According to traditional Chinese medicine, people are injured by the seven emotions, that is, anger, worry, sorrow, and fright, resulting in the imbalance of qi and blood, yin and yang, and the dysfunction of the internal organs, so that the mind is disturbed, and the gods do not keep up and do not sleep.

Here, we select some commonly used TCM treatment methods according to the therapeutic classification of the national standard “TCM Clinical Diagnosis and Treatment Terminology” and make a brief introduction.

Acupuncture therapy uses acupuncture and moxibustion to apply certain techniques to the meridians and acupoints outside the meridians of the human body to regulate the health of qi and blood, adjust the functions of the meridians and viscera, and treat related diseases.

General psychotherapy. Through explanation and guidance, patients can understand the basic knowledge of sleep and reduce unnecessary anticipatory anxiety reactions.

Behavioral therapy. Perform relaxation exercises that are taught to be done before falling asleep to speed up the fall asleep and reduce anxiety.

Hypnotherapy for insomnia

Tang Ximing’s demonstration of using hypnotherapy to treat insomnia has been used for the treatment of physical and psychological diseases since the initial development of hypnosis, so it is also widely used. Hypnotherapy is widely used in the treatment of insomnia.

Hypnotherapy for insomnia is a psychotherapeutic method that uses certain hypnotic techniques to make people enter a hypnotic state, and uses positive hints to control the patient’s psychosomatic state and behavior, and eliminates negative thoughts such as anxiety, tension, and fear through positive thoughts.

Hypnotherapy has a very high effect on insomnia. Under the inducement of the hypnotist’s language, the patient can achieve relaxation in the whole body and even in the depths of the soul. The step-by-step guidance of the hypnotist can help the patient get rid of all the cruxes that affect sleep; Then, through the sharp language instructions, all the factors that cause stress, tension, anxiety, and frustration can be vented, and the deep cause is eliminated by the hypnotist, so that the patient can experience the pleasure and pleasure of psychosomatic relaxation. As long as you experience this relaxation regularly, it is just around the corner to restore normal sleep function.

Insomnia caused by physical ailments can also be treated as an adjunct to hypnotherapy. The subconscious mind plays a great role in regulating and controlling the body’s endocrine, respiration, digestion, blood circulation, immunity, and substance metabolism. When the heart is full of negative emotions such as anxiety and tension, there will be a large amount of P substance and norepinephrine released in the body, which will cause the blood vessels of the whole body to constrict, qi stagnation and blood stasis, and various physical and mental diseases will arise from this. When people are happy, laughing, and recalling happy experiences, they will secrete a large amount of enkephalin, which has a pain-relieving ability more than 200 times that of natural morphine, and is the main analgesic system in the human body. If positive emotions, good feelings and correct concepts are continuously strengthened in the hypnotic state, and negative emotions such as anxiety and tension are eliminated, the central nervous system of the human brain will also secrete a large amount of enkephalins, which not only has a pain-relieving effect, but also makes people feel peaceful and tranquil, thereby improving sleep quality.

The magnetic field affects the current distribution of the human body, the movement of charged particles, the permeability of the membrane system, etc., which changes the physiological and biochemical processes of tissue cells, and produces analgesia, swelling, and promotes blood and lymphatic circulation.
