In the era of electronic screens and fast-paced urban lifestyles, it is important to remember that the number one way to nurture your body is through restful sleep. Unfortunately, as humankind progresses, we are making it more difficult to unplug from the noise and distraction. People in New York are finding it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep, which negatively impacts their daily operations and contributes to a poor overall quality of life. What better way to combat these modern sleep dilemmas than with the help of an ancient healing art?
TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is an ancient healing art founded nearly 4,000 years ago in the Buddhist monasteries of China and Tibet. It integrates spiritual beliefs with theories of life force and bioenergetics. It relies upon the methodology that all forms of body disharmony, illness and disease are effectively treated by restoring harmony to the Qi along the energy meridians of your body, thus healing organs and body systems. This includes sleep disorders.
At Community Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Park Slope, we synergize the power of TCM with conventional chiropractic to give your body a multi-dimensional support network. As it relates to sleep, there are two primary energy meridians that apply: one, which is responsible for the quality of sleep, and one which regulates proper timing and duration of sleep. By balancing the bio-energy along these meridians, restful and restorative sleep can return to your life. I can also make recommendations pertaining to lifestyle habits and diet that could be affecting your sleep.
The exact type of acupuncture treatment that will benefit you can only be determined through collaboration between the client and a licensed practitioner. We will determine the root cause of your sleep disturbance and create a plan that will improve your sleep quality. If you are suffering from sleep problems in the Brooklyn area, call our office in Park Slope at (718) 398-3100 so we can get you on the road to rest!
