Can Acupuncture Help With Depression And Anxiety?
Acupuncturists insert thin needles into the skin on specific points around the body. These points are found along energy channels, or meridians, that run through the body and contain Qi or life energy. The needles stimulate these points and remove blockages in Qi movement. The points also correspond to certain internal organs and body systems.
Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that blockages in Qi flow can cause both physical and emotional imbalances and health problems. Some studies suggest that when used together with other treatments and medication, acupuncture can help to relieve the symptoms of depression, stress and anxiety. Acupuncture is also thought to release endorphins and promote relaxation. If you are looking for a natural treatment to relieve the symptoms of mild or moderate Depression Acupuncture Melbourne can be a helpful part of your overall treatment plan.
