SLEEP. It's critical to how you think and feel.

A lack of sleep can put you on edge, make you feel overwhelmed, or exhausted and zoned out when it matters most - like in important meetings or conversations with people you care about. 

 

Maybe you've always been a light sleeper and any noise - whether it's your dog, cat, or partner snoring - easily wakes you up. But you're beginning to see a strange pattern as you consistently wake up between 1:00-3:00AM. These sleepless nights are beginning to affect your performance as it feels more and more like you're just trudging through the day. 

 

What if I told you these wake-up times are often a result of high stress? Just take a moment to reflect. Have a lot on your mind lately? Find yourself in a spiral of worries? Or notice your dreams have been more vivid? Remembering dreams is a sign of an overactive mind and restless spirit.

 

Did you know there's an acupoint that can calm the mind, create a sense of inner peace, and actually regulate your sleep cycle so you can get a full 8 hours?

 

Not only could you wake up feeling refreshed, energized and have a clearer mindset, but you could for once get through the day feeling on top of your game!

 

As a registered acupuncturist, I often help individuals like yourself, get their sleep back in order. With a solid understanding of how the body heals, I'm going to share with you one of the best Acupressure points you can try at home for regulating your sleep cycle:

This acupoint works because it connects to your heart. Which means it's great for anxiety, it's great for calming the spirit, and it's wonderful for getting you a good night's rest.
