Treating Depression Through Five Element Acupuncture

Depression has become one of the most common illnesses in our culture, and the feelings of hopelessness, despair and disconnection can make it difficult to function. In the West, traditional approaches to mental health problems include psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. “While these approaches can be very helpful, they often miss the relationship between our physical body, mental function and emotional health,” states David Frome, of Frome Physical Therapy. “Five Element Acupuncture is a unique form of acupuncture that can help people to manage and overcome depression.”

      During the first Five Element treatment, an assessment is taken of the many aspects of a patient’s health during hildhood, adolescence and adulthood. The patient’s current state of health and its evolution is then viewed in full including the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects. This clear picture will be used to lay the foundation for a highly individualized treatment plan. The sessions that follow will select a specific pattern of acupuncture points to support and balance the constitution, while energetic blocks and imbalances are released.

      If you’ve only tried acupuncture, you haven’t experienced the full spectrum of its benefits,” says Frome. “Five Element Acupuncture is a wonderful tool to support your mental and overall health, and often leads to extraordinary improvements in the body, mind, and emotional well-being.”

Location:  415 Pompton Ave, Cedar Grove. David Frome is physical therapist, advanced Rolfer and Five Element Acupuncturist. For information call 973-509-8464. FromePT.com.
