Suffering from Insomnia?
Imagine Laserworks can help you sleep better!


Insomnia Treatmnet With Acupuncture

Laser Therapy treats Insomnia and Sleeping Disorders by going to the root of the problem.

Insomnia may be one of the most common afflictions in North America.

Estimates run as high as 60% of the population suffering from it in at various times. In many cases, there is a very close connection between insomnia and anxiety.  There is some confusion when the two conditions coexist as to their causal relationship. It is most likely the case that the two feed off of each other in a back and forth manner.  Anxiety leads to insomnia, and the lack of proper rest heightens anxiety.

How can Bio-Electric Therapy Help Insomnia?

Let’s first look at the possible types of insomnia and understand why they occur. Knowing what type of insomnia you are experiencing can help your specialist provide the most effective treatment for you.

Possible Types of Insomnia:

  • I have difficultly falling asleep: The Yang Qi cannot enter the Yin areas of the body leading to insomnia.

  • I wake up often during the night: Internal heat is stuck in the body causing insomnia.

  • I wake up early and can’t go back to sleep: Poor lifestyle may have damaged your Kidney Yin energy. Heat from Kidney Deficiency is rising up causing insomnia.

  • I have excessive dreaming during sleep: The brain doesn’t quiet down, and it is difficult to relax due to Liver deficiency Heat or Heart Fire causing insomnia.

  • I can’t sleep at all: Not enough blood due to either Spleen or Liver deficiency causing insomnia.

When you receive a treatment, your nervous system begins to calm down. The specialist is doing deep work by unraveling your subconscious stresses, balancing your Qi, and releasing the causes of your insomnia. You may even fall asleep on the treatment table.

You should sleep the best the first night after a treatment; however, several days later symptoms of your insomnia may start to return. This is in indication that you should receive your treatment for insomnia more frequently.  It usually takes several treatments per week, for several weeks to fully resolve chronic insomnia.

Helpful Tips for Good Sleep

As evening comes, the day transitions from Yang to Yin; you too should adjust your behaviour to improve your sleep and prevent insomnia. Try these helpful home remedy tips to complement your insomnia treatment:

  • Quiet the Mind: Breathing exercises, meditation, and other forms of relaxation can help relieve your insomnia.

  • Exercise: Vigorous exercise is best in the morning, not at night. Stick to relaxing stretches in the evening that unravel your stress.

  • Work: Mental work is best completed during the day. Excessive thinking at night can over-stimulate your mind.

  • Warm Bath: Soaking your feet in warm water at night will assist in bringing your Yang Qi down to the Yin areas of your body preventing insomnia.

  • Nutrition: Avoiding spicy food, large meals, alcohol, and caffeine near bedtime as these all create internal heat in your body.

  • Establish an Evening Routine: Avoid blue lights 2-3 hours before bed, dim the lights, play calming music, stretch, try calming herbal teas.

Insomnia is one of the top reasons people seek laser acupuncture. Often, patients come to us reporting insomnia because they are disconnected from other emotional issues they are facing. These repressed emotions can often surface as insomnia, anxiety, or mild depression. As the stresses of modern life take their toll, our minds can no longer relax, and our sleep becomes disturbed.
