Treatments for anxiety and depression

Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental health conditions affecting people today.

These are often experienced as complex set of emotional and functional challenges. Many factors can lead to these conditions, including nutritional, physical, emotional and social factors. A biochemical cause imbalance in the brain is often cited as a cause, but it is not clear whether if the level of neurotransmitters is the actual cause of anxiety and depression or simply a symptom for when somebody is anxious or depressed.

Anxiety and depression often occur together. It is not uncommon for people who are depressed to experience anxiety and vice versa.

Although not claiming to cure these mental conditions, acupuncture can help by stimulating the production of both encephalin and 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 that you may be having.
