Low Libido

Low libido, also know as low sex drive and hypoactive sexual desire disorder, refers to a lack of desire to engage in any sexual activity. If the change in sexual desire is sudden or prolonged, it can cause acute feelings of distress and frustration for the sufferer, and even put strain on a relationship.

With acupuncture, laser acupuncture, chinese herbs, naturopathic advice and tuina massage we can help you to resolve symptoms of low sex drive.

People Say

I never thought I’d do acupuncture for my libido, but nothing else I tried before has worked, so I thought, why not? It was affecting my marriage, especially since I wasn’t enjoying sex much as a result, and was starting to feel pain every time. The first session was very reassuring, so I decided to go with it. I did a few sessions of acupuncture, and I’m happy to say that things are improving now.

People Say

I went to Nei Jing on a friend’s recommendation, with low energy issues, but mostly my libido had disappeared completely for several months. I did an acupuncture session right after the first meeting. I didn’t expect anything to happen right away, and didn’t feel very different that evening - just tired! -, but the next morning I had a spontaneous erection, which hadn’t happened in a while. Things have been becoming better since, little by little, and I’ll definitely go to the follow-up sessions.
