Clearwater Acupuncture for Insomnia

Wondering if acupuncture in Clearwater might be the right option for your insomnia? According to a 2004 study which was published in the Journal of Neuropsychiatry Clinical Neuroscience, the relationship between insomnia and anxiety along with insomnia was explored. The study concluded that after five weeks of acupuncture treatment, patients in the study had higher levels of melatonin (a sleep hormone that helps trigger the onset of sleep along with helping you stay asleep throughout the night).
