Please take a listen to an excerpt from Phil’s conversation with Michael F. Kay of Chapter X during a podcast recorded earlier this year (https://michaelfkay.com/chapterx_podcast/phil-veneziano/), as they discuss Seven Point Wellness’ approach to Men’s Health via Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.

MEN’S HEALTH – PROGRESSING THROUGH A LIFETIME

The therapies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have shown benefit for men throughout the many shifts in their lives, addressing a variety of challenges that emerge as life unfolds and adolescence evolves to young adulthood and matures through to their elder years.

 

At Seven Point Wellness we commonly treat men of a variety of ages, and while anyone can sprain an ankle, have a stiff neck or lower back pain - beyond the orthopedic issues that we typically see - each age brings its own clear and distinct “other” issues for us to treat.

ADOLESCENT HEALTH THROUGH EARLY ADULTHOOD

This is a time of many questions and much exploration for young guys. It can be exciting to know that the world lays before you, but intimidating for some.

 

These are guys are on the precipice of discovering who they are inside, how they fit into the social construct of school, sports, arts, growing exponentially as they move into young adulthood.

 

At the same time peer pressure, parental expectations, and emerging hormones can weigh heavily as these high schoolers morph into navigating college choices, finding their true calling in the work force and their eventual independence. Management of these internal musings often brings discomfort that we at Seven Point Wellness can help to balance.

COMMONLY TREATED CONCERNS INCLUDE

  • Anxiety/Depression/Mood imbalance

  • Exhaustion

  • Insomnia

  • Muscular injuries due to overworking/overtraining

  • Sexual Health

  • Drug/alcohol overindulgence

ADULTHOOD AND BEYOND

As men approach their peak and reproductive years in their 20’s and 30’s, they may plan to start a family, buy a home and plant their feet, or, as has been common over the past 50 years, this becomes a time to “spread their wings”.

 

While travel, job change and ascension up the proverbial ladder can bring excitement and enrichment, it can also take its toll. This can bring a great deal of growth, or similar emotional injuries as in the previous period of adolescence to early adulthood.

 

Again, we at Seven Point Wellness can help guys move through this part of their lives with a more balanced approach.

COMMONLY TREATED CONCERNS INCLUDE

  • Anxiety / Depression / Insomnia

  • Drug / Alcohol overindulgence

  • Exhaustion from overworking at their jobs

  • Metabolism and dietary changes, resulting in weight gain

  • The slowing resolve of orthopedic injuries

THE FORTIE’S THROUGH SIXTIES                AND BEYOND…

Body functions will start to shift and decline during the next few decades. Vision, agility, and cardiac functions like blood pressure should therefore be monitored and any chronic issues addressed. Musculoskeletal injuries will stick around longer and acute injuries like hernias, strains, and sprains will present more often.

 

This may seem like the end of the road for some, but instead, it can be a great opportunity to develop a preventative strategy that can forestall and reduce the severity of this decline.

 

This along with a deeper connection to oneself and the maintenance of a vital curiosity for the future will guide the rest of a man’s life. At Seven Point Wellness, our goal is to help men age well, age gracefully, and look forward to their later years with maximum vitality and ease.

COMMONLY TREATED CONCERNS INCLUDE

  • Urogenital changes

  • Cardiovascular and respiratory maintenance

  • Musculoskeletal and Neuromuscular issues – affecting balance and agility

  • Bone strength and density
