Insomnia isn’t just tossing and turning at night, it’s a serious problem that usually entails either not being able to fall asleep, or not being able to stay asleep. Insomnia can be the result of a number of causes, including stress, depression, anxiety, irregular work schedules, medications, chronic pain, or hyperthyroidism. If you‘re struggling with insomnia I think you’ll find acupuncture to be extremely effective in addressing the underlying imbalances that are its cause. Acupuncture has a calming effect on the nervous system, facilitating the flow of oxygen-enriched blood & energy thus relaxing the system. My Austin acupuncture patients who have come to me for insomnia have experienced benefits like deeper breathing, improved digestive abilities, better sleeping patterns, a decrease in various pains and an overall sense of wellbeing. My Austin Acupuncture and Wellness Center focuses on each patient’s individual symptoms, using a combination of acupuncture, whole food supplements, and herbal medicine to build a healing protocol that enables the body to begin healing itself.
