We would like to take a moment to discuss the benefits that men can see from traditional Chinese medicine. There are many conditions that are more prevalent in men than women and can be efficiently treated with the right course of action. Traditional Chinese Medicine can help with lowering high blood pressure, improving athletic performance, recovery from injuries, decreasing pain, improving sexual vitality and performance, better urinary and digestive issues, deeper and better sleep, and lastly helping with prostatitis.
Right now is the perfect time to make your appointment if any of the things listed above cause you daily discomfort or issues. According to Oriental medicine, the cold months of winter are the perfect time to recharge your battery and generate vital energy, or Qi, in order to live, look, and feel your best. In ancient Chinese practices, many believe that humans should live in harmony with their surroundings and with the natural cycles of Earth. The cold and darkness of winter urges us to slow down. This is the time of year to reflect on health, replenish energy and conserve strength.
Winter is associated with the kidneys, bladder, and adrenal glands; all of which are ruled by the water
element. The kidneys are considered the source of all energy or Qi within the body. They store any excess energy (Qi) for times of stress and change, healing, and aging.
Winter is the season where all living things slow down, conserve their energy and prepare for the outburst of new life and energy in the spring.
