Acupuncture Reduces Insomnia with Attention Deficits

Acupuncture Mitigates Insomnia Attention Deficits


Acupuncture combats attention deficits in insomnia patients. One of the most significant problems for people with insomnia is daytime drowsiness and inattention, leading to an increased risk of mistakes and accidents. Researchers find that acupuncture has the potential to attenuate these symptoms, as well as improving overall sleep quality. [1]

A study conducted at the First Affiliated Hospital of Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine assessed the effects of acupuncture on insomnia and attention deficits. These outcomes were compared with those of healthy control subjects that did not undergo any intervention during the study.

The results of this study indicate that acupuncture is an effective treatment for attention deficit, a common issue caused by insomnia. Acupuncture improves sleep quality, but also enhances performance in cognitive tasks​, and positively influences neural activity. For more information, contact your local licensed acupuncturist.
