Acupuncture For Depression/anxiety

5 posts in this topic

Posted

I'm really considering doing acupuncture for depression and social anxiety. I figure it can't be a bigger waste of money than counseling was for me! I'm so ready to get my life back (actually for it to begin)!

Has this worked (or not) for anyone here?

I've never heard of acupuncture used for depression or anxiety, so I would be also curious if this has worked. I wish you all the best in reclaiming your life from the clutches of depression and anxiety.

Hi,

Some years ago, I was going through an episode of severe anxiety and depression (situational), and i attended a holistic clinic where I received acupuncture as part of my treatment. The acupuncturist used needles in my scalp. I felt marvellous during and sfter the treatments: it was like letting steam out of a pressure cooker.

I've also had acupuncture for other ailments, too. And it worked very quickly and effectively.

I must admit that if I could afford it, I would be seeking acupuncture treatment to help me with the medication withdrawal problems I'm currently experiencing: my whole system feels completely off kilter. Bearing in mind that acupuncture is all about bringing the body into balance, the acupuncture treatment could go a long way to calming your body, and thus help to calm your mind.

If you can afford the treatment, I'd certainly recommend trying it. No side effects! :)

Hi,

I tried accupunture once for my depression/anxiety but

it did nothing for me except caused numbness in my

arms where she put some of the needles. Maybe it

would have worked if I have continued on longer - I

dont know. I hope it works for you. Now I am on a

combo of meds that has me feeling really good - I

hope you find something that works for you.

best wishes,

starr
