Beating the Blues with Acupuncture

Have you or someone you know ever experienced episodes of depression or overwhelming feelings of stress and anxiety? These emotions can be normal for a short period of time when you are dealing with difficult challenges, but they become debilitating when they prevent you from performing everyday activities. Acupuncture can be very effective in treating these emotional problems. Acupuncture treatments cause the body to release those “feel good chemicals” that are naturally produced, such as serotonin and dopamine. These are the same chemicals that are released when a person takes anti-depressant drugs. Acupuncture also helps to relax the body’s nervous system and get it out of the “fight or flight” pattern. When our nervous systems are relaxed, the rest of our body and our minds relax too. If you or someone you know is suffering from a mood disorder, consider trying acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. It may just be the answer you have been looking for.
