Traditional Chinese Medicine can help alleviate symptoms of insomnia, sleep apnoea, and feelings of stress and anxiety which can interfere with sleep.

In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture employs needles to help balance your flow of qi  (or chi) throughout your body.

Needles are strategically placed in specific points along 14 meridians – or qi pathways – in your body in order to rebalance your energy flow. When qi gets stuck, it can cause pain, discomfort, reduced bodily function, or illness.

Strategic placement of the needles releases the blockage and allows energy to flow as your body’s natural healing process kicks in.

After an acupuncture session, many individuals report a blissful, relaxed or even dazed feeling referred to as “acu land.”


What can cause sleep disorder?

Depression, anxiety and stress

Lots of people suffer from depression, anxiety and stress. They are seeking alternatives to anti-depressant medication. As an acupuncturist, I am interested in staying on top of recent studies and ensuring I can provide my patients with the most up-to-date information regarding non-prescription treatment options. There are some promising recent studies showing how acupuncture can treat depression, anxiety, and stress, as well as providing clear, biological explanations for the clinical evidence I have seen. So how does acupuncture work? The acupuncturist inserts fine needles into certain identified acupuncture points on “meridians” which run throughout the body and correspond to certain organs. Meridians can be thought of as a highway of energy, or “qi” in traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is theorised to work by getting rid of the "roadblocks" on this energy superhighway.

 

When there is congestion on the highway, energy gets backed up. When the meridians are clear (no roadblocks), the qi flows freely. Each meridian “homes” to an organ and each organ has certain associations, such as emotions or body parts. For example, in Chinese medicine, the emotion of the liver is anger. When the qi is blocked, it can cause liver qi stagnation, which can result in anger. It goes both ways, though—when you’re angry a lot, you can block the flow of liver qi. Western medicine has shown that acupuncture releases endorphins, and activates natural pain killers.

Now we see that it affects other biological functions as well. Chinese medicine sees acupuncture as improving functioning by correcting blockages or imbalances in the organs.
