There’s nothing like a good night sleep to help us tackle our various duties with the enthusiasm they require. And there’s nothing like a poor night sleep–or many of them in a row–to push us closer to despair. Sleep is essential to give our brains and bodies a chance to recovery, to build our immune systems, to regulate hormones and emotions, to help us to process and store memories, and to allow us to feel…well…human.
One of the most common “side effects” of acupuncture is improved sleep along with an overall feeling of relaxation. Studies have shown that acupuncture can improve sleep quality, decrease the amount of time it takes to fall asleep, and increase nighttime melatonin production as well as total sleep time. At Blume Acupuncture and Wellness, we’d love to help you get the good night sleep you deserve.
