Acupuncture and Narcolepsy.
Acupuncture is effective for treating disturbed sleep-wake patterns and calms the nervous system. It achieves this by clearing obstructions in the muscle and nerve channels and facilitating the flow of qi. Acupuncture is known to promote deeper breathing, better sleeping patterns and a decrease in various pains that cause sleep difficulties. This ancient oriental therapy can increase production of valuable endorphins and so reduce any chronic pain that may exacerbate sleep disorders.
Chinese herbs are known to be effective in the treatment of sleep disorders; longan fruit, golden thread, mimosa bark, sour jujube seed may be combined in formulas prescribed and tailored to individual symptoms. Tui na can improve the flow of qi along the vertebral back region, reducing chronic back pain that may contribute to sleep difficulties. Also the practices of Tai chi or qigongare recommended for fitness and relaxation.
