Acupuncture Lays Insomnia to Rest
Apr 06, 2011 10:00AM
The definition of insomnia, according to the American Sleep Disorders Association (ASDA), is difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Insomnia may have a number of causes including stress, depression or anxiety. Western medication is helpful in some cases, but the use of prescribed medications often results in side effects such as drowsiness that are difficult to live with. If insomnia persists, then concentration and comprehension skills may decrease while depression and fatigue may increase. Frustration with quality of life can result in a frustrating search for sleep remedies.
5- Element Acupuncture is particularly effective in treating insomnia and has an extremely calming effect on the nervous system. Many people report immediate improvements in their sleeping habits. With acupuncture, the sensation of sleep comes easily, lasts without interruption, and is deeper and more refreshing.
5- Element Acupuncture channels an energy force, known as Qi (pronounced Chee) runs throughout your body and carries the essential energy required for your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Acupuncture views almost all sleep disorders as stemming from either a deficiency in qi or from a surplus of qi in specific body organs, Acupuncture accesses and clears blockages through your body’s acupuncture points to allow your essential Qi to flow freely once more. This approach addresses the underlying cause of the problem without side effects over a period of several treatments.
