Acupuncture and Depression

This week is Depression Awareness Week 2012

This is a great opportunity to explore how depression can be helped by acupuncture treatment. The British Acupuncture Council has published a factsheet with information and evidence.

Just last year new research came out showing that acupuncture is “safe, well-tolerated and effective” for patients suffering from depression

From my experience of treating people with depression, acupuncture can improve sleep, increase energy, as well as enabling them to feel more positive and more able to deal with what each day throws at them.
