sleep insomnia treatment
Acupuncture for Insomnia
Insomnia is one of the most annoying and most common problems we see at Lake Highlands Acupuncture. In fact, many of our clients seek our help for other issues but are also dealing with insomnia. Many people sleep poorly, but through excess caffeine consumption or pharmaceutical sleep-aids, they have been able to deal with the problem well enough to get by in their day to day lives. Unfortunately, even if they are used to it, these people often experience a much lower quality of life than do people who regularly experience good sleep naturally.
There are many reasons why you may have difficulty getting the sleep you want and need. In our initial and follow-up consultations, we will discuss your signs and symptoms to determine the root cause of the problem. A thorough intake ensures that we find the precise treatment to help you get some serious shut-eye. Most often, sleep issues respond best to a combination of acupuncture and herbal supplementation. In fact, certain ancient herbal formulas have been shown to significantly improve scores on the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), the most common assessment to measure sleep quality and disturbance (Yeh, 2011).
Sleep is no luxury. Without adequate sleep, it is difficult to feel well and heal efficiently. Don't assume that you have to suffer through insomnia. We can help!
