Acupuncture for mental health problems

Acupuncture has been shown to be helpful in Anxiety disorders, Stress reduction, Depression, and Insomnia.

Anxiety disorders constitute the largest group of mental disorders in most western societies and are a leading cause of disability. New evidence shows that anxiety disorders are becoming a global problem and that their prevalence is also increasing rapidly in developing countries.

Research has shown that acupuncture treatment may benefit anxiety and depression by acting on areas of the brain known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress, as well as promoting relaxation and deactivating the ‘analytical brain, which is responsible for anxiety and worry.

Best Acupuncture Clinic!

Wondering if acupuncture is worth the money? Don’t think twice! I had a serious neck and shoulder problem after several unfortunate incidents. I’ve tried painkillers, physiotherapy, ultrasounds, but nothing really worked. Not to mention I couldn’t sleep and had to stop my activity completely. From the beginning of this year, I have been seen by Dr. Hans Mathew several times. First, he described each step and the benefits of the treatment and made sure I’m comfortable. Being a little nervous around the needles, I found it very reassuring. Next, we’ve started a 10-session treatment that lasted over 2 months. I’ve heard that medical acupuncture really works, but I certainly didn’t expect such a significant effect – my issues started improving almost immediately. Now I see Dr. Hans once a month to still benefit from the electro-acupuncture that works for me as stress relief. I can’t recommend Dr. Hans Mathew enough; he’s highly qualified and fully patient-focused!
