One in four of us will experience some kind of mental health problem every year, and the most common type is anxiety combined with depression.
In China, acupuncture has a long history of use for mental and emotional disorders, with written references going back to the Han dynasty, around 200 B.C. Modern studies in China have found that acupuncture may be effective in treating depression and even more effective in treating anxiety.
In the West, we are beginning to realise how useful acupuncture can be for mental health problems. A survey carried out by the Mental Health Foundation found that 85% of those asked had found complementary medicine extremely helpful . A pilot study carried out at two mental health centres in the East End of London, provided 8 acupuncture treatments for patients and then asked, 'What effect has acupuncture had on your overall health?' Patients reported a 'marked improvement' in their condition.
