People who are struggling with insomnia usually take various pharmaceuticals, but sometimes these drugs cause side-effects and they cause more harm than good.
Luckily, there is a natural way that will help you treat insomnia and its called acupuncture. The best part about acupuncture is that it doesn’t cause side-effects.
Insomnia can be caused by various factors, but it affects millions of people.
According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine, each person should follow an individual pattern which indicates the imbalance in the body. This imbalance is treated with the use of needles inserted at certain points on the body, which are located along multiple meridians throughout the body.
There are 2 acupuncture points called Heart 7 and Pericardium 6 that can help you treat insomnia. Their combined treatment does miracles when it comes to sleep because they are closely related.
At the Traditional Chinese Medicine, this point is also known as Shenmen, which means Spirit Gate. On the other hand, the name of the pericardium 6 is Neiguan, meaning Inner Gate. They both need to be wide open in order to release all the negative energy which is accumulated In the body and attract positive influence inside.
You can find this point on the anterior side of the transverse crease of the wrist, just on the small depression on the radial side of the ulnar tendon. Nevertheless, it is much better for the patient to needle this point fron the ulnar side, just under the ulnar tendon, which will provide the same effects.
This point is located on the anterior side of the wrist, at 2- finger widths from the transverse crease of the wrist, or in the place between the two tendons (palmaris longus and flexor carpi radialis) which run up the arm.
When these 2 points get avtivated, they cause a strong and intense radiating sensation up the channels.
Activating these 2 points is the best solution for you if you are one of those who are struggling every night to fall asleep.
It should be mentioned that these 2 points are just a small part of the entire structure of acupuncture points, and their stimulation can provide incredible health effects, as the full mind-body-soul approach can help you heal and prevent various health problems.
