Acupuncture treatment for Insomnia in Brisbane

Insomnia acupuncture Brisbane


Do you experience Insomnia, sleep disturbance or poor sleep quality?

Acupuncture has been clinically shown to help!

 

Keep hitting the snooze button? Tired of waking up tired? Or just not getting to sleep at all? Insomnia isn’t just lack of sleep; it’s also lack of quality sleep. Many Australians (estimates suggest approximately 1.5 million of the adult population) experience insomnia in some form.

Quality sleep is crucial to an individual’s wellbeing as this is the dominant period of mental and physical recovery, be it from injury, illness or the pressures of everyday life. Whether there is an inability to fall asleep, difficulty staying asleep or experiencing unsatisfying sleep the end result is a decrease in life quality and a higher risk of developing associated conditions such as depression.

Get your bounce back with Acupuncture; clinically shown to be an effective treatment in the alleviation of insomnia and symptoms of sleep disorders and disturbance!

 

How can Acupuncture help Insomnia?

Acupuncture Brisbane
  • Acupuncture has been clinically demonstrated to improve sleep quality and duration.
  • Acupuncture has been scientifically shown to increase nocturnal melatonin secretion (a neurotransmitter that regulates sleep patterns).
  • Acupuncture can be used as an adjunct to sleep medication with systematic reviews showing that a combined approach provides better quality sleep than medication alone.
  • Acupuncture is well known in pain management and the alleviation of depression, anxiety, stress and other related conditions that may contribute to insomnia.
  • Acupuncture is well known as a natural remedy for insomnia and Chinese Herbal Medicine provides a natural alternative to sedatives and sleeping tablets.
