There could be multiple reasons behind sleepiness, so I would need more detailed information on family and individual medical history as well as current signs and symptoms. Generally speaking, acupuncture and Asian medicine can definitely help the condition. And, depending on the condition, the patient is expected to be committed to long-term treatment and care, especially if it is chronic and internal condition.
I hope this will help answer to the question and I am always be ready for further questions, thank you.
