Depression affects 121 million people worldwide. Prolonged feelings of sadness and hopelessness can greatly affect a person’s quality of life.

While treating depression acupuncturists like to focus on balancing and activating the Qi by manipulating certain points on the body. Some physical symptoms of depression are extreme tiredness, lack of motivation and feeling cold.
Insomnia is very common is patients whose life is subject to large amounts of stress. The length of sleep we need changes according to age and most of the time it gradually decreases as we get older. Acupuncturists will alwasy take age into account when determining if the patient’s sleep is adequate.

When patients wake up frequently over night and have excessive dreams together with sweats and palpitations it may be a heart and kidney-yin deficiency.
