Benefits of Acupuncture to Treat Anxiety and Depression
Acupuncture can be an integral method to help treat the symptoms of anxiety and depression. Some benefits include:
- Increases energy and lifts spirits – Endorphins are hormones in the body that can elevate mood. Acupuncture targets neurotransmitters that activate your natural feel-good hormones.
- Treats the entire body – In addition to improving the mind, acupuncture increases your overall health. It can reduce pain and inflammation, calm the nervous system, relieve headaches, and improve sleep.
- No medications required – Treatment without drugs means patients won’t have to manage the negative side effects.
- Safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding – For expectant and nursing mothers dealing with emotional highs and lows, acupuncture is a safe alternative to medications.
