Can acupuncture help relieve depression?

At Starting Point Acupuncture and Wellness in Bothell, WA, we are commonly asked what can acupuncture and naturopathic medicine treat besides pain? Our response is…well just about everything! Since acupuncture works by using your parasympathetic nervous system to push your body to heal itself, a good “side effect” from most acupuncture treatments is the overall sense of better emotional stability and well being. Acupuncture works to treat depression by finding the root cause of the person’s symptoms, through a thorough assessment, diagnosis, and works to relieve depression.

What do the studies say?

In a recent study in the Journal of Clinical Medicine, looked at the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating stress and relieving depression as an option to help those who are not responding to regular treatments. The study found that acupuncture showed clinically significant reductions in the severity of depression compared to usual care and showed promise as an adjunct treatment with anti-depression medication.

If you or someone you know suffers from depression and regular medication simply doesn’t cut it, give our office a call today at (425) 686-4498 to schedule your consult today with Dr. Heintze today to learn how we can help!
