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.

Are you like me? Acupuncture for Migraines – A Patient Story
Some years ago a client told me her story when she came for acupuncture for migraines. She gave me permission to post her notes to me.
Migraines have plagued me since I was young. The medical doctors haven’t really understood the pain I’m in. It’s a rare day I don’t have a migraine. Until recently I always thought they were all the same migraine but Debra helped me understand I actually get three different kinds of headaches. This is my story how acupuncture for migraines worked for me.
Every night like clockwork I awoke somewhere between 1 am and 4 am with a splitting headache. You too? I know me too. So you try a different pillow, in fact, you go on a pillow search for the best night’s sleep only to continue to have migraines or whatever these head pains are. It wasn’t my pillow.
Then there’s the big one; the mother of all migraines. It comes on one to three times a month and it’s called hormonal headaches. Some doctors told me it was my period, but then why do you have it when you’re not on your period?
Of course, I did the allergy test thing. They put me on a few drugs and the headaches kept coming. Sound familiar? It got to be for me that my week was made up of watching for my head to hurt. Then I tried acupuncture for my migraines.
When I began acupuncture, it took a while for the pain to go away. At first I just had a night here and there without a migraine.
Acupuncture For Migraines Is Natural Cure
While the Chinese names didn’t mean a thing to me, I understood that my body had gotten so toxic with all the drugs I was on that we needed to also do a homeopathic detoxification and cleanse. It made a big difference. Not only did the middle of the night headaches disappear with acupuncture I noticed that my sinuses began to clear up as I detoxified by body.
It had taken about two months before I realized that I wasn’t planning my week around my migraines anymore. Dr. Deb explained that I carry my stress in my shoulders and neck; these middle of the night headaches were becoming migraines during the day. This made sense for me because after a treatment when I had a raging migraine at the back of my head I got off the table and the pain was gone! Acupuncture keeps me relaxed and the tension in my neck and back gone without these triggers I don’t have daily migraines like before.
My hormones played a part too. When they switch on and off as she put it, like when I start or stop my period, and when I ovulate effects progesterone and estrogen levels and that is leading to the big migraines that lay me out for days. The combination of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture has my hormonal headaches gone now for over ten years. The side benefits of no PMS symptoms are cool too.
Sinus Problems And Migraines
The sinus congestion trigger proved to be the toughest. Do you feel like a weather barometer? I know the feeling, watching the sun disappear behind a cloud overhead and pow! A migraine. Have you ever noticed you can be standing on the sunny side of the street but if you walk over to the area where the rain clouds are forming you start to get a headache! This was me, every time.
Now it’s better, of course I know I have weather induced migraines but over the last twelve months of doing acupuncture these are fewer than last year.
While I still have an occasional headache every few months, I don’t get them daily and my life is my own now. Even my husband noticed that I am ready to go do outdoor activities or make plans without worrying about getting a headache.
It’s exciting to me to travel without being concerned about getting sick headaches and missing out on the fun or being on business travel with pain. Acupuncture for migraines helped me and that is why I shared my experience.
Some years ago, a single dad came into my office desperate; he was experiencing back pain. He lived a life full of stress. Feeling overwhelmed he also complained about sinus problems keeping him from a solid night of sleep.
He worked all day, then came home needing to care for his children. Being in pain wasn’t part of the plan. He’d heard Littleton Acupuncture could help him. He didn’t know a cause for his pain it started as his life got complicated, could it be stress?
When we get stressed our muscles tighten. If this continues it can begin to cause spasms. All it takes then is sitting too long at the office staring at a computer all day, bending rapidly to pick up a toy, or throwing a quick football with your child.
Back Pain Relief Helped By Littleton Acupuncture
Then he started having sinus problems. A single dad, with sinus congestion and lumbar pain he needed help.
Acupuncture Helps Sinus Problems
There is a relationship between lower back problems and sinus problems in Chinese Medicine. It wasn’t a surprise to me that Jim’s problems had progressed to sinus problems. It’s a common problem we’ve see if lumbar pain isn’t treated.
I hope you enjoy this video. It’s old and of course done in the office, not professionally.
Denver Acupuncture Is Experts In Back Pain and Sinus Problems
While Jim’s discomfort was in his lower pain many people experience upper back problems too. Types of pain vary too. It can be sharp, aching, or dull for instance. Many people have a radiating sensation down there legs. In addition he suffered from sinus problems. Acupuncture is excellent for allergies and nasal congestion. Relief of sinus problems may include affordable herbs if you live in a dry climate like Colorado
Recently I had a woman with it radiating up her back and into her shoulder blade. A Botox injection for another condition caused the problem. In this case, it led to horrific back problems. She also suffered from sinus problems something she didn’t have prior to the injection at your medical doctor.
Thank you for taking a moment to watch this video, I know the video isn’t the best. It’s the message that’s important. Please don’t suffer pain especially in your back. In addition, if you have sinus problems think about herbal medicine and acupuncture together; we offer both. Remember surgery is permanent, try everything else first – especially Littleton acupuncture.
