A lot of people ask me if acupuncture can help treat emotional symptoms such as depression and anxiety. The answer is yes, but each individual has a unique set of symptoms all of which are clues of a deeper layer of imbalance. In Chinese Medicine we treat patterns of disharmony, not individual symptoms. Two people coming in for depression may end up with 2 different treatment plans. This is because anxiety and depression are usually symptoms of an underlying condition, not necessarily a disease by themselves. My goal as an acupuncturist is to find and correct the root cause of the patterns of disharmony you are expressing.
