Fatigue can affect us in many ways, including:
Chronic fatigue - constantly feeling low on energy for years
Insomnia - trouble falling asleep and/or waking during the night
Wanting to sleep too much or at the wrong times
Brain fog, trouble focusing
Standard treatments are limited to trying to determine the cause of fatigue (such as a hormonal imbalance), treating insomnia (often with sleeping medication), or giving general lifestyle advice. Often there isn’t a diagnosis or clear treatment for fatigue, and for some it just becomes part of everyday life.
How Can Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Help Fatigue?
From a Chinese medicine perspective, fatigue is often a sign that your body’s natural rhythms of rest and recovery have been disrupted somewhere. We will try to get a bigger picture by asking about your sleep quality, digestive function, stress and pain or tension. Often one, or several, of these areas are impacting your energy levels.
We use acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to help restore your body’s natural healing and recovery mechanisms so that you have the energy you need, and your body is in a better state to keep it that way into the future. Every treatment is tailored to you and what you need.
