Who We Help

Men's Health

Modern men face a number of health issues due to the "daily grind".  Eastern medicine offers a holistic, non-habit forming alternative to treating patients seeking support for  issues like fatigue, Sleep issues, digestive issues, brain fog, male fertility, high blood pressure, athletic performance, chronic pain, effects of stress, and many more. Dr. Roper and her team focus on achieving balance in the mind, body and spirit of the individual to treat the root cause of a your health issues. Each person’s response to imbalance in the body is varied and complex, and quite deserving of individualized, specific care. 

 

Acupuncture and herbs along with a nutritional and lifestyle plan can help you not only dissolve your current health issues but optimize your daily performance.  It can lead you to more energy, better sleep, enhanced senses and clear headedness.  Many men hold onto stress as a signal of "success" in their work-life but just think of what can be accomplished if you didn't hold that heavy badge.

Chronic stress has been dubbed the “epidemic  of 21st century America”, and for good reason. It can lead to lower functioning immune systems, interrupted sleep patterns, and can exacerbate existing medical conditions. Of course acupuncture cannot take away the stressors in your life, but it can help your body respond to these stimuli in a calmer, more manageable way. Acupuncture has been studied extensively and proven to reduce stress response in both humans and animals, even over extended periods of time. 

Many men find themselves searching for an acupuncturist after being referred by a reproductive endocrinologist or fertility doctor, often to address issues with sperm motility (movement), morphology (form) or sperm count, as acupuncture has been found to effectively help men produce higher quality sperm. 

 

The goal is not to put a bandage over what is causing a problem, but to support your body in better healing itself.

the medicine tree uses a holistic approach for men's health

Acupuncture and responsibly sourced herbs prescribed by an experienced practitioner help treat a variety of male specific issues by:

  • increasing blood flow and raising oxygen levels in the blood.

  • improving sperm quality. 

  • balancing endocrine function by activating certain sex hormones such as testosterone.

  • stabilizing mood and decreasing excitatory stress response.

  • Reducing chronic pain. 

  • increasing energy. 

  • improving quality and quantity of sleep.

 

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine form a holistic approach that treats the whole person and not just individual symptoms of disease. Research supports that it can and does increase sperm quality and targets other male specific issues in ways that also improve overall well-being and vitality.

 

*It is recommended that men seek fertility treatment from an acupuncturist at least three to four months before attempting to conceive, as sperm produced in the body today will not be expressed for about three months.

Testimonials

"I'm a big fan of using acupuncture as a way to stay healthy and "tuned up" physically, but Liz at the Medicine Tree changed my expectations on what acupuncture can do! She is a fantastic listener and has a great understanding of all kinds of issues and how they relate to each other and ways to use acupuncture to bring relief and benefit. I've done acupuncture treatments for about 5 years, and none of them compare to the experience I've had at the Medicine Tree."
