According to Chinese Medical theory, mental illness occurs when there is an imbalance within the body. Imbalance can come from an excess or deficiency of yin and yang that disrupts the flow of qi or energy through the body.


Since the early seventies, studies around the globe have suggested that treating mental health disorders with acupuncture has a positive and holistic effect on depressed or stressful patients, particularly when used in combination with psychotherapy and herbal treatments.

 

When stressed, the body produces adrenalin, cortisol, and other strong chemicals in response, whether the perceived or experienced stress is psychological or physical. When a person is stressed over a long period, though, these substances can cause serious negative impacts on his or her health, including: sleep disruption, chronic headaches, hormone disruption, gastrointestinal distress, weight gain, immune system impairment, cardiovascular impacts, and psychological disturbances.

 

In the short term, stress challenges the immune system, adjusts blood pressure, increases heart rate, shifts neurotransmitters, and regulates the central nervous system. In the long term, stress damages the body's systems, reduces its ability to cope with disease, and impairs brain function and mental health.


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on a holistic view in which the person is an integrated, interacting system of mind and body energies working in conjunction with (or against) its environment. All TCM treatments are aimed toward the goal of balancing a person's energies and restoring balance. Through the use of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and other traditional therapies, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can help to relieve stress or depression and unwind its harmful effects your on health.
