‘A sleepless night is as long as a year.’ Chinese Proverb
The British Acupuncture Council, the UK’s largest professional body for traditional acupuncturists, is launching Acupuncture Awareness Week from 25th February- 3rd March 2012. The campaign aims to help patients understand the benefits of traditional acupuncture by providing information so people can make informed health choices. This year Acupuncture Awareness Week will be focusing on the use of acupuncture for sleep problems and insomnia.
I will be at the Farmer’s Market in Newport on Friday 1st March to celebrate Acupuncture Awareness Week, handing out cards and leaflets. Come along and have a chat if you would like to know more about acupuncture.

“Traditional acupuncture is known to be enormously beneficial for helping to correct sleep problems. Most people find treatment wonderfully relaxing, as acupuncture is known to calm the nervous system and also increase endorphin production.”
Maureen Cromey (British Acupuncture Council member)
Supporting Acupuncture Awareness Week is actress and singer Toyah Willcox who, like many others, feels that acupuncture has made a huge impact to her life. “Having suffered with chronic insomnia since I was 14, I had to learn to make it work for my lifestyle”, says Toyah. “However, I realised I needed to do something about it when I was made aware of the detriment it has on your health and immune system. I won’t take sleeping pills and it’s actually better not to medicate chronic sufferers of insomnia anyway. I now have regular traditional acupuncture to help let my body heal itself. When I’m having a treatment I fall into a deep sleep straight away, which gives me immediate relief.”
