Peaceful Sleep

Peaceful Sleep

Most people have experienced feeling exhausted from lack of sleep at least once in their life. Poor sleep quality or insufficient hours of sleep can have a detrimental effect on work performance, personal relationships, self esteem, energy and general health. When sleep is less than optimal, people have a tendency to become anxious or worried about sleep, which then worsens the problem and contributes to other health issues.

By regulating the nervous system, acupuncture supports your natural ability to:

  • Fall asleep faster
  • Stay asleep through the night
  • Regulate your body temperature
  • Breathe normally
  • Reduce the frequency of dreams & nightmares and night time urination
  • Wake up feeling refreshed.

Sleep treatments may be particularly useful for people who:

  • Have been diagnosed with sleep apnoea or insomnia
  • Have high stress levels
  • Are going through menopause
  • Experience frequent night time urination
  • Have low energy during the day
  • Travel frequently.
