Do you lie awake in the middle of the night, exhausted? Try acupuncture!
As many insomnia sufferers know, a lack of sleep means more than a sluggish start the next morning. According to the National Sleep Foundation, it can contribute to problems ranging from weight gain to heart ailments.
In many cases, the consequences of a sleepless night can cause problems in relationships, too — both personal and professional. Acupuncture can help you get a good night’s sleep so you can rise and shine feeling refreshed, and ready to face the day.
Acupuncture has been used for centuries to successfully treat a wide variety of ailments and concerns including sleep disturbances. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory dictates that the body’s energy, or qi, circulates through twelve meridians, which are linked to internal organs and emotions. The heart meridian, for instance, relates to anxiety, the liver meridian to stress and anger, the spleen meridian to worry.
Too much of any of these emotions can influence the energy of our emotional body, and affect our sleeping patterns. If our body’s qi is blocked, it can keep us from falling asleep, prevent REM sleep, and cause us to wake up easily.
Acupuncture can free up energetic blocks, and lead to ideal movement and function throughout the body — essential to a good night’s sleep.
Acupuncture works by approaching the mind and body holistically to address internal imbalance, encouraging the flow of natural energy, and releasing physical and mental tension.
It also relaxes muscle tension, enhances circulation, and promotes better sleep!
Acupuncture is helpful for treating all sleep problems. The therapy boosts your mood and immune system. It is also effective for the treatment of stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and chronic fatigue.
The best part? Acupuncture is safe, natural, effective and drug-free.
