Hi, my name is Bob Linde. I'm an acupuncture physician and registered herbalist in St. Petersburg, Florida. Today, we're going to talk to you about acupuncture and libido. Actually Chinese medicine is wonderful with both herbs and acupuncture both helping with libido for both men and women. Today, we're going to be actually choosing an acupuncture point that's commonly used for male libido. This particular point is located just below the belly button in the center of the body but it's important before we actually do acupuncture to do a full medical intake to find out the reason as to why the libido is going on. In Chinese medicine there is so many different reasons as to why the libido for both men and women may be declining. It can be anything from stress to poor nutrition to hormones a little bit out of balance. So, in this particular case, we're going to use a point referred to as Ren 6 which is commonly used for a variety of different types of libido. So it's important whenever we're going to do acupuncture, once we've already sterilized our hands, we can go ahead and swab the point and this particular point is pretty easy to locate and we can get our single use sterile needles, palpate for the point. Once we've got that, we can locate your point. And normally once we've done acupuncture the needle may be retained for anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes and sometimes even more. But your acupuncturist will decide what the most appropriate length of time is for all the different points that may be in there. You may even apply moxibustion to a needle like this especially for libido. So once that points been in there for about 20 minutes, we can go ahead and remove the point. So, if you're dealing with libido, find your local acupuncturist, is a wonderful source to find an acupuncturist in your area or you can check with NCCAOM. This is Bob Linde in St. Petersburg, talking to you about using acupuncture for helping with libido.
