Acupuncture for Mood Disorders & How It Helps, Manhattan, New York

For many people with depression, typical prescription treatment options are unhelpful, undesirable, or have unbearable side effects. However, more people are trying natural alternatives, such as acupuncture for mood disorders, and are reporting its numerous benefits. It’s comfortable, relaxing, and patients even fall asleep during treatment. Between the release of endorphins and the decrease in stress hormones, most feel an improvement after the first session.

How Acupuncture Benefits Mental Health

Reduces Negative Feelings 

Over recent years, evidence has been mounting that acupuncture for mood disorders is a successful treatment alternative, shown to reduce levels of depression, as well as anxiety and stress. One study demonstrated better results with the use of acupuncture when compared to antidepressants or counseling, and the benefits lasted about three months longer. Acupuncture can be used alone or in conjunction with other forms of treatment such as talk therapy and medications.  At the initial consultation, the acupuncturist will address these possibilities and discuss what other medical approaches to try as a supplement.   

Corrects Energy Flow

acupuncture for mood disordersAccording to acupuncture theory in Chinese medicine, the hair-thin needles are believed to correct energy blockages and imbalances in your system. This improves the function of the body’s cells, muscles, and organs, and allows the patient's “Qi” — pronounced “chi” — to flow throughout the body. Western medicine, meanwhile, has shown that acupuncture actually prompts the release of the body’s natural painkillers, known as endorphins. Studies involving stressed rats have also shown that acupuncture lowered the levels of stress hormones in these four-legged subjects.
