This remedy works only to reinforce fatigue, and starts a never ending cycle of stress and low energy. Furthermore, your fatigue may be the result of an underlying illness.

Success Story for Fatigue“Before coming to SOPHIA in August 2018, I was feeling tired, no energy, feel drained and even after sleeping 6-7 hours, I was still exhausted, and experiencing back pain. Now… life is so much better- not totally where I’d like to be but certainly on my way. Now after 6-7 hours of sleep, I have energy, my lower back is feeling better and overall I feel at peace- a feeling I have not had for a very long time. Doing all that you are all doing to help me achieve where I’d like to be.” – Lynn W., suffered from Fatigue.
Symptoms & Causes Of Fatigue
Fatigue is the feeling of excessive sleepiness or weakness, and can be physical, mental, or both. Determining what exactly is causing fatigue can be a bit difficult, because it can be a symptom, as much as it can be a condition on its own. While lack of sleep can very much contribute to fatigue, it is not the sole cause. In fact, an individual may sleep the recommended amount, or more, and still find themselves tired and weak in the morning.
Common symptoms of fatigue include:
- Chronic sleepiness
- Achy muscles and/or joints
- Moodiness and irritability towards friends and family
- Decreased productivity and concentration for daily tasks
- Increased anxiety and depression
- Loss of appetite
- Impaired reflexes, decision-making, and judgement
Fatigue is something that often goes untreated or undiagnosed because people may feel that their excessive tiredness is a natural result of a busy lifestyle. That is simply not true. Fatigue is part of an underlying problem, and we want to help you figure that out. No one should live have to live with chronic fatigue.*
Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture can be a valuable tool in treating patients for fatigue, no matter what the cause. A Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is conducted by inserting thin, sterile needles placed in strategic locations along the meridians in your body. By doing so, the energy in one’s body is regulated and balanced to promote a healthy flow of qi to alleviate pain or discomfort. Fatigue is the result of many different factors so acupuncture is useful in treating it by balancing and relaxing the body.*
Secondary Therapies for Acupuncture
A common form of therapeutic massage is a tu nai, and it is generally used in addition to acupuncture. Receiving a tu nai, especially when accompanied by acupuncture, can relax your body and leave you with more energy.*
If your fatigue is causing you significant muscle and joint pain or discomfort, then cupping may be a great addition to your treatment plan. Cupping is a therapeutic method that utilizes heated glass cups over an affected region with slight suction. This method promotes better blood circulation, gets rid of toxins, and can often relax the body. Cupping can help develop a better energy flow to help promote more restful sleep.*
