I always can’t sleep at night…

I’m always having anxiety, then I get heart palpitations, then I panic…

I keep tossing and turning, I just can’t sleep…

I finally get to sleep, but I keep dreaming…

I’m a light sleeper, I’ll wake to the slightest bit of disturbance…

I feel like my body, and even soul, is being emptied of energy, I’m just soooooo tired…

periods of insomnia

After prolonged periods of insomnia, hair loss starts to set in, my skin feels loose, my complexion looks darker and pigmented, pores get enlarged, wrinkles start forming, and these eye bags and dark eye circles can’t seem to go away!

With each day of insomnia, my body seems to deteriorate, and I can’t help but worry how much longer my body can take this all.

Insomnia is getting more common, especially in face of the many dilemmas and difficulties of waking life and work, which draws out feelings of anxiety, depression, agitation, and anger, often accompanied by overthinking, or an over-active mind, all of which could aggravate or lead to insomnia.

The above descriptions are still considered mild.

In fact, the lack of sleep for just one night can cause reduction in brain tissues. Imagine the serious effects of prolonged insomnia…

Reduced immunity

Insufficient sleep of less than 6 hours, over a period of one week, leads to changes in over 700 genes. Insomnia may lower a person’s immunity, contribute to irritability, and increase one’s risk of heart disease, breast cancer, stroke, diabetes, etc.

Premature aging, reduced mental ability

Insomnia causes premature aging, and interferes with memory, attention, and logical thinking, resulting in reduced mental ability.

Endocrine changes

Insomnia, or insufficient sleep, may affect our endocrine system, slow down metabolism, and promote obesity. Poor blood circulation of the skin causes reduced skin moisture, resulting in dry, wrinkled skin; it also promotes pigmentation, resulting in dull facial appearance.

“Acupuncture is useful in the treatment of chronic diseases.”

The effect of acupuncture in treating insomnia is achieved by regulating the body’s yin and yang, to strengthen the body’s constitution and eliminate excess toxins.

Acupuncture, cupping, and/or guasha are often used in combination with Chinese herbal medicine to treat insomnia. One or more treatment methods are often selected based on the patient’s condition and time concerns.

Acupuncture treatment

Acupuncture is a safe and effective way of treating insomnia. Advantages of using acupuncture for insomnia is that it is non-toxic, and does not cause reliance to treatment.

TCM advocates gradual adjustments in strengthening the body’s constitution, and to gradually restore normal body functions.

As a final note, our TCM physician gently reminds patients with insomnia to pay attention to the following matters:

1. Develop regular work and rest habits. Soaking your feet in warm water before going to bed helps promote good sleep.

2. Avoid having late dinner, and do not over-eat in the evening/night. Keep to a light meal for dinner. Avoid eating 2 hours before bedtime. Do not drink strong tea, coffee, or other caffeinated beverages before going to bed.

3. Choose light and easily-digestible foods on a daily basis, such as beans, milk, cereals, eggs, fish, winter melon, spinach, apples, oranges, etc.

4. Exercise regularly, stay open-minded, and cultivate good personal hobbies.
