Insomnia is  commonly treated with acupuncture. Patients seeking treatment for insomnia frequently suffer from ether a deficiency condition or repletion condition or a combination of both.

An excellent example of a deficiency sleep pattern, for anyone who has cared for an infant, is a baby wakes up every few hours to eat.  This is a deficiency condition. The baby needs calories.  Another excellent example of a deficiency sleep pattern is seen during menopause.  A woman in menopause has a deficiency of estrogen. This deficiency interrupted sleep due to heat symptoms caused by the deficiency.

An example of a repletion sleep disorder is when a person is unable to sleep because they are worried about work, school, or other issue keeping them from sleeping.
