Acupuncture is a natural alternative to treating erectile dysfunction in men of any age or medical condition.

Often other health conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, anxiety, or depression can contribute to erectile dysfunction. Many of these conditions can make it dangerous for men to take ED drugs. Additionally, erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra or Cialis are not effective for everyone, even if the person using them has no other health problems.

To understand why a natural approach to resolving erectile dysfunction may be the right solution for you, it’s important to comprehend how the Western approach to this condition works.

You may have heart or other health problems that prohibit adequate blood flow to your genitals. In traditional Chinese medicine, we look at the body holistically, unblocking stagnant Qi, no matter where it is in the body.  In other words, stagnant Qi in your liver can block the flow of blood to your penis. When treating erectile dysfunction, we often address the liver as this channel wraps around the genitals.  Additionally, when coupled with dietary changes and herbal remedies, you can solve many health complaints with acupuncture that were not being treated effectively with medication – including erectile dysfunction!

Erectile Dysfuction Portland

ED drugs like Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra are all PDE-5 inhibitors. They block the enzyme that breaks down the chemical in your body which causes erections and produces more of the chemical that makes the penis relax. A relaxed penis should allow blood to flow freely, causing an erection. That, while also inhibiting the enzyme PDE-5, generally makes these drugs effective in treating ED.

You can expect to see a change in your erections after 3 to 4 treatments, with long-term improvement occurring at the 6 to 8 treatment mark. However, treatments must be undergone on schedule, as acupuncture works best when building off the last treatment. Waiting too long between sessions can mean that we have to begin treatment from scratch.

Additionally, taking other medications can mean that you will require more sessions of acupuncture before you see improvement. This is because medication often masks the root problem that we are treating holistically with Traditional Chinese Medicine. However, even if you are on medication, we can work with you to treat your ED – as well as improve your overall health.

Acupuncture and other Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments can help resolve erectile dysfunction.

Amazing progressD.J.

Great service and results we quicker then expected. I would recommend Attunement Acupuncture to anybody without hesitation:)


I just had my second visit and already seeing amazing results. Danielle is very thorough about documenting progress even though I had multiple issues. After the first visit my mid back and shoulder pain was almost unnoticeable. The treatments are very relaxing. Danielle is truly amazing! I recommend her to all my friends.

Results alreadyD.J.

I've seen Dani eleven times for several conditions including pain, depression, grief and one of, mmm...intimacy. (All of which have improved.) The last one of which brought me to Acumen in the first place. I am very pleased with the results of this treatment; the condition of which generally does not bode favorably for a septuagenarian. I had no illusions that I would be anything like my younger self but, what I'm experiencing is much improved from what it was two months ago. I'll be back.

Seems there's a pill for every ailment today (most having adverse side effects), but people forget or are unaware of time proven natural alternatives that work. Things like eating better, herbs & acupuncture. Acupuncture's been used for thousands of years effectively enabling the body to heal itself, run smoother & eliminate dis-ease. Danielle is exceptionally knowledgeable, adept, informative, relaxing & personally concerned. I felt better after first visit. I highly recommend her. =)

Alternatives to pharmaceuticalsD.K.

If you're looking for an alternative to pharmaceuticals to treat an ailment, acupuncture is a centuries old proven method. It helps your body heal itself, just as eating healthier, regular exercise & herbs do...without the many side effects chemicals & pills can cause. Contrary to what you may think, it's a pain free process (a mosquito bite hurts more). I've used acupuncture in the past for various conditions with very good & lasting results.

Danielle is incredibly knowledgable, informative & takes a personal interest in her patients. Her calming demeanor & professionalism is as good as it gets. I saw her for my post prostate surgery condition (ED) as Viagra & Cialis, which are VERY expensive, weren't living up to their claims. I am happy to say I experienced better than expected results after my first session & have scheduled several follow up treatments.

Whether you're suffering from back pain, ED, excess stress or some other chronic health dis-ease, I'd highly recommend seeing Danielle.
