Question Acupuncture???

Has anyone ever tried acupuncture for depression? My therapist said that this is an optional treatment. I am currently taking antidepressants but I have always heard good things about acupuncture for other illnesses. I am going to give it a try.

Re: Acupuncture???

I'd like to give it a go. If not for the cost I would. The price of several hundred dollars for a series of visits was too much.

I have heard this does help depression. I will be anxious to hear how it goes.
