Is there a man in your life that should try acupuncture? Many men aren’t sure it actually works until they try it. At my Denver Acupuncture Center, I see many men who recommend acupuncture to their friends because they discover it does work for all kind of things. We have a video testimonial to share below.
Denver Acupuncture For Pain
It works for pain, it even helps you stay healthy. In this video testimonial, a young man shares why he does acupuncture monthly to maintain health.
Living healthy isn’t just something women talk about, men are looking for ways to live longer and stop pain without drugs too. Enjoy this video testimonial. Afterward read the many things that people particularly men use acupuncture to treat.
If there is a man in your life, who should use acupuncture for a health problem this may be a great review for him to watch. Perhaps you’re a man reading this wondering if investing in your health to stay active is important to you; you’ll be excited by this patient testimonial.
Denver Acupuncture And Baby Boomer Men
There are 76.4 million baby boomers in the US and many are men. Statistic says that male boomers who at 65 years old can expect to live about 20 more years. If you’re in your middle 50’s it’s likely to be closer to 23 more years. What if you’re even younger?
You have a choice to take care of your health now by investing in staying healthy or waiting to see what happens. Living a long health life should be everyone’s top priority but is not. We love feeling great and until we feel ill we don’t usually worry about it especially if you’re a man.
Common Reasons Men Seek Acupuncture
The biggest reason anyone tries acupuncture is for pain. Any pain including back pain, wrist pain, ankle pain, knee pain – you get the idea. If it hurts, it can stop you from running, cycling, even playing golf. Discomfort can keep you awake at night, make it hard to work, or interfere with intimacy.
Another problem is allergies. Acupuncture is a popular treatment for food and environmental allergies. This goes along with sinus problems, acid reflux, and other digestion issues.
Essentially Denver Acupuncture works with men and women for many health problems and like our testimonial video says we help men stay healthy so they can fish, hunt, and do other things.
Do you feel depressed, you’re not alone. Did you know about 6.7% of adults in the US suffer from depression according to The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). In this article, you see one of our patients talk about using Five Element Acupuncture to treat depression and back pain in a video testimonial.
Women complain 70% more about sadness and anxiety than men who are less likely to admit to feeling down or unhappy. Five Element Acupuncture focuses emotions, especially feeling of sadness or other signs of depression.
What are the Symptoms of Depression?
The first thing most people tell me is, “it’s really hard to get out of bed in the morning. In fact, I want to crawl back under the covers and avoid everyone.”
Other problems often mentioned are changes in appetite and weight loss. It’s more though for many people. It’s a persistent feeling of sadness, anxious, or “empty” feelings. You have feelings of hopelessness or pessimism, or feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness.
You may be irritable, restless and have lost interest in activities or hobbies you once found pleasurable, this includes sex.
Mainstream medicine often approaches the fatigue and decreased energy many depression suffers experience with drugs while five-element acupuncture is more effective in helping you recover from your problem instead of medicating you.
There’re other symptoms too. What brings on depression?
What Brings On Depression?
The patient who gave Dr. Debra this video testimonial became depressed after her spouse became ill and she was the sole caregiver. With so many aging baby-boomers, this is becoming common. Caring for a loved one can be difficult. If you must lift them or move them, physical pain like back pain can occur. In this patient’s case, her back pain got her to try acupuncture in the first place.
Once in the office she shared how difficult her situation was and the hopelessness she felt. To relieve back pain we needed to also treat her with five element acupuncture for the emotions around losing her husband after a long illness.
Here is a video testimonial – I hope we can help you too.
Five Element Acupuncture
Five Element acupuncture helps emotions by working to bring you back to center.
Five Element Acupuncture for depression is a specialized form of treatment that is pleasant and not available everywhere. I had the wonderful opportunity to study with a great teacher in this method of treatment for mental and emotional issues. If you have tried other methods or you want to move beyond the upheaval and find center again, Five Element acupuncture may be right for you.
Feelings of sadness and anxiety aren’t just something that happens to women or people over a certain age. I’ve helped young professional who have heavy demands on their lives. Having a baby can unbalance your hormones leading to depression and with five-element acupuncture and natural medicine we can have you back to your old self quickly. Don’t struggle, you have so much to live for and enjoy in life, let us help you.

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do that. What the world needs is more people that have come alive. ~Howard Thurman
Do you ever have those moments when everything is going right? I know I do when I’m writing from my heart, everything is right. It’s a feeling of joy and it’s almost as if something else is doing the work. I can’t even call it work it’s so rewarding. We all have something that makes us come alive.
As health coaching goes, we often focus on this because our careers aren’t always the same thing. It’s not always a relationship. It’s usually very personal something that you do. One health coaching client found it to be volunteering at an animal shelter. Another found that setting up bicycle rides with other men after work changed his personal relationship with his wife because he loves riding and she didn’t. He didn’t have to not ride, he had to find riding partners.
What Makes You Come Alive?
The world seems to be at a standstill on new ideas. I believe every idea is fresh and unique because it has you in it. Yet many people don’t use their life to live it. They move through relationships, careers, their entire lives forgetting to be passionate about the one thing that sings to their heart. What I mean by this is we simply exist in the world waiting for whatever it is we’re to do.
What is it that makes you smile and come alive?
Instead, what if everyone you knew spent 15 minutes a day doing what makes him or her smile? What if you did the thing that brings you joy? That one thing that feels so perfect for 15 minutes each day. What would it be?
I am not talking about a bubble bath with candles and rose petals, it’s something that makes you come alive in an ah-ha state of awareness. It brings you that feeling everything is right. Often it has some level of service to others involved. For me, I get calls and comments from people telling me how my writing helps them. For the guy setting up the bike rides, he’s created a group of about 30 men who love to cycle and they appreciate that he makes it possible weekly.
Everything Is Right
Howard Thurman rather challenges us to bring it on; to come alive and do what sings to our internal sphere of self. As a health coach, my job is to listen and let you stretch yourself. I don’t tell you what will challenge you, you find what makes you come alive and then you do that – like Howard Thurman suggests.
When were happy if feels like everything is going right and we sit on top of the world. If we know what this emotion feels like then why do we let negative stressors take us out of this state of mind?
Some authors and researchers believe being in a happy mood all the time isn’t possible or healthy.
They reckon that it slows creativity. I beg to differ as I mentioned I feel everything is right when I am writing. My creative juices come alive and what I want to stay seems to flow easier for me than many others. It’s this way too when a client really wants my mentoring. I can feel it. I know by their questions and laugh or smile that we’ve touched that place in health coaching that resonates with them.
My Challenge To You
Do you want to make a simple change in your life? Something that makes you feel like the world belongs to you.
My challenge to you is simple; what makes you happy find that and do it for 15 minutes each day. I’m not talking careers as much as I’m speaking about life in general. For one client taking a walk with her dog, every day made everything right. Do this one thing for 21 days enjoy the sense of happiness? As Howard Thurman would say, That’s you coming alive.
