Mental Health Mayo

Mental health

Acupuncture has recently been proven to be as effective as counselling for depression.

Acupuncture treats anxiety, sleep problems, it improves mood and reduces irritability. Heat can be created in the body by mental emotional stresses. This extra heat in our system can sometimes cause us to react to scenarios differently than we would like. Acupuncture takes this heat out of the system and leaves the person feeling calm and 'cool'.

Acupuncture is also a great addition to treatment plans for chronic and acute mental illnesses.
