Stress Anxiety and Depression Management
40 million Americans over the age of 18 are affected by anxiety
350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. It is a leading cause of disability.
Three in 10 American say that their stress has increased in the past year and 20% report experiencing extreme stress, (8, 9 or 10 on a 10-point scale)
The cultural shift in understanding, accepting and treating anxiety and depression has also brought to the forefront the benefits of acupuncture in their treatment. An article published in Scientific American touts a new study finding acupuncture to be as effective as antidepressants, and another study found that acupuncture may help treat the side effects of antidepressant medications.
Acupuncture can trigger the nervous system to produce painkilling chemicals, jump-start the body’s natural ability to heal itself, or stimulate the part of the brain that controls emotions, including anxiety. These results can help you feel more balanced with diminished symptoms of anxiety, stress or depression.
