How does acupuncture help as a mood booster?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. While the exact mechanisms through which acupuncture works are not fully understood by science, there are several theories about how it may help elevate mood.

Acupuncture may influence the release and regulation of neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals play a crucial role in mood regulation, and imbalances that are often associated with mood disorders like depression.

Acupuncture may stimulate the release of endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers and mood elevators. Endorphins can contribute to a sense of well-being and may help alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Some studies suggest that acupuncture may have anti-inflammatory effects.  Chronic inflammation is linked to various mental health issues, and by reducing inflammation, acupuncture may positively impact mood.

Acupuncture may influence the autonomic nervous system, helping to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches.  The balance is important for overall health and can contribute to a sense of relaxation and reduced stress.

Traditional belief is that Acupuncture helps to balance the flow of Qi (pronounced Chee).  With Qi balanced, a person will feel an improved sense of well-being.

Acupuncture may influence the release of hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline, which are the body’s response to stress.  With all this being said, it’s important to remember that a person will respond individually when it comes to mood.

Acupuncture sessions here at PRICC are often accompanied by a calming environment.  We have created a calm neutral space where we encourage clients to come down and take some time out of their busy schedules for self-care.  And this act of self-care alone will have a positive impact on your mood.
