acupuncture for sleep

If you are a sufferer of poor sleep you know how frustrating it can be to spend the night tossing and turning and not being able to sleep. If you have trouble going to sleep or you wake often during the night, acupuncture may be something which can help you return to a peaceful nights sleep.

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare over 48% of Australians suffer from some sort of sleep problem. Furthermore over a quarter of children aged 12-13 and over half of 16-17 year olds get less than the recommended amount of sleep for their age. The cause of insomnia can be varied, from emotional stress, poor diet, over consumption of caffeine and alcohol or prescription medication. Research has certainly found link between insomnia and over all risk of chronic health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Traditional medical treatments involve using sedatives, which are often addictive and do not address the cause of the problem.

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical technique that has been used for centuries to treat a variety of health conditions, including sleep disorders and in recent years, acupuncture has gained popularity in the Western world as an alternative and complementary therapy for insomnia and other sleep-related issues.

In this Shine Health blog post, we will explore the benefits of acupuncture for sleep, backed by research and clinical evidence.
