Psychology and Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a powerful weapon against almost all diseases including psychological conditions. Depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorders plague a high number of people in their daily lives and can be quite debilitating. If you’re suffering, we want to help. Acupuncture, Chinese herbs and an holistic approach to treatment can benefit many suffering needlessly.

Conventional methods of psychological condition treatments include the usage of strong drugs and steroids that come along with various side effects. One of these is dependency on drugs. Ask yourself, are you really cured of your depression and anxiety if you take a daily dose of medication? Unfortunately, the answer to that is no.

Exploring holistic methods of treatment may have the lasting effects that you are looking for. This approach works on the principle of treating a patient as a “whole”, meaning the human body is divided into different parts that are interdependent to each other. If one part gets affected, all the other parts are affected.

Depression and Holistic Medicine

Treating depression with holistic medicine, especially acupuncture, has proven to be very effective at significantly reducing the frequency and duration of depressive episodes. It also proves to be beneficial to the other parts of the body. We like to incorporate a number of treatment modalities that work synergistically (on the Mind, Body and Spirit) to alleviate the symptoms of depression.


This consists of an intense form of treatment for the emotions and thoughts. Techniques using meditation, art and music therapy, yoga and Pilates can improve one’s intellect and thinking process. Psychotherapy combined with acupuncture can also promote healthy mindfulness.


Physical treatment involves various natural techniques that promote well being and relaxation. Methods including nutritional counseling, taking Chinese herbs, and of course traditional Chinese medicine, especially acupuncture treatment. Chiropractic adjustments also work well as part of an holistic treatment plan focused on relieving depression.


Spiritual satisfaction is food for the soul. Wisdom for one’s inner self is the path to complete mental and physical satisfaction. Reiki or energy healing, meditation, psychotherapy, and prayer help one attain a greater level of consciousness and hence help overcome conditions like depression.

Anxiety and Holistic Medicine

Along with acupuncture, diet, yoga and breathing exercises have a direct effect on the treatment of anxiety and panic attacks.


Intake of processed foods has adverse effects on patients with anxiety related disorders. Studies have shown that eliminating gluten, sugar and dairy help alleviate anxiety and facilitate brain activity to perform at its optimal level.


Regular exercise like yoga promotes the release of endorphins, which in turn help overcome conditions like depression and anxiety. This not only promotes a relief from anxiety and panic attacks, but also promotes physical well being.

Breathing Exercises and Meditation

Having a peaceful mind can be achieved by giving time and effort to different breathing exercises and meditation techniques. These have a positive long-term effect in the treatment of anxiety and panic disorders.

Bipolar Disorder and Holistic Medicine

Alternative methods for bipolar disorder treatment include acupuncture, which is one of the most powerful ways to stabilize mood. This, combined with other alternate methods of treatment like nutritional measures and herbal medications have shown significant improvement in patients with bipolar disorder.

In addition to bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety, acupuncture and holistic medicine are a powerful treatment method for addictions, OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder, PTSD or post traumatic stress disorder, and many personality disorders.
