How Acupuncture Can Help

According to the theories of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, conditions such as insomnia are a sign of imbalance in Qi (pronounced “chee”), the vital energy that animates the body and protects it from illness. Qi flow through pathways called meridians, providing nourishment for every cell, tissue, muscle, and organ.

This imbalance can stem from a number of causes such as stress, anxiety, medications, depression, and chronic pain. Your acupuncturist will also take into account other factors, including your lifestyle, emotional and mental well being. They will then work to restore the balance and flow of Qi by inserting fine, sterile needles at specific points along the body. When Qi flow is restored, certain physical symptoms such as insomnia may diminish.

You may find that you sleep better after your very first session, though will most likely receive the most benefit from a series of treatments.

With this form of health care, you can treat symptoms, improve your overall health and well being, and start looking forward to a great night’s sleep every night.
