Has this worked (or not) for anyone here?

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! :)

Well Acupuncture is used for depression. I believe it can be effective for some people.

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.
