Insomnia is characterized by persistent difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep despite having all the conditions conducive to normal sleep. It’s a symptom of a sleeping disorder. Due to lack of sleep, insomniacs typically suffer from functional impairment while awake.
Insomnia could happen because of neuroses, some cardiovascular and mental diseases and also due to damages of brain formations regulating correct alternation of a dream and wakefulness.
Normally healthy people could also have an occasional insomnia which could appear after a physical or intellectual over strain, exhaustion, or due to strong emotions.
It is possible and necessary to cope with this disease. But ideally without the pills, as they don’t help to bring a normal sleep, which must include dreaming, and also pills can create a dependency and the body could create a tolerance to drugs, requiring an increased dosage.
Therefore I would like to offer simple and accessible to everyone ways to get rid of insomnia without resorting to medicine.
First using Moxa heat up the basic power points as shown on figures 1 to 3.
and points corresponding to kidney. These points are on the back of a palm in small recesses ( figures 5 and 6 ). Massage those areas using your fingers, without applying too much pressure.
Do these two procedures before going to sleep.
If after trying those techniques a few times you are still not getting the desired effect, try to add the following technique in addition to the ones mentioned earlier.
Place fingers according to figure 7 and hold them for 3 to 4 minutes. You should feel relaxed now and will quickly fall asleep.
If you woke up and can’t fall back asleep simply paint up finger tips by dark blue felt-tip pen. This procedure is especially good for children who can’t sleep.
Finally, if you are tormented by bad dreams, before you are going to sleep, massage the point specified on figure 8.
Use for this purpose any not too sharp object (for example a ball pen without ink, etc.). Massage this point on both feet for 2 to 3 minutes.
