Acupuncture and Anxiety
by Guinevere Crescenzi, Licensed Acupuncturist
Acupuncture is very effective for treating the symptoms of anxiety and depression. Numerous studies have shown that it is an exceptionally useful tool either in combination with western pharmaceuticals and therapy or as a stand alone method. When used in combination with pharmaceutics, acupuncture reduces unpleasant side effects from the medicine.
If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, we will discuss your symptoms and develop a personalized treatment strategy. You may be given homework and nutritional advice based on Chinese medical theory.
Patients have told me that they notice that they are calmer, less worried, less depressed, and have an easier more positive outlook on their lives. Many have also reported they feel results almost immediately, but this is not always the case.
