Depression is in a huge rise all over the world, especially in the U.S. and Europe. And western medical doctors are very generous on prescription of depression medicine, although in most cases acupuncture and herbal medicine can be a big help for controlling the condition. So, please take your young lady to an acupuncturist. Although she should not stop her medicine since she already started, but with acupuncture and herbs, she can work with her primary doctor to cut down and eventually cut the western medicine drug that she is taking.

This question also is very common in clinics. The pain according to Oriental medicine is disharmony and blockage of the energy‘s circulation. The acupuncturist tries to bring back the harmony and unblock the Qi. If I want to give you an example, think of the body as a wheel which has problems rotating by itself, and it needs some PUSH, but this push has to be strong and for several times in the beginning until it can rotate by itself.
Depending on the time which the condition exists and the severity of pain and discomfort, your acupuncturist will ask you to come 1-3 times per week. It depends on your body’s response, she or he will adjust the frequency of treatment, it means if in the first week you get relief for a day, in the fourth week the relief will last for a week or so. Until they reach the results they want, they will reduce the treatment until the patient does not need that push and it stays in harmony by itself.
So, to answer the question, when you start acupuncture, it does not mean you will need it for the rest of your life.

Does acupuncture work for anxiety?

How old is she? Has she been diagnosed with anxiety or do you think she is sensitive? Is she taking a contraceptive? Does she take any medication for her condition?
Although anxiety can happen at any age, there are certain age groups which are more prone to being anxious. For example, teenagers, or women around menopause are the people I see more with symptoms for this condition. Also, some woman get anxiety before their period.
Anxiety could be just feeling worried and uneasy, unable to fall sleep, sometimes it leads to tachycardia, which is raising of the heartbeat, sweating of the hands, shaking, even numbness on the face. In any of the levels of anxiety, acupuncture can help to calm the person down. However, if your wife is taking medication for anxiety, an acupuncturist cannot do the acupuncture and tell her to get off the medication, but the acupuncturist will do the treatment and may even give her an herbal prescription and over a few times, your wife's doctor will slowly cut the medication down. In case she is not taking medication, acupuncture usually will work fast to control her symptoms. It depends on the severity of the condition. I see patients 1-3 times for acupuncture for two weeks or so and see how they respond and, according to that, I decide if they need herbal medicine or not. In some cases, I also tape a small seed on their ear to control their symptoms in between treatments.
