Acupuncture For Insomnia & Sleep Problems In London
Insomnia, Sleep Problems & Lifestyle
Your sleep patterns will be considered as a part of the acupuncture treatment. During the acupuncture therapy we will also explore the effects of your lifestyle on your sleep problems or sleep deprivation. Eating or drinking to excess, or a simple stomach upset can be enough to cause problems sleeping. When we are "over-tired", either through repeated over-work or emotional turmoil causing excessive thinking, we may find it difficult to sleep. Shift workers are more likely to have insomnia due to the disruption of internal daylight and night-time body clock, affecting their sleep patterns.
Causes Of Insomnia Or Sleep Problems
In the Chinese Medicine approach, good sleep is dependant on the state of the mind. For this reason a shock, trauma, injury or illness can all bring on insomnia. It is said that thinking too much and worrying can weaken the body's ability to flourish. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), if any internal organ is in disharmony this too may be a contributing factor to developing insomnia. Acupuncture therapy can be offered to support you in overcoming insomnia.
