Acupuncture for treatment of Anxiety and Depression
Stress and emotional upset are a normal part of life. However, when feelings of worry, fear, anger, or grief become overwhelming or last for too long, they can have a negative impact on the body as well as the mind. Acupuncture can help with depression, stress, and emotional anxiety.
From the Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture point of view, anxiety, stress and depression are associated with Qi Stagnation. The typically Acupuncture point treatment promotes free flow of the Qi to elevate moods. From a western medical perspective, it is believed Acupuncture stimulates a natural production of substances dopamine and endorphins which act like antidepressants and painkillers which help chemical imbalance in the brain.
