Raleigh Acupuncture Depression Treatment
Watch this video to learn about our treatment.
How It Works
The first thing we do when you come to acupuncture for depression is identify the root cause of your condition. In Chinese medicine, conditions like depression are caused by physical imbalances in the body. These physical imbalances present themselves as emotional symptoms.
By bringing the body into balance the emotional symptoms ease. The physical imbalances are located at the organ level, and our treatments help bring organs into proper balance.
What To Expect
You will lie down on a comfortable table during your treatment . Hair-thin needles will be inserted painlessly in the correct points to correct the the imbalance causing your depression. Once in place, the needles will send a constant message to your body and the healing will begin.
You won’t feel a thing, except relaxed and happy. You may even fall asleep during your treatment. Many of our patients say that the Raleigh Acupuncture depression treatment is even more relaxing than a massage. Afterwards you may feel like you’ve had a deep, restful nap.
How Soon To Feel Better?
You will start feeling the difference in your emotions after the first treatment. Treatment plans differ based on the individual’s needs and condition. Mild cases resolve faster than moderate or severe ones. All levels of depression respond well to acupuncture. If appropriate, we will suggest taking Chinese herbs. We have a full Chinese herbal medicine pharmacy at your disposal.

What our Clients are Saying
I was feeling depressed and stressed because I didn’t like my job and didn’t know what to do with my life. I started taking Lexipro but it really affected my libido so I stopped taking it. I tried acupuncture because my husband said it helped him when he was depressed years earlier (before he met me!) I went to Raleigh Acupuncture and started treatments. They were really knowledgeable about Chinese medicine and explained how the body gets stuck in depression, and how the acupuncture gets the body unstuck. They really listened to me and helped me figure stuff out. I started feeling less depressed. Then I actually started getting more clear about what I wanted to do with my life career-wise. I decided to go back to school and now I’m almost done with my degree. I haven’t felt depressed at all since I was treated and I’m really excited about my life. I’m very grateful to them for being such great healers and such a great support to me when I really needed it.
I had very severe depression after my son was born. The doctors put me on medication, which helped, but I still had no motivation and felt very sad. I tried acupuncture and it really improved my mood. I would say that within four weeks of starting treatment I was no longer depressed. My motivation returned, I was able to get out of bed in the morning ready to go, and I started enjoying my son for the first time. I think the combination of medications and acupuncture worked great for me. I appreciate the caring and skill at Raleigh Acupuncture and recommend them highly for treating depression.
