If you are suffering from anxiety, but reluctant to take antidepressants, you could book a session with acupuncturist.


Speaking from personal experience, even just one session can have a very relaxing effect and reduce anxiety symptoms.


How does it work? Acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural feel good hormones, like serotonin and dopamine, and reduces the level of stress hormones like cortisol.


Research shows that acupuncture is an effective treatment for anxiety, with fewer side effects than antidepressants.
