Lack of Motivation and Energy


Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be a useful tool for those who are experiencing a lack of motivation and energy. The severity of these feelings may vary, as well as the cause of symptoms.

Many of our patients experience a lack of motivation or energy around a certain season (e.g. Seasonal Affective Disorder), during a stressful time, or centered around a certain situation or event.

Others may experience this in association to another diagnosis such as clinical depression, or in conjunction with chronic disease. Sometimes there is no known cause for feelings of apathy or physical and mental fatigue. Regardless of the cause, acupuncture and Chinese medicine, including Chinese herbs, may be able to help.
