Thank you Rawcookie. I'm always up for more information and, having read a little yesterday on the Meridians, my black coffee at work is out of the window and being replaced by fruit herbal teas! Every little thing counts.
I have tried many things over the years and, after 6 years of very poor sleep, acupunture is a last resosrt. It is just about affordable in the UK and I am already down to fortnightly visits which make the cost a bit more bearable.

If anyone wants to try balancing their meridians and can't afford acupuncture - try searching for Qi Gong exercises on YouTube - there are some here on Spark People too. If you google it, you can find charts showing which meridians are related to which times of the day - for example I tended to wake at 5am - which is related to Metal energy (Lung and Large Intestine) - and then I looked for the exercises that would help move the energy in those meridians. If you google something like 'I always wake at 5am' you will probably hit on some Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine information that will lead you to the information you need.

I'm a long way from being "cured" but having seen some initial results I'm happy to carry on, even though I have to pay for it privately in the UK.
I've also got more energy, my congestion from allergic asthma is a lot less and - over the last week - I've lost just under 2 lb, my plateau having ended shortly after my first treatment.
I wish you every success if you pursue this too.

I took a decision recently to try acupunture for a number of issues, including a 5-6year run of poor sleep. Like anyone I was skeptical but still approached it with an open mind.
I've had 3 treatments now over a 3.5week period. The changes were subtle to start with - rather than waking up at 1.30am it changed to 3.30am. Rather than stay awake, I would roll over and go back to sleep. So I thought - BONUS! However, the last 3 and I repeat 3 nights, I have slept all the way through - around 5.5hrs a night straight sleep.
