Community Acupuncture for Pain-free Sex

Acupuncture is an excellent non-invasive and safe treatment option for vulvodynia.

When received twice a week acupuncture can significantly fasten the process of healing.

Since most patients cannot afford it I've decided to embrace this beautiful concept only for people with chronic vulvar and vaginal pain.



What is community acupuncture?

A common treatment model in the UK, USA and Israel that lower the costs of acupuncture by treating a few patients in one space.




What is acupuncture?

A safe ancient technique for therapeutic or preventative purposes by inserting thin disposable needles through the skin at the selected acupuncture points.

In 2017 the British NIHR published the results of 140 research studies review: “Acupuncture is not a placebo for treatment of chronic pain...acupuncture is better than usual care…”



What is vulvodynia?

Chronic vulvar pain from an unknown cause.

The burning/itchiness/discomfort/stinging can arise by the insertion of a tampon, during or after sexual intercourse with penetration, while cycling, long sitting, wearing tight pants or jeans, etc.

How does it work?

The acupuncture treatments will be in a community set-up with max 4 patients.

The selected acupuncture points are NOT intimate (therefore no need to take off your pants and/or underwear) located below your knees and elbows, on your scalp and sometimes around your belly button.

The initial intake and follow-ups are always private and personal
