Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To observe the clinical therapeutic effect of the needling method for regulating wei and strengthening brain on insomnia.

METHODS

Two hundred cases of insomnia were randomly divided into a test group and a control group, 100 cases in each group. The test group were treated with the needling method for regulating wei and strengthening brain with Baihui (GV 20), Dazhui (GV 14), Shenmai (BL 62), Zhaohai (KI 6) and ear points Yuanzhong, Shenmen selected; and in the control group, Sishencong (EX-HN 1), Shenmen (HT 7) and Sanyinjiao (SP 6) were selected. Acupuncture was given once daily for 15 days. Pittsburgh sleep quality index (PSQI) was used for scoring before and after treatment.

RESULTS

The total effective rate was 89.0% in the test group and 65.0% in the control group with a very significant difference between the two groups (P<0.01); the difference of PSQI scores before and after was -9.15+/-5.68 in the test group and -5.64+/-5.73 in the control group, with a very significant difference before and after treatment in the two groups (P<0.01).

CONCLUSION

The therapeutic effect of the needling method for regulating wei and strengthening brain on insomnia is better than that of normal needling method.
