Hong Ma, R.Ac., R.TCMP - Acupuncturist & TCM Practitioner
Mental health is an important part of your overall well-being. Generally, people who are mentally healthy feel in control of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests that treating mental health disorders with acupuncture can have a positive and holistic effect particularly when used in combination with herbal remedies.
Acupuncture has also proven to be an effective form of stress relief. This can help improve emotional and mental well-being and ease symptoms associated with specific mental health disorders, such as anxiety and depression.
Being a 3,000-year-old gentle modality, acupuncture provides a safe and effective alternative to antidepressants. It can treat the symptoms of depression and anxiety, as well as, the root or underlying cause of imbalances in the body.
Acupuncture along with Oriental medicine is an art and a science that takes years to master. I bring to each of my client’s sessions professional formal training and over 20 years of experience treating mental health.
