Read on to learn how acupuncture can help improve your mental health today!

What are your options?

When it comes to mental health, there are a variety of approaches that can be helpful. Acupuncture is one option that is often overlooked but can be extremely beneficial. This holistic approach can help improve mental health by treating the root cause of the problem rather than just the symptoms. If you are struggling with mental health, consider acupuncture as a way to help improve your overall well-being.


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers a unique perspective on the causes of depression and how to treat it. According to TCM, depressed mood is related to stagnation in the Qi of the liver, kidney, spleen and/or heart. This stagnation can be caused by physical or emotional factors or a combination of both. 

Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are effective treatments to significantly reduce the severity of depression.


According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, anxiety can often be blamed on a deficiency of the Yin,  causing sleep problems, back pain and irritability. Acupuncture works by stimulating the release of serotonin, endorphins and norepinephrine, which are chemicals that can calm feelings of anxiety. 

If you’re looking for a natural way to reduce anxiety and improve your mental health, acupuncture may be worth considering.

Postpartum Depression

Symptoms of postpartum depression can include feeling hopeless, overwhelmed or anxious, having trouble sleeping and experiencing changes in appetite. Acupuncture has been shown to be an effective treatment for postpartum depression, providing relief without the side effects of medication.


For individuals with ADD/ADHD, acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can help improve attentiveness, frustration, and restlessness. TCM is a holistic approach to medicine that considers the whole person, not just the symptoms. In addition to acupuncture, herbs and dietary changes may be recommended.
