Yes, acupuncture from a licensed acupuncturist can be helpful to address insomnia. The type or cause of the insomnia is diagnosed from a traditional Asian medical protocol first, and then a treatment method is designed for the individual.
Acupuncture can work for insomnia, you also need to find out your root cause. look at your lifestyle as well. Are your high stressed at work? Do you exercise enough during the day so that you are tired enough at night? Do you have season depression? People from the North East have less Sunshine effecting Melatonin levels so you might just need some Melatonin with Acupuncture. You find an Acupuncturist near you. that is licensed and belongs to the NCCAOM. Good Luck!
Hello and thank you for the question.

Yes, acupuncture is good for insomnia. Insomnia can be tricky depending on the chronicity. If someone has had insomnia for many years, it can be very slow to improve. People who
have insomnia for a short duration can generally improve much quicker. I have noticed that in general it is always good to have healthy sleeping habits and not deprive oneself of sleep due to work and very busy schedules for a long time. The people who do tend to develop chronic sleeping difficulties. Anyhow, consult with an acupuncturist who has experience with
it and you should be able to have improvements.
Good luck.
