It's the most wonderful time of the year, but for people with insomnia it can be anything but. If you're struggling to get some shut-eye this holiday season, don't despair - help is on the way! Acupuncture has been shown to be an effective treatment for insomnia, and in this blog post we'll explore three different ways acupuncture can help you get some much-needed sleep. So read on and prepare to snooze your way through the holidays!
The value of a good night's slumber cannot be overstated. When you are without it, your body and mind suffer from the effects- both emotional health and physical health after several days without getting enough restful zzz's. Unfortunately, more often than not, people dealing with insomnia reach for an over-the-counter medicine or a prescription sleep aid which have side effects and can lead to addiction. A natural solution can help you avoid these "side effects" and have you dozing off at bedtime. For 2000 years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has helped people fall into dreamland using Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine.
1. Acupuncture can help you get 40 winks by affecting the body's circadian cycle by impacting the levels of several chemicals and neurotransmitters that induce sleep. Studies show that Acupuncture can stimulate the pineal gland in the brain to produce melatonin which induces sleep at night and increase adenosine in the blood, which inhibits arousal or rather causes drowsiness.
2. Auricular Acupuncture can help you take your treatment home with you. Ear seeds can empower you to refresh your Acupuncture treatment for 4 to 7 days. This is fast. It only takes about 5 minutes to apply ear seeds. Once the seeds are in place, gently massage them 3 times per day to help you get your shut-eye at night. With Swarovski Crystal ear seeds, you can get your Christmas Bling on and be the talk of the fiesta while you take your siesta!
3. Herbal Medicine is stellar at helping people hit the hay. A formula can be specially crafted for your specific sleep needs. It does not matter if you struggle with falling asleep, staying asleep, or quality of sleep. In the World of TCM, you are an individual, and the medicine is geared toward your specific needs.
