About this course
Sleeping disorders have become one of the most frequently encountered problems in contemporary practice. More than 30% of the world population suffers from insomnia. An increasing number of patients mention sleep impairment as a primary or secondary complaint. Both the quantity and/or the quality of their sleep are not satisfactory and this could affect moods, weight, concentration and cause premature aging. Furthermore, it could lead to more serious health conditions such as chronic fatigue, heart disease, lower immune system function, anxiety and depression, and so on. Sleeping disorders include difficulties in falling asleep, staying asleep, early waking, dream disturbed sleep. Acupuncture can be very effective in treating these conditions.
In this workshop Cinzia will discuss the most common causes of sleeping problems, from a wider, not just from an East-Asian medicine perspective. She will examine the pathologies of sleep and discuss treatment strategies and point prescriptions in details. In addition, she will share case histories from her own practice, which cover anxious and stressed patients, menopausal and post-menopausal women, and the elderly.
