We know that many things can cause depression and anxiety. A traumatic event, hormonal shifts, bereavement, chronic pain, prolonged lack of sleep, socio-economic struggles and living with oppression can all trigger or aggravate mild to severe depression as well as anxiety. Whatever the cause(s), community acupuncture can help, and as healthcare practitioners, we are deeply invested in interrupting & challenging mental health stigma. (We’ve written more about that here.)
Our treatment plan recommendations will vary widely depending on the intensity of your symptoms. We’ve shared a post with more detail about this here.
