Acupuncture can be useful in the treatment of depression. Acupuncture balances the flow of chi and blood throughout your body. It can help resolve the underlying energetic imbalance contributing to your depression. Stimulating acupuncture points has been shown to release endorphins and enkephalins. Hence, acupuncture treatments can have a calming, mood-elevating effect. If you are suffering physical symptoms in conjunction with your depression, such as headache, stomachache, or backache, acupuncture can help to alleviate them. You should consult a professional acupuncturist for this treatment.
