Home 5 Conditions 5 Sleep Disorder

Singapore Paincare TCM Wellness provides holistic TCM treatment for sleep disorders. Our Yin-Yang harmony approach to alleviating sleep problems focuses on the correction of qi flow for long-term healing and improvement.


TCM view

Sleep problems can be due to a variety of factors, including emotional issues or stress, food intake, caffeine consumption, too much or too little movement in daily life, and a general decline in health. These factors affect the Qi of our heart, affecting sleep.

There are a few types of insomnia: acute, transient and chronic.

Symptoms / Diagnosis

General sleep time is shortened, or deep sleep duration is insufficient. Some patients have difficulties falling asleep while others may wake up multiple times during the night. In serious cases, they may not get much sleep at all. Patients may also have dizziness, heart palpitation, forgetfulness, and tiredness.


Our Herb Ionto Sleep Harmony treatment uses pre-selected herbs to help patients with sleep issues or suffering from long-term insomnia. With a gentle electric current, herbal extracts are delivered transdermally through your feet to relax your senses and correct qi imbalances. Regular Herb Ionto Sleep Harmony treatments will improve the quality of your sleep in the long run.

What Are The Benefits of This Treatment?

This programme aims to help you sleep better in terms of duration and quality – thus improving your health and quality of life.

What To Expect During The Treatment?

You may feel slight pins and needles or a tingling sensation during this treatment that should be within your comfort range.

How Many Sessions Are Needed To See Improvement And How Often?

We recommend at least 6 sessions for sustained improvement of the sleep condition. Treatment should be done once a week or more to see better results. Symptom reduction varies among individuals, depending on the severity and length of time in which the condition has persisted. We typically see our patients’ conditions improve after 3 treatment sessions.

Is It a Safe Treatment?

Iontophoresis is generally considered to be a safe procedure.

Iontophoresis also stimulates the local circulation and hence there may be a slight reddening of the skin after treatment, which should subside on its own after a few hours.

Who Are a Suitable For This Treatment?

Generally, Wellness Herb Ionto is suitable for most people except for women who are pregnant or those with epilepsy history, heart conditions or are using pacemakers or have metal implants.

Patients should delay treatment if they have a recent wound, skin graft, or scar in the area requiring treatment, as iontophoresis may be painful and the treatment less effective.

Are There Any Post Treatment Advisory?

  • The patient will be provided with an exercise manual and if necessary
  • During this period, make sure you consume more nutritious foods and stay away from cold beverages.
  • Try to avoid stressful or emotional situations as much as possible.
