Some common forms of treatment are medication, counseling, and if needed hormone therapy, penile injections, vacuum devices, and/or prosthetic penile implants. With complimentary therapies having gained popularity, more people are also exploring these forms of therapies in conjunction with traditional medicine. One such therapy is acupressure, which has been known to help treat erectile dysfunction.

Acupressure works by balancing the energy (Qi) in the autonomous nervous system, which manages respiration, digestion, perspiration and the heart rate. The belief is that, if the energy is imbalanced in the autonomous system or if the flow becomes obstructed or sluggish, it could result in libido decrease and erectile dysfunction.

Fear is a common psychological emotion that can interfere with sexual functioning. The theory in acupressure is that negative emotion is connected to the imbalance of energy flow through the kidneys. By working on kidney acupoints, negative emotions can be reduced. There are also points that can help stimulate the pelvic region, these specific points work for both men and women. Couples can give each other erotic massages on these points to enhance their sexual activity. These points are:

  • Bubbling Springs - This point is located at the center of the sole of the feet, where the base of the ball of the feet are placed between the two pads of the foot. Scope the area until you find a tender spot. Massage the point, then gently press and hold the spot.
  • Gate origin - this acupoint is located below the belly button, measure four-finger wide widths below the navel button to find the spot. Gently massage the area using your fingers, hold and press the point applying comfortable pressure.
  • Sacral points - you can find this spot directly at the base of your spine, above the tail bone. Massage the area using your fingers.
  • Sea of vitality - these points are also located on the lower back, you locate them using a two or four finger space from the spine at the waist. Do not apply too much pressure on this area, instead gently massage it. Consult your doctor if you have a slip disc or any other back disorder.
  • Mansion cottage - this point is in the pelvic region, it is in centre of the crease where the leg joins the trunk of your body. Massage gently, holding the point for a few seconds.
