I wrote a post on how acupuncture and Chinese medicine view insomnia here.
"Sixteen studies with 1346 subjects showed acupuncture appeared to significantly reduce fatigue severity measured by Chalder's Fatigue Scale and the Fatigue Severity Scale compared with other types of control."
In a single-centre, single-blinded, and randomized controlled clinical trial seventy-two patients with primary insomnia were randomly assigned into two groups - the acupuncture group, who received acupuncture treatment, and the control group, who received sham acupuncture treatment. Compared with the pretreatment baseline, patients in both groups had varying degrees of improvements in their sleep conditions and improving their psychological health.
