Treatment of Insomnia With Acupuncture:
Research finds that acupuncture has a high success rate for treating insomnia. It improves sleep duration as well as quality. Acupuncture increases melatonin secretion and reduces anxiety.
What To Expect:
Though acupuncture may work gradually compared to western pharmaceuticals, it is more permanent with no side effects.
The treatment protocol for sleep issues is 1-2 treatments per week for 8 weeks in conjunction with a Chinese Herbal Formula. This is followed by 1 treatment a week for 4 weeks. At this time we re-evaluate the condition and proceed accordingly.
