Insomnia Treatment

Treatment of Insomnia and Sleep Disorders

Insomnia Treatment with Acupuncture and complimentary medicine

If you or a loved one suffers from Insomnia you know what a terrible experience it is.  Waking up and feeling tired before your feet hit the floor can be incredibly discouraging.  It can ruin your day before it even starts.  Fortunately Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine has been an effective insomnia treatment for thousands of years without the use of disorienting or risky medication.

It’s important to understand the underlying cause of insomnia in order for treatment to be effective.  Are you having a difficult time falling asleep?  Perhaps you wake up often throughout the night.  Maybe you wake up and can’t fall back asleep or just wake up earlier than you would like.  Each of these insomnia symptoms can be a different pattern.  Each requires different treatment.

Acupuncture for Anxiety

Although millions of Americans suffer from anxiety, depression, high levels of stress and other mood conditions many find standard medical treatment unsatisfactory.  Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can help where standard treatments do not by seeking to understand the true underlying cause of the particular mood condition.  Once the root cause is identified and the internal imbalance corrected symptoms can go away or decrease significantly.

What are the causes and symptoms of Anxiety and Stress?

Anxiety is a psychological and physiological condition characterized by excessive worry about everyday life events.  People may find that they cannot relax without the assistance of medication, alcohol or other drugs.  The sufferer is usually unaware of the cause of the anxiety.

Sports Medicine

Sports Medicine

Sports Acupuncture treats a wide variety of injuries

As an athlete I am very familiar with injuries from sprained ankles to torn ligaments in the knee to broken bones.  The Sports Medicine Acupuncturecommon link is that we all want to get back in the game as soon as possible.  The good news is that by understanding the exact injury, acupuncture can speed recovery and lower the risk of further tissue damage.

Because getting you better and back to your sport is a top priority, I work closely with with a number of Sports Medicine specialists across San Francisco.  My network includes several MD’s, a chiropractors, physical therapists, and other movement specialists.
