Acupuncture for anxiety and depression addressed the body, mind, and emotional issues which lead to the negative condition in the first place. Acupuncture is used to create harmony and balance from within using the meridian points.
The acupuncture treatment in usually done in parts, addressing various parts of the body, within a 45 minute – 1 hour session. Starting with an inquiry as to the current state of mind of the individual, and then followed by a “reading” of the tongue and pulse.
For a period of about 10 minutes, needles are inserted into certain points on the back of the individual followed by other points around the back of the body like the lung area – for arresting any grief issues, the heart area for treating the absence of joy, liver points for anger and depression, and kidney points for fear or shock.
Then the patient is turned over and other points are addressed for energy and to settle the spirit. In addressing this, the needles are then placed on the lower arms, the lower legs, and stomach and head areas. Sometimes needles are also inserted into the areas near and around the ears to balance the brain to create a sense of well being.
Most people using acupuncture as a form to find some relief from their anxiety and depression issues attest to feeling lighter, happier, and free after attending these sessions. It should be noted here that sometimes it may take more than a few sessions to achieve the desired results.
