Insomnia is one of the top reasons people seek laser acupuncture. Often, patients come to us reporting insomnia because they are disconnected from other emotional issues they are facing. These repressed emotions can often surface as insomnia, anxiety, or mild depression. As the stresses of modern life take their toll, our minds can no longer relax and our sleep becomes disturbed.
Insomnia is a frequent complaint we hear. Chronic insomnia is defined as no restorative sleep for at least three nights a week for one month or longer. Sleep can be disturbed by a number of reasons, such as stress, anxiety, medications and physical conditions. Western medicine has very little to offer patients in the way of relief. Antidepressant medications can help. But, for people who are hesitant about living on drugs, then acupuncture is the way to go. Laser Acupuncture has an extremely calming effect on the nervous system, and over time, it can help to correct the imbalances causing insomnia, without creating side effects.
