Counting those infamous proverbial sheep are not going to help you with your chronic insomnia. Even sleeping pills and herbal remedies are only short-term answers for your sleep issues. A natural, long-term treatment to consider is electronic acupuncture. The Aculife Magnetic Wave Therapy device is a great choice, particularly if you want to be able to treat yourself.
Understanding Acupuncture Principles
To truly understand how the Aculife can help your insomnia, you should understand the basic principles of acupuncture. The ancient Chinese discovered that the human body is divided into 12 main meridians, microscopic channels in which life’s energy (chi) flows. These meridians link everything together, branching off like a network from head to toes.
When you are ill or even fatigued, chi is blocked in one or more of these meridians. In traditional acupuncture, stainless steel needles are inserted into key acupoints throughout the body to treat a particular malady. For insomnia, there may be acupoints in the arms and legs, complementing each other to treat this sleep problem from several different directions.
Self-Treating with Acupoint Therapy
Electronic acupuncture devices like the Aculife focuses on the key acupoints on the hand and palm as this area houses the primary key areas for the major meridians. For instance, with insomnia, you would want to treat Shaochong, part of the heart meridian of the hand which is located on the bottom right cuticle of your left pinkie finger.
By referring to the hand map that comes with your acupoint therapy device, you can also target other key areas so you can effectively treat your insomnia from multiple directions. For instance, there is an area on your thumb palm-side which houses not only the fatigue acupoint but also an insomnia one as these two conditions are often intimately intertwined.
The cause of your insomnia will guide you as to where to direct the electromagnetic wave impulses that are delivered from the handheld wand of your Aculife device to your hand. However, what if you are not sure what the cause of your sleep problems are? The detect mode of your electronic acupuncture device can help you pinpoint potential health issues that could be contributing to your insomnia.
