Men’s Health: Holistic Wellness Center

1201 Carolina Pl. Dr. Suite 101 | 803-554-4104 | holisticcharlotte.com/gainswave

You’re not alone. Half of men over 40 struggle with sexual health concerns.

Conventional treatment options include pills and shots, both of which can cause serious side effects. “Many men suffer through headaches, flushing, and physical pain to discover that the pills or shots don’t work for them,” says Dr. Ann Meyer, a medical doctor at the Holistic Wellness Center of the Carolinas.

Pills and shots merely manage the symptoms of sexual health issues, creating a lifelong dependency and eliminating the chance for spontaneous fun forever.

This is why the Holistic Wellness Center, located just outside of Charlotte in Fort Mill, South Carolina, treats patients of all ages with GAINSWave. This revolutionary medical treatment addresses the real cause of men’s sexual health concerns with lasting results.

75% of men with sexual health concerns who received GAINSWave saw a reversal of their condition and stopped taking pills to manage their symptoms.

“The science behind GAINSWave addresses the problem at the level of cause,” explains Dr. Meyer. The GAINSWave treatment breaks up blockages and repairs blood vessels for better flow and improved sexual health.

“GAINSWave is simple, safe, and there’s no down time,” she adds. To learn more about GAINSWave at the Holistic Wellness Center of the Carolinas, visit us online. Schedule an assessment call with the clinic to see if this treatment option would work for you!
