Targeting insomnia with Chinese medicine

I think there's a lot to be said for acupuncture and acupressure as insomnia treatments.

In fact, I'm a big proponent of non-pharmaceutical intervention when it comes to improving sleep. Therefore, today I wanted to share some information on the use of Chinese medicine to help relieve your insomnia.

Apparently, the theories of ancient Chinese medicine tell us that chronic insomnia is most likely down to an imbalanced chi - and this can normally be blamed on the kidney, heart, liver or spleen.

After thirty sessions of acupuncture targeting the liver and heart, one 40 year old woman was able to sleep through the night without sleeping pills.

A 50 year old woman suffering from menopause symptoms experienced improved sleep after acupuncture that focused on improving her 'kidney yin energy'.

A 35 year old man would struggle to sleep through the night; his practitioners worked on improving his spleen chi and heart blood.

This may all sound like hocus pocus (I have to admit, I'm skeptical myself). However, if you're willing to open your mind and try new potential insomnia treatments, who knows what benefits you may experience.

    I’ve always believed in looking to alternative medicine – if a replacement exists for pills, then we should definitely look towards adopting it into our treatment course!

    Besides, Chinese medicine has had thousands of years of history – and techniques like acupuncture were used to treat insomnia long before the term existed in our world.

    Haha, a hearty good luck to fellow insomniacs in trying this!

    Cheers,
    Mark.
