Acupuncture for Insomnia: Sleep and Dreams in Chinese Medicine
What you will learn
- Diagnose and treat Insomnia.
- Apply the Eight Extraordinary vessels for diagnosis and the regulation of sleep.
- Recognize and interpret the movements of Wei Qi, the state of Xue-Blood, and the state of Shen-Mind/Spirit and their relation to the patient state.
- Explain Western and Eastern physiology and pathology of sleep.
- Identify insomnia & sleep disturbances patterns in Chinese medicine.
Decorated with anecdotes from Chinese Medicine’s history and almost 50 years of experience practising Chinese Medicine, this course covers the whole range of Insomnia.
In our modern world, sleep disturbance has become an ever-increasing complaint, affecting almost 40% of the population and disturbingly a large proportion of children.
Sleep is the most representative of the body’s circadian rhythms; it becomes an excellent indicator of the inner equilibrium of yin and yang and the five substances. The Eight Extraordinary vessels, acting as inner regulators, maintain the internal balance and adapt to external changes.
Therefore, a detailed assessment of sleep patterns and dreams can accurately evaluate a person’s overall psycho-energetic state.

thorough, descriptive and explanatory
Really appreciate Dr Montakab’s depth of knowledge and experience. This class was so thorough, descriptive and explanatory. He gives us an in-depth look at all of the aspects of insomnia, sleep patterns and the internal movement of qi. I am sure it will be invaluable in the clinic.
Very deep teaching
Very deep teaching
I enjoyed this course very much because Hamid Montakab explains a lot of things I have also been asking myself questions about (What is running piglett qi? What is meant by the rising of clear yang? Why are there 2 representations of the 5 elements?) His system is elaborated and diffenciates different patterns of insomnia so that you can really treat individual complaints. I still have to look into my notes, but I already had some good results. – Very entertaining and instructive: background stories of H. Montakabs teachers in China and Hong Kong, his clinical examples, and what he has learned from the classics.
Contents are great for learning more about sleep stages and how to treat sleeping problems. Really enjoyed this course. The course is worth following ! Thanks Dr. Hamid Montakab for sharing your experience.
