Anxiety & Depression

A natural, drug-free solution to treating anxiety & depression.

Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mood disorders, affecting millions of people.  While many people turn to medications to battle their symptoms, these medications come with a host of dangerous side-effects and are only a band-aid to the problem. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have been used for thousands of years to treat anxiety and depression naturally without the use of drugs and free from side-effects.

Acupuncture for

Anxiety & Depression


Acupuncture naturally releases the body’s “feel good” chemicals (endorphins) to promote a state of relaxation and tranquility. Acupuncture also helps to slow the body’s production of stress hormones and allow your body to take back control. Because it regulates the body’s chemical balance naturally, acupuncture can even prevent patients from needing medication at all. Studies have shown acupuncture to produce quicker and more effective results than medications and therapy combined. Acupuncture may also be used in conjunction with counseling, herbal medicine, lifestyle modifications, food therapy, meditation, homeopathics and/or bach flower remedies to further enhance results, reduce stress and balance moods.
