Mood & Mental Health

Traditionally acupuncture has been used to balance and harmonise the body and mind by providing a tailored approach and addressing each person’s constitution. We work with a range of common conditions such as depression and anxiety as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), insomnia, sleep issues, and more.

Evidence for acupuncture in managing symptoms associated with stress and anxiety Statistical research suggests a vast portion of the population suffers from some form of anxiety. Ranging from mild to severe with both emotional and physical manifestations. Recent research involving clinical trials has found acupuncture to be effective in managing symptoms of anxiety compared to certain pharmaceutical medications. This research also provides insights into the biochemical mechanisms explaining how acupuncture works on both a physical and emotional level.

  1. Increases the release of endorphins – our feel-good chemicals which regulate emotional and physical responses such as heart rate, digestive functions, pain, and blood pressure.
  2. Improves heart rate variability (HRV) – enabling us to cope with stress more effectively. HRV is a measure of the variation in time between each heartbeat and a way of determining how we respond to stress.
  3. Reduces the release of various neurochemicals from the hypothalamus that plays a significant role in the stress response, thereby, promoting a sense of calm.
