Insomnia can present itself in many ways, from finding it difficult to sleep at night and waking up in the middle of the night to finding it difficult to quiet your mind after a busy day at work or suffering from ‘restless leg syndrome’.
For some, the inability to fall asleep is the most noticeable symptom, while others are startled awake by every noise.
Daytime effects include fatigue, difficulty concentrating, feeling depressed, irritability or lethargic thinking.
Chinese medicine may be able to help. It is used as a successful insomnia remedy that focuses on the person’s individual symptoms and builds a whole-healing plan that brings the body back into balance.
The most effective methods of improving sleeping patterns are acupuncture, acupressure and Chinese herbal medicine.
Acupuncture has a calming effect on the nervous system as it clears obstructions in the muscle and nerve channels, facilitates the flow of energy and relaxes the body system.
Common benefits of acupuncture include deeper breathing, improved digestion, better sleeping patterns and a greater sense of well-being, which are all related to restful sleep.
