New York/Stuttgart – Thieme Medical Publishers is proud to announce the publication of "Acupuncture for Insomnia: Sleep and Dreams in Chinese Medicine", a text that presents a highly effective treatment for chronic and acute sleeplessness using therapeutic strategies from both TCM as well as Classical Chinese Medicine. This text provides a complete background on the physiology, causes, and treatment of sleep disorders, drawing parallels between concepts of Western and Chinese Medicine, and it classifies all acupuncture points that affect sleep to help in choosing the most appropriate treatment.

"Hamid Montakab, M.D., the inspired author of this book, has taken on the vision and task beyond the current literature available on sleep, insomnia, and dreams.  Sharing his vision not only from his understanding of the research from Western medicine, but also weaving the wisdom of Chinese medicine and the influence of French acupuncture, Dr. Montakab has created a comprehensive approach for delving into the mystery of sleep.  Beyond the alpha waves, hormones, circadian rhythms, and wandering hun, Dr. Montakab investigates the significance of sleep to the essence of our spirit.  With the integration of these various traditions, the content of this book will provoke the clinician, comfort the patient, and implore the reader to utilize these protocols." – From the Foreword by Jeffrey C. Yuen, Daoist Traditions (College of Chinese Medical Arts)

Written from the unique perspective of a physician who is also trained in TCM and classical acupuncture, the book presents numerous case examples, and an up-to-date review of scientific studies on Chinese medicine and sleep. It is an essential reference for all acupuncture practitioners who provide optimal treatment to patients with insomnia, sleep disorders, and other sleep pathologies.
