An estimated 18 million American suffer from Depression, making it a major topic of public health that has a substantial impact on individuals and on society as a whole. As the year progresses many experience feelings of dread as the annual phenomenon known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) accompanies the change of seasons and we experience periods of darker days.
Acupuncture has been around for over 2,500 years, working to help clear the body’s energetic highway of blocks, which can lead to imbalances in emotions, organ functionality, sleep habits and more. Inclusively, Acupuncture has the ability to change how the entire body responds to stress, anxiety, and dis-ease, which can loosen the grip that depression takes on individuals.
Acupuncture for depression works to:
- Naturally increase levels of serotonin in the brain
- Restore the body’s natural energy balance
- Reduce levels of stress and stress-related hormones
- Beneficially affect overall mood and wellbeing
