- Blue Monday and Acupuncture

Blue Monday and Acupuncture

Blue Monday is a name given to a day in January (typically the third Monday of the month) claimed to be the most depressing day of the year. The concept was first publicised as part of a 2005 press release from a holiday company which claimed to have calculated the date using an equation. It takes into account weather conditions and this only applies to the Northern Hemisphere, if it is real at all!?

In January in the middle of Winter, our mood can be affected, affecting our sleep patterns, our diet and energy levels. For some people it can be worse. Sufferers from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), may experience symptoms of depression.


At least one person in every six becomes depressed in the course of their lives and with one in 20 people diagnosed as clinically depressed, Traditional Five Element Acupuncture can play a big part in the way patients tackle mental health issues, being recognised for its benefits in treating depression and low mood.


Depression is a health issue that Traditional Five Element Acupuncture can help. As an acupuncture session completely focuses on the patient and hears what they experiences everyones experience of depression is different. It involves one-to-one time in order to understand them as an individual with their treatment plan specifically tailor made.  This, in combination with the acupuncture treatment to lift mood and give much needed relief, can be very powerful.

With a long history of use in the treatment of psychiatric disorders in China, Traditional Five Element Acupuncture is now increasingly being used both on its own and in conjunction with other therapies, such as psychotherapy and antidepressants, in the UK.
