Disturbance in sleeping habits is a very common disorder which is on an all time high due to today’s stressful conditions. This condition known as insomnia refers to impaired sleep. You may be surprised to know that the percentage of people suffering from insomnia is extremely high and it is a daily struggle as they are exhausted and completely drained during the daytime and they are miserable and restless during the night. Insomnia does not only mean a slow start to the day but it can certainly lead to various other problems such as heart ailments, weight gain and many others.
Acupuncture is an effective therapeutic tool for the treatment of insomnia. It is important to understand how acupuncture considers the condition of insomnia and how the treatments work. Acupuncture considers that there are 12 channels through which the body’s Qi or energy flows through and these channels are attached to the internal organs and emotions. The Channels can get affected by too much emotion which will in turn affect the adjacent channel and in turn the Qi flow is disrupted. When the channels get affected by stress or work, it automatically disrupts our sleeping habits.
Acupuncture is a treatment that is free from side effects and many insomnia sufferers have received improvement for their sleeping habits through the use of this traditional therapy. Stress is the main cause of insomnia and acupuncture helps the body adapt to stress. Treatment of insomnia using acupuncture requires at least six sessions or more and involves treating the heart or the pericardium channels.With the use of acupoints that can calm the mind they will also help with better pumping of blood to the heart. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there are various types of insomnia which have different treatment methods. TCM strongly advocates that each of us should take our time to eat, relax and exercise. It also emphasizes that a healthy lifestyle and diet is required to help reduce or eliminate the symptoms of insomnia.
