Sleep can be as important as nutrition and exercise when it comes to maintaining optimal health. In fact, many major restorative functions in the body such as tissue repair, muscle growth, and protein synthesis occur almost exclusively during sleep. But in today’s world of hyper-connectivity, sleep is often one of the first things to decline when people feel stressed out or lack balance in their lives.
Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine can bring lasting relief to patients suffering from sleep disorders or challenges with falling or staying asleep. Acupuncture treats sleep conditions by stimulating the brain to release natural “feel good” chemicals (endorphins and serotonin) in the body. This process helps patients who may be stuck in a stressed out state return to a state of relaxation and emotional balance.
We work as partners with our patients to create a comprehensive, customized treatment plan ranging from acupuncture and herbal medicine to lifestyle changes that can enhance sleep quality. Our specialized approach has helped us achieve long-lasting, optimal health outcomes for our patients.
