Benefits of Acupuncture for ADD/ADHD

Acupuncture is very beneficial for ADD/ADHD because it helps your brain naturally release it’s feel good neurotransmitters. Charlie does acupuncture probably once every 2 months. He gets the needles put all over his head. He thinks it cool and loves it. He says it “Chills him out.” Acupuncture also restores the natural flow of blood and energy to the brain. Unfortunately acupuncture was not enough to get Charlie off his ADHD medication a few years ago but when it is used along with natural remedies it does help balance ADD/ADHD’s brain chemistry even quicker. Plus this is a natural way of raising serotonin levels and releasing dopamine. And since many ADHD are anxious due to their high energy this is perfect to help take down the tempo because the endorphins release their anxiety and helps them generate deep relaxation.

Enthusiastically yours,
