Acupuncture for Anxiety, Depression and Mental Health
At some point in life, everyone deals with major upheavals or emotional distress. These events can trigger a range of unexpected feelings and behaviours from depression and panic attacks to disruptions in sleep and eating and can manifest physically as pain and discomfort.
Acupuncture can help alleviate symptoms associated with mental and emotional health issues in treating the root cause of the problem by helping to rebalance the body's internal environment. It helps to detect energetic changes that occur in the body and relieve symptoms by restoring equilibrium.
Acupuncture has been shown to increase levels of endorphin circulating in our body. It also improves mood by increasing levels of norephinephrine, serotonin and dopamine.
Acupuncture does not interfere with antidepressants or any other medications; because they work differently they can be used together!
