Sleep Disorder Treatment
Lack of sleep for one night can trouble you the next day. Imagine having to live with a sleep deficit disorder where you cannot sleep. It can be terrifying, frustrating and cause a serious imbalance in the mind and the body, not to mention that it will cause a ripple effect(s). The obvious choice is to pop a pill with the hope that you can catch some shut-eye. Unfortunately, a series of pills will invariably cloud the normal brain functioning, cut back on social interaction, cause an upset in work life resulting in limited economic stability and finally bodily imbalances.
Evidence has proven that this ancient Chinese science is slowing being taken on as a mainstream treatment in curing physiological and psychological disorders. The advantage of going through the alternative medication route is that every particular symptom is taken into account by a qualified therapist. For instance, if you are experiencing limited sleep, the cause of the problem may be deeper. A trigger can cause an upset in the way the mind functions leading to a depressed state of mind. On the other hand, a physical problem or even something emotional can result in sleep apnea. An accurate assessment is factored based on the individual so that the practitioner understands the extent of the problem and the time when the incident occurred.
The acupuncturist at the clinic located in Columbus, OH uses sterilized needles that are extremely thin and long. He inserts it in various regions of the body that are known as medians. These are also known as pressure points – where the energy flows. The needles do not cause any pain, but when you do notice them, there is a chance that you can twinge, but in reality, they do not cause pain or bleeding whatsoever. These needles channelize the life energy in various parts of the body that are blocked from responding, which could have multiple reasons. The obstructive power that has been the cause of the problem is erased and ultimately, you will be able to sleep.
Different types of sleep apnea
Chinese medication defines the different types of sleep apnea in a couple of ways. The first where one finds it difficult going to sleep, the next – waking up in the middle of the night unable to get back to the normal course of rest. Some people suffer from waking up at certain parts of the morning without being able to get back to sleep. Others experience limited sleep because of lucid dreams while in general, some may be sleep deprived because of late hours at work or an underlying emotional or physical problem. To get the best effect of the treatment requires that you visit the acupuncturist for a couple of days a week, based on the extent of the problem. Acupuncture, as a science, ensures a certain calm resulting in a peaceful sleep. Of course, as you forget the worries, you will feel rested.
