Do you find it difficult to sleep? Do you wake up in the night and can’t get back to sleep? These are the exhausting symptoms of insomnia, which can affect not only sleep but also your everyday life. Having difficulty sleeping is quite a common problem, especially when a person is stressed, worried or upset about something. At least one-third of Australians experience significant sleep problems at some point in their lives, although only 5% will need professional treatment. Insomnia usually lasts for a short time, although it can go on for months or even years. Some people want to solve everything with sleeping pills and other similar drugs however others are aware and afraid of the side effects of these kinds of drugs. Acupuncture for insomnia has been widely known to help people suffering from sleep problems over the past few years as an alternative treatment.
