VB, male, aged 33 years

“I had acupuncture because I was having problems sleeping at night. This was something that had been going on for several years now and it was getting to a point when I was struggling to do my work the next day. I was prescribed medication from my GP but I was having too many side effects which I wasn’t happy about. I researched acupuncture and found it was great for treating sleeping problems and insomnia. I had 12 sessions in total over 4 months and from the first session onwards I found I could sleep through the night. I was astounded by the result. At first I had acupuncture on a weekly basis, then fortnightly and finally monthly until I felt ready to stop.”
