Why is good sleep important?

Sleep is essential for normal mental and physical functioning. It is vital to get enough sleep every night to be able to function at one's best. Sleep is a time for the brain

and body to engage in vigorous growth and repair. It helps restore our bodies, keeps our minds sharp, and increases our productivity. A good night's sleep keeps the

body healthy by balancing fluids, hormones, and blood sugar. Sleep plays a vital role in improving moods because it regulates serotonin levels, often low due to


As we age, the amount of sleep required by an individual varies. Several additional factors can affect an individual's need for sleep, but getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep each

night in the adult years is recommended by doctors [1].

How can acupuncture help for sleeping disorders?

What can I expect during my acupuncture appointment for sleeping?

1. Taking your medical history

Generally, your first acupuncture for sciatica consultation will be longer than follow­up sessions due to the initial interview. You will be asked questions about your

current symptoms and your health history.

During your initial interview, we will take a thorough case history looking into various areas of your life. The standard questionnaire may include medication, diet,

sleeping patterns, digestive and urinary functions, sexual function, menstrual period, emotional quality, and a basic level of stress questions.

We are here to listen to you and take your views into account, respecting your individuality and preferences. Please remember that this is also your time to

express your concerns and come up with questions at any time during the consultation. The follow­up sessions would usually take less time.

2. Body diagnosis

The body diagnosis comes after the initial interview. The main goal is to find the underlying cause of your sleeping disorder and treat it from the root. Taking the

pulse in both wrists is the cornerstone of any Chinese medicine diagnosis as it gives the practitioner information about your energetic body from the Chinese point

of view. That will take a minute or so, and you will experience it several times during and after the treatment.

3. Placing the needles

Having all the above information into account, the practitioner will make the diagnosis and proceed with the treatment, which will consist of the gentle insertion of

3 to 6 single­use sterile needles. It may also involve the use of moxibustion (the burning of a medical herb either directly on the body or indirectly from an inch or

so away). Needles will stay for about 20 minutes, and the final removal of the needles is usually painless.
