Acupuncture for Treatment of Insomnia

In a recently published review, researchers examined 46 studies (3,811 patients) that examined the use of acupuncture in treatment of insomnia. Results revealed that acupuncture was superior to sleeping pills regarding the number of patients whose total sleep time increased by more than three hours. The researchers also found that using acupuncture in combination with herbal remedies was more effective than using herbs alone to improve sleep.
