Researchers from the Depression Clinical Research Program at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston have cited acupuncture to be an effective standalone therapy for major depression for patients who are non-responsive to conventional pharmaceutical antidepressant therapies. The patients received treatment one to two times a week for eight weeks.
They concluded that, “standardized acupuncture treatment was safe, well-tolerated and effective.”
In my practice I help clients every day with depression and anxiety. Many just don’t want to take meds. They find that acupuncture, along with having someone to share their concerns with, really helps a lot. Others are comfortable taking a prescription and choose acupuncture for the extra relief it provides from depression.
