Anxiety & Depression
Anxiety and depression
As far as anxiety and depression are concerned, acupuncture is certainly a useful adjunct in those suffering from anxious states, panic attacks and some simple cases of depression.
Acupuncture, although not claiming to cure these mental conditions, can help by stimulating the production of endorphins around the body, promoting the body’s own relaxing hormones which can effectively sedate patients to a certain degree, and help lift their mood.
The production of these chemicals explains why some people can feel quite tired after an Acupuncture treatment.
Acupuncture is definitely an option for those patients seeking help that may complement other treatment for anxiety and depression that you may be having.
