Healthy processing of positive and negative emotions allow them to flow and thus give direction to our lives. Depression often brings together a range of emotions, the processing of which is partially or completely stopped. The purpose of this is to switch off the negative emotions, but unfortunately the positive emotions are also shut down. Without flowing emotions, we are no longer able to give direction to our lives, leaving us feeling empty, heavy and purposeless.
Acupuncture can help stimulate the flow of emotions. The past and the probable causes of the depression are only briefly touched upon. The treatment and exercises are mainly aimed at stimulating an immediate experience in the moment, because life always flows there.
