Acupuncture for Mental + Emotional Health

Mental and Emotional Health is imperative to the health of the whole body. There are numerous challenges to navigating our daily lives impacting how we feel about ourselves and our internal/external environments.

Whether your mental and emotional health has been acknowledged by a professional or no one, acupuncture provides a way to connect to your body, mind, and spirit.

I can't like this enough. Leigh is phenomenal. I started here 3 years ago for my anxiety (lifelong) and seasonal depression (I'm from the sunny South originally). I can honestly say after going to Leigh regularly in the winter, I haven't had any issues with SAD and my anxiety has dramatically dropped. — Mollie R
