Denver Acupuncture for Anxiety, Stress and Depression

Acupuncture for anxiety induces relaxation, decreases the heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases energy, and reduces feelings of stress or depression.


Anxiety is one of the most common mental illnesses worldwide

It is estimated that one in five people will experience depression at some point in their life.

In this fast pace world that often leaves many feeling disconnected and stressed out it is important to take care of our mental wellbeing so that we can live a more fulfilled and content life.

How Does Acupuncture Help with Anxiety, Depression & Stress? Studies show that acupuncture:

  • Calms the nervous system
  • Reduces stress
  • Increases relaxation
  • Brings the body into a parasympathetic state
  • Increases production of serotonin & noradrenalin (neurotransmitters often targeted by antidepressants)
  • Decreases heart rate & blood pressure
  • Increases energy & tissue regeneration
  • Reduces Inflammation
  • Relieve tension headaches
  • Improve digestion- BONUS!

Although acupuncture cannot alter the external elements in an individual’s life, it can relieve feelings of anxiety or depression. As the heavy feelings of stress are relieved, a person feels more confidence in his or her ability to cope with the negative aspects of life and make necessary changes.

My mind, body and soul balanced at Wellnest. From pain relief to spiritual mental and physical consciousness you can find ground here. My journey through both and many other therapies progressed when acupuncture provided the mental, physical integration, and balance I needed. Thank you.
