Success Story for Insomnia“Since coming to SOPHIA 3 ½ years ago, I’ve been on maintenance care (once a month) for about 3 years. I really have not had any major setbacks. I continue to feel a lot better. I’m more aware of how certain lifestyle choices can affect your well being. As I continue on maintenance, I am continually establishing the healthier ways of handling the realities of life without compromising my health. Getting to know the boundaries of what I can and can’t tolerate. How to handle things when I’m surrounded by situations where the attitude towards health and food aren’t the same as mine.” – S. Logan, suffered from Anxiety and Insomnia
Symptoms & Causes Of Insomnia
Insomnia is the inability to fall asleep or remain sleeping at night. The amount of time you need for a restful night of sleep is different from someone else’s need. So, insomnia is often defined by the quality of sleep and how you feel when you wake up. You may sleep over the recommended time and still feel fatigue or drowsy, and this could be the signs of insomnia.
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Waking up during the night
- Daytime drowsiness or fatigue
- Difficulty concentrating
There are many reasons why you are experiencing insomnia. It could be the cause of a medical condition, unhealthy sleeping habits as well as other biological factors. Insomnia is not a single sleep disorder, and it is better known as a symptom of another underlying problem.
The most common causes of insomnia are anxiety, stress, and depression. By having difficulty sleeping you could also be putting a strain on these additional conditions. Other emotional or psychological causes of insomnia include trauma, worry, grief or anger. The best way to combat insomnia is to treat the causes behind it.*
Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture can often be used to treat insomnia, sleep apnea, as well as other disorders such as anxiety or stress that can interfere with your sleeping patterns. Custom to Chinese Medicine, acupuncture involves the insertion of sterile, thin needles strategically placed along the meridians in your body. This will help rebalance your energy flow and unclogged your qi which can be the result of your pain or discomfort. Acupuncture can stimulate your melatonin production, reduce your sleep disruption and lessen anxiety. This treatment can also be used for physical conditions that are causing your insomnia.*
Secondary Therapies for Acupuncture
A common type of massage that can address certain patterns of disharmony in the body is a tui nai, which can also be used to complement an acupuncture treatment. By utilizing both tui nai and acupuncture, you will feel more relaxed and energized.*
For a better therapeutic effect, we might also add cupping to your personalized treatment plan. Cupping therapy is the application of applying heated cups over an area of the body with slight suction. Cupping encourages a better blood flow, getting rid of toxins, and can often relax you. This combination can help create a better energy flow, promoting a better night’s sleep.*
