Acupuncture is as effective in treating emotional conditions as physical complaints

Millions of Americans experience symptoms of depression and anxiety. One in ten is taking an antidepressant or anti-anxiety prescription medication. Antidepressants are the most widely prescribed medication, even surpassing cholesterol-lowering drugs. While this may work for some people, many find that the medications do not help their depression for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Side effects such as weight gain or loss, fatigue, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, increased anxiety and others.
  • Studies show that antidepressants are only as effective as a placebo for mild or moderately depressed people.
  • Long term use of antidepressants decreases the body’s natural ability to produce seratonin, which leads to you having to take increasing doses of the medication.
  • You may believe that you are out of balance, that taking medications only masks your symptoms and does nothing to treat the underlying cause of the depression and anxiety.

You want to feel the way you used to feel!


Discover that Acupuncture for Depression and Anxiety Works!

Acupuncture offers a safe, natural treatment that balances you on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level. The state of Qi and Blood determines the body’s balance. When there is an imbalance or disharmony in the system, symptoms of depression or anxiety occur and interfere with the body’s ability to concentrate, experience pleasure and live the life you desire.

Your treatment is based on the root cause of your symptoms; in other words, I am specifically looking for the disharmony of the Qi and Blood. The experience of depression and anxiety are unique to each individual and manifest in different ways. I respect that uniqueness. Through a thorough assessment, the root cause of the disharmony is determined and I work to re-balance the mind, body, and spirit to provide you with relief.
