Hypoactive sexual desire disorder
– Infertility
– Female sexual dysfunction
– Prostate problems
– Female sexual arousal disorder
– Low sperm mobility
– Premature ejaculation
– Sexual aversion disorder

The two wonderful alternative treatments of acupuncture and acupressure can be considered when addressing sexual health problems. They not only resolve the symptoms but also address the underlying cause of the problem.
