Do you have difficulty falling asleep at night? Does it take more than half an hour to drift off? Or maybe you can fall asleep alright, but you wake up during the night, unable to fall back to sleep quickly. It is common to wake at 1pm, 3pm or even 4pm and then struggle to fall back to sleep. If you suffer from these types of sleep issues, acupuncture can help. Acupuncture restores your body’s ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. We call it the better sleep treatment.
Better Sleep Treatment – How It Works
Sleeping problems result from half a dozen different internal imbalances. One is called blood deficiency, another is called Liver Qi Stagnation, a third is called Heart Yin deficiency. When you come for treatment we identify the imbalances responsible for your specific sleeping issues. The treatments restore your health and your sleep.
Acupuncture addresses the root problem, as opposed to Western sleep aids that focus just on the symptom. That is why acupuncture delivers long lasting results. The Raleigh Acupuncture Better Sleep Treatment actually restores your body’s natural balance. It improves your sleep and your overall health all at the same time.
Case Study – Poor Sleep for 20 Years
Rita had struggled with sleep issues for over 20 years. She used Ambien but was worried about the side effects. She reluctantly came to acupuncture as a last resort – she was nervous about the needles. We quickly diagnosed her sleep troubles as a combination of Liver Qi Stagnation and Kidney Yin Deficiency.
A treatment plan was created and she started getting acupuncture to correct these imbalances. Within the first six treatments her sleep improved 50%. After 12 treatments she had weened off Ambien and was falling asleep and sleeping through the night. Five years later she was still sleeping well.
What To Expect
The acupuncture treatments are relaxing. We use sterile, single-use needles. Most of the acupuncture points are located on the arms and legs from the elbows and knees down. Many of our patients actually fall asleep during their session. Afterwards you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

What our Clients are Saying
Turning to acupuncture was my last resort to battling insomnia. I had been prescribed two heavy sleep aids with no success. After the third appointment, I went from averaging less than 2.5 hours of sleep to over seven, without any sleep aids. I still go and pretty sure I wouldn’t be here today without success from Raleigh Acupuncture.
Raleigh Acupuncture was recommended by a friend after I mentioned my insomnia and dependency on a sleeping pill. My apprehension was short lived because of the results of my visits to Dr. Mark. With acupuncture treatments and Chinese herbs I was able to begin sleeping well and continue to do so. Dr. Mark is a good listener and encourages his patients in all health issues as well as the original purpose for treatment. Consequently, my knees are stronger and I’m walking better and with more confidence. I haven’t had the need for a cortisone shot in a year and a half. Occasionally, I would use a cane and it’s now somewhere gathering dust. Also, I had a persistent headache that my primary physician had no solution for, and after two acupuncture treatments it’s a thing of the past. Hot flashes were another issue that was treated successfully. I am so grateful to have found a knowledgeable and caring person to treat my ailments, many of which I thought would only grow worse as I aged. Generally, I feel healthier.
I would like to thank Raleigh Acupuncture for the wonderful and very helpful treatments. I had been seeing them for my insomnia, which was making excellent progress at the time and has since been cured. On a previous Monday I was involved in a minor traffic accident. Due to the stress of the accident on Tuesday I awoke in a severe flare-up of my fibromyalgia. The pain was so bad I took pain killers and stayed in bed for the day. The following day I had an appointment with Dr. Mark which I wanted to cancel. My husband suggested I keep the appointment and tell Dr. Mark about the pain. After our discussion, he modified the treatment he had planned for me and treated the pain. I came home, took another pain pill and went back to bed. The following morning I woke pain free and have been since, which is about 2 to 3 months. Thanks again Raleigh Acupuncture!
I became a patient of Raleigh Acupuncture in 2007. I did a lot of research prior to selecting them and I never regretted it. Over the years, I have been treated for various conditions – insomnia, an auto-immune disease, a herniated disk, etc. I have recommended Raleigh Acupuncture to various friends and family members.
I highly recommend the practitioners of Raleigh Acupuncture. I’ve seen them for several years and have always recommended them highly and without hesitation to many of my friends, all of whom have been equally thrilled with the care provided. They are genuinely interested in your health and general well-being, with a focus on getting you healed quickly and gently. My hot flashes are GONE! and the Chinese herbs for sleeplessness are awesome too!
I haven’t slept well for 20 years. That all changed when I was treated at Raleigh Acupuncture for my insomnia. They said it would take 12 treatments, so I took a leap of faith and tried it. I saw changes start to happen after just a few treatments. Over the course of three months I was able to sleep better and better. I weaned myself off of Ambien, and am now sleeping like a baby again. I never thought I’d see the day! It really worked. And guess what? I’ve got more energy now. Imagine that – a good night sleep gives you more energy! Rocket science! Thanks guys!
