Abstract

This paper describes the application of an FSN acupuncture treatment on two people who were suffering from an acute episode of depression. One was a 32 year-old-woman with a history of depression, and the other a 36-year-old man suffering from acute anxiety and paranoia. Upon examination a tightness was found on the rectus abdominus of both patients. FSN was performed on the rectus abdominus which in both cases resulted in an immediate improvement of the patient’s condition. It is speculated that there may be a link to serotonin levels and the gastrointestinal tract.
