Has anyone ever tried acupuncture for either depression or anxiety or either for both together?

Did it help any?

How many sessions did you need for it to help you feel any better?

have been considering it but not sure if it would help, sometimes they say alternative therapies generally work for the more mild/ moderate anxiety/depression...then if so I think it may be wise to wait till i get back on my feet

I have been getting indie head massage done, and I swear by them.
They do them free in the health centre where I live, you give a donation.

It has really, really helped me in terms of my anxiety.

They over acupuncture but I have never tried, I am really twitchy lol, but I might give it a try this week.

I would love to know how it goes, if you can update.

I don't know what it is with me, but massages don't relax me, and some give me pain (back). And my partner is terrible, just pure pain! I'd love to try acupuncture some day to see if it works, lowers stress or pain at all.

Same here Andio.

Anytime I ask someone for a massage it usually just leaves me in more pain. Maybe because the person isn't trained in it.

I'm hoping to get some acupuncture done soon though.

I would highly recommend indie head massages for stress.

I have tried it - actually for a back problem. I know plenty of people swear by it but it made no difference to my back and I noticed no difference to my then depression.
It's one of those things that if you have the money it can't harm to try it. It might work for you, but it might not.
