Do you experience insomnia? Are you tired of relying on medication to get sleep? Try acupuncture for insomnia and find relief. Though it might not seem like the obvious choice to keep you from tossing and turning at night, acupuncture for insomnia has successfully treated symptoms for centuries and continues to provide relief. According to a study by the Journal of Sleep Medicine, “acupuncture for insomnia is a safe and effective treatment that improves the quality and duration of sleep. The procedure doesn’t have side effects like many Western sleep aids that can be habit-forming and leave you feeling drowsy during the daytime.”
Do You Need Acupuncture for Insomnia?
Many people suffering from unresolved chronic insomnia are unaware of the negative consequences of a prolonged lack of sleep. Insomnia contributes to poor health and a weakened immune function over time. It can result in irritability, lack of focus, depression, physical aches and pain, emotional stress, or psychological imbalance. But with the professionals at Strength and Vitality you can get to the root of your insomnia problems and get your internal energy back into balance through acupuncture for insomnia.
How Does Acupuncture for Insomnia Work?
Acupuncture promotes the body’s natural inner-healing process by stimulating specific acupuncture points, or acupoints, by inserting fine, sterile needles into the skin. The treatment is based on the principle of life forces which, according to traditional Chinese medicine, holds that energy flow throughout the body along specific paths, called meridians.
A healthy state of body and mind happens when the flow of energy (Qi flow) is constant and uninterrupted. When the flow becomes blocked along a meridian, an imbalance occurs and symptoms of insomnia or poor health develop. Acupuncture unblocks the flow of qi which improves circulation and regulates chemicals produced within the brain resulting in a deep relaxing effect on the body.

There are different types of insomnia and each will require a different acupuncture treatment. You’ll want a qualified acupuncturist who can provide the correct treatment and has knowledge of the qi flows.
