Acupuncture for anxiety depression stress Metairie

Mental Health

Acupuncture has been shown in studies to be an effective treatment for stress, anxiety, and depression, and should be considered as an adjunct treatment. In today's fast paced world, it seems that our bodies and minds are constantly under seige, which can not only cause anxiety, racing thoughts, trouble sleeping and decreased mental clarity, but also induces our bodies to release stress hormones that can increase heart rate and blood pressure, contribute to gut problems, cause muscle tension and depress our immune systems. 

An acupuncture session provides dedicated time for self care and relaxation and can help restore the body's sense of equilibrium.

Migraine/ Tension Headaches

A number of quality studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of migraine and tension headaches.  Frequent and/ or prolonged headaches as can occur with migraines can be highly disruptive and have deleterious effects on life quality and enjoyment. In addition to identifying lifestyle triggers to avoid, and taking prophylactic medications, acupuncture may actually reduce the frequency of migraine headaches with an effect similar to medication.
