Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, is a type of depression that is related to the changes in the seasons. Symptoms usually start in the fall and continue into winter. The symptoms that are usually associated with fall/winter SAD can be…

  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Social issues
  • Weight gain
  • Food cravings
  • Oversleeping

From a Traditional Chinese Medical standpoint, Seasonal Affective Disorder is related to an imbalance of the body’s Yin and Yang. Yang describes warmth, activity, and brightness, whereas Yin is cool, still, and dark. During the fall and winter months, Yin is predominant. For some, the amount of Yin can be overwhelming, which then leads to the symptoms of SAD. The abundance of Yin can slow or stagnate your body’s energy, otherwise known as Qi.

Acupuncture can help your Qi move freely and support your overall health. It can keep you physically and emotionally healthy during the fall and winter months. Speak to your clinician today about SAD and acupuncture!
