In Chinese medicine the ‘shen’ or consciousness is in your head during the day. At night, when we go to sleep, our shen goes into our hearts. If you do not have a good quality or quantity of blood, you will have a hard time going to sleep, taking 15 minutes or more. There are some things you can do to help build your blood. Eat red things, red meats in small quantities, cherries, berries, grapes, and beets are great to help build blood.
If you are falling asleep easily but waking up a lot, this is usually heat. Heat will cause your shen to float and not root properly in your heart for the night. To help cool the heat you can eat fresh pears or watermelon or drink about 6 oz of iced mint a few hours after dinner.
These are generalities. Please talk to your acupuncturist to help you find out what is keeping you up at night.
I had a misaligned rib from lifting weights. My upper left back hurt a little, but my lower right back was giving me an intense pain due to my body overcompensating for my original injury. After seeing Cathy for one treatment, my pain in my lower back went away within 24 hours. I'm not sure how it worked, but it worked. I'd recommend having a consultation with Cathy to see if acupuncture can help you as well.
I went to Cathy for help to stop smoking. After just one session my anxiety about it went away. I didn't dread it and the therapy worked! No crabbiness!
As a side benefit I am not waking up anxious and scared because of my PTSD condition. I also had a strong numbness in my left hand and that is better too! Not to mention a sore back which she also was able to help.
I highly recommend Cathy!
I suffer from a variety of ailments, but am mostly plagued with chronic back pain. Doctor after doctor only wanted to prescribe pain meds, but I wanted to try something different. Went to Cathy and before the treatment, my back was so tender to touch that I couldn't even lie on it without experiencing pain, after the visit, I told her I hadn't felt that good in over 10 years.
I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to be free of pain without having to use prescription meds.
I never tried acupuncture before and don't like taking meds. My wife recommended I try it and I have to admit, it really works. I've been telling others about my experience and now they want to try it, too!
Looking forward to a better way of getting healthy again.
