Insomnia is a common condition in which you have trouble falling or staying asleep. This condition can range from mild to severe, depending on how often it occurs and for how long.
Acupuncture Treats Insomnia
Acupuncture has been used for 2000 years to calm the mind and spirit to allow a person to fall asleep and stay asleep during the night. It works by calming the body’s central nervous system allowing you relax and sleep better. Without enough sleep, your body cannot regenerate itself to allow its natural energy (Qi) to get rid of illnesses. Acupuncture is often combined with herbs, scalp acupuncture, and auricular acupuncture (ear) to enhance the quality of treatment.
While the acupuncture treatment is effective, it works best when the patient also makes positive changes in diet and lifestyle. It is best to avoid beverages with caffeine in the hours before bedtime.
Most patients fall asleep during treatment and have no side effects!
Acupuncture prescriptions are specially designed for each patient, so points will be added or eliminated to balance the body!
