Anxiety and Depression

Acupuncture for Anxiety and Depression Treatment

Seeking treatment for anxiety and depression can often feel like a losing game for a lot of people. 

At City Acupuncture, we know that many of our patients have tried multiple treatments with no success. Because many of these treatments are one-size-fits-all, their effectiveness varies from person to person and can be ineffective to say the least. 

At City Acupuncture, we believe in a patient-centered approach that allows us to formulate treatment plans specific to your individual needs and goals, making acupuncture a great option for many people. 

Understanding Depression& Anxiety

Dealing with anxiety and depression on a day-to-day basis can be tiring at best and almost unbearable at times. While our bodies have been programmed to handle stress, consistent extreme stress can take a toll on the body. Stress elevates the body???s Cortisol hormone, increases blood pressure, and suppresses immune functions. 

Over time, if left untreated, extreme stress can lead to anxiety and depression, both of which can affect the body???s ability to function and your overall well being. 

Acupuncture helps relieve this stress, often in the form of neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, or simply fatigue, by releasing endorphins and improving circulation throughout the body. Together, these help fight stress and alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression for good.  


Unlike traditional anxiety and depression treatments with drugs, our acupuncture treatment plans are centered on our patients??? individual needs and goals. 

During your first visit, you will meet with one of our acupuncturists to evaluate your specific situation including triggers, management techniques and existing treatments. They???ll also review any previous test results to help determine the best treatment plan for you. Your acupuncturist will also discuss recommended sessions and other tips for managing your depression and anxiety. They???ll also be happy to answer any questions on how acupuncture works, what you can expect from acupuncture and any other questions you may have about acupuncture.
