What is INSOMNIA ?

Traditional acupuncture treatment for insomnia uses tiny needles to access distinct points on the body corresponding to the patient’s symptoms. The needles will be left in place for 20-40 minutes and then removed. The patient will be given continued treatment 2 to 3 times per week for a total of 10-12sessions, which is considered 1 course. The treatment duration depends on the severity and the stage of the insomnia.
The results of recent studies have shown acupuncture improved sleep quality in people with insomnia. Increased muscle tension and intrusive thoughts can interfere with sleep. After making the diagnosis, the doctor will then treat the symptoms using acupuncture to regulate and create balance within the body.
