Mental and Emotional Health Acupuncture

Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, substance abuse, psychosomatic disorders, stress related illnesses, adrenal fatigue, as well as eating and sleep disorders

Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of emotional and mental health. 

 

Acupuncture helps regulate  your body’s levels of serotonin, norepinephrine, dopaminergic systems, GABA, glutamate, modulation of the HPA axis (for adrenal fatigue and cortisol imbalances), secretion of neuropeptide Y (our bodies most abundant brain and nervous system peptide), and the release of several other neuropeptides to help fight inflammation in the brain and gut.

 

Acupuncture’s effect on hormonal activity and neurogenic activity (as shown above) give Acupuncture the ability to treat stress and mental disease at its core, as well as the havoc it wreaks on our body.
