Anxiety, Depression and Rescue Acupuncture


At Rescue Acupuncture your mental health is vitally important. Acupuncture can change your state of mind and is often used to lighten ones spirits. There is an old saying in Chinese Medicine, that great session of acupuncture is like having the clouds part to reveal a beautiful sunny day. Chinese medicine has been shown to assist with both depression and anxiety. It can also be an useful tool for reducing the side effects brought on by medications taken for depression and anxiety.


Depression and Acupuncture

Depression is a major problem in the modern age and is reportedly only getting bigger. By 2030, depression is said to cast as the biggest health risk worldwide. However, acupuncture can lift you out of those doldrums. “Researchers at the School of Psychiatry at the University of NSW report finding that acupuncture produces significant changes in parts of the brain that regulate emotional states and is a biologically plausible treatment for depression and other neuro-psychiatric disorders.”

Acupuncture effectively balances those factors which inhibits a happier life. By addressing the circulation of Ki, nourishing the internal weaknesses which instigate the very processes of depression in the first place, Rescue Acupuncture can help you.
