A 7 years old girl visited my clinic with her mother because she couldn’t have fallen asleep with nervousness thinking too much before going to bed for about 2 months.
When I checked her neck and shoulder area, the area was tight. Before giving her the pediatric acupuncture, I shook her body from her legs laying her on her back, but her chest and above were not shaking so much due to the tightness.
I touched her neck and shoulder area with a round-tip needle to loosen the area in addition to the pediatric acupuncture and finished the first treatment.
When she came for the second treatment, her sleep was improved and when I shook her body from her legs, her chest and the above was shaking a little, but her neck was still tight.
After the second treatment, the tightness around her neck was gradually loosened up. When I gave her 3 more treatments, I ended the course of the treatments for her sleep and nervousness since she could sleep well and the tightness in her chest and the above disappeared.
It seems like this was the case that the nervousness caused the tightness in the chest, neck and shoulders, resulting in difficulty of falling asleep.
