Acupuncture for anxiety and depression? Yes, Please!

Updated: May 20



An estimated 17.5 million Americans suffer from depression and anxiety. Among those, many are seeking alternatives to anti-depressant medications.

During these shelter in place Covid-19 times, many of us are struggling with mental depression and anxiety.

Regular acupuncture treatments can release Endorphins, your body’s natural painkillers. An increase in these hormones could provide a natural boost to your body and brain. This boost could bring about relief from symptoms described below:

  • Changes in weight and appetite

  • Inability to concentrate

  • Having negative thoughts and worrying about the future

  • Feeling irritable, tired, or agitated

  • Being unable to sleep or sleeping too much

  • Feeling hopeless about the future

  • Having thoughts of suicide

Patients leave feeling “blissed out”—and a new phrase has been coined in my office: “Acubliss.” It’s real. 

Please reach out to my office, if you are interested in learning how acupuncture can help you regain your mental clarity and sense of well being.


In Health,
