Sexual Problems

Sexual Problems

For millennia, Chinese physicians have seen healthy sexual functioning as an important aspect of their patient’s health consequently Traditional Chinese Medicine has a sophisticated understanding of human sexuality and sexual problems.  These problems are, more often than not, symptomatic of an underlying imbalance in the person’s energy, or Qi, hence the Traditional Chinese Medical approach to sexual problems is a holistic one.

Because of the sensitive nature of some of these problems for some people, emotional issues are also frequently involved, either as part of the cause of the problem, or as a consequence of it.  Our approach will aim to address these as well as any more functional aspects.

We have both male and female practitioners at the clinic, and you can rest assured that you will be treated professionally and with sensitivity.

The Sean Barkes Clinic does not claim to cure any conventional medical disease states.  Traditional Chinese Medicine seeks to re-establish and maintain the harmonious function of the human body-mind using tried and tested principles that have been discovered and matured over millennia.  A Western medical diagnosis provides very little by way of insight in informing a Chinese Medical diagnosis.  Patients usually recognise their own condition in terms of the medical disease category that they have been given by their GP or other conventional medical practitioner.  The research presented here is merely an indication of the potential to draw parallels between Traditional Chinese Medicine and Modern Western Medicine.
