When insomnia is caused by chronic pain

Unsurprisingly, those living with pain often find it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.

If your insomnia is caused by chronic pain, you may want try some self-administered shiatsu pressure techniques on your hands.

A small pilot study in Canada found that individuals who were taught basic shiatsu techniques fell asleep faster and stayed asleep longer after between 2 and 8 weeks of treatment.

Participants spent between 10-15 minutes each day self-administering the shiatsu treatment.

One woman who had been living with chronic back pain for 15 years said she had not felt well rested in more than 10 years. She continued with the treatment after the pilot study ended.

Researchers suspect this may be an effective insomnia treatment since the process of self-administering the shiatsu takes some concentration. As a result, negative thoughts are less likely to be able to interfere with sleep.
