Anxiety is a nervousness from persistent worrying. Depression is a sadness from a persistent loss of hope. Often, these symptoms are caused by the body, not the mind. In this case, an improvement of bodily dysfunctions such as PMS, hormone imbalance, and disease can eliminate anxiety and depression. If they arise from trauma such as PTSD or accident, then a mental work is important in addressing the underpinning psychological reasons. In this case, Asian medicine is used in conjunction with a qualified professional in mental stress.
Asian medicine is a natural, drug-free therapy to keep your brain and physiological body in a homeostatic state. Rather than using addictive medications, you can use natural methods of acupuncture, dietary adjustment, and Asian herbs to naturally help. If your brain is chemically dependent on drugs, then check out our link for relieving your withdrawals.
Patients typically experience less anxiety and depression within 3-4 weeks of treatment. The total course is up to 2 to 3 months. Maintenance treatment at every 2-3 weeks thereafter can keep you at a stable state.

I had a case of anxiety, which was causing bouts of the anxiety for about two years, both therapy and anti-depressants had been tried with little effect.The treatment Dr. Lee proposed involved acupuncture, herbs, and diet. The acupuncture had a very swift positive effect; I noticed a great improvement the day after a treatment. Over the next few days, the anxiety would slowly return, only to be relieved after the next treatment.The first few weeks included acupuncture twice a week. After this, I went to a once a week treatment. Soon I will be going to a bi-weekly schedule.I have experienced great results from Dr. Lee’s acupuncture/herb regimen. The anxiety is almost completely gone. My sleep is very good. The treatment is very effective and painless. I am very happy with the results. A.S.

Anxiety. I had been on the medication for over a year and under the supervision of my regular therapist doctor, I stopped and they recommended I try alternative therapies so I did not fall back into my anxious state. The first few weeks off from medication were little hard, but as soon as I started acupuncture I began to feel better. Now after only several weeks coming to see Dr. Lee I feel better than I have in a long time, even better than when I was taking medication. I have noticed that even things that I did not specifically notice or complain about have gone away. I definitely have a sense of total well being after having gone through a few treatments. Cindy D.

BEFORE: A general sense of imbalance with all areas in my life professionally, personally, mentally, and spiritually. Prior to my first visit, I had been on anti-depressants on and off for 8 years, and I have never felt they were completely effective, rather just put a band-aid on my mental well-being.
AFTER: After a month of acupuncture treatment, my depression has subsided and my general sense of well-being has dramatically improved. Further, I completely feel better (mentally) without the need for anti-depressants! My neck pain has improved much as well. The holistic approach of acupuncture has affected all other areas of my life, and I feel more balanced, focused, and calm!
