Here’s what Chinese medicine has to say about Sleep
- In traditional Chinese medicine, insomnia and poor quality sleep are primarily due to a disturbance in the flow of Shen (mind and spirit). Shen regulates conscious awareness and settles in the Heart organ-meridian during sleep. Chinese medicine describes the Heart as the residence of Shen i.e. the organ-meridian system which channels Shen to the brain during our waking state and to which Shen returns during sleep.
- The cyclical movement of Shen between the brain and Heart is part of the body’s circadian rhythm.
- In traditional Chinese medicine, symptoms of stress and worry are commonly associated with a disturbance in the flow of Shen (mind and spirit), which is strongly affected by physical stress, mental pressures and strong emotions.
