Painful Urination

Painful urination, also called dysuria, is one of the conditions that we treat the most often at the Nei Jing center of Chinese Medicine. It is a very common issue that affects about 25 % of all women at least once every year. 

With acupuncture, laser acupuncture, chinese herbs, naturopathic advice and tuina massage we can help you to resolve symptoms of Painful Urination

Signs & Symptoms

In addition to a burning or stinging sensation when urinating, women suffering from an episode of dysuria often experience:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Increased frequency or urge to urinate
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Dark, cloudy or bloody urine
  • Urine with an unpleasant smell


Some of the most common causes of dysuria that we encounter in our practice include:

  • Infections of the urinary tract (U.T.I.s)
  • Local inflammation or irritation
  • Hormonal issues such as vaginal dryness
  • Chronic dehydration
  • Urinary stones
  • Certain illnesses, such as diabetes and STDs

In our experience, the following factors can also contribute to the aggravation of symptoms:

  • An inadequate diet
  • Lack of rest
  • Emotional stress
  • Adverse reactions to medication, birth control or hygiene products

How We Treat Painful Urination

Drawing from our knowledge and extensive experience of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we seek not only to reduce acute symptoms of dysuria, but also to correct the underlying imbalances that triggered them or could lead to recurrent problems in the future. After an initial consultation meeting at our clinic in Jerusalem, we will design a treatment protocol appropriate to the cause of your symptoms, using a combination of:

  • Acupuncture and laser acupuncture
  • Chinese herbs
  • Lifestyle and nutrition advice
