Four Reasons to Give Acupuncture a Try

Acupuncture can help you sleep better.

Insomnia can affect everything you do; without a good night's sleep, you aren't yourself. You're less productive and more irritable. Most Americans' immediate response is to go to a drug store and buy sleep aid pills night after night. Recent research has found that acupuncture and moxibustion (an ancient Chinese herbal remedy commonly used in conjunction with acupuncture) significantly affect patients' insomnia. According to the Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) patients treated with acupuncture and moxibustion showed better sleep quality, faster time to fall asleep and better daytime functioning. So if you're having trouble getting to bed make an appointment with us before buying more bottles of sleeping pills.
