Stress, anxiety and depression are not conditions you have to live with. Under the care of Eastside Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine (EAIM), you can experience a higher quality of life and freedom from these debilitating conditions.

Acupuncture improves blood flow throughout the body, which oxygenates the tissues and washes out cortisol and other waste chemicals. This improves overall well being and is just one of the ways acupuncture treats stress, anxiety and depression.

How Does Acupuncture Alleviate Emotional Problems?


Acupuncture brings about a sense of peace and calmness, while reducing physical symptoms of anxiety, including:

  • Digestive issues

  • Headache

  • Insomnia

  • Rapid heartbeat and breathing

Acupuncture is excellent for those with severe anxiety, as they will experience diminished anxiety symptoms immediately or soon after the first appointment, rather than relying on treatment that works over a long period of time. Patients also usually receive additional benefits such as better sleep and stress management.


Depression may be either acute or chronic, meaning short-term or long lasting. Acupuncture can treat both, as well as the underlying physical pain that is sometimes the cause of depression. Physical symptoms like insomnia and poor appetite and emotional feelings of depression diminish soon after treatment begins. Acupuncture may be an effective means of reducing dosage or increasing potency of anti-depressants.


Acupuncture is very effective for stress management. Whether your stress is ongoing or is related to a specific situation, acupuncture offers relief. Patients experience nearly instantaneous feelings of wellness and increased relaxation, as acupuncture causes the brain to release natural pain-killing chemicals called endorphins. Treatment can rid such stress-related symptoms as high blood pressure, headaches and musculo-skeletal tightness. Ongoing, untreated stress can have serious consequences for health, quality of life and even relationships. Give your body the rest it deserves with stress acupuncture treatment.
