Sleep Clinic Introduction
Sleep is the most precious way we have of renewing the body on a daily basis. A person who sleeps well wakens renewed in both body and spirit. Day to day problems are more easily solved and life is enjoyed the way it should be.
Without a good night’s sleep we become moody, irritable and exhausted. We are unable to make rational decisions and ﬁnd the problems of life too difﬁcult to deal with. We can even fall asleep at the wheel. Over time, poor sleep patterns can lead to extreme anxiety and health problems. It’s important to make sure that we are sleeping well. Some people have been suffering lack of proper sleep for a long time and wrongly accept it as part of their lives.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western medicine have different approaches to sleep. If there is problem other than, for example pain, the Western medical approach often links lack of or poor sleep to emotional problems such as stress, anxiety or depression. This can often be the case. However, with Traditional Chinese Medicine , while stress, anxiety and depression are taken into account, the problem is more complex. In TCM poor quality sleep is considered a dysfunction or imbalance of the fundamental substances of blood, energy, Yin, Yang, Jing and Shen, or of the major organ system.
In Chinese classical medical textbooks there is a lot devoted to the different types of sleep deprivation. In these books scholars talk about : difﬁculty in falling asleep, dream-disturbed sleep, waking up easily, or waking up at a speciﬁc time every night and ﬁnding difﬁculty in getting back to sleep. Unlike Western medicine, a TCM diagnosis regarding sleep, is developed speciﬁcally for the individual patient. While Acupuncture can usually quickly solve the problem of lack of sleep, it is important that underlying issues are addressed . Good sleep in terms of quality and quantity is pivotal to good health.
Clinical studies have shown that Acupuncture helps release extra neurotransmitters to the central nervous system, including serotonin which regulates sleep patterns. Acupuncture promotes natural sleeping patterns. It offers a drug free alternative without side effects.
