Mental Health Q&A

What is mental health?

Mental health involves your emotional and psychological well-being. Your mental state affects how you think, feel, behave, handle stress, relate to others, and make decisions. 

If you experience a mental health issue, it may affect your thoughts, mood, and actions and lead to physical concerns.

The Healing Point offers a holistic approach to mental health. Your practitioner treats more than just the symptom and focuses on the underlying cause. 

A mental health condition may also be the root of physical symptoms like headaches, digestive problems, and fatigue. Your practitioner can treat multiple concerns in one visit. 

What mental health issues can you treat?

Therapy and prescription medication aren’t the only ways to effectively treat mental health conditions. The Healing Point can address mental health concerns, including:


  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Autism spectrum disorder 
  • Insomnia and other sleep disorders 

Acupuncture can help with hyperactivity and promote relaxation in children. It can also leave them feeling energized, which can combat lethargy and improve learning skills. 

Acupuncture may regulate neurotransmitters and hormone levels, releasing mood-boosting endorphins and promoting overall emotional balance.

What are treatments for mental health? 

The Healing Point may recommend a combination of treatments. 


In acupuncture, your practitioner inserts thin, steel needles into targeted parts of your body. Applying these needles to acupuncture points (meridians) rebalances your energy flow (qi) and improves your health. 

During a session, which can last up to 60 minutes, you lie comfortably on a padded table while your practitioner inserts needles into your skin. You may feel some pressure or an aching sensation, but the process should be painless. 

An advantage of acupuncture is that, unlike certain medications, it has little to no adverse side effects or contraindications. Some common side effects may include bruising, minor bleeding, or soreness.

Acupuncture is particularly beneficial for pregnant women or other patients who need to avoid certain medications. 

If you take medication, acupuncture’s ability to stimulate your central nervous system can improve the medication’s functioning. 

Supplements and herbal formulas

Your practitioner can educate you on supplements and herbal medicines that promote neurological health, stress management, and overall well-being. Brands like Standard Process®, Metagenics, and Xymogen offer affordable, accessible options.
