The challenging Insomnia patient

As a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine most of you have probably encountered the challenge of treating insomnia successfully. Despite very clear syndrome differentiation in the books or school materials, Insomnia seems to be very challenging in practice. In this one-day workshop I will share channel theory insights on the treatment of Insomnia, more specifically, on how to utilize the Shao Yin Heart and Kidney channels for successful treatment of Insomnia. After years of challenging Insomnia patients in the clinic I have finally realized a breakthrough approach that yields success time and time again.

Insomnia is a condition that can have serious consequences in the daily life of patients, leading even to physical and psychological problems. Insomnia can worsen or even cause disorders like high blood pressure, arrhythmias, weight gain, poor memory and concentration and many more disorders. In addition, in patients complaining many disorders that also suffer from insomnia, adopting a treatment approach that emphasizes balancing sleep often results in optimal clinical results for their main complaints or disorders. TCM has been dealing with Insomnia for thousands of years and has good results with this unique channel theory approach.
