There’s nothing worse than getting into bed at night only to find yourself tossing and turning and not getting the sleep you need. Millions of people have a hard time falling or staying asleep. For some insomnia is an occasional problem while for many can be a serious on-going struggle.

 Sleepless nights leave you feeling tired, irritable and unable to focus or pay attention. It can have a serious impact on your work performance and wear away at personal relationships. Prescription and over the counter medications are common treatments for insomnia but, they often come with side effects, dependency or leave you feeling just as groggy in the morning as if you hadn’t slept.

 Sound sleep is essential for optimal health. Insomnia may start out as a minor annoyance but, it can lead to larger problems. Our bodies need that down time to rejuvenate, grow new tissues and maintain balance. Symptoms of insomnia can include:

  • difficulty falling asleep

  • waking through the night

  • can’t “shut your mind off” at night

  • waking early and not being able to go back to sleep

  • feeling tired, irritable and moody throughout the day

 Fortunately, insomnia doesn’t have to take over your life.

 How does acupuncture help?

We’ll address your insomnia from the root. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine work together to bring your body back to a state of balance allowing you to get a restful night’s sleep. Stress, certain medications, anxiety and pain can all take a toll on your overall health. Using acupuncture and Chinese medicine we can get to the core of your sleep problems and treat it from the root.

This is an all natural approach your doctor may not know about. Your doctor may have told you that you have to live with your insomnia or that prescription sleep aids are your best option. That doesn’t mean there’s no treatment, it just means your doctor has run out of ideas or there aren’t conventional treatments available. I find that people who don’t respond well to conventional treatment often respond very well to this natural approach.

We help you awaken your body's natural healing system. Despite what you may have been led to believe, your body is not “broken” and it IS possible to get a good nights sleep. That’s because your body never forgets how to heal itself. you just needs the right support. Your body makes its own internal calming substances and medicines, and acupuncture and herbs help it do just that.

I focus on how you FEEL. While everyone else is just telling you to calm down, or take another medication – I focus on YOU, your story, and how you feel.

I pride myself on knowing that so many of my patients are referred by people in the community and other patients. I look forward to serving you and your community.
