Insomnia and Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient medical therapy that is safe, effective, and helps accomplish major health goals without pharmaceutical treatment. Acupuncture works by stimulating the body's own ability for healing and self-regulation. 
 
One condition that acupuncture treats very well is insomnia:
 
"In clinical trials including Western medications, sleep hygiene and acupuncture to treat insomnia, the acupuncture group reported better sleep quality and duration of sleep." Yeung, Sleep Med (2009)
 
Many patients experience the benefit after just one treatment. We often hear in the clinic that after the first treatment the patient enjoyed the best sleep they've had in years. 
 
Whether you are experiencing difficulty falling asleep, or difficulty staying asleep (or both) acupuncture may be the solution of your dreams.
