Having difficulty falling asleep? Waking up frequently at night and not feeling refreshed in the morning? Always having vivid dreams during sleep?
In Chinese medicine, insomnia (失眠) can be attributed to internal organ disorders. The root reasons include blood deficiency in heart and spleen (心脾两虚), disharmony between heart and kidney (心肾不交), liver fire turning into heat (肝郁化火) and phlegm disturbing the heart (痰蒙心窍) etc.
Acupuncture can help with insomnia in a natural way. With pulse-taking and tongue diagnosis, a TCM practitioner can identify what organs are involved, the treatment method can be formulated by tonifying, reducing or harmonizing the energy and blood in the corresponding meridians.
