Insomnia

Insomnia covers a number of different problems including inability to fall asleep, waking frequently during the night, unable to return to sleep and dream-disturbed sleep. Acupuncture can be an effective treatment to help resolve these patterns.

Acupuncture treatment involves diagnosing the underlying causes of insomnia in order to give appropriate treatment. Treatment may involve dietary and lifestyle advice.

Pop star and actress Toyah Willcox has regular acupuncture treatment for insomnia. In the past she’s used acupuncture for pain relief for a hip problem. Watch her interview here.

Acupuncturist Maureen Cromey and Dr Sarah Jarvis discuss how useful acupuncture can be for insomnia on BBC Breakfast News (via You Tube - 14/1/12).
