Sleeping is the only moment in our busy life when brain gets to rest and recover strength.  It is an agony for people with insomnia because they don’t get enough sleep, which interrupts daily life. Many people take medications to get sleep, but they also suffer from side effects of the medications like poor memory and anxiety.  
Acupuncture for insomnia can correct the imbalances causing insomnia without creating side effects and increases production of certain chemicals in the brain, including serotonin, which appear to aid sleep. Acupuncture for insomnia and Chinese herbal medicine used in conjunction can be an effective therapy for both transient and chronic insomnia. Acupuncture for insomnia improves sleeping patterns, decreases pain and promotes deeper breathing.

Acupuncture treats insomnia by clearing out obstruction in nerve and muscle channels, allowing qi and blood to flow smoothly. It encourages brain to secrete more serotonin, which guides in sleeping, and thus reducing sleep issues caused by lack of serotonin. Acupuncture for insomnia effectively treats the various symptoms associated with fatigue and can strengthen a weakened immune system, nourish blood and increase lymph circulation. In cases of chronic fatigue, acupuncture for insomnia is often integrated into conventional treatment as a complementary therapy.
