Has anyone tried acupuncture for, or during a time when they were very depressed? I am thinking about it...grasping at straws really. I am also taking meds, getting counselling, taking time off work, etc., but I am desperately trying to find something to take care of me physically (an alternative to exercise). I feel like shit all the time.

The accupuncterist I went to also did massage.....after some regular appointments it helped me feel better. I wouldn't say it cured me.....but it did me feel better. Also during the session I also got to talk about my problems to him.....just having someone to talk to helped immensely. Anyway, that was my experience.....if you try it I hope you get a good accupuncterist like I did.

dax - thanks for replying - I was hoping at least one person has experience. My health benefits don't cover it so if I am going to drop 50 - 70$ each time, I need to research it and get a whole lot of perspectives.

Wouldn't a cure be nice? Heehee - here's some needles, we'll re-arrange your "chi" and BAM you are healthy! Ta-da!

yeah... a cure would definately be nice. i would definately research it more before doing it as it is indeed expensive. i was fortunate the accupuncterist did massage and accupuncture, i don't know exactly how it worked but i did experience some relief by going. i couldn't afford to keep going everytime though so i didn't continue after a while due to cost.
