Absolutely. Depression is one of my favorite things to treat because it works so well.
Acupuncture is proven with research to provide relief from pain and stress/anxiety/insomnia. I have helped patients with PTSD and depression as well. Please check with your primary to see if acupuncture would be a safe solution and don’t forget about other resources available. Combinations of treatments could be the most effective.

Live Happy,

Acupuncture is very effective with patients experiencing depression. If a patient is experiencing chronic depression and they have not seen a psychotherapist, we will provide all the information necessary to find the right provider to complement our treatment. Sometimes, patients are feeling exhausted, however, they cannot sleep so acupuncture will help to regulate
the sleeping pattern. We usually add exercises and nutritional guidance to patients that might be needing it.

Acupuncture helps depression by helping the mind and internal organs to bring clean oxygen and blood towards brain, and balancing the hormones. Please consult your local acupuncturist.

Acupuncture can help reduce the anxiety, relax the patient's mind, help the patient sleep, and boost the patient's energy.
Yes, very effective actually. It increases serotonin and dopamine levels naturally, causing more relaxed and happy sensations.
It is very effective
Some studies showed effectiveness of acupuncture, and some other studies are rather contradictory. However, from the old studies, acupuncture treatment can produce a neurotransmitter called endorphin. which is known as the feel good hormone. Bottom line is, you should try anyway since there are no significant side effects as pharmaceuticals are.
