How Acupuncture Can Help
According to the theories of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, conditions such as insomnia are a sign of imbalance in Qi (pronounced “chee”), the vital energy that animates the body and protects it from illness. Qi flow through pathways called meridians, providing nourishment for every cell, tissue, muscle, and organ.
You may find that you sleep better after your very first session, though will most likely receive the most benefit from a series of treatments.
With this form of health care, you can treat symptoms, improve your overall health and well being, and start looking forward to a great night’s sleep every night.
