It is still a mystery for scientists, why our body needs such a long period of time of rest and how does it actually work. But they all agree that people need sleep for optimal health and well-being. During this time our brain works very hard – it solidifies and consolidates memories and process an incredible amount of information gathered thought the whole day. A body requires this time to restore and rejuvenate, to grow muscle, to repair tissue and to produce valuable hormones. Sleep influences our emotions, reactions and good health. After good night’s sleep you can think clearly, react quickly and you are in a good mood. Sleep deprivation can increase the risk of high blood pressure and heart disease.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine the sleep cycle is a dynamic interaction between Yin and Yang coupled with an underlying spirit – Shen.
Sleeping is a very important component to maintain the balance of Yin and Yang within the body. The daily and seasonal cycles in the nature have an influence on Yin and Yan in the universe. TCM emphasizes that the human body is programmed to live in harmony with the rhythm of nature. Therefore everybody has to take care of deep and calm sleep.
