At one time or another most of us will experience some form of depression. Depression is easy to bounce back from if you are balanced physically and emotionally, but when negative feelings such as sadness, worry, anxiety, stress induced fatigue, and discouragement become constant and persistent, depression may set in. More than 28 million Americans turn to anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs to cope with their depression. These drugs come with several unwanted side-effects, as well as the hassle of having to take them on a daily basis in order to alleviate the symptoms of depression. Acupuncture can help to alleviate the symptoms associated with depression as well as help uncover and treat the underlying cause of depression with out side-effects. Acupuncturists are aware of the powerful interplay that our body and emotions, and that the two are inseparable. Our emotions have a direct effect on the internal environment of our bodies and vise versa, both lead to disharmony within our body. Acupuncture addresses both the physical and emotional well being, dealing with the root problem causing depression. A unique treatment plan will be developed to your specific symptoms; it may also incorporate Herbal Medicine, meditative exercises, and stress relief techniques to help restore the body’s harmony.
