Benefits of acupuncture for anxiety & depression:

 

Research suggests that between 1-30% of the global population suffers from some form of anxiety.

You do not have to choose between taking a holistic approach to mental health or a western medical approach because they can work beautifully together. We support your choices and goals and are happy to work in conjunction with your doctor and therapist. You can often benefit from acupuncture even while on medication, and we can work to help support you to feel your best.

 Acupuncture releases the body’s “feel good” hormones (endorphins) while slowing the body’s production of stress hormones, to foster a state of relaxation and tranquility.

  • Releases endorphins (feel good hormones)

  • Promotes relaxation and lowers cortisol
