When we talk about insomnia, we’re not just talking about difficulties of falling asleep but the quality of that sleep – if it eventually comes. According to a survey by the Office of National Statistics, ‘around 29% of adults reported experiencing sleep problems the week before interview’. And these problems affect women more than men.

In deciding how to treat your sleep issues, Joshua will talk to you about your symptoms and how long you’ve been experiencing problems. Treatment and discussion might involve advice on ‘sleep hygiene’ to encourage better sleep routines, such as avoiding stimulants and maintaining regular sleeping hours within a suitable environment for sleep.

Both acupuncture and homeopathy have been successfully used to help calm the central nervous system, reminding your body how it feels to rest easily and enhancing sleep. Both can also be effective in the treatment of chronic pain, and the reduction of anxiety, common prompts for sleep disturbance.

How we can help:

  • Improved relaxation and quality of sleep
  • Reduction of the anxiety and worry associated with insomnia
  • Increased sense of wellbeing
  • Pain relief
