Acupuncture Can Promote Better Sleep Pattern

Sleep can be the best thing in the world or an immense frustration. The American Sleep Association reports that most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep nightly to function their best. Studies from a large sleep study in history proving that few people get the minimum amount of rest they need to stay healthy. Fortunately, there are many natural remedies to help you sleep, and one of those is acupuncture.

How Acupuncture Promotes Better Quality Sleep

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), sleep deprivation is a public health epidemic, which sounds a little extreme, but not when you consider the real impact of sleep deprivation. You will realize that chronic sleep loss takes a significant toll on your body - both inside and out. The short terms signs of sleep deprivation manifest every morning in the mirror after a restless or sleepless night in the form of a dull complexion, dry skin, and dark circles under our eyes. Poor sleep increases skin aging signs and slows down the recovery from environmental stressors like ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

It is something that we see it, too. Low energy, fatigue, stress, anxiety, and worrying are typical when you are sleep deprived. While sleep medications may help deal with insomnia and other sleep disorders in the short term, they are not recommended for long-term use. These medications can be physically and psychologically addictive and have some potentially severe side effects and health risks.

How Does it Work?

Acupuncture helps with better sleep, as well as addressing symptoms that are keeping you up at night. At Way of Wellness, we can help you get to the root of the symptoms' cause. Traditional acupuncture utilizes tiny needles to access individual points on the body. These points help restore balance, alleviate pain, stress, and anxiety, promote better sleep, and improve overall well-being.

After one session, patients noticed better sleep and reduced stress, regardless of their treatment goal. The whole-body approach to wellness focuses on the surface signs of aging and the internal stressors contributing to the aging process. Whether you are trying to look better, feel better, or get a great night's sleep, acupuncture can help whatever your goal. We will help make you a treatment plan that will help you achieve optimal results.

If you have trouble sleeping or regularly experience insomnia or another type of sleep disorder, you should try an acupuncture treatment.
