In TCM, it is believed that the waking-sleeping pattern is similar to the yin/yang cycle, thus trouble sleeping is totally linked to some disruptions in this cycle.
Diagnosing the root causes of insomnia is the first important step. Then, the therapist will use silicon or glass cups on areas needing tension release, thus restoring better sleep. As a pleasant side effect of this insomnia treatment, you will experience proper oxygenation and blood flow, more energy throughout the day, better digestion, improved cognition, channels receiving better flow of energy movement, release of tension in the muscle area, restful and deep sleep and many.
