• Sleep Issues

  • We are all familiar with that feeling when we have had a bad night’s sleep…fatigued, irritable, inability to concentrate. But when insufficient sleep becomes routine, the potential for long-term health concerns increases. A regular lack of sleep has been associated with chronic medical conditions such diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Studies have linked insufficient sleep with weight gain and obesity as well as a weakened immune system.

    There are many reasons, emotional and physical, that sleep can be disrupted. According Asian medicine theory, good health happens when all systems are balanced and working together. Sleep issues can occur when there is an imbalance or obstruction affecting the free flow of qi (pronounced ‘chee’). When qi does not flow smoothly, pain, weakness, and illness can result.

    Acupuncture is an effective natural way to stimulates the body’s own capacity to rebalance itself.

 Julie will work with you to find the underlying imbalance and obstructions and create a treatment plan specific to your needs. By inserting fine, sterile needles at specific points in the body, she will seek to restore balance and enable the natural movement of qi through the body.

    Julie may also suggest other lifestyle adjustments to enhance treatment and speed healing. This may include diet, exercise, meditation and breathing practices.
