Acupuncture for Insomnia

Use Acupuncture for Insomnia


Are you struggling to sleep? Have you ever considered trying acupuncture for insomnia? A very common ailment in today's busy and stressful world, insomnia can quickly impact your life and daily ability to function. There are many different causes for insomnia, including stress, anxiety, diet, poor sleep habits or pain. Sleeping tablets can help you sleep through the night and are sometimes necessary. But what traditional Chinese medicine does is look at the root causes of the problem and try and rebalance these issues in a drug-free, safe way.


Chinese traditional medical practitioners have practised acupuncture for thousands of years as part of the treatment regimen for many illnesses and ailments. Acupuncture focuses on stimulating pressure points within the body to effectively relay Qi (or energy) to the muscles, skin, and organs throughout the body. This process helps with health and wellbeing and helps to reduce unwanted symptoms, such as insomnia.

The Benefits of Acupuncture for Insomnia


Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most avidly studied forms of medical treatment on earth. Choosing acupuncture as part of your insomnia treatment regimen may hold numerous benefits for your general health and wellbeing.


  • Life is busy, and most of us find it difficult to relax. Even on weekends when we're supposed to spend time with loved ones, the stress is always in the background putting a damper on everything we do. Undergoing acupuncture is deeply relaxing. It helps restore the smooth movement of energy through your body which may help relax your muscles, reduce stress, improve your mood, and therefore improve sleep.

  • Acupuncture is a drug-free approach to treating insomnia, so there are no adverse side effects when trying this treatment approach.

  • By using acupuncture to stimulate the central nervous system, biochemical changes may be triggered that stimulate the natural healing abilities in the body, promoting both emotional and physical wellbeing. They may reduce pain which can cause insomnia.
