Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese method of unblocking "blocked energy" from various pathways to energy called "chi" or "qi" (pronounced as key). Depression, on the other hand, is a mood disorder that affects an individual's normal daily life functioning. It has either psychological or physical adverse effects or, most of the time, both effects.
The standard treatment used by conventional medicine or by licensed medical practitioners is to give relief to a person complaining of depression by prescribing anti-depressant drugs and/or psychotherapy.
