For many people, sleeping well feels impossible. At Wellnest Denver Acupuncture, we know that getting a good night’s sleep is not only within reach – it can be simple, too. With acupuncture, you can find the natural sleep solution you’re dreaming of.

FAQ: Wellnest Denver Acupuncture for Insomnia
Curious about how acupuncture can help you overcome insomnia and get the best sleep of your life? Get answers to some of our most frequently asked questions:
How does acupuncture treat insomnia?
Chinese medicine sees insomnia and other sleep issues as symptoms, not diseases. Everyone presents with slightly different patterns and therefore requires different acupuncture treatment protocols and herbs.
In general, acupuncture works by putting the body in a restful state that encourages healthy sleep patterns. You’ll feel calm, relaxed, and even sleepy during your session, but the real magic takes place at home. Over time, acupuncture treatments improve your sleep-wake cycle and combat the underlying issues that prevent restful sleep in the first place (like stress, anxiety, hormone imbalance, pain, or other issues).
What types of sleep issues can acupuncture help with?
- Hypersomnia & Narcolepsy
- Sleep Disturbances
- Sleep Apnea
- Dream-Disturbed Sleep & Nightmares
- Nighttime Pain
- Chronic Stress
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder
- General Mood Balance & Mindfulness
How many acupuncture treatments will I need to improve my sleep?
No. In fact, many people experience a boost in energy after acupuncture! However, it’s normal to feel sleepy during or right after your acupuncture session. When it’s possible, take it easy on the days you have acupuncture and enjoy some extra rest. After a few sessions, you will notice a significant improvement in your sleep, as well as your energy and mood.
Will acupuncture make me more tired than I already am?
If you’re nervous about needles, you can still enjoy a powerful acupuncture session. Our treatments are gentle and relaxing – most people are surprised at how little they feel the needles. We’ll explain each step of the treatment and ensure you feel comfortable all at times.
If you’re not ready to try acupuncture but still want to use Chinese medicine to improve your mental health, we have options! From ultra-gentle, non-needle treatments to herbal medicine, lifestyle recommendations, and more, we can help you find a healthy, happy emotional balance.

Can I get acupuncture if I take sleeping medications?
Acupuncture works in tandem with the medications prescribed by your doctor. In many instances, acupuncture can help medications work better and reduce their side effects. With time and a strategic approach, we may be able to reduce or eliminate your sleep medications in collaboration with your doctor.
Are there any side effects of acupuncture for insomnia?
Acupuncture is 100% safe and natural. It’s normal to feel a slight pinch or tingle during your treatment, but those sensations subside after a few seconds and you will start to feel relaxed.
In addition to seeing noticeable improvements in your sleep, you will also notice healthier digestion, less pain, more energy, and a general sense of wellbeing.
