Acupuncture for Insomnia


Trouble Sleeping?  In our Portsmouth, NH office, we offer multiple options for the treatment of your insomnia. 

By using Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine or a combination of both, we can offer a safe, natural approach in the treatment of insomnia. 

Insomnia is typically defined as trouble falling asleep or staying asleep.  Frequent waking, no matter the duration, may cause the sleep to be unrefreshing. 

People who suffer with insomnia may experience low energy, mood problems, and issues with completion of daily tasks.  An inability to get a good night’s sleep can also impact the immune system, making you more vulnerable to other illnesses.  The longer you’ve had issues, the more intense these problems will be.  

Insomnia can be caused by a range of factors including situational stress, environmental triggers or emotional issues.  Insomnia is rarely a disease by itself, but rather a manifestation of some other underlying issue. 

Acupuncture helps to treat insomnia through the stimulation of certain brain chemicals such as dopamine, serotonin, and stress-related hormones.  Acupuncture has a relaxing, calming effect on the body and mind, making it easier to fall asleep.
