Since I became a new mum and I have gotten used to breaking rest and sleeping at all odd hours. Now I have trouble sleeping at night. Are there any TCM treatments that can help?

You can consider doing acupuncture along TCM herbal medication. In TCM, we believe sleep occurs when the Ying in our body enter into the Yang of our body. And that sleep is also very much related to the function of our heart and spleen. Therefore, we would aim to regulate these through acupuncture and herbal medication, which would eventually help with the process and quality of sleep.
