Anxiety and Depression are at all time highs over the last few years. Mental health has become a crucial focus in health care and many folks have newly sought out relief with anti-depressant medications.
However, many do not enjoy the unwanted side effects of anti-depressants. Whether it’s weight gain, fatigue, a completely flat affect (never feeling “big emotions” of anger, sadness, or joy), low libido, or impotence, patients seek out alternative options.
Acupuncture helps with anxiety and depression by improving the neurotransmitter response in the brain, and providing a balancing effect to the different bio-hormones in the body. Dr. Parks has extensive experience treating anxiety, depression, and PTSD using acupuncture, helping patients to either reduce or eliminate medications and side effects.
For the last 3 years, Dr. Parks has added an additional therapy to help called Brain TapTM, a headset that utilizes light and sound with guided meditations designed to create new synapses and open new pathways in the brain, allowing patients to experience faster and deeper states of relaxation using similar techniques to hypnosis and neuro-linguistic programming. Most patients report becoming so relaxed that they drift asleep during their session, especially when combining acupuncture with the Brain TapTM headset.
Certain vitamin injection therapy provides a significant reduction in inflammation within the brain and nervous system, which has created vast improvements with anxiety and depression.
Each patient is considered on a case by case basis as to what therapies will be most appropriate for their treatment goals, after a thorough medical consultation and intake with Dr. Parks, with over a 90% success rate in reducing anxiety and depression naturally.
