The study, by researchers from Harvard University, builds on earlier research by the scientists that found that impotence, or erectile dysfunction, was more common among older men with restless legs syndrome -- and the more frequent the symptoms of the sleep disorder the higher the risk of impotence.Men who experienced restless legs syndrome symptoms up to 14 times a month were 68% more likely to struggle with erectile dysfunction, the study found.
Restless leg syndrome is a disorder in which there is an urge or need to move the legs to stop unpleasant sensations.New research:There was no significant difference for the reduction in either the longest or the shortest duration of RLS and There is insufficient evidence to determine whether acupuncture is an efficacious and safe treatment for RLS(1)While restless legs is a lifelong problem, treatment such as this can improve patients chances of restful sleep. Focus patient's attention here rather than on acupuncture.But Another trial found thatacupuncture used in combination with medications and massage was more effective than medications and massage alone, in terms of remission of unpleasant sensations in the legs.
so that is why Zak acupuncture can help restless legs ayndrome,not general acupuncture.

In 2009 South Korean scientists conducted a systematic review of studies on acupuncture for ED. They found major design flaws in all of the studies, concluding that "the evidence is insufficient to suggest that acupuncture is an effective intervention for treating ED."
So,The Evidence is insufficient to suggest that acupuncture is effective intervention for treating ED and Restless legs syndrome. What's your experience?
