How does Acupuncture treat depression

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for depression

There is an increasing body of evidence to support the efficacy of acupuncture in the treatment of depression [1,2]. Leo and Ligot in a systematic review of randomized controlled trials of acupuncture in the treatment of depression concluded that acupuncture is as effective as antidepressants in the treatment of depression [3]. In addition there is evidence to show that acupuncture can enhance the effectiveness of conventional medication [4].
