Anxiety and Depression

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety is a general term used to describe nervousness, uneasiness, fear, apprehension and worry that is out of proportion with what might normally be expected for a given set of circumstances. It is the source of panic attacks, obsessive compulsive behavior, and social angst. Anxiety, if left untreated, can create turmoil with one’s body, mind and spirit.

There is no simple one-size-fits-all approach to remedy this complex condition. Fortunately, acupuncture offers immediate, safe and natural relief to diminish or eliminate anxiety symptoms without the use of medications. Your acupuncturist can help identify the root causes of discomfort and offer long term strategies to reduce or eliminate feelings of anxiety.



Depression can become debilitating. Common signs of depression include prolonged feelings of sadness, helplessness, hopelessness, worthlessness, or guilt. Feelings that diminish one’s ability to enjoy life, or cause one to loose interest in activities that were once enjoyed. These powerful feelings disrupt both the mind and body and can vary dramatically from person to person. Like anxiety, there is no simple one-size-fits-all approach to treat this serious condition.

Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) have been used to restore the mind body balance for thousands of years. And, it is recognized by the World Health Organization as a valid treatment for depression. If you want to improve your mood and ease your symptoms safely and naturally, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine will address the the root causes. Treatment will be tailored to your individual symptoms and restore one’s feeling of well-being.
