I have successfully treated many cases of insomnia using the following protocol from Dr. So:
Heart 7, Bl 13, Lu 9, Sp 1
Sp 6, Sp 9, Ki 6, Ht 6, PC 6
For new cases two treatments usually are enough. Long term cases require perhaps ten visits. I also advise patients to massage H 7 and Sp 1 with the eraser end of a pencil before bed. Dr. Shen would say of most insomnia patients that their digestion was somehow impaired. He’d also treat St 36 and used his own formulation of the patent remedy Gui Pi Wan or Kwei Be Wan (Restore Spleen Pill).
