Combating Neck Pain with Sleep Hygiene and Acupuncture

Neck Pain + Sleep Hygiene

Do you often wake up with a stiff neck despite a good night's sleep? You're not alone. Neck pain is a common discomfort that can ruin a good morning. But did you know that your bedtime routine and sleep environment could be the culprit? Let's explore how a blend of sleep hygiene and acupuncture can offer relief.

Your Bedtime Routine: The Unseen Culprit

Picture this: You're ready for bed, feeling fresh after a shower, and you've diligently avoided screens for the last 30 minutes. You fall asleep quickly, only to wake up with a painful neck. Surprisingly, habits like sleeping with damp hair or near an open window can contribute to this discomfort, as per Chinese medicine principles.

The Role of Acupuncture 

Enter Dr. Lauren at Yōso Wellness Spa, an expert in blending traditional acupuncture techniques with modern wellness practices. Acupuncture, an ancient Chinese medicine practice, involves stimulating specific points on the body to relieve pain and promote healing. Dr. Lauren specializes in identifying the right points to target neck pain effectively.

 A Personalized Approach

Every individual is unique, and so is their neck pain. Dr. Lauren conducts a thorough intake to understand the root cause of your discomfort. In many cases, simple lifestyle tweaks, such as using a blow dryer and adjusting airflow, can make a significant difference. Additionally, herbal support may be recommended for holistic healing.
