For mild depression, acupressure is useful in alleviating many of the physical symptoms.
Depression can occur when you repress certain emotions. By using anti-depression acupressure points, it can help to release blocked energy. Acupuncture balances the flow of chi throughout the body and helps resolve the underlying imbalance contributing to the depression. Siberian ginseng, licorice, and St.-John’s-wort can increase the availability of serotonin in the brain.
Herbal remedies commonly used for depression are not always recommended for Bipolar Disorder. There are a few homeopathic remedies, including magnesium, acupuncture treatment, oil massage, yoga, meditation, t’ai chi, and gigong may often be very helpful for manic-depression.
