How Does Acupuncture Alleviate Insomnia?

Acupuncture treatment can correct imbalances that cause sleep disorders. One way it does this is by increasing production of certain chemicals in the brain, including melatonin, which may aid sleep.

Insomnia, or sleep deprivation, can show up in four different forms:

  • Sleep Onset Insomnia: Difficulty falling asleep

  • Sleep Maintenance Insomnia: Frequent or sustained awakenings

  • Sleep Offset Insomnia: Early morning awakenings

  • Nonrestorative Sleep: Persistent sleepiness regardless of adequate sleep duration

Each of these types of insomnia can be caused by a variety of sources. Determining the cause is an important part of diagnosis and treatment. For example, if persistent pain is keeping a person from falling or staying asleep, we can treat that pain to alleviate insomnia.

Acupuncture is a highly effective treatment due to its ability to be customized for each patient, especially for those who suffer complex issues like insomnia. Even if the root cause of the insomnia is the same for two patients, an acupuncturist may prescribe different treatments due to each person’s medical history or current health.
