Healing Beyond Behavior: Embracing Asian Medicine for Sexual Addiction Recovery in Beaverton, Oregon
Finding Peace Beyond the Compulsion: Acupuncture for Sexual Addiction
Sexual addiction, often misunderstood and shrouded in shame, can wreak havoc on individuals and their loved ones. While traditional therapeutic approaches can be valuable for many seeking holistic paths to recovery, Asian medicine offers a unique and powerful ally.
Enter Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist practicing in Beaverton, Oregon. Dr. Sohn draws upon not just Traditional Chinese Medicine but the vast wisdom of various Asian medical traditions, crafting personalized acupuncture and herbal protocols to help individuals break free from the compulsive cycle of sexual addiction.
“My approach goes beyond addressing symptoms,” Dr. Sohn explains. “It’s about restoring balance within the whole person, mind, body, and spirit, as understood through the lens of Asian medicine.”
Acupuncture, a cornerstone of many Asian medical traditions, is pivotal in Dr. Sohn’s approach. By strategically inserting fine needles at specific points in the body, acupuncture regulates energy flow (Qi) and addresses underlying imbalances that contribute to the addictive cycle.
