Hello Calgary Acupuncture Enthusiasts,
Insomnia and poor quality sleep are common problems for many of my Calgary Acupuncture patients (Airdrie too). Regularly getting a good night’s sleep is for some a luxury they’ve not experienced in a long time and has a negative impact on almost all aspects of daily life and overall health.
Benefits of Better Sleep:
- Improved mood
- Lower cortisol levels (stress hormone)
- It’s easier to maintain or lose weight
- Improved mental function (like memory)
- Lower inflammation in the body
- And more.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are safe and effective in the treatment of insomnia regardless of the cause (except maybe for your kids waking you up early). With the use of ultra-fine acupuncture needles, your Calgary Acupuncturists Michelle Beaubier and Dr. Christianne Parrott can help bring relief from your sleepless nights.
Though it is not an overnight fix (all puns intended), over the course of several treatments your sleep should improve either by falling asleep more easily, staying asleep longer or just improving the depth and quality of sleep. There is also no risk of dependency with Acupuncture like there is with prescription medication and no negative side effects. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to continue getting frequent acupuncture treatments indefinitely to see long term benefits, though some percentage of people do require ongoing “tune-ups” every month or two to maintain their quality of sleep over the long term.
If snoring is keeping you up, either from yourself or your partner, acupuncture can also improve many types of snoring.
Other Benefits of Acupuncture:
- stops muscle spasms
- regulates the nervous system
- reduces anxiety
- regulates hormonal imbalances
- calms the mind
- reduces inflammation
