How Acupuncture can helps Depression?

When we are balanced, physically and emotionally, we can easily bounce back from a depressed state and move on with our lives. When negative feelings and emotions become persistent and consistent, depression may set in.




Acupuncture and Traditional Eastern Medicine (TEM) incorporate thousands of years of experience in treating depression. Not only can they help to alleviate the signs and symptoms accompanying depression,  they can address the root cause and underlying imbalances that have contributed to the problem, safely and naturally.

Depression is considered to be a problem with circulating Qi around your body.

Qi is the vital energy that animates the body and protects it from illness and pain. It flows through the body in pathways called meridians. When it becomes stagnant or depressed, physical and/or emotional symptoms result. Practitioners of acupuncture and TEM are specifically trained to detect and correct imbalances in the human body. Treatments are focused on balancing and activating the Qi by manipulating corresponding points on the body.

By stagnant or depressed Qi diagnosis is unique to acupuncture and TEM.  Over time, if it is not addressed it can lead to a disharmony within our body, affecting our physical and emotional well-being, which may lead to depression.
