Can Acupuncture Improve Depression Symptoms?

Home » Chinese Medicine News and Research » Can Acupuncture Improve Depression Symptoms?

A recent Australian study looked at acupuncture’s effects on depression symptoms. The researchers compared patients who used standard anti-depression medication and found that those who added acupuncture to their treatment significantly improved their depression compared to the group that didn’t use acupuncture.

Emotional issues are one of the most common main complaints that I see in my practice. Anxiety, stress, depression, irritability, and sleep disorders have all traditionally been treated with acupuncture and Chinese medicine.

See my March 25th blog article for other natural therapies for treating depression, including the Chinese herb Hou Po.
