Abstract:The article presents a study in which 65 patients were treated with acupuncture for insomnia. The pre- and post-trial conditions of 65 patients with insomnia were used as the control to observe the progress made by the research protocol. A 32-gauge needle was quickly inserted at GV-20 at a 15 degree angle backwards for about 1 cun against the flow of the du mai. Needling at M-HN-1 was the same. The needles were inserted into PC-6 and LR-3 between 0.5 and 0.8 cun; at SP-6 and KI-3 were inserted between 0.8 and 1.0 cun. The results show that the sleep had gotten significantly better or more than 3 hours of sleep per night and there was an increase in the depth/soundness of the sleep.
