Here is a great research study showing that Acupuncture is just as effective as traditional medication in treating depression. My clinical experience is that acupuncture works quite well for treating depression, anxiety, post-partum depression, stress, insomnia, and most other psychological problems.
I use a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, homeopathic medicine, and recommendations on exercise and nutrition. In almost all cases we can avoid the use of traditional medications.
