Wake Up Feeling Refreshed: Learn How Acupuncture for Insomnia Works


Everyone needs sleep. It’s an essential part of life that helps our bodies recover and heal. Unfortunately, many people suffer from insomnia or sleep disturbance, which can have a significant negative impact on their lives. Conventional medical treatments for insomnia can be frustrating and sometimes don’t work. But there is good news. Scientific research has shown that acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for insomnia, and many people have found great relief from their symptoms.

Acupuncture is a treatment that involves stimulating specific points on the body with thin needles that enhances the body’s ability to recover.

There are several ways acupuncture can help people with insomnia:

  • Stimulate the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep.
  • Reduce anxiety and stress, both of which can cause sleep disturbance.
  • Reduce pain and discomfort, which can make it difficult to fall asleep.

Scientific research has consistently shown that acupuncture is an effective treatment for insomnia. A study published in the journal of Sleep Medicine in 2017 found that acupuncture treatment is effective in increasing insomnia patients’ sleep quality and improving their psychological health.

In a systematic review of randomized control trials involving 3811 patients published in the journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in 2009 found that acupuncture is an effective treatment for insomnia. These are just a few examples of the numerous studies that support the efficacy of acupuncture for sleep disturbance.

What do these scientific studies mean for those who suffer from insomnia? Simply put, acupuncture can help you sleep better.
