Get Back in the Game

Revolutionary acoustic wave therapy boosts sexual performance.

Outside of being about four or five pounds overweight, Elliott* says he’s in great shape for a man who will soon celebrate his 70th birthday.

“I’m in excellent health,” the now retired civil engineer exudes. “The only problem I’ve had has been in the bedroom, if you know what I mean. That’s the only place where I’ve had a tendency to feel my age on occasion.”Stock Photo from
On those occasions when Elliott has actually felt his age, it was erectile dysfunction, or the inability to either achieve or maintain an erection satisfactory for sexual intercourse, that robbed him of his vim and vigor.

“I used to get early-morning erections all the time,” Elliott says. “I used to wake up with one. Then, a few years ago, they started going away or decreased in time or just weren’t as hard. After a couple years of that, I couldn’t get a good, hard erection at all.”
Elliott is not alone in his plight. Studies show that more than half of all men will experience some form of erectile dysfunction during their lifetime and that men suffering from hypertension, diabetes or cardiovascular disease are even more likely to experience dysfunction.

Smoking, heavy consumption of alcohol and drugs (either illicit or prescription) can also cause erectile dysfunction, which is typically the result of circulatory impairment in the blood capillaries or urogenital areas of the penis.

For years, medications such as VIAGRA® and CIALIS® have been the first line of defense against erectile dysfunction, or ED. If those proved unsuccessful, the next treatment option has generally been injections into the penis. If that failed, the last resort has long been a penile implant.

There is now a revolutionary, noninvasive and highly effective treatment called GAINSWave® therapy that treats erectile dysfunction through the use of acoustical waves that is performed in Clearwater by Rene M. Reed, DC, DABCO, NMD.

Acoustic Wave Technology

Dr. Reed is a practicing chiropractic orthopedic specialist and naturopathic medical doctor who specializes in alternative medicine. He recently added GAINSWave to his menu of treatment options because of the great need he sees for it.

“It doesn’t matter how educated you are or how rich you are. When that ability to express yourself in the area of romance wanes, it tears men apart. I’ve literally had grown men cry in front of me over it.

“Most men won’t even admit they have this kind of a problem. But all they’re doing is letting themselves down and letting their wives down. What they need to know is that it’s okay to let somebody know they have an issue, because we can fix it.”

GAINSWave fixes the problem through the use of a small, handheld device that delivers acoustical waves in a series of short, painless pulsations that break up the plaque and calcium that have built up inside the blood vessels in the penis.

“It works like a little pneumatic hammer except you don’t feel it because it doesn’t touch your skin,” Dr. Reed explains. “And once that plaque and calcium are broken up, you get better blood flow. It’s that improved blood flow that leads to better, longer-lasting erections.”

Along with providing better blood flow through existing blood vessels, the GAINSWave treatment also stimulates the growth of new nerve tissue, which is vital for achieving and maintaining healthy erections.

In addition, GAINSWave causes the growth of new blood vessels to occur. That process typically takes three to four months to complete and leads to larger girth and firmer erections that are totally natural.

GAINSWave treatments can also be used to treat Peyronie’s disease, which is what occurs when scar tissue builds up in the penis and causes an abnormal bend, or curvature, to the penis that can impede urination and/or ejaculation.

“By making certain adjustments to the machine’s settings, we can treat the fibrous tissue the same way we treat blood vessels and break down the scar tissue that may be causing that irregular shape,” Dr. Reed informs.

“Women can benefit from this treatment, too, because the anatomy and physiology of the female genitalia is the same as the man. And just like men, when women get older, their labia shrink up, and their clitoris shrinks up just like the man’s penis shrinks up.

“But, just as it does with men, GAINSWave can improve that blood supply and reinvigorate the nerves and put some spice back into their lives and their relationships so that they’re not one of two people just living together anymore.”

Remarkable Results

Elliott’s relationship was nearing just such a stage when he sought out Dr. Reed, who had previously treated him for a vitamin deficiency. After discussing the matter, Elliott and Dr. Reed agreed that Elliott would benefit from the GAINSWave treatments, which he began last spring.

GAINSWave treatments last about 30 minutes, with patients typically receiving two such treatments per week for a span of six weeks. Some patients, such as those with high blood pressure or diabetes, may require more sessions to achieve the desired response.

“For those patients as well as anyone who has been a heavy smoker, as many as twenty treatments may be needed to see a result,” Dr. Reed confirms. “But the therapy does work. More than seventy percent of men who undergo GAINSWave therapy respond to it.”

Dr. Reed says most patients begin to experience a response after about six sessions and notes that they typically experience the effects for more than a year. Elliott is among those who reported positive results after his first course of treatment.

“It wasn’t all that long after I started the treatments that my erections started to become bigger and stronger, and my wife can attest to that,” Elliott says. “It’s been about a year now since I completed my treatment, and I’m still going strong.

“But I’m not stopping there. This treatment has made such a difference in my life and in my relationship with my wife that I’m going back in the summer for a tune-up. And let me say that everyone in Dr. Reed’s office is very professional.

“Dr. Reed is a fascinating guy. He shows a great deal of concern for his patients, and his staff does a great job. I don’t hesitate to say that Dr. Reed has not only changed my life, but he’s made it better. A lot better.”
